We can draw inspirations and life lessons from all of our acts, including when we play a game of poker.
For those who know the game, to participate in a table means to face solitary moments between reason and emotion: luck, courage, intelligence, patience, adrenaline, bluffs, dropouts, among others are part of irreversible decision making of that moment.
In addition to all the necessary knowledge about the rules and mathematics of the game, it takes physical and psychological endurance to withstand many hours of concentration on tournament matches and events.
It seems exaggerated, but it is not. That's why poker can compare with the pressures we experience on a day-to-day basis and the lessons they leave us.
Knowing how to handle these situations in the game is a great exercise to be a winner in the adversities of life.
Poker brings with it a series of implicit comparisons that can be used in everyday life, at work, in relationships, and in general, as rules of coexistence.
I do not know how others do, but poker is an easy hobby in my free time and if I have a good card, then I get extra profit, I spend more time for family and work, and when I have free couple hours then I can play !!

Poker is my favorite hobby. Thanks to this game I became more patient. In addition, sometimes I get a little profit from the game, which is always nice.

re: Poker & The "Life" and the "Poker"
Poker requires patience, discipline, constant hard work and good bankroll management for success. These are very important in life also so i find poker helpful also in my other activities.

Poker is a great teacher for those who are studying. On the felt and off the felt. Perhaps the hardest thing for a person to do is to objectively critique their own actions. Humans always think they are doing everything right no matter what. Self confidence is never a bad trait but it may cause ignorance. A man named Carl Jung was said, "Who looks outside dreams. Who looks inside awakens."
