think everyone can be good in every sport with practice, everyone can be good at marketing, administration, engineering with learning, why not everyone can be good at poker with practice, learning and improving the game.I mean its not about luck its about skill
In my opinion, I disagree with the bolded above - I believe there is a small percentage of luck involved in poker
- there's no absolute guarantee that your skilled self is going to win 100 % of the time (you saw it yourself when you lost with AA vs another hand, there's no guarantees no matter how skilled a player you may be).It's not the same as a set lottery number where it is what it is and you win if those same numbers are drawn, therefore...that being said;....whilst everyone can be good at anything they set their minds to (as per the examples you mentioned in your post) - not everyone is going to be a "winning" player and no offense but your examples are not good ones, since those are skills in trades and shouldn't be grouped into a category with poker players (not even close to the same thing).Ask yourself this question : "Would you be able to still live well, if you were to go broke this instance?"
If you answer no, then poker playing for a living is definitely not for you.
