comment Why is real-money-betting necessary for poker to be fun?
If your goal is to make money, and you are playing a game for nothing, the optimal strategy is to convince your opponents that they can beat you. You can accomplish this by playing poorly, winning but publically mis-analyzing why you won, or against better players by playing well but building in a few inconsistancies you think astute opponents will know and attempt to exploit in future games. This is why the game will be uncompetitive and seemingly "random", in my opinion.
