Why would it be hard to tell the truth? If he’s good enough to make regular money from it, then it’s not gambling in my books. He’s just a type of professional sportsman.

I would definitely try to tell them before they hear it second hand- then you can “spin” it however you like (not that I’m saying it’s bad, just that it generally will sound better coming from you).

Can you possibly ask your friends not to mention it? Or if it is brought up, make it sound like a honby. You can say he is still a lawyer (true, even if not practicing),  just that he has been successfull lately with regard to playing poker (also true). Then start talking about insurance law, and evenyone will lose interest pretty quick.
