poker is pure luck and it depends on the automatic card shuffler
Nice trolling, sir.
D-Trainee -- very challenging idea! I want to disagree partly because I have spent a lot of my life writing computer programs to determine probabilities in horse racing. So I came up with this:The process of playing chess, sports, and probably many other things is what makes it valuable. It is a workout. When people excel in these games then they go into the entertainment sphere where they provide happiness to others who can marvel from their skill. Got to have that coffee now. :-)
Nice necro, sir.
It's just logistics and finances. I can't justify 16 hours straight over the board when there isn't actually any chance of me earning a living behind it and I'm a person who needs money. I could start dedicated all my time into chess but I'm 32 and playing for only one year on and off. I'm never going to be able to make money from chess. With poker I can earn a living, teach others, play thousands upon thousands of hands a week without worrying about fatigue so much, etc.
Anyone else really like chess but leave the game for poker so that you could earn a living from the game?
Over the years, I have invested way more money into chess than I have ever won. I wouldnt change a thing...I enjoy it to much.
Yup, one of these threads again...
Let's delete all of these poker threads and start from scratch
kponds http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poker_probability your evaluation is completely wrong on the odds.
well my bad if somewhere else in this thread he specified texas holdem poker or another type of game. That link is only for Poker.
Are we doing this again?
Are you talking to yourself? You are the jackass that keeps bumping these poker threads every month or two...
