Poker is a game that makes you think more of a hobby than dependence

For me it is more pastime, rather than a hobby. Although as entertainment is little to say. It is also a way to earn something.

Look, it's difficult for someone to assume dependency.

They will usually talk whenever they are in control of the situation.

I confess that not knowing how to stop at some moments made me lose a lot.

Breaking even after 100k hands in cash game can be considered outstanding enough.Until you got lucky and score major mtts win,poker should be consider as an hobby.

IMHO..

For somebody who has other Hobbies and he's not fixated on the poker is a hobby. For those who are fixated on poker and this maybe affects other family members and it is the dependent person who needs help.

For me, poker is a hobby, but sometimes I am so fond of, that's more like a relationship)

What is poker for you? Dependency or hobby?

For me it started only as a hobby, but I believe that today I have poker as something of daily life and that brings me joy, practically a dependency.

So that's it, GL and we meet at the tables !!!

The difference between hobby and dependence sometimes is invisible

I play poker as a hobby. I don’t care too much if I win or lose ; I prefer winning to losing, but it’s not the end of the world if I lose few dollars in a week.

I try to take it as a hobby, if it becomes a dependency or addiction I think I would not enjoy it I would suffer it and would not want to get there

Poker is definitely a hobby for me but if it starts paying out large than I might take a break from working and take a few trips and enjoy myself for awhile.

For me it's a hobby for now. I'm trying to make it work. As for dependence I do not think so, because I can not play poker for long without any kind of reaction or abstinence.

I wanted it to become a hobby but it gets boring live. You become too sedative sitting there for hours. So, now I play for fun.

Once it became so boring that the thought of playing poker at the casino made me puke. Believe me.

After that, took a 3 month break and only play once in a week/couple of weeks.

It's more like a hobby, I like to come home and play a few games before studying
