    One of the most important attributes for playing poker is having passion for the game. To be a great player I believe this is a must. In my opinion passion is a term applied to a very strong feeling about a person/something or in this case- poker. Passion in poker also can be describe as an intense emotion, with compelling enthusiasm or desire to win and excel. On the other hand addiction is a state that is characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding behavior, despite adverse consequences (gambling) that can also be relate to poker.

    Proofreading before hitting "Post" is always a good idea.

    The point? I think it's to prove one should not surf the webz and post stuff after consuming copious amounts of alcohol and/or green leafy substances :)

    When poker no longer became gambling but instead a skill game, that's when I really got into poker.

    Oh and don't tap the aquarium
