in my view poker has 90% of our training and discipline another 10% is on our luck on the day.
because if we play only by luck we will win from one to three hands and look at it more if you have patience and constant training you will go far so I think you better get used to it because poker is skill and not a game of luck ....
so let's take our skill and enter the cyclones in the americas cardroom there are some cyclones going 0.10 cents to increase until reaching the 8,000,000 tournament
both combine is best. if you are good skillfully plus lucky in life then it can be easy. but if you are good skillfully and unlucky then it might not work out. its best if you are lucky and suck at it skillfully.
whatever someone says and the skill is very important, the more you are skilful the more often you will reach the final table, but still without a couple of successful flips you will not be able to win the tournament)
Good morning everyone, poker is a game of skill where the luck factor is important.
I believe that the technical and mathematical knowledge of the game represents 80% and luck 20%.
I don't consider myself lucky in poker, I lose a lot of All ins, when I have better hands, I already watch a lot of videos talking about variance in poker, but even today I can't get used to it, of course I have to work on this psychological side of the game , to evolve, I recognize that it is very difficult.
Well said. But still I think luck has a much higher percentage. But this does not negate the fact that you need to learn and gain experience in the game in order to increase the chances of winning in any poker hand. And also you forgot to mention psychology, the knowledge of which also increases the possibility of dominance over the opponent.
Good luck to all.
Just my opinion, but it seems to be around 85-90% luck and maybe 10-15% skill.
HOWEVER, if you include "discipline" I've noticed that NOT playing a LOT of hands against any kind of aggression is a big plus in tournaments. Is "doing nothing" a skill? Problem is sooner or later you get that big monster that you just have to play "big" and then luck kicks in and you're out of the tournament.
