Did you worry about the the legal aspect of starting a business (forming an LLC or whatever, finding a lawyer, etc.) before launching your apps? Or was that something you worried about after seeing success?

Thanks for doing this AMA! You're one of my favorite personalities in poker, and your commentary on hands for WSOP was especially enjoyable.

My question is two-part and somewhat related:

1) What percentage of pro/semi-pro poker players do you think are actually making (decent) money on poker alone (i.e., not through endorsements or other sources)? It seems like poker is at best a zero-sum game but with rakes and fees, it's not even that.

2) Dan Colman got a lot of negative attention for his criticism of the game. What are your thoughts for mere mortals? Is poker better thought of as a hobby, or is it realistic to make a decent living off it?
