All his bags were packed and ready to go…
With no aspirations to obtain a 4.0 GPA, become an Architect or anything of that nature, Robert Stan packed up his bank roll along with a few thousand hours of poker experience and headed west to Las Vegas. Although many would view poker as a game, a gamble and associate it with luck, Robert views it as a profession. As with any trade, to have success you must have discipline and practice to improve. He has documented his journey through a blog, authored his own book and currently hosts a podcast called “The Grind” that delivers tips on how to live as a professional poker player among other topics. He shares with us everything from a couple of losses that made him contemplate whether or not he still had what it took to be a professional, how a $4,000 loss made him a better poker player and how he handled a big tournament win. He breaks down how to ride the “ups and downs” and how to use discipline and balance to extend your career.
