Did you see this in the news on the F train awhile back? Too bad it was only an art project.

I hate my crowded train ride. Nick, i wish I had as much time as you have.

You wish you had my time? Careful what you wish for. I can browse the web and write gibberish comments at my day job, online poker. But it’s not as fun as you might think. Yesterday after five hours play, I finished 4 out of the money in a poker tournament. Some idiot sucked out a flush with two running cards to beat my trips. A day’s pay gone, just like that. More brutal, take my word on this, than a crowded F train.

your day job is online poker?

I don't play poker as much now. I recently began working 20 hours a week as a standardized patient for Kaplan, and that's all the income I really need. Once poker was all I had. But it drains as much psychic energy from you as art does. If you are playing at the stakes I was in the live games, there is nothing "part time" about. You are doing it or not doing it. Now I am playing at lower stakes online, which means lower intensity, and I can do other things on the computer while I play. The investment is less. So I still make money but nothing like I did before. I love the game(online is a facsimile to the live game, with no social interaction, so never quite real or worthy except as a job). I just don't have the time and psychic energy to invest in real poker as before. I have felt the same about theatre many times.
