I think most kakis here will tell you to concentrate on your studies first because becoming a pro in SG (unless you're really doing very well online) is close to impossible because there are no legal games to grind.

My advice: do finish your studies, and then use whatever time you have during the holidays to play poker.

Otherwise, pack up and go to Macau.

yea unless you are making 4-5k from poker every month better to be in school. come to think of it almost all sponsored poker stars pro have degree. even if u are good in poker, poker sites wouldnt sign any random degen gambler, unless your name is victor blom.

Yep... take your time to consider... If you are SGP, dun forget you still need to go NS... would you still have time to grind etc? Better to graduate first then think if it is a viable route for you...

Boy, you can quit poker for school but never quit school for poker.

After all your studies, you can have all time for poker but after poker, you might be too late for school.

if u quit school to play poker it is the start of the end of your life.
anywya i seriously doubt there are many people that can make profit at 25/50 hkd game at macau (after minus rent, food, entertainment((alcohol, party, girls)))
that said you could be a tournament pro. but what happens if u dont make big cash for 3 months?
at least if u study u can get a job in future and play poker part time to earn some extra income if u are good.
if u are really good and have some savings u can quit your job to fufil ur dream. and if u fail u just go back work.

Even if you are good now and make quite a bit , your interest might not sustain over decades ,

Maybe what you can do is before you enlist and after your exams , focus on putting in huge volumes over a period of like 3 months and see if u like it or not.

If you like it , do it.
