I would say that gambling people are inclined to this (loodomans)
That's how I play I can always stop I do not have tilt and do not lose money for stupidity and ludomania
Read books about psychology and keep a good bankroll

My opinion is that professional poker is game same as football for example. You have sponsors who pays players to play football and to give him a trophey and titule. and in poker you have sponsors who pay money to some player to win the tournament. Professional Poker plays for money. And that is regular job same as football.

All every other situation of playing poker is simple gambling. Its funny when people nowdays say that poker is some kind of sport. those are non sens.
We are all gamblers and YES, online poker is addictive and we are all addictive to the game to the easy money to the adrenaline.

Yes if you get to the point where you play and end up depositing and depositing instead of keeping a bankroll and making some withdrawals then yes you can be addicted. Also if you spend too much time where it affects other things in your life you can be considered to be addicted. Addiction is relative though and depends on person to person. I think at the point where it starts to affect you even a little negatively without a positive return is where you can say you are an addict. Just like some people can not drink any alcohol while others can drink responsibly. I think the most important is to value having fun more then money and if you end up playing for the money you may just end up with quite a negative in terms of money and fun.

It can be an addiction if you play freerolls always. I think everything happens if you have a plan, make a decent bankroll at the end of it, or deposit once you create these at an optimal level to keep you. The most important thing is to have a plan, and reach that goal. Then try to play mopderadamente a time a day, personally I would like to leave a little, I play many freerolls trying to make some money, and then see if with a decent bankroll I start to maintain myself.

We are all addicted to gambling money, anybody who enjoys playing poker for cash is a gambler.

Nothing wrong with that, just make sure when all said and done it's a positive not negative. Bankroll management is key here, use your brain and don't be impulsive, when making decisions ... it's not rocket science and TBH if your gonna deny that playing poker for cash is more like a sport than it's a form of gambling... well your already starting behind the 8 ball - I started out thinking that way, so didn't bother reading up about bankroll management and get the importance of keeping my impulses in check etc

poker must be seen as a sport, because there are people who from outside think that poker is a game of chance more like roulette or slots, but it is not so. 75% of the game is based on mathematical calculations and luck influences a lot, people who fall into the addiction is because they do not control their level of betting and come to a time when they only play to lose, in my case I love poker and I've been playing for 10 years, and therefore you have to know how to manage the time to play, be with the family, share with a friend, today we see many poker professionals and when you see them on TV they look so happy. that do not think that online poker is an addiction but a very nice sport and that many of us love today.

Hello! yes of course, online poker can become a drug addiction. I think any gambling can become a drug addiction. Now many people can face different problems after the test of excitement. The main problem is that this game can attract a person and he will not be able to stop. Now from the game of Poker to the dependence a little distance. Of course, it is considered to be surmountable, so you need to limit yourself in the game. Thanks to this you can definitely avoid a number of problems.

What emotions do you gain? - Euphoria, happiness, in which certain chemicals are released in your brain. Subsequently, the brain becomes accustomed to these substances and without them a breakthrough begins, albeit not as serious as when using heavy drugs. Therefore, drug addiction is unlikely to be called, but heavy dependence poker can become!

Yes of course .... poker is addictive and has very serious repercussions .... if you do not control it in time you can lose everything ... that's why it is very important that you impose a game discipline ... for example how much money you can spend playing without affecting your economic stability, it is also very important to establish schedules to play ...!

It goes without saying that anything can become an addiction these days. Poker addiction usually involves someone who can not control their emotions and are constantly trying to recoup their loss. This is a bad combination.
