Doug Hull has been grinding $1/$2 professionally in Las Vegas for years, and now he’s ready to share the ugly the truth about going pro. He’s seen the poker scene chew up and spit out 'baby pros’ who come to town with a few buyins and a dream, and his message is “Beware.” His bottom line? If you have the skills to excel in poker, you can profit more by applying those skills to non-poker career pursuits, and then you might have the bankroll to retire early and play poker professionally like Hull does.
