What does playing poker and fun have to do with each other? Both everything and nothing at the same time. For most people, the game of poker involves money. You’re playing to win money, get back the money you lost last time, or you’re losing money. Now, the game can be fun if you can get over the money issue. The game can be played for free on many social networking sites these days, can be played live at a friend’s house, or at a charity event. Playing for close to nothing can also take out the money aspect of the game and turn it into a fun game between friends.
Ignoring the money is the best way to get some fun out of the game. If you can get over it, you’ll enjoy the game much more. Same goes for playing to win your bonus deposit money. If you can ignore the fact that you have to play a lot to get the money they claim is yours, you’ll enjoy the game much more. Moving past the cash will elevate your game to a whole new level and bring the game back to where it’s supposed to be, a hobby or activity as opposed to a job.
For some poker is a job, for some it’s what they love to do. If its something you love to do its no longer work, which will bring the fun back into the game. The best jobs are those that you love to do. If you love to play poker and are good at it, this can work out for you. Of course, there’s much to think about before turning poker pro, but it could always be an option.
With the right group of people the fun will be brought back into the game as well. Playing with coworkers can make both the game enjoyable as well as your work life more enjoyable as well. If you engage in activities with coworkers outside of the work space, you’re nine to five life will be on a more friendly level. Playing with family can also be enjoyable, as poker can replace Monopoly as family game night.
Competitions amongst friends can make the game more fun as well. Keeping stats as a league can make the game more competitive in a good way. You’re playing to prove whose number one but at the same time doing so in a manner that can not only be tracked but gives the winner bragging rights as well.
There’s more than money to the game of poker. The more options you look for, the more people you start playing with, and the more you choose the location you wish to play at will make your game that much more enjoyable.
Think about ways to make playing poker more fun and you’ll soon less think about it as a game of wins and losses and more as an activity that is meant to bring people together in a mental competition.
