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.

well,i like playing poker for pasttime ,promote skill ,and have money if i won .in my time of journey i was first interested on casino ,which more easier to win and run without any permission but on the end id still got no profit instead putting you to a failure in life.

I play to get rich and famous of course 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 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 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)

For me poker is the second job. I played several years for fun plus I won a lot of money there but now it's just like a business. I lost all nerves because there a lot of donkeys whose take me out from a lot of good mtts. But no donkeys no money
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.
