The answer is quite simple, poker is a fascinating game and deserves all your attention and time. Why? Let us find out:

THE MENTAL CHALLENGE

Definitely, one of the main reasons to play the game, no other game incites as much mental challenge as poker. What differentiates poker from other card games is that you don’t just play the cards in poker, you also play the opponents and try and defeat them mentally even if you are way behind in terms of the strength of your hand.

 

THE MONEY

One of the main reasons that occur to most people is, of course, money. Almost all amateur players have that dream of winning the big TV tournament or online and raking in that million-dollar prize.Any money a poker player wins can be used as a measure of success, but it is neither the only one nor even the most important one. For many players, money is just a part of the game, not the real motivation behind adopting it.

 

THE FEAR FACTOR

The same reason why people seek the thrill of amusement parks, skydiving, bungee jumping and so on, Poker players enjoy the thrill that comes from the unpredictability of poker. There is a certain drive that comes with this type of thrill-seekers who loves to bet big, win bigger, talk loud and laugh even louder. Poker gives them all of these and more, which very few card games can.

 

THE COMPETITION

Poker players thrive on competition, the more competitive the field, the greater the thrill. Playing and competing against the best players gives a unique satisfaction that all sportspersons desire. Poker is no different to this.

 

THE CONTROLLING OF EMOTIONS

The emotional roller coaster that surrounds a game of Poker makes one capable of handling the ups and downs of life in a better way. Handling the emotional breakdown of a bad beat and subsequently devise a winning strategy to get back competing teaches Poker players the valuable lesson of handling tough situations in their own lives.

 

THE FAME

If you have watched any so-called “reality TV” shows, you’ll know that some people will do anything to see their faces on television. TV poker tournaments offer an alternative that is equally as exciting and much more comfortable. A win at a major TV poker event now brings not only a large cash prize and a beautiful trophy; it can also earn that lucky player an endorsement contract with an online poker site, magazine interviews, book contracts and other TV appearances. Successful online players sometime get invitation to play alongside famous sportspersons of other fields. It is quite simple, if you are successful in Poker, there is a lot of scope to be famous.
