If you’re looking to actually become a poker pro there are a few things you should consider before making the leap. PPPpoker just made an excellent post about the Skills you need to Become a Poker Pro and I seriously advice everyone to read up on it as it has some great value for semi-pro players and recreational players too…

From the post:
This boom in popularity, combined with a seemingly endless flow of “dead money,” resulted in a huge number of players trying their hand at playing poker professionally. Yet many were to be unsuccessful, as either their luck expired or as they ran into games that were too tough for them. Even competent players may be doomed to failure, as the life of a professional poker player takes more than just skills at the table.
