    You can bluff your way to win at poker but not in chess, all the pieces are laid out in chess unlike poker.

    I was in an arguement with a girl I cant stand (she's an Orange county girl, go figure) about chess vs. poker.  She claims that poker is not similar to chess with her snide little righteous attitude (I wanted to smack the shit out of her).  If she could shut up long enough to listen to me tell her that alot of good chess players are also very good at poker she might not seem so ignorant.  I also tried to make the point that you can play the player just as you can in poker and you can try and read their eyes to see what your opponent is looking at.  Just as in poker you can either play the board or the player.  Both calculating and taking chances is required in both.  However, my idiot friend wanted to get laid by this girl that looks like Shreks girlfriend would agree with her on the claim that poker takes more skill. I dont know who I wanted to smack first, her or him.

    Anyways, I just wanted to speak to a group of people that might understand my point of view as opposed to these orange county clowns.   

    Best poker thread!

    Wow I didn't know that poker had world rankings like how FIDE has rankings/ratings for chess players. The world #1 is from USA and world #2 is from Germany:

    Poker, chess, duplicate bridge are similar as the best player will score the best in the long run.

    All three are a game of skill.

    All three require a good memory to play well.

    Of course there are difference in all three games. I like duplicate bridge on the internet as I am more skilled in that than chess or poker.

    Used to be more skilled in chess and poker.

    The only reason people poker is for the chance to win money period. Poker with the chance to win is awful IMO but no one would play poker without money. I think every other game or sport is enjoy for the game itself such as soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis, golf and chesss.  For This alone in my mind makes poker unappealing.

    It is money that gives poker its appeal. Many people like to bet on sports. However, they rarely are the same people who could ever play a sport. Poker allows the bigmouth, BS artists who like to gamble and show how great they are to engage directly in the activity that they gamble on.

    When  someone ends a sentence with the word "period" quite often that person is wrong in what he/she is saying or posting. 

    In this case "The only reason people poker is for the chance to win money period."

    You are quite wrong. People play poker for many reasons.  Even people who lose much more than they win play poker.

    If you are playing poker and losing more than you win does not seem fun to me.  I am sure that many people play poker for different reasons but base of my experiences most people play for the chance to win money and have express they would not play just for the fun it.

    I am guessing that around 87% of poker players lose in the long run.

    Open your mind, there are more reasons people play poker than what  you have expressed.
