This is a discussion on Poker is fun within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Yes poker is fun. You play the odds. But often odds don’t win. Poker gods prevail… Have to keep in playing & maybe one day
I agree the big win is what I dream about, but the steady cash-outs are what keep me at the tables right now. Don't get me wrong I am not the best at bankroll management, but I am steady making cashes at the tourneys I play. Many times I just win my buy-in back plus a few dollars, but the amount of time learning the game is very rewarding. I figure just making it that far every time increases my chances of a bigger payday every time. Sometimes it does come down to a all-in call where you are way ahead in the hand only to get knocked out with a runner runner. That is poker I guess, but playing the odds consistently should level out the wins/losses over the longer course of one's career. Bottom line we all play to win, but all can't be winners.
It is fun and exciting, I also consider it a roulette of emotions especially if you play at several tables at the same time, with dedication and effort of course that a great victory will come to everyone
Personally, I am more interested in a stable, even not very significant income from the game. But stability is more important to me. For example, for a start, I would have enough income of $ 200 a week.
They wrote everything correctly, I will only add on my own that a big victory is different for everyone, someone needs to win a lot of money, but for me these are trophies and cups, I get maximum pleasure from them!

Poker is more fun when we win, but I feel good playing at the poker table. I like very much. It is also good to share with other players from different countries. Wins come more in the long run when we study the game more and the more we play, the more we improve our game over time.
It is fun if you avoid the bad beats but jokes aside I think there is no reason to play this game if it's for the money only. I like the thrill the emotions, yeah sometimes it's sucks but overall I get the fun out of it.
Good morning everyone, in my opinion cash games are fun and Mtts are games for making money, but of course cash games are also for making money.
I play Mtts and when I'm in a row with 50 players left I start to get tense and when I take a bad one, it's very frustrating and when these bads are followed it gets even worse, whoever plays Mtts knows these situations will happen frequently but I can't get used to it and when I have a really bad day at the Mtts, I will play cash game to relax and for me cash is a fun game.
I could dedicate myself only to cash game games, but Mtts are more profitable, I play micro and my best day in cash game I think I won something close to $30 and playing Mtts my best result was just $800, which I won when I played a $50 Mtt after I won a ticket on Twitch.
Poker is really REALLY fun! I especially have the most fun when I feel like I am playing well and doing well during a session. Gotta study harder, play well, and catch that big win! It will come in time. I have got to be patient, on and off of the tables!
Hi! You treat poker like a lottery. I think this is not quite true. If you play correctly, then little by little you will be in the black, winning more often than losing. The main thing is not the expectation of a big win, but the right game at a distance. Good luck to you!
