    JAmes Holzhauer transitions form Jeopardy to Hold Em

    Sorry about errors in title, inundated today for real.

    You know what that is gents?

    That is STRAIGHT pro. He crushes it in Jeopardy and reallocates the winnings to a more controllable form of income/gambling that he will thoroughly enjoy as well.

    He will me awesome at that too, watch it happen.

    That is very impressive, imo.

    Need to stop drinking the gambling koolaid man, you seem to have the delusion of grandeur in mind when it comes to poker/gambling.

    He's playing a couple of tournaments for shits n giggles. He played professional back in early 2000s.

    After tax, he probably receives $1.5M. He can invest that and annually make 100k minimum. He will have many offers from data analytic roles from sports teams and other highly coveted positions. He will not be grinding poker for a living 110% sure of that. Playing poker for a living is not fun for 99% of those who try and go professional. It does not build a career either. Similar to bartending, uber driving, etc, should only be considered side income / hobby at best.

    Eags I respectfully disagree. I'm that good. I do think you're a better player and bettor than me though, vastly.

    But I can't return to that as a hobby until my business is officially successful, which it isn't quite yet.

    If he's smart and I believe he is. He will not go near a poker game. Take the money and invest it.

    I'm excited to see it!

    Yeah man it's a good look for both games

    Very cool

    I especially like it given Alex's recent sad news. He's been so good to so many people for so long.
