Embarking on a Blackjack Career
Do you want to earn lots of money while playing blackjack? If your answer is yes, then it would be nice to know that blackjack is a game where you can get rich. The best part is that you don't have to quit your present job to do that.
As long as you have the talent and skills to win in blackjack, you can become a professional blackjack player. However, going pro is not always a convenient option for most blackjack players. For one, being a professional blackjack player is not a safe and secure job, unlike working in a big company.
Another thing is that it's not easy to turn pro, even if you have the right skills and mindset. Since a professional career has no assurances and guarantees, you can expect to be on the red during the first few months or years of your career. That is why it is important to embark on a part-time career first before going full-time.
An ideal setup is to work full-time during the day and then play blackjack after work. Many blackjack players are comfortable with this setup and have no problems with it. Having a permanent job is more financially secure than playing blackjack full-time. A day job acts as a safety net in case your forays into blackjack is unsuccessful.
If for example you lost a lot of money while playing blackjack at the casinos, you can always make up for financial losses through your job. If you are lucky enough to win, you can set aside that money for other expenses and use your income from your job for the really important expenses.
If you are planning to embark on a professional blackjack career, you should set short-term and realistic goals. To achieve this, you should keep a written record of your wins and losses. By consulting this record from time to time, you will get a good idea on whether to continue pursuing a pro career or not.
A part-time blackjack career has several advantages over a full-time career. If you lose big in blackjack it will not be as painful and devastating because you can still recover your losses through your other job. On the other hand, losing money in a full-time career is very tough to swallow for most professionals, since they are largely dependent on games and tournaments to make ends meet.
A part-time career has its disadvantages, too. You will not have enough time to study and practice your game, and improvement in your skills will be relatively slow.
There's no harm in becoming a full-fledged blackjack professional, if you are confident with your skills that you can feed yourself and your family from your earnings in blackjack. Just go slow and progress step by step up the blackjack career ladder, and when luck and fortune favors you, you can jump straight into the lucrative world of blackjack pros.
