About a year and half ago I was in a position of not being able to pay for mortgage and other household bills. Me and my wife both were working full time and still we were not generating enough to have an average life. We were finding it hard to fulfil our kids needs and this is very important when they are growing up and listening to our advice on being good hard working people when they grow up. One day we were just mocking about Facebook playing free poker. I was always good in playing poker as I had been playing for a while now, then my wife had an idea. She wanted me to join an online poker room.
At first I said no because first of all we had no money second of all I want to save some money for our children’s need. She politely said ok how about you play with 20 pounds; we cannot lose a lot in that. I thought oh why not eh. So I signed up to a party poker site online. I joined the site with £20 and started playing after reading the terms and conditions carefully. I played for few hours and I saw my winnings was upto £100 so I stopped for the day. I didn’t tell my wife because I know she would be like play more. You should never be addicted to gambling and I don’t want to be doing this everyday.
I used that £100 to pay for the bill for that month and then we were struggling again. Then after 5 to 6 weeks I found a full tilt Rakeback £30 poker voucher for one online site in one of my men’s health magazines. So I thought why not eh I will just use this voucher to play again and see what happens. I started playing again and I played for few hours over the weekend for next few weeks and got my winnings to £300. From which I saved £200 and spent £100 for the household bills for that month and then I realized I have just saved £200. I kept playing for next months which took my winnings to up to £3000.
I wasn’t addictive to it I was making sure that I do not go over board with gambling and after 18 months of poker, I am a professional online poker player and my earning has gone upto £50,000. Our life has changed.
