In my opinion, this is a strange question, it has no reason to discuss. And yet - I think poker, even online, will be permanent and forever. He can be hated, he can be loved, he can be ignored, but he will exist.
Cash games will never die in my opinion and the only thing is very very difficult to maintain as a grind is live tournaments in my opinion.
But you know for a good poker grind you just need a deck of cards, a table and a fish!
I believe so, every day the poker community grows and new players, new schools, new tools appear ... so I always see poker in extreme evolution, I don't see this game ending, but growing more and more each day that goes by
Poker will still be played but I doubt it will be the same old game. It'll either be a modified version of Texas hold em are a entirely different poker game altogether. It wasn't all that long ago that five card draw was the most popular game now it's played nowhere other then at the occasional home game. Stud poker too has all but gone extinct as well
One of the biggest issue facing the world’s online poker industry is the lack of U.S. players involved in international networks. About 20% of the players at PokerStars before Black Friday were American. Half of Full Tilt’s players were from the US, while about 80% of those at Cereus were.
American online poker players are known as loose and full of action. The lack of these players at European sites, not only hurts traffic, but the amount of money Americans bring to those tables.
i honestly feel along time. obv the games will have it ups and downs. also important to note there will always be diff forms. few years ago it was omaha now we are seeing the highest stakes in the world outta Macau go with the short deck form. where theres gamble, there will be a game
I don't think online poker will be around forever. Or at least not for humans. AI and quantum computing will put an end to humans having a chance at beating bots, and then I think that will be the end of the online game. But who knows if that will happen before our kids get a chance to play
do you think our children will still be able to play online poker?
I think so. Online poker will last as long as the humankind last. There're lots of opinions on the internet stating online poker is dying but as long as people play it the game will exist. I'm sure our children will play poker maybe it won't be Texas Holdem, OK, another variation of the game, but they will anyway.
Do sharks complain about bad beats? No way. They stay aggressive, bite the fish, act scary, and remind everyone they are a shark!
The whole life, because it´s a type of the game that is really easy and confortable to paly in those days. You only need a notebook and somewhere with internet that you can play. So in my opnion, the online poker it will last for a long time
