This is a discussion on luck or knowledge that you prefer in poker? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I prefer both since you can be the most professional but if you lack that point of luck you will not reach the end ...
It is obvious that you will always prefer to have both points equally in professional tournaments. The most important point is always the strategy, obviously sometimes luck helps but in itself it is not the most important point.
I prefer luck, because you can have the best knowledge and strategy but with bad luck you will not get far, assuming that you can only choose one and you would have it 100%, in real life luck is very important but it passes to second term since knowledge is the main thing to be a winner in poker
I think the luck is more important especially when you play online, because nobody can see your strategy . It is all about luck . For example - I had 66 and was all in , the gay who paid was with 1010. Flop - 6KA, turn 2 and river 10 - he had 0.01 chance to win and won.
