Much has been said of poker as, gambling, skill, mental sport, but little is known about poker can also be a therapy. Because the game he use a lot of concentration of the player, and in this excess of concentration, ends up the participant forgetting certain problems of his own daily life.
At the moment of the game, many things happen, to the variances, the bad beat, and this turned the player to have a mind turned to the game and forget about their addictions to drugs, cigarettes and bugs. It would be much better for the individual to spend his or her money thrown up than to spend on some addictive drug. Around poker games there are several myths that the game addicts, will make you poor, there is nothing proven, what has behind the long hours of the game is self-improvement, the desire to achieve goals and sadness of failure.
The scenario of the game simulates the daily life of real life, in various situations of conflict we have to choose a path, which will be the decision that will shape the future itself. When we are in a critical situation of the game, we have to have the conviction to give up or bet, the fold itself is more difficult decision made by the player, because everything is acquered so as not to lose even more, we give the bet when there is a draw flush, sequence and even fullhouse, and the opponent makes several re-raise, and then the professional clearly perceives a bet better than his own. In real life we do not know that someone who has attacked us may be carrying a weapon or can carry, just as we do not know that another opponent player carries an AAs or is a bluff, in those moments we have in mind the experiences provided by poker, where in the tournaments It's better to get out alive than it is.

To win big money in poker, it is not legal to want to live poker, should not leave jobs and studies for poker, what should be done is to keep working and continue studies to improve in life and grow in poker. It is clear that by earning good money in poker the player must obtain a venture to invest part of the profits in the game that helped him and to make the poker a second income.
