I'm loving tls more every day. So from all these replies it is definitely negative ev to include it as part of your application. Thanks everyone for the replies. And the amount of people with poker knowledge in the tls forums is comforting

Well if you have ever been involved in staking (which I'm sure you probably have at some point), I might actually consider this on a resume. Online poker staking can easily be passed off as online investing where, rather than being the "slacker loser," you are just a clever investor.

But also keep in mind that some employers will probably see any person who made money off of a "risky" investment as a gambler loser.
