    What has poker given you?

    Hi all, i thought i would ask you all what poker brought into your lives. money? wealth? action? friends? what did you learn from it, what you can apply to "real life"?

    poker has taught to me that im the worst enemy of me. i have also learned the need to question everytime "why?" when it comes to a decision point. as i have experienced it poker helps to read people in real life and realize their reasons and motivations to do or not to do something. and the last thing is that i cant be sure to know anything. im happy that i met poker and maybe im not going to be a great player but i think im already a winner since i know myself a bit better however its not a happy journey all the time but also the moon has a darker side too.

    Really sick. For me poker brought like a tons of stuff out from nothing. This whole collection of benefits built slowly but consistently:

    - Got a starting bankroll and with it got a hobby which actually had the potential to bring profit ( Was WoW ing or playing Diablo 2 in lan A TON before)
    - Got a place to use all my "extra" time at. Not a harmful but useful place. If I had/have some extra time I just pop in a video or play a session. It also knocked out all the harmful addictive stuff like WoW. (God bless that)
    - Got munnnneeey. It was really cool to make my own money. To not rely on my parents anymore and to have financial freedom. I spend on whatever I want buy any clothes what I want eat in Mc Donalds whenever I want go to party whenever i want. Stuff like that. Its cool.
    - I got friends - and with them opportunities. Its incredible how many friends I got thanks to online poker. Poker is really a thing which gets you to know ppl. And knowing people is always a good thing. Helps you get the newest info. Helps you to grow as a player. (and no im not abusing anyone. I think its this mutual "hey lets help eachother" attitude.)
    - About the opportunites - recently I got asked by Collin Moshman himself if I wanna join his coaching team: Team Moshman. Guess what. Was the biggest honor of my poker carreer.

    As a conclusion I really think that with my ~ 2 years of poker playing I grew more and got more than with my 4 years of high school. Not just financially but I think I grew a lot as a person too.

    So I pretty much don't regret anything,
