Why I play Poker
Poker is a game that will humble you. It will build you up and it will break you down. They say poker takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. I don’t consider myself a an excellent or great poker player. I would consider myself an ok to good poker player. You don’t need to be a good player to make money just an ok, and play with players who are less skilled than you. I feel that playing poker professionally has everything to do about the intangibles of the game than the technical aspects of the game.
I play poker for five main reasons.
The number one reason I play poker is the freedom. The freedom to wake up when you want, play when you want, and for a long or little you want.
This is an amazing thing but requires discipline.
The second reason on my list is I like a challenge and variety. No single poker session is ever alike different situations different cards vs opponents makes it so it never gets boring or old.
3. Personal growth.
Poker forces you to take an internal look into yourself. It forces you to grow as a person. If you don’t grow as a person your game will struggle to evolve. You must have discipline emotional intelligence and have keen self awareness to be successful over time at any level.
Money is the reason why most play poker, or at least this is what most say when asked. The ability to earn a living through a card game is an amazing thing. I don’t take this for granted. It has taken a lots of hard work to do be able to do so.
5. Ability to travel
Traveling is one of my favorite things to do! Poker allows you the ability to travel as much or as little as you like and still make money. I have been able to travel all over the country and play poker. I love that I get to enjoy new experiences on my time.
