Welcome to the forums.

Serious question... do you consider poker to be a sport?

What about things like chess?

I begin with with a question too :
do u think it takes more brains and skill to became a good poker player, or a good chess player ?
Playing at the highest level, i think both are equally difficult

I like playing both

Maybe you'll find this quote interesting :''In the most recent New York Review of Books the legendary chess grandmaster Gary Kasparov reviews Chess Metaphors: Artificial Intelligence and the Human Mind by Diego Rasskin-Gutman and discusses the impact of computers on chess and other games. He attributes part of the lure of poker to the fact that unlike chess it has yet to be beaten by computers and perhaps never will be. “While chess is a 100 percent information game—both players are aware of all the data all the time—and therefore directly susceptible to computing power, poker has hidden cards and variable stakes, creating critical roles for chance, bluffing, and risk management. These might seem to be aspects of poker based entirely on human psychology and therefore invulnerable to computer incursion,” Kasparov theorized.''

International Master Ivo Donev, International Master Almira Skripchenko and Grandmaster Josef Klinger have gone on to success in the poker world
