What are you playing poker for? Does poker bring you satisfaction or vice versa has broken your dreams?
I have played poker for many years ... I love the game and most of it's varieties ... I like the rush when you win an all -in I like most everything about the game ... and it has brought me much enjoyment over the years, as well as passed many a bored hour ... and to be honest ... there are a ton of ways I could waste money and time that would be much worse and I don't really waste it playing poker because there is a return for me, even if it isn't the same as a serious pro ....

I like to play poker. I learned about this game in 2014 and immediately wound up, is not understood until the end, even the combination of cards, I began to pour money Rummu. I lost all momentum. I play mainly in winter. Gradually I am learning, true learning laziness, to play more than study. My dream is to make a game of poker. Not yet obtained.
Hey man I love the range of competition. Never the same game twice. It's fun as hell It's a social thing. There's opportunity for great successes. You take risks. Challenge yourself. Stive to be the best you can be everytime. Learn something everytime. When you make the right calls and confirm your predictions it builds great confidence. Crackin skulls and taking doe but at the same time you build reputations and use knowledge others perceive against you to your advantage.. there's this adrenalin rush that I can't compare to anything else when you are about to take down a big pot or win a m.t.t. or whatever. If handled with the right care, preperation and precautions, adjustable strats ultimate discipline and patience it can change lives forever for the better, sky is the limit. I can keep going but that's enough it is truly brilliant and full of such talent grace and skill
I enjoy playing poker for many reasons such as : great game to socialize when playing with friends, it always has its ups & downs on any given day, like playing online as have met many friends doing so, its a game that one can always learn from by watching others, studying the game, and from tracking your play, finally it is a rush when you win ))))))))
Poker is a fun universal game that has no language barriers!
When I started playing the dream was to turn professional and live the millionaire lifestyle. Now I play for fun, pitting my wits against the other players and I'm happy if I can win back more than my $0.25 stake.
Play poker generates a lot of adrenaline. Winning a big pot or a tournament, it produces a sensation hard to explain.Even a decision can make your heart beat... Few games produce emotions like poker.
Poker is a game of skill, not random. Learn how to play, improve style and become a winning player is a great personal intellectual challenge, which moves many people to play poker.
The poker encourages competitiveness, since it is a struggle between people who are looking for the same objectives. To be able to be measured with other players is one of the great attractions of poker.
Poker is a great way to socialize and make friends. The relationships that exist in the world of online poker are usually very close, since that unite people who have the same hobby. Know in person to the friends of the poker is an experience that any fan of this game of skill should miss.
One of the most common motives is money. Dynamic and not very difficult, the game allows you to quickly and easily get a rather large amount of money. The modern poker industry can allow a person who has caught good luck by the tail to live comfortably on the money received or even on the percentage of the winnings. However, not always the game of poker ends well for the players. There are many cases when a person, not correctly choosing a position in poker, is completely lost, gets into debt. But do not blame poker-the game is not to blame for the fact that people are not able to control their own actions. The feeling of excitement is often disastrous and leads to disastrous results, regardless of the type of activity.
Another reason for playing poker is personal growth. Poker develops thinking and judgment, helps to feel more confident, develops diligence and teaches to think ahead. In addition, playing poker allows you to feel people, feel their emotions, understand them better. And, of course, without a sense of proportion here can not do. Even if you do not know when to stop, poker will quickly teach you to understand at what point to work hard, and when-it will be painless to retreat.
Well, the last, the most pleasant reason for playing poker-the emergence of a sense of competition and excitement. In small doses, excitement, as well as healthy competition, are vital to a person. Big and small victories allow you to feel more confident, raise self-esteem.
Among other things, the game of poker may not pursue any goals. Designed for the whole company, poker allows you to have a great time with friends and relax after a hard week in an atmosphere of fun and excitement. If you play poker for fun, you will lose. However, this game is comparable to going to a club or cafe - the money spent turns into something more than just a win or loss at the poker table.
Of course, I used to play for money and now also for them, but over time I began to notice that I needed poker every day, it became a drug for me. And it’s not even about money, but about getting pleasure when you win !!!!!
I play to win a large sum. But, unfortunately, I did not reach the heights of undisputed victories over any opponent.
I want to be a good tournament player.
And it gives me a constant charge for the development of my logical thinking.
