Re: Zankas poker-journal

If you would put your poker skills to some other use - programming, or any other job that needs to think systematically and stay focused for long times, could you maybe earn a lot more with less work and less risk?

I remember being in Hanoi 18 years ago... It was very poor, a bit wild... whole city only had one traffic light. Change was already in the air, but it is unbelievable how fast the place has developed.
