So it was a night of Poker again. It really feels good when you can have a feel of how luck sometimes can help you in this game, how to be rational and logical in some cases, plus bluffing and raising the stakes even when you don’t have anything to start off with. Winning and losing changes hands quite often in this game so don’t be surprise if someone who appears to be a winner or loser in a round have a turn of fate and switch positions in the next.
I just learn something new today as well as one of the other player told me that poker is actually not gambling. You get to see the cards you’re holding and you can calculate and measure the odds you have in order to win/lose, and you can fold and leave once you think that it’s a bad game to continue. The decisions are in your hands. So what’s considered as gambling? Blackjack, Lottery, Roulette and Tiger Machines etc are. You put in money and just hope that you can somehow, miraculously win.
Which makes it really interesting since Poker is simply a game which you play with other plus managing odds, fears, risks and taking chances at the same time. It also reveals certain personality of how much risk you can take and bear and your attitude towards money. Watch at how people reacts to winning and losing as well. Play the game and just watch the people around you and you’ll get what I mean.
Anyhow, I just play for fun and it doesn’t involves a lot of money anyway 🙂
