Does Studying Poker Really Help Your Game? (Just Ask Tony...)
Making a commitment to study poker seems silly to some people.
In fact, I am sure you’ve often heard it from friends, co-workers, and family members: “Poker is gambling and at the end of the day, you need to be lucky to win at gambling”.
The next time you hear this all too familiar refrain, show them to this tweet from LearnWPT Instructor Tony Dunst...
