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 .In 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. :Kh :Kd

    You might say that good players are passionate about learning and dispassionate about the money. Bad players are emotional about the hands and their luck, and addicted to winning pots and the chance for a big score.
