Bret Atiyeh left his corporate job with a 401K and benefits to pursue his dream as a professional poker player. Bret shares that journey with us and sheds light on many poker-related misconceptions. We discuss online poker regulation, tracking software, competing in the World Series of Poker, amateurs who give up too much information at the poker table, women’s only poker tournaments (and the men who insist on entering). Bret answers listener questions about human behavior and gives advice to those thinking about leaving their day job to pursue poker full time.
