With what has happened in the United States, I have been wondering what my life would look like after poker. People have been joking that finally big time grinders in the US like Nanonoko will be able to go outside, get laid and get a life! I enjoy the challenge and am trying constantly to play better. I enjoy playing against players I have never seen before and trying to figure out their style of play (no I don’t use poker software) and using different tactics on them. In short, it forces me to think, be creative and work towards a goal. Family life takes precedence over my poker playing, but the challenge for me is the really fun part.

You should have specify in the thread name online poker, not just poker. It's really hard to think life without poker especially if you like the game. If you only see it as a way to earn easy money you'll be hurt... financially. If you succesufully combine both situations it's really a very hard situation. Still, there will always be live poker but online poker is so much more entertaining than live poker. I really enjoy playing many hands in opposition to live poker where you play a lot less hands but the pots might be a bit bigger. In the end i think you can find other hobies too, as exciting as poker maybe but it won't be easy. For me blackjack is not a option, or other pure betting games for that matter. I think sport betting however might be an interesting thing to do.

Nice magatt, very amusing pic! As for life after poker, it sure is sucking around here. My wife is pleading that the U.S. and the poker sites resolve this crazy BS. She says I'm driving her knuts, but little does she know, I already thought she was there. lol Hope she don't read this! Well as you can see I'm just rambling because I'm needing a poker fix. Good Luck to All!
Of course there is, even the biggest grinders don't play as long as we think they play. Some of them play just 2-4 hours a day, beacause with ~40 tables at once they don't need to play more. There are also maniacs playing 8 hours a day or more, but, well - everyone does what he likes to do, even if it's a litlle bit stupid for others
I am a losing player and can not stop playing, very addictive and costly pastime. My mission this year is to become a profitable player and try my best to get a bankroll of a few $K by the end of the year. Good luck me.
