This is a discussion on Do you see poker as Hobby or job? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Hey guys id like to know your opinions on this. Do you guys see poker as a hobby or a job and why?
I consider poker to be a hobit. because I always take pleasure in playing this game for hours on end. I will be lucky enough to make a big win. I could perhaps consider making a profession of it. even if it is not really an imperative or an object that I must achieve at all costs.
It always starts as a hobby but over time you get to know more about the game and you like it more and when you understand it and you see that you have advantages to earn extra money you will take it more seriously and start studying more about poker, when you are in that Stage without realizing it can become like a job or an office for extra money doing what you like, later you will see if you leave it like that or continue to improve your game to become a professional and live 100% of poker or do it as a style of life.
I have a real job ,so poker is a way to supplement my income . If I stick to freeroll tournaments and low level cash and tournaments games,I will be way ahead. but unfortunately ,I bite more than I can chew
I consider Poker a hobby since i love maths and chance. It helps to open my mind sometimes. I really enjoy playing it, and not actually seeing it as a source of income. Like any other enjoyable thing to spend money on, this is the same thing, but in this case you can also make it profitable. It really depends on what do you want/expect from it.
I lost my job recently because of the pandemic. Right now I view poker seriously even I'm playing micro stakes. I try so hard for the past few months to improve my game and Cardschat helped me a lot especially when I saw their "How to become a winning poker player in 30 days".
Poker is a hobby to me at the moment. I play it when I feel like it, which for the most part is most days. I really enjoy poker but still have much to learn before I could ever consider it to be a job that I am consistently earning enough to live on. Perhaps one day .

It's not a hobby because I don't play just for fun. I'm playing everyday, always trying to learn more and trying to win.
It's also not a job because I don't make enough money to even feed my dog...
So, atm poker is game I do enjoy and I'm trying to beat by becoming lucrative.
I guess this it.
I see poker in many ways, it helped me to value patience and try to get it, I relate poker to an intriguing puzzle, to the national and international financial market, both require an opportunistic view to make a profit, poker is something I enjoy with the possibility of making a profit and training my mind

I consider playing poker as a hobby, since I have a family, and it is important for me to know that my financial stability is due to my work as an engineer. Taking the game of poker as a job, it is first of all constant risks and instability, plus a lot of time to tart. And life does not stand still.
