There is an element of luck in poker, Donkeys live and die by it. Skill reduces the dependency on luck and will protect your bankroll from variance, but there will always be bad beat stories because someone(donkey)relies on lady luck and refuses to fold that rag hand preflp who in turn draws out to the winning hand by the river. You will see the luck(donk) factor in full swing in freerolls and microstacks ring games.

Yes you're wrong. I already explained this. Drawing hands involve a lot of skill cos you need to work out the odds to call and over time the outcome balances out in your favor. It's called variance.

Wasn't me who gave you the Thumbs Down tho. That was harsh just as it was harsh whoever Thumbs Down doomdy.

Hi darthtony.

I voted for 25%. I think is les that 25, but no 0%. In some kind of games, like MTT, luck is much important than others (cash).

Bye.

Skill only ----> 0% luck.


Maybe is the first time I disagree with you; am I getting too old ?? Big Smile
I believe skilled players are strong and it's really hard to beat them but a percentage of luck is required to win something important

Now run these hands 10 million times Smile
Then there is 0% luck involved Smile

LMAO, and if I don't live long enough to play 10 million hands?
Suppose I only live long enough to play 5 million hands?
Suppose that I already won ALL the pot with luck that I was supposed to win in 10 million hands?
And that all the losing hands would still be to come in those other 5 million hands.
Suppose I can't play those hands anymore because I am DEAD!
I WOULD DIE RICH! Big Smile

Luck is only a factor in the short run I guess. Like doomdy said later, run those hands a big numbre of times and you'll spot the winners

Well if you shove QQ and he shows K+ something beside A whit him you can be sure you will

win every lets say 8 times out of ten maybe just maybe less.....but if you study your

hands you will notice that..... and whit every pocket pairs you will usually will be in plus......because even AK must be made hand to beat you....

that is my opinion

see ya and good luck at the tables

As i said before, its 25% luck and 75% luck.

But some ppl are really skilled in being lucky if u know what i mean.

it's been mentioned on every poker forum a million times before, but I'll repeat what to my knowledge is the general consensus.. And that is in the short term (especially very short term) there is an incredible amount of luck involved. This is your swings, massive good luck, massive bad luck. Missing you 80% favourite hands 10 times in a row, bad luck. Hitting you 20% favourite hands 10 times in a row, very good luck.

But over a long enough sample data, the odds play out, the same way a casino makes money, despite some patrons having very lucky days. So once you've played poker everyday for 5 years, or an equivalant amount of hands, whether you're a winning player or a losing player will be entirely determined by skill.

Which is why everyone preaches so much about bankroll management, because you need to be able to last out your loooong stretches of bad luck without going bust.

Now, for the central question, what % of luck plays a role? I think doomdy is essentially correct in saying 0% luck 100% skill : in the context of being a winning or losing long term player, I agree completely.

Now if the context is an individual MTT or SNG or Ring game session, then there is also a luck factor.. In a 5000 field MTT you might factor luck anywhere from 10%-60% depending on how good your game is and whether you're talking about placing 1st (i think a high amount of luck is essential to beat a field of 2000 and come first, because even if you get your chips in as 5:1 fav, the 6th time you do this you may lose to a bad beat and be out of MTT)

In the context of a Ring session with a bankroll to support reloads, I think the luck factor should be a lot lower than an MTT, as there's no 'pressure' with blinds going up to open your ranges and shove with cards you'd otherwise be folding, or limping with. And even a single table SNG requires a bit of luck. Proof of this is if you took a group of 6 people all of varying and measured skill factors, if you got them to play 100 6 seater SNGs the most skill player will NOT win all 100 games, why not if it is 100% skill ? Because luck and cards will play a part in each individual game. But if you looked at who was ahead after 100 games, most likely it will be most skilled player. After 10,000 games, then almost defintely the most skilled player.

So yes, in a single game or session, there is luck, ultimately, it is ALL skill.

IMO

For cash games 15% and SNG + MTT 35%. The rising blinds in tourneys force you to make decisions you probably wouldn't make in cash games, so luck and timing there is more important. In cash game skill, patience and reading the other players is far and away more important than luck. I think donks are your friends, when they kick you in the head and you see stars remember: most of their donk moves do not work and will pay you off. But it hurts when they beat you! GL Blink

i think poker is a game of skill but some luck does count.
if you play for short term surely luck is more important but for long term luck factor decreases and it depends on your skill if you are a winning player or not.

i think 25 % and more because its just the game there u not win only for good hand holder there u win by lucky rivers or turns so luck is the part off poker game and all off us know it

not the best hand wins wins the luckiest hand

good luck all Tongue

Andriukassss, who are you talking to? If this is directed at me I assure you I am no pro. This is my opinion. I was merely answering your question about how you can control drawing hands.

Please note: I DID NOT give you a thumbs down. I have never given you one to my knowledge as your opinion is as valid as mine. I agree with doomdy and I don't understand why either of you got thumbs down.

No doubt luck as something to do with any card game, because diferent cards have different values, and who as better cards wins, its as simple as that! But remember that in Hold'em you play with two in the hand plus three from the five that goes to table, and while the game is developing, bluff also counts a lot, thats why knowing when and how much to bet in each part of the game is so important. One thing is for sure: even if you play agressive and wisely, your oponent can always be a calling station and end up with a better hand: when that happens, its his luck working for him... but that doesnt happen all the time!

@ Jessthehuman: great post +1 Thumbs Up

--------

If u see poker short run, yeh there is a luck involved.

If u see poker as a lifetime investment, only skill.

Losing players will allways loose money no matter wot site they play on.
Winning players will allways win money (giving stakes offcourse) no matter wot site they play on.
