Luck is necessary in every tournament, but relying only on good hands and luck, at the final table, but especially when approaching heads-up, I don't think it's enough anymore. Although you can get there for a long time just by relying on good luck, you have to bluff and play smart to win the tournament.

This is a very bad idea. Luck might help you on one or two hands and maybe even get ahead in chips. But you should not rely on luck 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 .;)
Fun, for who is starting in poker, and see someone talking sh*t like this quote, you never gonna see any regular lucrative player saying something like that

I agree with you: it's impossible (almost).

I said "almost" because statistically/mathematically it's possible, but this is clearly hard to happen.

Like: how many times would you need to try to get a lottery prize?

Answer: probably a lot of times, and this doesn't means that you will actually get the prize while you are alive...

It is possible, but profitable? I don't think so.
I understand that it might happen to you occasionally to win solely by luck, but I don't think it's something you can rely on unless you want to have a hard time.
Even if you have a good result once, it's a mistake to assume it will be repeated. I believe it's already difficult enough to win by playing your best.

No ,everybody gets about the same amount of good luck and bad luck. To play good poker will benefit you as a poker player in the long run and dont let good or bad luck get you of your gameplan.

As Chris Ferguson, the 2000 World Poker Champion, said: "One day in poker is 90% luck and 10% skill. One year in poker is 10% luck and 90% skill." This expression has become an aphorism. If you rely only on luck, then such a player will lose in the long run. In poker, as in any other sport, whoever has more skills and who has personal qualities such as patience, willpower and other qualities, that player will have a better chance of winning. In order to achieve success, you need to work on yourself, and luck plays a role of only 10%.

The game of poker is not just luck, it has to have high confidence in the plays and also a bit of trickery, of course, right, so it requires a bit of luck too

It is not only luck in poker, there is also work, study and perseverance of the person, if you want to obtain long-term results that are positive you have to study a lot.

With luck only. hell no in the real world 🌎. You would have to be the luckiest person in the world. Out of one hundred tournaments if you win 50 of them you are a god.

Is not possibly, poker is 70% skill and 30% luck.

Yes it's possible, it's very difficult, but if you play a lot of tables you can do it.
