Well I guess this is certainly one way of making a living!
Last summer, Ben Foster quit his $110,000-a-year job as a senior product
manager at eBay to play online poker full-time. In the months leading up to
his decision, the 28-year-old with a degree in statistics had been tracking
his winnings on a detailed spreadsheet. After checking and rechecking the numbers,
he came to the conclusion that he could earn more money playing poker than working
at eBay. Plus, his wife was pregnant with their second child, and he was needed
around the house. Foster decided to become a stay-at-home poker dad.
