The New York Times ran a very long personal article about online poker last week. The piece was freelanced by Lucy Ferriss, whose son quit school to play poker full-time.

The story doesn't break any news and it is strictly a personal piece. But it's a good (if long) read on the struggles that many people face when dealing with gambling.
