Remember to say thanks as you play poker this holiday season!

Once a year, when Thanksgiving is approaching, we are all reminded that no matter what challenges we face on a daily basis, there is always something to be grateful for. Expressing gratitude for the small things in life can help you adopt a healthy and optimistic view of life, which can help you become a better person – and a better poker player.

5 Things to Be Grateful for This Year

  1. You have special Thanksgiving events – One of the best things about the holidays is that we get extra ways to celebrate them. Around Thanksgiving, there are plenty of special tournaments and charity events that might catch your interest and put a smile on your face. For example, the Arena poker room hosts an annual poker charity event with a $14,000 guaranteed prize pool, where all proceeds go towards helping feed hungry families during the holiday season. So, you get to enjoy a fun poker session, potentially win some cash, and donate to a good cause. It's a win-win situation!

  2. WSOP poker tournaments are more popular than ever – If you need proof that poker is not a dying trend but an everlasting lifestyle choice, you simply need to look at the WSOP. After a spectacular summer season, one thing is clear: live poker tournaments are more popular than ever.

    In 2023, the WSOP Main Event had the second-largest attendance in the tournament's history, and there was an overall increase in attendance in multiple events. Those who were afraid the pandemic might harm live poker tournaments can now rest assured that poker events are here to stay.

  3. Online poker is thriving – While live poker tournaments are doing really well, online poker venues are not far behind! According to a report by Polaris Market Research & Consulting, the online poker market was valued at $86.12 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $283.42 billion in about a decade.

    After COVID hit, people realized that while attending live poker events is fun, you can still have a memorable experience placing bets from home. Now you can celebrate every holiday and special occasion by playing a hand or two with minimal effort on your part… aren't you grateful for that?!

  4. More and more countries around the world legalize online poker – On November 9, the Madras High Court in India decided that the Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Online Gambling didn't apply to games of skill like online poker, which means that local players are more likely to enjoy this game with the rest of the world.

    That means that there is a decent potential for you to participate in larger and more profitable tournaments, in addition to facing off against new players in a fun match.

  5. The poker community is always there – It might be last on the list, but it is arguably the most important thing to be grateful for. Over the years, poker players proved time and time again that they aren't only opponents or even friendly acquaintances, they are a tight-knit community.

    Countless special poker events were designed to empower women, help those in need, and just make the world a better place. Even if you don't win your next poker session, you should still be grateful for this little (or not so little) thing.

Thank YOU!
