When i'm winning i tend to think skill... losing luck.

The cards you are dealt are dealt is the luck element. What you choose to do after that is the skill element. Skilled players work out the statistics of their hand and how likely it is to win, they work out what their opponents are holding and try to bluff them into either playing or quitting and they know when not to play the hand they're dealt. As someone else already said, if poker was just luck the same people wouldn't keep winning. I like your philosophy of skill when you win, luck when you lose! lol
