The fun of online poker should never be lost
Of course you play at the virtual tables for real money and when it comes to money then is also a certain seriousness in the game. Nobody likes to lose money and especially when it comes to higher sums of money, there is a certain thrill and often you notice the tension of the players. That’s all right and is part of the game. But everything has a limit and should not be crazy. The fun of the game should always be in the foreground, which is true for amateur players and also for professional players.
To be successful in the long term and to develop you have to have fun with what you do. It’s the same for a normal job and it’s nothing else in poker. If you go to the tables with a bad feeling and have to torment yourself in order to play, that can not be good in the long run. Also, the idea should not just be about what you can win or lose. Sure, we all know that it’s all about money, but it blocks us when our thoughts are just about it. You have to enjoy the game, the will to evolve, to be better than your opponents.
Many providers also offer very interesting promotions which bring a little extra fun and variety from the normal game life.
You have to find out for yourself if you enjoy poker or if the fun may have been lost a bit. Sometimes a short break is a good idea, just after or during a hard downswing. Often you are just overplayed and you need a little distance to get back on track and enjoy the game.
