Playing poker for a living takes a lot of research
Making a living playing poker? Many people might think this is unrealistic.
But Nate Avenson of Park Rapids has made it a reality.
The 28-year-old started playing poker at local events in 2003. He was working for a restaurant at the time and got hooked on poker after playing recreationally a few days a week in a local league.
After a while Avenson began frequenting an online poker forum, Pocket Fives.com, to learn more about strategy.
