Poker is gambling...much like a casino if you have an edge you hope your gambling partner has an unlimited bankroll if he has chosen to give you odds.
If you want to make real money at poker, it is basically a job.....especially these days with competition being what it is....im not sure what youre looking for, but if you buy into the glamour the WPT tries to see....thats LOL on you.
Most folks on the circuit were always staked and broke....and thats why WPT fields are back to pre boom sized today and thats why EPT fields are even shrinking unless they slash buyins.
Ok, for Mercier and those who got sponsored its a pretty fat life, but for everyone else MTTs is hardly a glamorous life.
As you seem to be confused...
A) No, I didnt say it was a bad thing.
B) In your next point...I didnt say it was a sport, however, be it a game or a sport, it is still competative - or at least MTT`s are.
C) I said I can't change my mind set from MTT`s (Survival) to Ring games
D) For the hours I play, I make a nice profit every month AND enjoy the competition of MTT`s
For MTT player see `entrepreneur`
For ring game player, see `statistician`
