I have been gambling and playing poker most of my life. I currently play poker online and constantly hear(see) the debate about how one should play. I believe that poker, especially online is 90 to 95 per cent luck, and the skill plays only a small portion in hte outcome. What do you think?

50/50 mate, i'm 18 and i've been playing online poker since i was 14, and luck is important, but especially online you need to know when to throw your hand. never play a straight when theres an obvious flush draw never play a flush draw when theres a higher flush easy (4 on the board one low in your hand) NEVER go all in. follow that and you'll do well. just out of curioisity, whats the most you've ever won/lost?
