Poker is definitely a game of skill
Everyone says that poker is a game of skill, what with the amount of time you spend studying your opponents, calculating the odds, and building your poker persona. The statistics prove it too, since only 12% of games are actually won by the best hands on the table. Certainly, skill plays a large part in poker. Otherwise, final tables wouldn’t have so many familiar faces. If luck was the prime factor in poker, then it would have been impossible for Hellmuth to get his 11 bracelets. If luck was the most important factor in poker, then everyone should just drop the cards and head for the slots machines. Really, no matter how much the courts may argue it, poker is definitely a game of skill.
