I've never been one to have hobbies nor have I ever collected anything. In fact I don't think I've ever made a sustained effort in learning or pursuing anything that didn't have a direct benefit to either school or work.

Poker is the only past-time I have ever consistently wanted to do, or learn to do better and I've been playing for over three years now, ever since I saw my first wpt game on TV. I can and have spent countless hours reading, watching and debating poker hands and I've pulled many overnighters where I've foregone sleep because I really wanted to continue playing and I haven't even won any serious money yet!!

And having read and spoken to many  poker players both on this blog and at the tables, I know I'm not the only one.

So here's my question to all you bloggers out there:
Why is poker such an awesome game?
