If you're WSOP Main Event champion Jamie Gold, Joesph Hachem, Robert Varkonyi, etc., you have to beal real lucky. To be Daniel Negranu, Doyle + Todd Brunson, Johnny Chan, or any other big name pro, you have to be really skilled. I didn't think Joe Hachem was as much of a "lucky player" as Gold and Varkonyi were. I don't think he was as good as Raymer but better than those other two. I'd like to be a player who tries to rely more on skill but have some luck to go with it at times.

It's definitly both! But I think the higher the limits the higher the part of your skills! You will win a lot lucky hands, but for winning money constantly at playing poker you have to build strategies and skills! Sometimes you have to gambel, but most time you have to be patient and stay tight, till the moment and the circumstances are right to make a move!

You certainly must know how to play poker well.....but I think luck is a lot more important....let the other guy take the bad beat!
Don't argue with me...
