Nevada Players Ante Up Online
David Matthews, a webmaster for the Las Vegas Advisor consumer
newsletter, said he makes about $150 per hour for the 20 or so hours per
week he plays online poker.
"I can’t afford not to play," Matthews said. "If I decided to play
full time I could probably make $30,000 a month. "I know people who’ve
given up their day jobs."
Online poker is faster, doesn’t require tipping a dealer and often
features cash bonuses for players, he said. It also draws players who
are "fast and loose," translating into good games at all hours, he said.
"On a Wednesday in the morning you’re not going to find a good game
in Vegas," Matthews said. Players in Las Vegas cardrooms at that time
are "better than average and protective with their money."
A casino manager in Las Vegas, who declined to be named, said he
plays poker only online these days.
"People can see where I’m from online. I always get asked, ‘Why do
you play online when you can play in the casinos?’ " the manager said.
"I laugh and say, ‘Because they look at you funny when you sit down in
your underwear.’ "
