I love poker - a game for the smart and talented. There are hundreds of millions of them in our world. Others equate this game with gambling, but I have not seen a book anywhere on how to win at craps or slot machines. Luck, of course, is one of the components of poker, but it fades into the background in a game where you need to constantly make decisions. In other games of chance, it is the die, the ball, or the electronic brain that decides whether you win or lose.
Poker, like any business, needs to be learned. Those who do not want to understand this make up an army of gambling addicts who squander the latter on the net and feed the professionals.
If you've even mastered the basics of hold'em, I can't promise that tomorrow you will play at a professional level, but in this case there will always be a dozen losers who are ready to pocket 1-2 dollars in your pocket.
Again, if you haven't read a single book, or watched a single poker video course, you have nothing to do in the poker rooms, because your money will remain with those who take the trouble to do it.

For me it depends. online poker I play 90% because of the money. Live poker, specially with friends, I play for the fun and the money is a bonus.

For me, poker is a hobby that gives me pleasure. And although I rarely win money, I always get pleasure.

Few months earlier, it was 100% because of money.

Nowadays, I play plenty freerolls, including the CC ones - mostly I've started, because of the weeks long runs, bad beats have made me very angry, upset -, so it is a bit fun, too (90%+ still money). Anyway, I do not have any reaction, if example, a small run comes against me. Just happened yesterday, 4 tourneys, 7-8 hands came in row (within 6-7 minutes), all went pre-flop allin, all cases I had the 80% pre-flop chance, and I lost all. (AK vs AQ, AQ vs A10, JJ vs 1010, AA vs 86s!! etc.)
I don't bother, care at all, even happy it happened in freerolls... This is my part-time quit from poker, playing the freerolls...

Poker is a game with a lot of nuances and it's interesting and I also like to make money playing poker. For me, poker is sport, art , science.

Mostly for having fun However if you can win some extra money for playing poker it makes this game the best in the world.

Why do you play? Is it the money? The thrill? The fun?

For me it’s probably a combination of all three! I really am passionate about this game.


I play poker just for fun!

I play for fun,and to win some to keep playing.I make enough from free rolls to play small and micro stakes tourneys.I like to compete,and to win,but the main thing for me is it passes the time in the cold winter months.

I think I just like this game and money is not important !!! Personally, I would play without money, but if there is an opportunity to play for money, then it is somehow more fun to play)))

Poker is a mathematically challenging game for me. I play with the idea that I would like to WIN every pot I enter, but fully appreciate that is impossible. The odds, percentages, and variance all suggest that the focus must be on long-term results.
I play online with a group of friends in a Limit Holdem game, three times a week. When the covid lockdowns end, I will also play live with many of these friends, as well as at casinos.

To have fun. I think that every card game you work on the mind and that helps with memory.

In the beginning, I was also attracted by the interest in the game. Then I decided why not earn parallel interest. Now I have lost interest in the game, but I have not lost interest in money.

¿Por qué juegas? ¿Es el dinero? ¿La emoción? ¿La diversión?

¡Para mí probablemente sea una combinación de los tres! Realmente soy un apasionado de este juego.

I want to prove the theory of one-shots that, given certain variables and the current situation, nothing will prevent me from taking the Champions Cup, regardless of professional qualities, to understand the champion's rule and how this title will change my mind. There is a theory that it takes 10,000 hours to master each profession. So I have the opportunity to refute this theory or become a professional in poker = the result is a cup.
