Most poker players are scum bags.

That was a waste of my life... i don't care about some guy who gets lucky for a winning.  Yes... internet poker is 100% luck.

This guy lost a million bucks in two months?  I never got into this but I'd fucking shoot myself if i was losing 25k a day!  that's fucking crazy.  But I'm a quitter.  I would win like $50 and fucking be ecstatic.  then be done with it.  also, ditto what CS just said.

Ohhh, retract my name from that.  I can't say that.  I try to stay away from making declarations of 100% certainty.  :lol:

Oh, so you just don't care. Ok :lol:

To people that say it's just luck, you're an idiot :lol:  I've lived off of it for the past 8 months.  Fairly comfortably I might add. It's really more math and reading the player than anything.  Takes some practice, but it's not all luck.  I'm getting to where I can put people on hands like 80% of the time now, and I'm usually right actually.

IRL poker is mostly luck, although there is some skill to it.  However over the internet it is PURELY luck.

Poker is a science actually in that probability is a science.  If you are good with probability and bet consistently then you will come out on top.  Sure there are ups and downs, but that does with probability.

Exactly, you can only be so good at betting based on probability.  Any game based on probability is fundamentally based on how lucky you get.

Yeah reading probability isn't luck.  You can do the same with blackjack, which certainly has more luck factor involved, yet if you are good you can still come out on top in the long run if you're good with probability.

I guess you could say your odds of winning on one hand is luck but winning in the long run depends on skill.

Dude, just stop while you're somewhat ahead.  You're wrong, plain and simple.  There's luck involved, yes, it's actually called variance.  But tell me this, when you see it on tv, why is it always the same faces?  You mean to tell me that out of the millions of poker players all over the world, amateur or pro, that those guys are the luckiest of them all?:smirk:

The long run is what it's all about.  When I first started playing, I was losing money out the ass.  Read up, learned some stuff, that doesn't happen anymore :grin:  No millionaire by any means, but for a single guy with a lot on his plate, it does the trick.

Of course not, but probability is equated to luck.  I play poker, i prefer texas hold em' but i also play other types of poker.  While there is definitly skill involved in it, it is mostly luck... that is why phil said "If luck wasn't involved, i would win every time."

So how does one get into online poker?  Where you play, where should one read up and how much extra cash you make on average?

Why hasn't some smart motherfucker created a bot based on some algorithms dealing with poker probability and how to bet accordingly?  Or have they?
