I think that bit was a very brave decision to give up her job to try and make a living at poker but it looks like it was the right one. I take my hat off to her for having the courage to do it and i hope she keeps getting success in the future

She had a job and quit it to play poker. I bet she was not starving when she finally left her job so why not trying poker. Reaching that high so fast, means that lady luck is on her side. Still young, so plenty of room to progress even further.
Congrats to her accomplishments, though I truly NOT believe that she only started playing poker half a year ago. Who knew the asians had their own Netflix knockoff, I certainly did not. Wish they would be good at coming up something original on their own.

If this woman wins more money from poker, it is obvious she had to leave the old place of his work and to focus on her career in this game. 190k is not winning very easily at Netflix or female football. More than that she can win more money from now on.

to play for only seven months and to come to this amount is great!dont know does other play fall on hers look or what,but if she continue like this,she will be in top 3 women players!quit job and do what she love and to earn lot form poker is dream story for everybody!
The article states that her boyfriend also a professional poker player so there's that. Otherwise not many players rise to the occasion this fast - even in Asia where there's no shortage of people who could do math and crunch their odds at any time during the game...
