This is a discussion on Why do you play poker? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; For me its two folds
1) its a challenge to beat the "system"
2) its a bit of fun that brings in some cash...
same reason some people climb Mt Kilamanjaro. Because it's there.

re: Poker & Why do you play poker?
It's fun, challenging, and rewarding. I've always liked games and I love winning, so poker is a hobby that's not only entertaining but also financially productive. What could be better? There's always room to learn, grow, and improve, and no two games are ever exactly alike, so even though it can become boring in long stretches, there's always something new about playing.
