    I would LOVE to be a life coach. Someone paying me to tell them what to go do with themselves.

    Really? Do you play a lot of cash games at the local casino, or enter a wide variety tournaments? Or both? Or maybe online?

    And you must have an even keel temperament to be able to do it for a living. I know I'm ready to kick the dog everytime my Aces get cracked.

    I play mainly online cash games. The live games here are much softer than online, and I do play at the boat some weekends, but online I can play 12-15 tables at a time, getting me over 800 hands an hour. Live I will be lucky to get 30 hands an hour.

    I have been playing for a living for about a year and a half now and I love it. It can be very stressful (especially if you have a losing month), but the pros far outweigh the cons. Plus, I make way more money doing this than I would a regular job, so I figure I will ride the wave as long as I can.

    I played online quite a bit in law school.

    Eventually I just got frustrated with the number of people who played like total morons. It made it (for me, at least) far more difficult to bet effectively when two and three people at the table would chase flush draws all-in from the flop. When I'm at a casino, I can spot an idiot immediately by the way he carries himself at the table. Online, the recognition takes a little longer since I can't see him/her in person.

    I love playing poker -- I wish I had the time and money to do it more often.

    Believe it or not, it's not a bad living for some.

    Based upon the global industry study that I managed (using PricewaterhouseCoopers) in late 2006, the average rated charged by professional coaches is nearly $200 per hour (USD).
