    Some inspiration for you poker players out there.

    A guy from $50 he got free from party poker went on a road to reach $1,000,000 and see the results below..

    At the start... (sort of)

    On a good start yeah? Then onto $1,000,000 +

    Skill or luck?

    People like the above have a skill. The pro's who enter the world series of poker and finish in the top 10 every year aren't just lucky, they are highly skilled at what they do.

    See you on the tables

    Nice but I really would not rest on luck to be honest. Gambling isn't part of IM, it's a far too risky business for splashing big cash around. Especially poker!

    Gambling is definitely a part of IM, if you choose to go down a risky path. It's not too risky if you know what you are doing, not to say there is no risk at all. If you don't want a huge income nor take any risks, go to a 9-5.. and that "especially poker!" part... you lost me on there..

    Poker is not a lucky game, it's calculated speculation.

    I personally think this forum is big enough to have one thread about online poker. There was threads before about spread betting and nobody had an issue with that.

    while i am open minded on poker, the game is based on luck.. the game you play is entirely based on what cards you will be dealt with, get good cards your good get bad cards your either gunna have to bluff or your fucked.. how is that not luck?

    Not to offend but this comment is totally wrong.

    Yes. Luck plays a part, but speaking as someone who earned my paycheck doing nothing but playing poker there is a lot more than luck involved.

    Playing the player is more important in 8/10 scenarios than just playing to cards which really takes luck out of the scenario

    I think running $50 to 1,000,000 is a very incredible achievement. I personally hate online play because of the variance caused by playing 120+ hands per hour. But it is amazing non the less.

    Its funny how some people get so seriously the "here is IM forum"
    I dont see a lot of you having problems with the numerous threads about hot chicks making workout or funny images!
    I think this is a blackhatforum not 9gag or damnlol!
    As for online-live poker all players who play for making serious money and not for hobby know that the game in the longrun is not based on luck!
    Op knows whats he is talking about so anyone who thinks that poker is a game of luck play him 100 Heads up tournaments! If its a game of luck the average always will be 60 wins/loses - 40wins/loses! Believe me the wins from his side will be always over 75-80 ;)

    Kudos to the guy who made the money, I do agree though please be aware that gambling is just that gambling so newbies out there dont think this is your instant shortcut to riches as it will end badly.
