Posted on Thursday, May 31, 2018 by "T".
Many of us dream of ditching our boring, soul-crushing jobs in exchange for that easier and rewarding life filled with fun, excitement, and lots of money, but of course, what kind of gig should we get to achieve that? If poker is one of those answers, we all know too well that poker is not for everyone. But, one woman has proven that it doesn't take a very extraordinary skill to be able to make t[...]   Read more » Writer decides to write Book about Poker but Stops after Winning Thousands of Dollars playing it

Erik Seidel regret now that he has an extra opponent at the poker tables or is a good guy and is pleased that he has managed to create a very good poker player? These questions should be asked by somebody to find out what answer he will give in this regard. I think this story is like a good dream.

Lady luck is on her side?
Can you really make it that far, if you are not lucky at the end?
Having the guidance of a professional player is a big help of course,
but you need to be lucky also, to win tournaments like that.

A nice way to make a living. Don’t bother spending countless days weeks and months trying to write about the wonderful game, get out there an play it and try and make your fortune that way. If it all falls apart at least they can get back to the book and continue writing it again. I look forward to reading it sometime soon.

well kinda have to agree with a few comments above that playing poker is a way better and faster way to earn money than writing a book about poker, though only if in this situation, since only winning poker is better than writing a book, losing poker is of course not an option

Maria Konnikova's résumé absolutely stands out from the crowd. She has a bachelor's degree from Harvard University, and a Ph.D. from Columbia University. It is extremely difficult to get into such prestigious institutions.

I just took a glance at one of her best selling books titled “Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes.” Very well written and interesting. There is nothing sexier than a strong, smart, educated, and independent woman.

A faster way indeed to win money than selling the book.
unless of course we are talking about a best seller, which means a fortune from the books Smile
But with a subject like that, a best seller is not a possible outcome i believe.

Of course it is good when you have such good poker players teach you how to play poker like eric seidel. Maybe she say that dhe writes book and then meets poker pris and then learns some things from them try to play and wins so much that book is not interesting to her Big Smile

Confirmation of the old saying: those that can do it, do it. Those that can`t do it, teach it (or write about it). I guess there is far more value in actualy playing the thing, as the market for poker related books is already saturated.
