It's a hobby until you start making a dependable income from it. Sigh, so far I'm a hobbyist. :(

For the way I play poker it is definitely a hobby. I really don't think I could handle the ups and downs that people face when it is there job. I like to play it for fun, and when I win some money it is always fun to see what I can turn it into.

Poker, for me, is self-development!

It is learning about the risk/security factor in myself. Because risk/security are major dynamics in the mind (and therefore major causes in the decisions one makes about ones life) I do believe I need to face up to these. Otherwise I will always be ruled by the unconscious factors of fear - or its converse: greed/overeaching oneself - because I may not have a balanced sense of the dynamics of security and risk in relation to myself as an individual. Or irrational/substitute responses such as choosing friends/TV/movies/books/games through which I live risk vicariously. Even foolish attitudes to risk: wrong food/job/habits, reliance on insurance/pensions to cover for mistakes in not leading the life I was meant to, in the way I was meant to.

I find the virtual world of poker a perfect framework for exploring risk/security. I believe that if I mange the poker journey rightly, I may, if I choose, play the game professionally, for money.
