How does social security view someone who invests their money gambling and grinding out an income. Now I don't know if I believe this is even possible, so lets pretend that someone grinds out $20 an hour 20 hours a week...Lets say he makes $1500 a month in average winnings.

Is the grinder considered not disabled because he is actively working to earn this money...That if he has the skills to do pot odds math or read his fellow players well enough to earn an income that he is not disabled?
