playing poker does not just require skills but a huge responsibility. you should always be aware you are walking on the edge you are playing with fire it is money involved, you should take full control over your bankroll and play at the table that the stake is right for you.
poker is for players with patience and goals in the long run not just players who want to be rich over a night. play responsible for your life saving and money
if you can't handle that if you are not unable to manage that trust me sooner or later you will go broke
Yes, need to have a pretty decent experience so as not to lose everything, and have the necessary qualities to lead sports discipline, not to get hot, not to rush and play all the time according to the bankroll. All this is quite possible to comprehend, but at the same time you should never relax until you withdraw the earned money from the game
The most important thing in poker is DISCIPLINE the management of your bankroll, to avoid all that we must learn to control the tilt and the anxieties of wanting to obtain very fast results, the anxiety of wanting to win all the hands and all the pots we must learn to know how to fold which is the true essence of poker reading, learning all this requires a lot of study and practice. Personally, I am trying to control the anxiety in the game, I usually make mistakes of making very fast decisions sometimes.
This is a very important point and I think it is difficult to achieve for many players at the beginning.
It covers many things, setting priorities, in what times and for how much time will dedicate to poker and other things. Of course, bankroll management is important to know the limits in which you can play.
I agree with you. I also believe that poker is promising only for patient and pragmatic players who are willing to work for many years to achieve their goals. And although sometimes I also lack patience, but every time, I still become more patient and disciplined.
re: Poker & Poker and responsibility over your life
Poker is one of those games that you have to be comfortable with losing. I get that no one likes to lose and that we should all play with the mindset to win, but when losses happen, you have to be willing to accept that.
I find most players lose the most money while trying to chase a loss to get even. You make poor decisions hoping for a quick score and break your bank roll rules. These are the times it is the hardest but most important to stay disciplined.
The bankroll is very important, I did not know that 2 3 years ago and after arriving from work I remember that I played poker for money, playing super expensive tables, I lost a lot of money in a month almost the entire month that I had been working, you have to be careful with what they have just started, now if after studying I have a little left to get out of the deficit and be positive.

re: Poker & Poker and responsibility over your life
Yes, that's for sure, the most important thing in poker is patience, I had such a streak a few days ago, I didn't have enough patience and started playing garbage cards aggressively, the result didn't take long to wait, a bad result, I lost 140$ and didn't have time to blink, it was almost all the money in the pokerroom cash register, 10$ left ((, well, I'll start over, I have a lot of patience
That is correct. Before you get involve in this world of card games. Ask yourself first if you posses these 3 important things.
1) Time - you need a decent time to play not just because the wife is away or parents are away. No no no, you need decent time free.
2) Extra Money - do you have EXTRA money?
Extra because this is the money after you paid your hydro( electric ) water, internet, phone bills, your life insurance, your retirement plan premium and also done a bit security savings( for incase of emergency) or unexpected expenses.
3) Discernment - playing poker is not just you know the game. You need to have a great perception and judge well. Great and quick calculation knowledge because you have to calculate your odds of winning and the risk or number of cards that has the capability to knock your hand down. Discernment, you also needs to easily understand your opponents moves so you will avoid something and you also know when to strike. Like in boxing you have to know your opponent very well to secure victory.
IF YOU DONE ALL THAT CHECKLIST THEN YOU ARE FREE TO GO
Completely agree with the vast majority of comments! And the best of all is to be able to read them and remember many of the recommendations that they contributed here !! ... because many times we believe we have a responsible game and we have forgotten the forecasts we took when we were newbies!.

My biggest problem is also anxiety, wanting to solve everything at once, I think the best characteristic for a poker player is patience.
