Now that we are a little familiar as to what Poker is, why should we play it?
The least important common reason in playing Poker is for the money. Contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of players do not play to make money. It takes constant focus in order to make money from poker. Most people simply aren’t interested in that as it takes too much concentration. While winning money is never a bad thing, it isn’t their primary focus.
The average poker player plays casually. They play Poker as they would any other hobby. We use it to bond with friends, family, and even strangers. It is a past time that they can play in the background while catching up with friends, bantering and having a good time.
In a more serious setting, it is also a game in which we use to test our wits versus others. The act of betting, raising, and bluffing to force an opponent to fold away their hand is so satisfying. There is a sense of excitement when pitting oneself with another person and seeing who will blink first. After all, who doesn’t like a challenge from time to time?
