As is well known poker takes a lot of free time. And what else would you sacrifice for your favorite games?

There are no sacrifices. Its just fun and pleasure. You are asking me whether you sacrifice money to entertain yourself. Not really but its for fun.

People who sacrifice life, gf, wife, their bank accounts are degens.

its not a sacrifice... its a choise.... i could have chosen to watch tv etc. but I chose poker, but not all the time. And it depends on how much time I´ve got, how much i play. For example im doin laundry right now and have played some poker and watched arrow today on my day of.

if you like playing poker then its not a waste of time or anything like that, its just quality time.
e.g full time working is a waste of your life (unless you love your job)

Sometimes catching up with friends I suppose ! would rather sit at home and load up a few tourneys, than go to the pub for a few beers and a catch up

I don't have to give up anything to play poker. I have my set times to play, and besides I live alone, I'm disabled, so I have plenty of time to play, but that don't make me play 12 hours a day. Poker will always be here.

I try to play poker at times that do not interfere with my real life.
But if the tournament is good, I can make a place in my schedules

Sometimes I sacrifice too much for poker (time, money, friends, college...) but that is something I'm trying to fix.

"man you earn much respect gg" nutthink what do you mean with that?

Anyway, I might be able to add a little more here. But this is the other way around. Kay is now an ex-friend because she takes when she has nothing, but when she does have something she never seems concerned with who helped her. Well this same woman used to come up here and if I was playing poker, I would put it on post and fold so I could listen to whatever was on her mind. And then we would get started playing rummy, and I would never get back to my game. But her friendship meant more to me than a poker game. But that friendship is over, just because I finally realized she would be nice to my face, but she sits in her apt. and talks about me like a dog, and she never has shown me that our friendship meant anything to her. So that's my sacrifice the other way around.

I do not have to sacrifice than ever. Poker for me, and entertainment and hobbies.

I probably go the pub slightly less (a good thing) and those times I do go I enjoy it slightly more (another good thing).
I guess it's not sacrifice if its a win\win ... but it seems like a sacrifice when i'm deliberating 'to pub or not to pub'

Poker is the best game. For the sake of poker I sacrifice my time and I hope that I will learn to play well in this game and my time will pay off! Thank you for the opportunity to play for me!

Poker is very many-sided business. You can both earn the money playing poker, as well as spend your time with poker for the pleasure. But what is the sacrifice? You can sacrifice your money, when you are not enough qualified in the game, and so I advice you learn and learn poker and at that time this game will be for you just pleasure!:)

Damn nutthink you got me rolling on the floor and doing this post with my toes. No I wasn't thinking what you said was a bad thing, and you are right, I do love to play poker, but to much playing poker isn't good for anyone. LOLOLOLOL Well I'm not alone about Kay. I can't stop laughing. Yeah it was getting time to tell her to go F herself. Hell no I would not fold that hand. I just can't stop laughing. The reason I would do that, is because I don't have many friends, and I'm not wanting to lose any, but it's a relief now that I have put that half assed friendship behind me. And in doing so I killed two birds with one stone. So both of them knows not to even knock on my door unless they want to hear some of these cuss words I invented. LOLOLOL One thing is for sure. I will have a lot more than when those Bit Dogs was over here bumming all they could get. Thanks for the laughs. That is good for a person.

Like anything in life you have to try and find a healthy Balance between poker and spending time with family/love ones
