online poker with me
Just a playground on weekends or holidays
In search of additional income
Make up for the void my holidays and how about you.

I play poker everyday but freerolls mainly and occasionally S&G, tables either. Poker is a hobby for me however i have nothing against that one day i will become a professional player and make poker profitable to me. Achievement good place (final table) on some big tournament can make my dream come true but i think it's only a dream and i will stay only as hobby player.

Believe me when I say that being a professional online poker player is almost impossible today (at least if you live in a "first-world country") and will be even harder in the future with all RTA (Real Time Assistance), RTS (Real Time Solvers), and of course AI.

Online Tournaments will probably exist longer than cash but will be more for entertainment and in lottery-style formats like Hypers, KO, and Spins.

BUT you can still use online cash games to train your skills and use them at LIVE poker which is still soft in most places.

My prediction for the future is that poker online will be more and more casino-like and the sites won't want winning players.

So play for fun and entertainment online and if you want to go pro and earn money you almost certainly have to play live.

For me, this is a hobby that, in addition to pleasure, also brings money. Poker is a great pastime for me, and it also brings me income from time to time. Fun plus the opportunity to earn additional income is just the perfect option :)
I love poker :)

Of course not. What a job if, according to statistics, only 5% of players play for profit.

I play for profit, freerolls and cheap tournaments, then I withdraw my winnings. But you can’t call it work, because... at work you know for sure that you will get money today

For me it's a fun time. Relax in the evenings after work or play with friends and family on the weekend.

Of course no. It's a hobby, a game I really like but it's not my main activity.
Even if I win some money with poker, I know I will never become a poker pro.

Với tôi, đây là thú vui ngoài niềm vui còn mang lại tiền bạc. Poker là một trò tiêu khiển tuyệt vời đối với tôi và thỉnh thoảng nó cũng mang lại cho tôi thu nhập. Vui vẻ cộng với cơ hội kiếm thêm thu nhập chỉ là lựa chọn hoàn hảo:)
Tôi yêu bài poker:)
True but it is not the main job with my minimum capital to become a poker expert

Online poker is a very important part of my life but it does not pay my bills, poker makes my life richer in ways money can never do.

I don’t consider poker to be my main job, since I only play freerolls where the earnings are only enough for pocket expenses.

Poker is not a source of income but winning is still nice sometimes.

Not at the moment, but it is one of my complementary income, it helps me a lot to complete the monthly expenses.

This is working with statistics, analyzing your own mistakes and searching for tables with weak opponents to increase your chance of winning. Working control of your own nerves, the ability to keep your face in the face of a bad card is just as important as not jumping for joy in the face of a good one.If there is income, then it is work.

I play poker to make money but I don't think it's work because you need a stable income and regular poker may not be profitable for several months in a row and you don't have to win money, and this can't be allowed in life every month you have to get money
