Then guys of some time now I've been noticing that already learned a lot more to poker than just the essence of the game itself. I learned things that I brought to my personal life, like how to be more patiente with other peoples, how to have more emotional control in certain situations and other philosophies lives, given that every day we encounter people from different cultures . And i learned other didatic things. I just posted it because I think that poker its a big unverse and is more than only cards that you are in table and I think that like me other peoples learned a lot of thing.

GL to all in the game and in life! :)

One thing I learned is that there's no sure things, you should always try to put yourself in great positions, but you'll get burned sometimes.

Alot about life

Playing poker has taught me a lot of cool things about life. Remember in Lucky you, the dad said you play poker the way you live your life, and live your life the way you play poker. That saying applies to my life almost all the way. The cool thing is I've learned how to read people very well when it comes to face to face confrontations/.

I shouldn't trust other people, I shouldn't trust my gut even if it says I shouldn't trust it and I have to be more aggressive, patient and so on...

I like your initial post wc2hell - I hadn't really thought about poker that way before. But, you're so right! It's amazing how a simple game can bring people together from all walks of life, races, cultures and religions. And, it's not just the game, but the platform, the software that enables us. I can and do chat real-time with people from just about every country in the world. That's really quite amazing! The game gives us a topic, a common interest, a theme - the software gives us the ability.

Thanks Matt. It was exactly what I was thinking when I wrote, and I knew that many people identify .

No matter how well you play a hand you may not get the results you wanted.

I learned it can be pretty addicting, and things could go well for you or awful real fast.
