    Hi guys.
    I am 32 years old guy comming from Slovenia.
    MY speciality is playing poker game, which provided for my living for the last 5 years.
    I have IT college education and some knowledge in programming and web developing, but never used much of those.
    PRobabaly lot of you reading this is asking what the hell is poker guy doing on IM forums.
    Well to put long story short for quiet some time I was asking myself is there easier way to earn a living besides playing poker.Edges in poker are getting smaller and smaller and variance plays a big part , which over time takes toll on the person. Plus pasivie income is non existing.
    However 2 months ago my main pokersite (PokerStars) seize to operate in my country which for me is pretty much equal of baning poker overall ( games in which I excel are running only on pokerstars, for those more knowledgable those are 180m sng ).
    IT literally happened overnight so it came as a shock to me.
    So I was at cross road to switch and learn other poker format or learn new craft
    Thankfully I have some money aside so I can make comfortable living for some time + my wife is employed so I took my time to make a decision.
    Spoke with some people, read some books and some audiobooks which brought IM to my atention
    I also have access to pretty good torrent site dedicated to online buissnes, so I downloaded and watched quiet some material.Mostly about dropshiping. Without taking much of an action.
    At this moment I am in a dropshipping project with 2 other friends but also looking for side projecte of my own.
    I read and listen a lot, to the point where I dream about facebook ads, instagram, shipfiy, CPA etc.
    As you probably already know its lot of stuff hare and for newbie like me it could be quiet overwhelming.
    What to read, what to do, where to go etc .
    I hope I didnt made to dull or boring introduction.
    I am sure I will see you on the forums, for now thats it.
    Cheers and best of all

    Hey dude welcome! I played full time as well for some time too!

    If poker is still a passion why don't you build something for the poker community? ;)

    Hvala Pozdrav i tebi :)

    crosscheck and thanks for welcome.
    I have been giving some coachings for quiet some time and have small stabile of my own as well ( you teach perspective players and give them money to play for winning cut) but I dont feel I have anything new to give to community. I assume you think I could provide some books or video courses?
    MY life time earnings are in domain of 200k and there are like zillion of guys who overshadow me easily, so I feel dwarfed.
    Besides field is soo saturated , couse all the best players in thre world nowdays have their own video subscription sites and as if they are not big enough competition there are affiliate sites who also hire the best of coaches to make content with them, so competition is huuge.
    THat is why I decided to try some new thing , and learn perhaps something more usefull than playing game of cards.
    My rough expectations of this are to work my ass off in begining but end goal is to build some passive income stream and as a poker player thats nearly impossible.

    You know, on medium sized offshore poker sites, their regular tournaments average 100-300 participants. I know you specialize in 180s, but transitioning to smaller field MTTs shouldn't be that difficult to do.
