It has been very rewarding to be here in PSO forum. Everyone helps one another, great trainers, discussions and advices from fellow members. How fun will it be if we can know a little more what everyone is doing besides poker?

Pick the choice that best represents you and let's find out the demographics of future Poker Stars right here!

Although I'm a retiree, I play more for the challenge than anything else. I spent 20 years in the computer industry, when learning new systems was an everyday routine. After I retired, I found I missed the constant learning that was a big part of my job.

Poker replaced that challenge for me, you can "learn the game in ten minutes, but take a lifetime to master it". (not sure who I'm quoting, it's close at least) The challenge of building a BR from zero and continuing to build at a steady pace is enough to keep me working on my game.

Having fun doing this counts too, of course!!

I dropped out of tenth grade to go to trade school for carpentry and I went on to become a jack of all trades , master of none
I was a roofer for ten years , but It's hard on knees and back so I've been installing siding for last 18 years or so.With many construction jobs along the way

I plan on winning the lotto soon and playing poker fulltime
My age is catching up to me now so that lotto win is gonna happen this weekend.I got a good feeling about it

I Work in a shop, not glamorous or exciting, but it pays the bills. Wouldn't mind my poker skills developing enough to augment my income, but I'm realistic, so ill believe it when I see it. Still gonna try, though.

Great to hear from everyone! For me, I'm self-employed. Many yearn for flexible hours, but it's really a double-edged sword. Low discipline will lead to procrastination. But I'm glad I'm able to have more hours to play poker. Hope to become to a full time pro. Still got lots and lots to learn from everyone

I fit into 3 of them... and since I can't pick multiple, didn't want to only pick one.

Retired and loving it. I quit full time work in 2000 and worked part time for 10 years. My poker "career" began only 6 years ago, although I have played many other card games since childhood. Anyone remember "Go Fish"? That is how I sometimes play poker, much to my chagrin.

I'm an undergraduate student, doing 2 majors, one in business and one in philosophy. I think poker is a lot of fun and it's a fascinating game, so I just want to become better at it, don't really have the ambition to do poker for a living, though I wouldn't mind if some day it will be a profitable activity
