No Longer Enjoy Poker? Maybe It's Time to Quit.

Doyle Brunson made a comment earlier today that he was playing with a couple of professional poker players who say they no longer enjoy the game and that it's all about the money for them.

He then proceeded to tell them to seek another profession.

Sadly, this seems to be a growing trend among many professionals and wannabe poker professionals.

Somewhere along the line in the quest for trying to become rich and famous, they have stopped enjoying the game of poker.

When you've reached that point, the game becomes nothing but a straight job.

While this is a sad state to reach in one's poker career, it's one I sympathize with based on some of my own experiences.
