Description

Cet article fait etat d'une enquete portant sur une communaute electronique de joueurs de poker, qui echangent ensemble en ligne au sujet de leurs pratiques et habitudes de jeu. L'analyse du contenu des echanges qui prennent place dans le forum vise a eclairer le rapport particulier qu'entretiennent ces aspirants joueurs professionnels de poker avec le jeu ainsi que le role que joue la frequentation d'un espace electronique de joueurs en regard du rapport qu'ils entretiennent avec le jeu. L'article montre que la pratique de ces joueurs est pensee comme un parcours, dans lequel on joue maintenant dans le but de s'ameliorer pour devenir un jour un joueur gagnant. L'article trace les contours du cadre disciplinaire dans lequel les joueurs envisagent le jeu et se penche sur les principes qui fondent les regles auxquelles ceux-ci disent vouloir s'astreindre en vue de devenir des joueurs gagnants . L'analyse revele en outre la caractere structurant de l'opposition entre poissons et bons joueurs dans les representations et discours des joueurs qui frequentent le forum et montre enfin que la participation a ces echanges permet aux joueurs de se retrouver entre eux, autour d'une meme conception marginale du jeu, alors meme que leur entourage semble plutot susceptible de s'inquieter de leurs habitudes de jeu et du rapport qu'ils entretiennent avec le poker. This article presents the results of an inquiry on an online community of poker players who exchange opinions about their practices and game habits in a discussion forum. A content analysis of these discussions aires to shed light on the peculiar relationship these aspiring professional poker players have with the game itself, and on how it is affected by the attendance of an online space. The article will show that the players' pratices are thought of as a journey, on which one plays in order to improve his game and become a "winning player". It will also outline the disciplinary framework through which the players view the game by looking into the founding principles of the rules that players constrain themselves to in their objective to become "winning players". The analysis also reveals the structuring character of the opposition between "pigeons" and "good players" in the discourses and representations of players who attend the forum. It will ultimately demonstrate that the participation in these electronic exchanges may enable players to gather around a shared marginal conception of the game, while their family circle often seem to worry about their game habits and their relationship to the game.
