Poker is definitely a skill game however a lil' bit of gambling is involved as well because cards are dealt on a random basis (at least they should be Blink ) so you can't be sure that you'll take the pot even if you have a really strong hand. This makes poker the most exciting game on the planet! Smile Dollar

Most of it skill, but even some idiots can win in poker if they play often. So a small part of it is luck and has nothing to do with skill Blink

It is obvious its a skill game, even if sometime variance (dunno if its the exact english word for it) can affect your results, its definitely a skill game. You can see the part of luck isnt important on long term because poker pros keep winning on and on, so it cant be luck Blink

Exactly correct. It's like in the movie Rounders (which every poker player must've seen)
"how come it's always the same guys that make it to the final table of the world series"
Maybe not a 100% correct quote but it's true

Poker is the skill of making your own luck. Chance favors the prepared mind.

Alas when alcohol is involved the mind is prepared to believe that the chances are luck is in your favor...... Big Smile

I voted skill. You make the correct choices under given circumstances and end up winning with your skills. Yes luck does have a factor, like the guy who wins with J3o or 94o by catching runner, runner or some sort of crazy flop beating AA's or KK's (for example). But in the end luck doesn't win in the long run, skill does. Also with your skills, you are able to extract more money (thru betting tactics) from people that play with luck and make profit from their mistakes.

That's the beauty of poker you can play with skill or gamble. On roulette, blackjack, slot machines, etc... the house always wins on the long run, so can we call them skill games? I can agree with this in the house perspective, because the house never gambles.

The same with poker, skill players get involved only with a positive edge against their opponents, making it a skill game. Donkeys and fishes are complete gamblers, so for them poker is another way of gambling. Good poker players just play the rule of a house on their tables.

So my answer is both. And I like to be on the skill side.

Definitely poker is a skill game. Of course, like in life luck have influence on your game. However, if someone's game plan is based only on the luck I hope that he/she has a lot of Dollar

The more professional you play the less luck is involved as in the most cases you know what outcome to expect instead of hoping for a magic card.
