This is a discussion on What is poker for you? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I am considering what the only one thing that poker would be or what it could be most, so I didn't include "game" and "hobbie"
I am considering what the only one thing that poker would be or what it could be most, so I didn't include "game" and "hobbie" because in my opinion, poker is both ever. So in your opinion, what kind of activity is poker : a gambling, a sport, a job or an investiment?
It,s hard to answer that question, but i want to say, that i don,t believe, that Poker is a sport. This thought just can,t go to my mind at all.
If we are talking about online poker , for sure it,s a little bit like a gambling. Sure, some people can play it prefessionally for many hours in a row and this is a job for them and they can live for this money, but i think most of the players just play it to take some fun and to earn some extra money if they can. Not sure what means Investment, maybe some people can invest in poker. I also sure, that lots of people already very disappointed about online poker and they don,t trust to online poker sites.
In fact, poker is the only game in the casino where your decisions have a direct influence between win or lose. It the game you don't play against the house. You play poker against other players: people. We only use cards and chips to keep track of what's going on.

Maybe it is wired, but I like to practice my patience and calmness. I like to watch my ego that wish to revenge, watch when I am vex, inpatient. Poker helps do discover my inner feelings and control them.
