It can be easy to assume that winning poker online is only for the lucky. Many people believe that cards games like this are really only for the generally lucky. Professionals will tell you that the only way to win at poker at a casino is through pure skill. In all truth it is probably a blend of both of these that make the most successful players.
Then again success is something we can only measure ourselves. For example, when I played my first ever poker game online I thought it successful that I managed to come away from the table without losing any money. I came 3rd and won back my stake. To me this was success! For some this would have been a complete waste of time & to come anything less than 1st is failure. It really is all to do with what we are looking for & what we consider a ‘win’.
Now that I am a more regular player of course I want to finish a game in profit. This is only natural. I set myself a goal of making around $25 a day. Again to some people this would be a complete waste of time & effort and not even worth trying for. It is all relative.
As long as you go into a game with realistic expectations then you can come away a winner. It is a matter of setting yourself a goal that is achievable. Let’s be fair no matter how skilful or lucky you are; you probably won’t become a millionaire playing online poker.
