The main reason why poker is so addictive is this is a game that requires both skill and luck. You need to be skilled in order to start winning and it will take some researching and practicing before you can say that you are good at it. It will also require luck because you will never know what cards you are going to get.

There are instances when you may get the best cards but because you lack the skill, you can still not win. Skill and luck would need to go together before you can get the prize money that you have always wanted. Some become so addicted to poker that they need to play it every day and there are also some who are perfectly fine with playing it from time to time.
