Online Poker - A Money Machine for Fencing Ace

Britain's Olympic fencing team member admits that he loves playing poker

In an interview given to BBC this week, Jamie Kenber, a 25-year-old member of Britain's Olympic fencing team, decided to reveal a bit more about himself, so he told the interviewer that he enjoys a good game of online poker, and that he adds to his income by coaching math and taking part in Internet poker cash games.

According to him, "If I can't get enough students then I might play a little bit of cards. I've had some wins, but it's not a reliable source of income unless you have a lot of time to commit.

"I'm a decent hobbyist, but I've made a little bit of money from it.'

In terms of similarities between the two, Kenber said: "There are comparisons. In fencing someone might show you something and you don't know whether they're actually going to go through with it or if it's just an early bluff. That happens in poker as well.

"And if you think people are doing things for the wrong reasons you can end up losing. It's no coincidence that I enjoy both of them."

As for his primary passion, fencing, he commented: "I think people will be impressed with what they see from the sport. It's fun to watch. It takes a fair bit of commitment to learn the rules and tactics, but it's well worth it."
