I understand that The Wizard and many others aspire to become professional gamblers one day. If you were to start today, what would be your game of choice, what strategies would you employ and why?

Well, I used to claim to be a professional keno player until one poor soul actually took me seriously.

I'd think its somewhat like that Tom Paxton tune about a bottle of wine ... "let me go home and start over". Ain't gonna happen but if I could, I'd just focus on getting rich. Nothing helps a professional gambler more than a steady income source.

I'd then choose either Pai Gow Poker or Pai Gow Tiles

Tiles and Baccarat.

Of course, I would have to already be rich, with all the money I would inevitably lose.

Maybe when I'm retired I'll tell people I'm a professional gambler.

I think bonus hunting online is still worth doing. Many more sites are open to Americans and have good bonuses.

I would also be flexible to do anything, which usually is some kind of promotion abuse. It helps to be connected to a group if you go that direction.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

A number of years ago I was unemployed for a few months, and the only income I had was from an occasional local poker game where I would win $20-$100 a month. I thought of myself as a professional poker player for that time.

Ha.... it was like a $1-$2 game or something, played mostly for fun.

No way I'd sit down at a real poker table in a casino. It's just not my game.

Poker is not a game. Its war.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

1. Fantasy football. Draft Kings, etc. Lots of professional gamblers have migrated there

2. (Weird answer) Sports betting: Women's professional tennis.

3. Pot-limit omaha, or poker games other than Texas hold'em.

4. Sports betting: any sport where I could get inside info on injuries.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.
