http://www.gamblinghelper.com Online Poker Addiction and college students. Is online poker addiction is becoming more prevelant amongst college students. With the recent explosion of online poker, I think the question needs to be asked; Is online poker addiction becoming a growing problem on college campuses? I think the answer to this is a clear yes. As poker affiliates we all love to see new players entering the market, however w also know how possible it is for young and imature players to lose everything with the simple click of a mouse. Although online poker addiction is not a hot subject right now, I think that the topic will become an increasingly larger issue in the coming months and years. I just read last week about a college player who robbed a bank to pay off online poker debts. Unfortunately poker is a game of skill and many younger players have delusions that they can "beat" the game. Let us not forget that almost 90% of all online poker players are losing players. I remember how irresponsible I was just with credit cards in college. Thank god internet poker wasn't around yet. So back to the original. question. Is online poker addiction a problem that is spreading amongst colllege campuses? I'm not sure, but stories like the one below are popping up more and more lately. http://www.gamblinghelper.com/forum
