Professional gamblers are everywhere: in poker, sports betting, slots and blackjack, craps and roulette. There are enough of them to make most people aware of their existence. At the same time, the image of a Pro is often positioned exclusively as a positive hero of our time.
In the past, professionals were fanned with even more romantic images. Some of them were dispelled by Fyodor Dostoevsky. The great writer, has shown how risky could be the creation of illusions. However, smart people even before this understood that even those who treat the game professionally, in the end, can remain at the broken trough.
The most obvious and simple disadvantage of a professional game is harm to health. Usually a professional player spends a lot of time in one place, can gain extra weight or, on the contrary, lose it. One way or another, but the professional game provides a state of excitement, which falls into a person, and this harms the psychological health of the body.
It is the psychological aspects of human life that doctors often explain the deterioration of physical condition. Most often, gamblers have an upset stomach. Those who do not know what an ulcer is, can read about the disease in the medical reference book and wonder after consulting with a specialist about the many reasons that cause it. Disadvantages of the cardiovascular system, headaches up to migraines, manic-depressive syndrome this is an incomplete list of disorders that can lead to gambling addiction.
What are the problems of professional players?
Professional players also have problems with social adaptation. Family values in this case can take a back seat, and in general, the creation of a family can be put under a big question for many years to come. Your relationship with your next of kin may deteriorate.
What about society?
The society does not recognize the profession of a poker or blackjack player, so you should be prepared for this. The maximum you can expect is to publish in newspaper articles about the next success, which may be greater than the previous one. Otherwise, there are enough disadvantages. No pension contributions will be made for the player: neither the state nor the employer, and there can be no question of official employment. At the same time, you can also lose your main job, if there is one, of course.
What do you need to know about being professional?
Most Amateurs can hardly imagine the real state of Affairs among professionals. Many of these people would have been happy to quit if they weren’t driven by greed and excitement. Others simply do not see themselves in any other place, but each of them sooner or later comes a point when they stop being professionals for one reason or another.
