How important is income and how much money you have in poker?

People always say poker is 70% skill and 30% luck or something like that, but leave out how much money they have. i think its more like 25% skill 15% luck and 60% money.

If i was a millionaire I think I would be 10Xs better than I am now, just not worrying about losing rent. playing rebuy tourneys and rebuy and add on as much as I want would greatly increase chances of winning.

If I played any pro heads up online for $1 games i think it would be the same as playing anyone else. but for $100 it would be way different

Do you agree with me ?

Your thinking reminds me of a lot of freerolls players saying no problem its free.

Do you think that free poker is not poker Question Question Question Question.

Even if you have plenty of money and play bad poker you still will be a looser. Agree Agree Agree Agree

I strongly disagree with you in the following aspect.
If i was a millionaire i would never play poker to win money.
I would play only for the fun of it. So i couldnt test the theory of yours,
that you could be more good if i had money to spare,
since i would have been a recreational player Smile

If you are millionare, you are no playing $1 heads up. You play big stack games and any loosing pot is the same problem as you loose $10 now. And on high limits play the best players - you will loose more pots, more money, more % of your bankroll. The value of money is just relativ, the more you have, the more you invest, the more you can loose...

I'm not 100% sure if I get what you're trying to say there, but I think you're trying to say that when you play poker with money you can afford to lose you'll play better than playing a game which is out of your bankroll and playing with fear... if so yes you have better chances of winning Smile Thumbs Up

So, OP do you want to say that money would not be a problem and you would play poker just for fun you would be a much better poker player than you are right now?

If this is the case i think a bigger bankroll could solve a part of this problem for you, of course you would still play on a lower limit...

If you are gambling money that you cant afford to lose it is obviously going to affect decision making and thus you will never play your best. If the money doesnt affect you at all you will become more relaxed and play more freely
