Do the schools have changed the social poker game concept ?.

In my opinion the game of poker has always been related to a dark part where mafia organizations based profited traps and chance was something that ruled over the winning players.

Today already some see it as a sport of mental type , where chance even one ingredient in this game is not the most important thing to become a winning player and it's all thanks to poker schools have known to show that this game is not just random , it is necessary to have a much deeper knowledge to become winning players.

I would like to know your views , whether for or against , and even if there are other elements that have led to the perception that currently have about poker

Here in brazil the vision that the population have about poker is dark yet, but much less dark than it was 5 or 10 years ago. Hope this vision gets better with the time.

I do not know about poker schools but our twice weekly poker class has a following at the local breakfast eatery. It started with 3 of us talking about hands we had played during the week and now has a audience with people handing us hand they would like discussed.

There is less of a stigma for the new generations but most people over 40 still see it as shady, ime.

I think the poker will be bad seen for a long time because of the fact you play or bet money, on a very addictive game, for the common person who esrns what he needs to pay his debts and a little to rice his bank account for his future, bet money on a game it could be a waste principally cause he wouldnt afford it, but seeimg on the otherside of the coin, people who actually live by playing poker it would be no different than what a soccer player does formliving... At all, so my point is.. There will be haters... Always and as the common people es the majoritie poker is doomed to be a dark game (also increasing the fact that casinos need to get richer somehow.. ;) )

I think actually poker schools help new players learn things that really were unaware of the online poker and help them not lose much hahaha and as in live poker it takes patience and luck although you can also apply learning in online but do not always come hahaha.
