Matt's Dream Job: Professional Poker Player!

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - I have been playing the game of poker for about 5 years. It is a game of skill, disguise, and a bit of luck. I'm certainly no professional, but even someone like me can win a tournament every once in awhile- that's what makes it great! What's fascinating is the variety of people you meet while sitting at a poker table.

Northern Quest Resort & Casino was kind enough to invite me into their poker room and play a few hands while chatting with the Manager Chris Pendell. He brought up some interesting points about the game that I have never thought of including how it can be used as a networking tool for other jobs.

If you decide to play, do so responsibly and stick to your budget. Check out the videos and may all your hands come up aces!

    SPOKANE, Wash. - A few months ago, Spokane's favorite zombie show, Z Nation, asked if they could film an episode for the upcoming season in our studios.  Uh... DUH!
