Poker has always been a staple of gambling all over the world. Whether people are attracted to it because of its engaging mix of skill and luck or because they just want to look as good as James Bond in Casino Royale, poker has skyrocketed in the last 20 years. There are hundreds of tournaments every year all across the world and plenty of poker rooms that offer weekly tourneys and cash games on a daily basis.
Poker tournaments attract a lot of players every year, most of them amateurs who want to try their luck and dream of hitting that big win. But obviously there are also the professional players who treat such tournaments like a way of life. They are there to make a living, not to have fun with their preferred hobby. Even more and more celebrities have started showing up at the big poker events every year.
