Money aside, as a form of entertainment that can keep you glued and immersed in the activity for hours together. Whether you are grinding a cash game or you are deep in an mtt its a lot of fun. Freerolls are a lot of fun as well. The thrill of being in the final table, the thrill of winning. These are the reasons i love poker.

I love the challenge, poker is a thinking persons game like chess. it is a very complex game, some people think that if you just wait on good cards you will be a winner. there are many aspects of the game and different courses of stratagy that must be applied and changed frequently throughout a tournament. and when it all comes together and you win, the feeling you get is one of great accomplishment. thats what i love about poker. oh yeah, GO GIANTS!!!

I used to love poker, when it actually took skill to play the game....lately it seems like the online variation has taken a turn for the worst...Shoving all in with 4-9 K-2 and other crazy hands is not poker, its like playing a video game nowadays.

I still love the live game....you know, the one where the best hand actually holds up 90% of the time? the where you cant get away with hiding behind a keyboard and screen and clicking a button?

Maybe the online world would be better if they made you video chat while you played...I bet less people would play reckless ifthey couldnt hide their faces!

For me, playing poker helped knowing me better. And that is, by far, the most and best result of playing poker since, not any tournament win of any kind, not any cash win for the stakes I play, because poker is, in small, just a reflection of the big picture of life.

All greetings! Having read your responses I can draw a conclusion (the truth many will disagree) all of us play not only for pleasure who to stir a brain, but the main thing for dialogue and let this dialogue sometimes silent, but it all the same dialogue.

To tell you the truth.. i don't know for sure , it could be because i like learning new things, or maybe i like to get into some groups to talk and meet new people, to win some money, to train my nerves.. to tell you the truth i don't know.
But i can tell you it's the best game i ever played

I enjoy the competition.
I like that you can learn the game in minutes but it can take a lifetime to master it.
It's also a great escape.... especially if you rungood in a tournament & find yourself on the final table.

dont we all want to be in the positive all the time ? :-) but of course in poker there will certainly be winners and losers, sites like pokerstars rake in millions of dollars in rake so they will always be on the winning side, except for the fines that pokerstars were charged in the usa market which was a lot of money, so those are the liabilities, but ya strong pokersites rake in a lot of cash

I like working with numbers. thinking about each hand as a percentage and if it makes sense to call or not. then the feeling after winning a huge mtt, that cant be beat.

Most people really love poker because they like the challenge of fooling their opponent and taking advantage of them. Money second. Addiction third.

When you play poker that you test weight of different feelings - pleasure of a victory, bitterness of defeat. In poker there is a growth, it is necessary to develop, prove every day to itself and another that you the good player. Poker helps with development of the person, here there is all sports passion, knowledge of mathematics. In general poker is one of the best games. As that so)

I love to play poker because it relaxes me after a long day. I play for fun since I've never won a tournament other a few fun steps in carbon poker. But I would like to get good enough to win some money in the future.
