agree with asiangravy.
in poker, luck can be mostly discounted unless you only play a small sample of hands.

Books talk alot about pot odds, the math and probabilities behind poker. That is what we call the science behind poker. What about the art? People often mistake art for the ability to soul read opponents, have a 'feel' for the game, and make uncanny hero calls. Believe it or not, that, gentlemen, is overrated.

In my opinion the true art of this game is the passion as well as the determination to work hard at it for long hours each day. Like any skill, learning it takes a day, mastering it takes an entire lifetime. So read more while you can, learn about ur pot odds and implied odds and clean outs, partial outs etc. But understand this, those are merely the beginnings of ur poker journey. When you can finally learn to work hard at accepting the swings that arises from this game, and when you can actually tell yourself at 2am after a day of donking around with school work or ur own fulltime job, "I still have 3 more hours of god oh so mind numbing grinding to do, and I have to persevere.", you would truly be on your way to excelling at this game.

Other than that, hope everyone donks and lucks out at their poker games, be it live or online.

20% money (confidence)
30% luck
50% skill (knowledge, math, patience, tells and character building)

well this is depending on how you play the game and most of the time varies not only to yourself but may be due to your opponents.
