Who has had problems with their family at home poker?
Hi :)
My family is very understanding about my hobby and I have never had any conflicts over playing poker. But for me, my family always comes first, so I pay attention to my family members first and play only when I have free time.

My Poker sessions On-line or Live games have never interfered with my Family Life, In fact I have Registered for some freerolls and had to walk out and leave before the game started, for some Family Emergency, and come back hours later to Find I had actually made the Money in some just by sitting out.
Rare occurrence but Hey! 10 Cents is 10 Cents :):)

I almost never play live poker, but there have been situations where I wanted to play a tournament but couldn't participate because I had a family commitment.

No, my family doesn't understand that poker is not a game of chance. For my family, poker is the same as a casino. So once I tried to explain that I like to play poker and I am a plus player, but I was not understood. That's why I keep all my poker successes from my family. It was difficult in the past, but after many years I've already gotten used to it. :ninja::censored:

Don't let poker consume you completely. Remember that you must keep in mind not only important information about your opponents at the table, but also know about memorable dates, birthdays, and anniversaries of your loved ones.Don’t take your anger out on your loved ones after a failure. I don’t have any problems in my family, they’re used to it.

If you have a problem with your family because of poker, it's time to teach your family how to play poker and they will begin to understand and support you. My family always supports me in any endeavors or in my hobbies or business relationships I also think so my family to support each other in everything that's why I quietly play poker

Unfortunately with the health problems.
My wife accompanies me and approves of playing, both online and in person

Never had any big problems with my family because of poker. But if you're having problems, maybe it's a good idea to sit with them and explain how much poker is important to you.

I'm over 50, and I'm actually just living my life. My parents died a long time ago. I have a brother and a sister, but they never get involved in my personal affairs. Therefore, I have never had any problems due to playing poker.

Maybe I was lucky, but I've never had any problems in my family because of playing poker. Maybe this is due to the fact that I only play in my free time and never play for the last money.

Allowing anger or frustration from poker setbacks to affect your interactions with family members can strain relationships over time, even if they seem accustomed to it. Communication, empathy, and emotional regulation are key in ensuring that poker remains a fulfilling hobby without overshadowing the importance of family bonds and support. Your family's understanding shouldn't be taken for granted; it's important to nurture those relationships and show appreciation for their understanding and support.

I have no problems with my family because of my poker game. I play when I have free time, and it is my exclusive right how I will use this free time. If someone from my family needs my help, I am always ready to help, family is a bigger priority for me than playing poker.

You have to choose between me and poker, my wife told me.

She is now my ex-wife.

(Just kidding.)

Almost the whole family knows that I play and everyone is fine, especially when they see the results of the time spent. I just need to explain what kind of game poker is, for me it is similar to chess, for many it looks like slots or a casino, but that’s not the case.
