fun question,
there are so many important aspects of the game, so you cant just be good in one of them. so my answer would be to keep learning, if you’re good at that you are getting good in all parts of the game, but to make it even more interesting, in order to stay motivated to keep learing you should really love the game, in other words its the most important thing, not just because of teh obvious reasons but also because it will make you a much better player in the end.

so i’ll say the key to winning poker is loving the game, then everything comes in time

I think the key to winning in poker is objectivity: just doing your best to make what you think is the best play on every street, and minimizing your emotional response.

Apathy. You can’t win if you care about losing.

This is the key to winning on Replay…feed off the knowledge and skill of of veteran players. Watch carefully and learn. Heed their criticisms, some which may be sarcastic, while others are congenial. My key to winning is the Friends’ and Frenemies’ that I have on this site. Their "teach"ing has brought me to where I am today on Replay.

intrebare stupida…nu exista o regula…castigul este doar la voi…pierdere de timp intre treburile zilnice.
*Translation *
stupid question… there is no rule… gain is up to you… waste of time between daily chores

Absolutely Alan , coupled with an amount of patience …you may have to fold 20 consec times before you hold a hand worthy of contesting with . I like a court card with something other than a minnow card …kickers can help you . I see many players playing poor option pocket cards i.e 3=7 , 9-4 in hope of solely jagging success …worth hitting it with fair pairs i.e 88 , 99 …they are in the ballpark

stupid q…not such sing
