Playing poker live carries one more hazard than playing on an online poker site. For some people, the thrill of poker spills over into other casino games, or as poker players call them, “games for suckers.” There are always plenty of stories of well-known professionals who clean up at the poker tables, but squander it all away on craps or roulette.
If you want to be a serious poker player, do yourself a favor and stay away from the rest of the casino. If you must play, learn optimal blackjack strategy where you're only giving up a small edge to the house (or better yet, learn to count cards and reverse that edge).
