Why I love poker.

Speaks for itself.

It’s a brutal game, but can be played with civility.

It’s infinitely challenging. The more you learn, the more interesting it gets.

It’s like life is almost every way, so you’re always learning stuff you can use elsewhere.

It’s a great way to learn about yourself and to improve if you’d like to. You’re you magnified, and if you fix your leaks, chances are there will be broader implications.

It’s mental boxing which is much more stimulating than physical combat.

A poker table is the most interesting place. You meet all different kinds of people you’d never encounter together anyplace else.

It’s never boring, and never the same twice.

It’s like meditating. My mind never wanders at the poker table, and that’s just about the only place it doesn’t. I’m totally there at that moment, seeing everything. To be thinking of something else would be like thinking of what to have for dinner while driving a race car.

How about you? Why do you love it?

  1. I concur the poker table is as melting pot of lifes experiences manifested thru an individuals orchestration. Growing up in the city I always thought the city was the melting pot of the world. Well it is never to late to learn where the true melting pot lays. On the felt baby,on the felt!
