"Life is like a game of poker: If you don't put any in the pot, there won't be any to take out." Anonymous poker player

These simple words couldn’t be any more true, you always need to put something in, to get something out. In order to win a game of online poker you need to lose a few games before hand. No one can just start playing and suddenly win every single game, losing is part of the learning curve and you need to know how it feels to lose, so winning will taste that much sweeter.

We all take risks in life and some of these risks pay off, some don’t, but that’s why we take them, because of their uncertainty. Like life, online poker is always uncertain, the moment you start making assumptions is the moment you forget about the arbitrary nature of life and luck. Our lives are intertwined with luck, and winning money can rarely ever be explained rationally. One thing is certain though, when you play online poker games for money, you have to spend some money to make some money. From every hand you win, deduct how much money you bet and you’ll realize how much money you really made.

When you play poker it’s not about how much money you win, but how much money you can afford to lose. You only win, if you’ve made more than you’ve lost and it can be hard playing online poker games and keeping tabs on your outgoings and winnings.

This is why it’s wise to play at a site like Party Poker, where you can easily access all the information regarding your account, so you can keep a close eye on how much you’ve bet and how much you’ve won. But always remember, you have to spend some money to make some money.
