Hello everyone. Let me introduce myself. I am Sahil Agarwal, Self Employed as a Professional Poker Player:). Yes, the independence arrived a couple months earlier. The people at my office didn’t want me to get free salary 😛 so they released me as soon as they could and yesterday was thus my final day at work.
Now that I have made a better but tougher career choice, I have to be a lot more disciplined and focused towards my work. I keep telling this to myself coz I know it won’t take long to disappear in this huge poker industry. I have never been a disciplined kid and focus has not been one of my strong points either, but while playing poker I am better at both. So it’s more like a challenge from me to myself.
My parents are not yet very happy with this decision of mine. They tried to convince me to not take this step but I have been very stubborn during those discussions and arguments. It is not an easy thing for anyone to digest and I cannot blame them for being worried. I just told them “I want to give Poker a shot. I think I am good at it and could do better. Give me some time to try it out. If I fail, I ll find myself a job and get back to the routine life.” Already short of options, they agreed and gave me a year’s time to do whatever I want to. I sincerely thank them for being so supportive.
So, I will kickstart my pro career by moving down to Calcutta to grind with the beasts for a week or two. With the softer fields on PokerStars nowadays, and having two great poker minds (Adi and Prabhat) alongside, I am expecting a big score. Just need to run like I’ve been running:) (May be a li’l better would do:P).
I have put up a huge Sunday schedule for tomorrow and am selling action for the same. You can find the details here.
Enough talking, let’s make some money now 😀
