American Fork, UT (PressExposure) June 10, 2008 -- Remember ten years ago when it was unheard of for a network like ESPN to broadcast a poker game? Without a doubt, the popularity of gambling as a form of recreation has grown exponentially in the last few years, due in large part to the internet. Today you can find tips and tricks on poker for free on the official ESPN website.
A new kind of athlete is maturing before our eyes - the professional gambler.
With huge winnings such as those of Erick Lindgren which total $374,505 in the Event 4 at WSOP this year, suddenly it doesn't sound like such a bad idea to start training your gaming skills instead of getting your body physically fit to compete on the football field.
Physical sports always left the smaller athletes at a disadvantage, but physical size has no bearing on results at a poker or a roulette table. Many players now remain physically invisible as they make their wagers online and pick up fast easy winnings thanks to evolving technology and the world-wide web.
In the twenty-first century, you don't have to be a Michael Jordan to make enormous sums of money as an athlete, and now you don't even have to get up from your computer in order to play.
Dan Soulsby, professional online gambler and author of Casino Cash Cow, reveals his success. "I made Â£20,000 betting online in just one month, and all that money was tax-free!" When asked about how he was able to accomplish such incredible results, he answered saying, "I'm giving away my method for winning huge at casinos starting this week. You can visit onlinecasinocash.co.uk and request a free access to what I call the "leveler" system. I've used it over and over and I only play in safe casinos that always pay no matter what they think of anybody's playing style."
One advantage of the professional gambler is that the individual's physical conditioning has almost no effect whatsoever on ability to play. Compare that to the average professional football player who only lasts five years whereas professional gamblers can continue gaming throughout their entire lives. Due to the reasons stated here, we can only expect to see the number of professional gamblers grow in the next few years.
