Both fantastic games, I'd recommend playing both.
...and big blank spaces.
Chess is sovereign
Have I answered this question already? No? No.
I'm simply stating, although I enjoy both games, chess is the better of the two that's all.
Poker pays a lot better than chess.
Poker attracts more money and a joyful crowd, chess rather backyard nerds. I know people don't want to hear this but facing the reality it's exactly like this, with exceptions of course.
Both are great games, doesn't matter who someone is
Every game can be great and it's a somehow irrelevant statement "... who someone is". If you want to reply to my post then read it entirely. I implied a slight correlation, nothing else.
