Definitely NOT this...It's players like this who join a casino poker room or online table that will make the regs drool.

Short term, anybody can luckbox in poker (even pool to an extent). To win repeatedly long term you gots to have some skillz.

For me they are different rushes. The pool room has people potentially watching your every shot. There is great satisfaction for winning at tournament or beating a player that was better than you...maybe even someone they said you had no shot at beating.

Poker has more of a $ rush whether it is live or online. You are playing for most likely higher prize pools than in pool (hands down most likely). Nothing like shoving all in for $1k to get your heart just thumping. It's a rush...just in a different way.

AZ billiards is amazing. There are ZERO poker losers on here. Every single person who plays cash poker is winner, and most are winners every time they sit down for at least $10k


I like your Url Strickland, he is anjoyable playder

LOL. Most people who are even decent pool players make/made money playing poker. I believe it has to do with above average intelligence and analytical skills.

FWIW i have lost 3k in a day before and my biggest winning day was about the same. The thing is you have more winning days than losing days and try to keep the losing days small and infrequent if possible.

Tommy, not sure if that was directed at me or not, but I never mentioned $ or said I was killing the game at the casino. I just said that it is easier than 25nl online which I stand by 100%.

Are you Christina Applegate?


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

I dunno which is more satisfying to win but I bet poker leads to more frustrating losses.
I'd rather lose to skill than random luck. At least you have something to work on if you just got outplayed.
It's weird, even though I never played higher than 100NL online, I ended up being really desensitized to the money and learned how to leave all emotions out of my decisions. For some reason, I haven't been able to reach that in pool yet. I could be playing $10 sets with a grand in my pocket, and still get a little nervous.

As for the bolded, that's partially true. The problem is that a lot of poker players don't realize that their losing ways aren't really attributed to luck. Just like pool, strong fundamentals are key to playing poker well.

I like winning at pool. In league for my team or gambling a tough match . Winning a local tourney in front of lots of friends. Poker is just money and strangers. I like playing poker very much no bs to get a game allthough less satisfying.

This goes back to the simple element of human nature. Nobody likes to lose period, don't matter the game, winning is winning . I also have a deep theory on winning isn't for everyone either, some ppl would rather lose or find ways to lose, it's a real thing

I do know what youre saying though, i have seen some of the funniest things in the world at the track, you cant help but laugh looking at some of the screwballs walking around, lol.

That old movie California Split had some funny racetrack scenes in it, great movie.

I've been playing poker for quite awhile, and I'm yet to find anyone who says there a loser. You can go on 2+2 forums, no losers there either, and there's a ton of players there. It's just how the game is. It's quite funny.

I can beat a world class field in a tournament playing poker, and have and won 10s of thousands doing so. I will never be able to say that regarding pool, and this is true for many who play both. Poker provides an opportunity, pool provides a wish. Poker is more fun, if you wanted the same excitement in pool... You would have to create a table that will spit balls out even after you made it to up the luck factor.

Winning in pool is no big deal.
Winning in poker is no big deal.

That being said.

I probably like winning in poker better then winning in pool.
Only because poker to me is more a battle of the minds, once your %s are calculated.
Pool to me, is just pool. I win, I lose, I don't really care anymore.

Only way I would enjoy winning at pool in the same way i enjoy winning at poker is if I were playing with the backgammon double cube, or with some option that I can up the bet at any time during the run, and my opponent can either accept the bet by betting against me winning or getting out from there, or pay me off.

Plus, i like action and there is just way more action in poker.
Easier to sit down and play poker where everyone thinks they are gods gift and are willing to put up the money to play.
Where pool is like pulling teeth sometimes to get the right game.
