How To Become a Profitable Mid-Stakes Poker Player

First, the results. Since the World Series of Poker last year, I've played 174 hours of poker. I play limit hold'em, with almost all of my play at the $10/20 or $15/30 level. In that time I've made $7594, which is $43.70 per hour.

I say that I'm a semi-professional, because obviously 5 hours of "work" per week isn't really playing at a professional level. Statistically speaking, it's also somewhat possible that I've just gotten lucky over this time. Considering my level of understanding of the game, including knowing what I don't know, honest evaluation of the competition, and a general comfort level with the game, I can objectively say that I don't think luck plays a large part in my results.

Anyway, I say all that to let you judge for yourself my playing level, rather than having to take my word for it. Real professionals might disagree with some of my advice, but I'm offering it because I think that it's difficult to find the correct path towards becoming a winning poker player, and I've now discovered one such path.

$50 Bounty: Submit Evidence of a Game of Wyoming Hold'em

On The Singularity Now

To get this bounty, all you have to do is send me photo or video evidence of having played this game, as well as a one paragraph description of yourself and/or your experience.

I will mail $50, cash or check, to anyone who submits photo or video evidence proving that they played this game before I get around to playing it myself.

Here are the rules of Wyoming Hold'em, which I made up last week:

In Texas Hold'em there would be a final round of betting, but here no more betting needs occur since everyone can see all of the cards. Hopefully everyone wrote down their hand at the beginning, since now it's impossible to tell who shot which card. Distribute the spoils, then repeat.
