Ok so recently I've had a burn-out and found out that I play poker for all the wrong reasons.

Here are a couple of reasons to play poker:
1. Fun
2. Timewase
3. Money
4. Result
5. Grow skills
6. ...

My biggest reason was the money, the fact that you can get rich quick or die trying, wich is problaby a very wrong reason and the reason why I always play outside my bankroll and lose so much.

What is your reason to play poker?

I hope to get an session this evening on the pokerfriends teamspeak about this subject with Spike, Kitty, Razzys, JDean, (the other cash player that I always confuse with Spike and forget his name ), and everyone else that would like to join us.

I play poker because there will never be an end game. There will always be something left to learn and some way to get better no matter how much I improve.
The credits will never roll. I will never see "Congratulations! You have beaten POKER!"

I love the thrill of winning and knocking someone out a tournament.

I also wanted to find a way to suppliment my income by 5k-7K a year.

I'm not looking to become rich, just want to pay a few bills by having a fun hobby.
