This is a discussion on Poker in times of Covid within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I have seen that with the pandemic many of us have to live locked up in our homes, and many of us have been left
I have seen that with the pandemic many of us have to live locked up in our homes, and many of us have been left without a job, my question is.
Do you see poker as an alternative to generate profits in times of the pandemic?
Of course. It IS alternative, but only if you are skilled enough to make money at poker. Otherwise you are just one of those poor players who gambles with the last money he has left during covid, and loses. I'm sorry for them.
I guess that, if you already have an good result on the poker, one positive ROI, so irs okay to play more poker and get better things from it.
But if you dont have yet, dont waste your time and money in poker, or take your time to learn how to get profit on poker if you reallh like it.
You ahve to be carefull. One thing is playing freerolls and low stakes tourneys to pass the time and trying to make a living at poker, especially online, is a whole different matter.
Unless you are a good player , instead of earning a living you may end up loosing any nest eggs you have left. I know a fairly good live tournament player who has lost over 20k online over the last month or so. Not even in high stakes. The main problem is staying glued to the screen regardless of your results.
This question has been repeatedly answered. In poker, only a well-playing person makes a profit, at least in average limits. This player has traveled a long distance, knows the theory well, understands hands well, finds errors in his own and someone else's game and uses everything correctly.
A pandemic has nothing to do with all of this. But this can affect the profit of a good player, due to the increase in inexperienced players.
But by no means do I underestimate the factor of luck in individual raffles and tournaments.
A lot of people like myself started playing poker during he pandemic. I think it could be a good way to make money for people who already are veterans at the game. I doubt newcomers will be making good profit.
To become a pro poker you have to spend a lot of time studying and practice. And just a few percent of players can make good profit with poker for living life so if you just begin to play, poker is surely not an alternative to make a profit in times of the pandemic.
I’m afraid that poker wouldn’t turn out to be a big loss, because I rely on luck, you can win a little, but skill is needed for the distance, and it comes only with a loss of money or a big amount of knowledge that will not come in a short period of time.
Poker cannot be counted as income during a pandemic. The bulk of the players will not have income from poker. He will even be for them unprofitable. Only very good players will have income. The rest will give these good players their money.
Yes and no. I really like to play poker, it doesn't matter if I win or lose. This virus just helped me realize how much I really love this game. A lot of people have lost their jobs, stay at home and do nothing. If you ask me, this is good fun and you can make some money.
