Random cards gives poker that notion of game played with the need of a chance. Now, one just has to know how to use that chance. You have both sides of the coin in your hand. It’s you who decide: to bet hard when you have good hand is telling others what you have in your hand; to bet hard when you have bad hand is telling others what you would like to have in your hand and hope others don’t have it; to call when you have good hand is hiding from others what you have in your hand; to call when you have bad hand is hoping for the table to bring what you need to win. Chance is everywhere: for you and for your opponents.
has to be both skill and luck. BUT as the old saying goes you make your own luck . the pros cant be that lucky to win all the time that's where the skill is . THE BEST CARDS DON'T ALL WAYS WIN . unless you have a showdown.

Poker is about skill and chance. You use your skill to make the right calls and outplay your opponents based on what you can see, but need the chance element based on the turn of the cards. Simple really.LOL
