I like the game and a hobby. I love winning money but its not y i play. I dont mind spending money on it since i enjoy the game and can afford what i spend.

------------
I play mainly sng. Enioys 6max hypers the most but will play mtts and the odd cash game. For reg and turbos i like prefer knockout tournys overall

I like poker cause its a nice break from my second love Backgammon, thats another game that has an 80% luck.
good time killer for sure
keeps my download limit at bay for a day.
never deposited yet at p.oker stars. so not really for the cash.
i tend to play to become the best i can. as my backgammon nic says. VIEEXtreme

I play to get rich and famous of course Big Smile
but it is nice to play something you enjoy and knowing there is a chance of winning some money
and most importantly is the excitement and the adrenaline rush you got when you get so close to winning
i know this because i won't participate in any play money game even if i had free time to kill

i play because i need to buy bread somehow. of course when i play drunk usually those are breadless days or weeks for me, but i grind my way back at freerolls for at least a bagel or two, sometimes even a loaf of fresh artisan bread!
if 100K freerolls wouldn't exist i guess i would have to forget about the bread whatsoever.

i play the poker games for fun

i play when i have time,and all the free dollars are welcome in my bad periodes Tongue

when i need some money ill take some, for me its a kind of survival money.

i play only little game so its not profesional for me.

I like the game. And of course it is even better winning some money on top of it.
It was way much better few years back though, where i had the free time for it,
and with all these worthy freerolls that existed. You could make good money in a monthly basis,
by only playing freerolls and clearing some deposit bonuses on top.
Now good freerolls are history, and the time for playing a poker game is limited and not
even guaranteed Smile since there has been many instances where i said, ok i have free time to play
a game, and didnt even manage to play like 10 mins of it.

I am playing Poker because I just love it. It is a perfect mix out of knowledge, experience and of course gambling. And especially the gambling part of it can give you great adrenalin kicks even when you dont play for much money.

It's different by me. When I play with my friends it's fun and the money is equal. When I go in a Casino I try to make money.When I play alone at home it's that I've to do anything. And I love the game(the most times) it's my favourite hobby and I think I will play it the rest of my life

I dunno why I play poker. I just do. I like the challenge of making some money from nothing, and dream that one day I will be the World Series of poker champion.... Of course I may have to buy into the WSOP one day to achieve this! LOL

Oh yeh! It's also an escape from all the cr@p in the world.

Of course mostly a hobby. When I first started playing poker, I planned that it will be my job .... But the harsh reality gave me to understand that I'm not a very good player for this. So - a hobby. (Oh yeah, I'm still ludoman) Sad

Not lucky person if you earn a living playing poker.Poker one of my favorite zanyatiy.I I would be happy to play and it does not go to the work. But apparently I'm not so good player. I am often failures and I prigryvayu all their money, which is very sad.

These are my cards. There are many others like it, but these are mine. My cards are my best friends. They are my life. I must master them as I must master my life. Without me, my cards are useless. Without my cards, I am useless. I must play my cards true. I must bet straighter than my enemy, who is trying to outraise me. I must get him before he gets me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my cards and myself are defenders of my wallet, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.
