I never liked this word "grinding" since I play poker for both fun and money. I like playing poker. I played it when I was a child for victory, now I play it as an adult for victory and money.
I think "grinders" are ppl who play this game only for money and doesnt care about the fun part of the game. They consider poker as a job. They are more like mathematic machines. Multitabling on monitors and playing their strategy, trying to get the best mathematical chance to win a pot. No problem with that anyway.
