I play for fun and sometimes I get a good prize and use it for other things. I don't just stick to what I win with poker but when I win it helps.

I think you meant to say that poker is fun , but that you should not play what you cant afford. If you are a good poker player there is no reason not to have poker as your primary income.

taking gambling as a source of income is a serious mistake. We all know that there will be more losses than gains, I am not saying that there are no good stages, but I do say that most of the time we will lose.





tell that to these guys.... (fwiw, this is just a small sample taken from players who were all playing in the same WCOOP mtt this past week).

Looks like the gains are outweighing the losses. They're all over $1 Million usd in profit just on ONE poker site.

More money invested into getting better over just playing is key. There are tons of people making a living from playing poker and there are tons of people making a ton of money doing way more obscure stuff than cards.

You are absolutely correct. Nobody could say it better.

One thing you should know. Poker is a fun game but it should never be a source of income. So don't think you are smart and save your money before you regret it.
Yes, what you said is true, but there is something you need to know learn and apply my friend It is the “rules of Bankroll" ;). You can play with money if you strictly respect and apply the rules of Bankroll, in this case you can play comfortably and without any fear.

Bank roll management is the key when it comes to playing Poker. Poker is a game of chance. There are many things you have to know about poker before you can win profitably.

Yes everything is correct, except the bankroll, you need to constantly learn the game!:deal:

Fun and Profit

Honestly its an obsession I love poker and can see myself improving all the time but as far as bankrolling I'm trying to stay within the limits of my last win so far I'm above water but I'm a realist I know how quickly the cards can turn on you

I tend to agree with you to a degree. I've subsidized my income for a good many years with poker but have never totally relied on it. It has at times increased my standard of living.

Hello brother
Look depending on how you feel, you may or may not be right.
For example, ever since slot machines appeared, I've liked to play them all my life and you could say that I've even been lucky in them.
But when online poker first appeared, I would tell you that it caught me so much that I hardly play slots.
All my life I played poker with family and friends.
Even though I don't live on this, it really helps me with some expenses.
The big dream is to live on this, which I consider a privilege for some and in good time so be it.
Cheers;););)

Yes, poker for most players is not a source of income, but just a part-time job for small expenses.

unfortunately, poker rooms are supported by those who are trying to turn poker into a source of income, people have been playing for years, investing money, but nothing comes out, and since not a little has been invested in this enterprise, it is very difficult to stop it, for many "the train is going downhill without brakes" and people are not able to accept an adequate solution and give up online poker

It's the right thing to do with your bankroll. Otherwise, you have to play for play money.

Poker can be a source of additional income. I totally agree with you in general. Counting on profit from the game is not very smart and pragmatic, you should always have an alternative source of income, because luck decides a lot in poker.

it is good and wise advice, there are cases but very very few in which poker is the main source of income, but it is a big mistake if one intends or seeks that, if you are really good the time will come but you do not want to create a path based on that
