    I watched the 2010 Poker World Series and it interested me greatly. I was wondering if Texas Hold'em is easy, and if so, is it easy to be good at?

    It’s an easy game to play; winning on the other hand may be a completely different story. Even pocketed bullets lose.

    i think it might be very hard as my husband practises at least twice a week and still is a loser

    I'm only allowed to play Scrabble Poker because I don't 'get' the concepts of real poker although I usually win (by accident)

    If your question had said “easy to WIN at LONG TERM?”, the answer is a resounding NO! The 5 to 10 percent rake and fluctuations in luck will always kill you in the end.

    However depending upon the type of players at the table the game can be more about the players than the cards, sorting the difference between the two is the real game.
