I believe that thinking so superficially about what poker is is a problem that can affect you during your game, it might be cool to start from scratch by studying a little about the basics of poker so that you can reach a more advanced level of understanding about the game. I believe that the game is more about people than the cards themselves, relying only on the cards is what separates a common player from a professional and profitable player in the long run.

I think poker is the most beautiful card game in the world, it can be used to get a lot of experience. I'm really glad I learned how to play this game. But we must not overdo it and pay attention to ourselves and our money.
Poker is a simple card game that involves betting, bluffing and the probability of winning.
I would not say that poker is a simple game. Poker includes a lot more than you listed. Poker is a discipline, poker is patience, poker is endurance, poker is practice, poker is a tactic and a strategy ..... and much more. So it is obvious that poker is not an easy game.
Poker is not just a game. Poker is a real art. The game itself contains not only 10 combinations and 4 streets (preflop, flop, turn and river), but also various strategies of the game. And the strategy of each player is unique. You won't find two players playing exactly the same in different situations.
poker is the best card game in the world. of course the original goal of the game is to form the strongest combination but what differentiates this game from other card games. it is the fact that the observation of the adversary is essential. a tournament is an uninterrupted series of moves. These moves are deemed to be procedurally independent. But from a strategic point of view, each move brings information to the players who know how to analyze it. which refines their way of playing the following moves.
Well it is a great game that mixes skill with chance, but you should know that it has many edges and you have to study hard to achieve a greater understanding, as they say in a comment out there, it is not a matter of taking it so lightly.
Poker is more than just a card game : you can observe human behaviour and psychology at its best. no other game provides you with so many skills for example body reads, Acting weak when you have a monster,etc...
