    Get your degree no matter how much money you are making right now playing poker.

    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand. Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
    In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti."

    Honestly if your playing poker and making cash + going to school you lost your mind wanting to quit... Keep making cash and getting better while still getting your degree and your livin good. Once you graduate play some full time poker. Im definately not good enough to go play full time but i would definately keep my job unless it I was making it big time.

    Always go for the degree first so you will have plan "B". In the meantime,hone your skills even more,and when the time is right,I will see you at the w.s.o.p. in Las Vegas. Best of luck to you.

    I weigh all the positives and negatives. Just so tough to sit and school when I know I can make money doing this. I guess i'll just do it part time for awhile and earn my degree and see how things go.
