Chris, how does your family react to you being a full time internet player?  Did they accept it and support you when you first started, or did they tell you 'to get a proper job'?

Do you share all your wins with them, and do you think they'll always have doubts that you'll blow the lot, 'gambling' as none poker players call it?

I was very scared to tell them to begin with but when I did my dad was actually really alright about it. He's taken up the game himself and is probably even more enthusiastic about it than me. He practically thinks he's my manager. He plays on Blonde and Party as Moorman12 if you ever see him. He rails most of my final tables and even calls me sometimes after to say what did you have on that hand....  I knew you were bluffing etc. My mum has just about accepted it now.... She used to send me cutouts from the paper about other jobs I could go and get every week; at least she's stopped doing that now. She can see I'm doing well and although she doesn't know much about it all she is proud of me being successful I think. The rest of my family think my luck will run out soon lol
