I tried that when I was young. It was very ugly. lol. It was so bad that I dropped my gloves, did 100 pushups and then decided to train as a poker player. I haven't played for money since.(Sort of like that. I like occasional tournament.) Now that I am trained and know that I will make it, I am ready for a season of poker. I just need funding now.

Of course it is possible. It's like a lottery. People can have no experience, buy a lottery ticket and win a million. In poker, a lot depends on luck, but in my opinion, skill and experience are a more reliable basis for success.

Luck plays a big role in poker. If luck accompanies you, then this inspires the player, gives confidence, which often affects the final result. It is with the elements of luck that you are able to win prizes in poker.

For me, this method is possible,
but it is not always reliable,
I use it when I am tired and I cannot use plans and strategies .;)
I think it's the element of luck that attracts new players to poker.

yes, but in the long run, luck will still turn away, and the skills will remain. Therefore, skills are more important than success.

If you think in the short term I think it is possible. One day you can enter and get lucky and win. But in the long term I don't think so. In the long term luck does not help.

You have to define what's "win". If you say you can have a good day, yes it can be, but in the long term you'll end up loosing more than what you win.

Perhaps it will not work to win a poker tournament relying only on luck, you also need other skills and abilities, but luck will help you achieve your goal very much.

You could eventually win at poker just by luck.... and I mean the chance of ever winning a tournament or making a profit at the end of a week after playing the cash games just by sheer luck... said By the way, for me, luck does not exist in poker... I prefer to say that the variance was in your favor... anyway... for those who use the word luck... I will tell you that if you base your game only in "luck" they will never reach the consistency of profitability over time...
Relying solely on luck in poker is not a sustainable strategy for long-term success. While luck can certainly play a role in short-term outcomes, the essence of poker lies in skillful decision-making, strategic thinking, and understanding probabilities.

Those who attribute their wins solely to luck may not fully grasp the intricacies of the game or the importance of consistently making sound decisions. Over time, players who rely on luck alone are unlikely to achieve consistent profitability.

Some say that everyone makes their own luck, but I say that you have to be born with luck, of course the poker game also requires some experience, study and last but not least inspiration, luck in my opinion is about 30 to hundred, the rest contributing the others.

Hello. No, no, and no again!! I live in a dormitory, and one of my roommates has also become addicted to playing poker. He comments on his game so passionately, talks to opponents on the other side of the monitor screen, that neighbors, knowing my fondness for the game, complain that either I started streaming, or I brought a streamer to my room. And he plays and doesn't want to learn, but when luck is on his side - he loudly announces that he's crushing the limits in one go!! So relying on luck in the long run is not the right way, you need to develop skills and analyze the game. Fortune smiles at you at some point - it could be a successful bluff, or a runner-runner!!! Shamans definitely won't help you.

When it comes to playing poker, it can sometimes be difficult to determine where luck ends and skill begins. Some players may be more skilled than others, but it seems like the lucky ones always win. Some are familiar with the famous phrase of poker players: “I’d rather be lucky than play well.”

Of course not. Poker is a mixed with skills, luck and experience. You have to have all of those.

Really, if you want to win constantly and have a good level in the format you play, it should not always depend on luck since being able to win an important tournament is more strategy than luck without neglecting this since sometimes it is always a good help

Poker is not a game of one strategy. Therefore, some players start playing push or fold in the late stages of the game. This is the strategy where you can either get the blinds or double up. It is more about luck than skills. :unsure:

Luck may help you win a hand. It may help you win today and tomorrow and the next day but long term you win not be a winning poker player just on luck.

in my opinion, Luck can lead you through the blinds in the beggining of the tournament, but not from mid to endgame

You can win on luck only in the short term but long term you need some poker skills to continue to make money

I believe not because poker is a game of technique, experience and often you can't count on luck, you need to count on yourself to analyze the moves and the players to make your best move.
