Playing games can make la... just got to know how and be able to do it... I've made a few K off it, include free equipment and it goes up a little more, but i think slightly under 10k in 3-4 years. But still! It sure beats not winning anything right...

Anyway, im still playing losing poker games so, yeah, pc games were the shit...

You have to run good like a luckbox in poker and you can make 10k or more too. Poker isn't about skill, its about luck actually in my honest opinion

Very subjective. Some people will disagree with you.
I personally think that luck plays a part in this game, especially in SnGs & MTTs.
But I do agree with Leslie that skill play over luck in cash games.

Professional Gaming at a young age can have a big variety of results.
For my case I got to fly around the world at a very young age, like going to Los Angeles to compete at 15 was a great experience, A xiao di di seeing the other side of the world and going against the best of the best in the world.
And the tournament winnings $$ gain at such age is really tremendous as compared to other classmates getting small dollars from parents.

But for every successful story we hear, we often missed out plenty of those that failed in gaming, droppped out of school and end up working a 1k+ job ... barely making ends every month.

Every Phil Ivey born is 1000 fishes sacrificed~ always remember this if you ever become a PRO! Do not look down on the fishes because its them that you got to where you are!

cheers ^_^

I like this!
Problem of silent evidence evident. The dead and the lost don't live to tell the real story.

To the subject of whether poker is about luck more than skill..
I have one question.. If poker is about luck, then can luck explain why final tables have so many familiar faces?

Poker is a game of luck. SERIOUS. Its whether ur getting good odds to ur money. WE ARE GAMBLERS.

Presume now i offer to flip a coin with u. You choose tails and i choose heads.
We have a wager. I'll pay u $10 if its tails and you'll pay me $5 if it heads. Thats 2 to 1 to ur money right?
You are getting ODDS TO CALL NO MATTER WHAT!!

Same situation as AK vs 22. Its a coin flip situation but what if someone offers u 2 to 1 instead?
You MUST CALL

You hold pocket Kings and people shove all in after u raised PREFLOP. U know only 2 cards win you which are pocket aces. You are getting 1 to 1 to your money. Take reading ur opponent aside. You'll still call because ur more den 90% of the time ahead with pocket KK.

And now when you play poker, READING comes involved and if Villian is a tight player, u know he will only do this with KK/AA so you decide to fold here because ur either even money or behind :) i know i might sound abit contradicting but.. what do u guys think?

I always believe, that those people who strongly believe that luck plays a huge role in poker either

1) does not play enough hands
2) are losing players before they are able to play enough hands to conclude for themselves that luck is impt short-term but not long-term.
