I really want to hear your opinions i am not saying that just like that , just imagine let's say if you have problems in work/school family problems it makes you nervous and can you play good poker after all of that?

eh can we? what do you think, guys?

Two of my friends have become a poker pro , when they could not find work in the city.
At the same time they started with a no deposit bonus ) ) )
And now live quite not bad .
There was one more, but now it is just a bartender , even though 5 years he lived only through poker .:)

Fix your life first. Then let Poker ruin it. :cool:

Seriously, if your life is crap, do something to make it better. Poker can only add to the frustration and will definitely give you money issues if you aren't well balanced and ready to play.

i think good mood helps you playing better if you can control your emotions nothing can effect your game exept if troubles in life are really serious, life came first poker is just a game

A positive out look is needed in every aspect of your life. Just two weeks ago I was thinking positive and winning at everything I played. Then this past week I was feeling down, and depressed, and everything I thought was negative, and even though I know better, I played some and got knocked out of 8 MTTs in a row. And I lost every one of those holding a good hand. So to make it worse, I'm like OH SHIT here we go. But I not completely stupid. I stopped playing for two days, and just yesterday, and feeling better, I cashed in a MTT for $90 I think. I posted it in my tread I DID IT. So there are many ways that will help you change your mind and that change will help you see things differently. GL to you

Yesterday I had quarreled with his wife, and the as result is lose of the tournament over 2 steps up to the final table . The mental emotional excitement I did first mechanical error and then tilt and set an all-in with dubious chances. As so as good game with a bad life - unlikely, GL 2 All

I think Stu Unger was a good poker player while having a life of disaster.

Poker and life can both be bad at the same time. Last two weeks my poker game seems to have gone to the toilet. Which makes my life suck so maybe it's the other way around.

You can but it is just one more strike against you. Anything that takes away from you playing perfectly will add up. If you are having money trouble and arguing with family then you get drunk and go play chances are you will lose. Anything you can do to make things as good as possible will help your game. You can't change luck but you can set yourself up to take advantage of it when it comes to you and limit your loses when luck is against you.

I do not sit at the tables at all, if i feel myself very bad.Before an important game , I usually rest on the fresh air or sleep.:)
The second option is usually after work:D

However, it is very difficult, I think, so control yourself - but you need to try to clear himself from bad

I can not say anything about the day, but yesterday in this tournament I sat for 20 minutes and just made passes (nothing at all middle pair was not), down the blinds and suddenly leave me on the arm QK Well, I think it is necessary to flop the look, flop QKK, here and think after that it's a bad day, or on the contrary good, or is it just luck one eye looked at me, the bank immediately x4 did :) so I think even if there is a series of misfortunes, even if the day is not you wait and you certainly :) come while you're in the "game" you can make a difference

Of course it is possible, nothing is impossible, but I think it's very complicated, because it affects our psychological and would impair the performance during the sessions.

No, because if your life is poor, you dont believe in yourself and as a result your game is poor

life

The family accept or support is a great victory, because unfortunately many people do not credited in the potential and end up thinking that we will lose money or it will not lead to anything, However if it is a sport that you like and do him good. should practice yes, my advice is to know separates a time for play, a time for famila and especially to program how much money u can spend without compromising the income of the family.

I guess It really depends on the problems you have. Lets say your problem Is money, In that case, playing poker would be a NO-NO because you can't afford It and by playing poker, It'll cause more strife between you and your "Wife/mother/father/family" and etc. Yet If the Issue Is say, a relationship Issue over poker, again this will cause Issues by you just playing It, thus In that case you'd have to figure out a way to play the game that you love and be with your partner at the same time. Now again If a family member Is Ill and you're the only person that can take care of them than really you shouldn't even be playing as this member of your family Is asking so little of you when they are Ill that how can you even live with yourself knowing you chose this game over them?

So my answer would be It really depends on the Issue Itself to really give a better answer to the question In the first place
