Is poker a sport?
Tue, July 10, 2007

Poker is one sport where strategy, technique and an ability to bluff can outweigh a lack of experience. As Pittsburgh Penguins' forward Maxime Talbot is fast learning, luck often plays a big role in poker - much like an NHL game can be decided by a puck that accidentally deflects off a skate or takes a tricky bounce.

Talbot hopes to call a few bluffs

No poker is not a sport. You dont need any athletic ability at all. Its like all gambling alot of it is pure luck of getting good cards so not much skill is needed.

Poker is NOT a sport. Games and sports are not the same thing at all. When 80 year old men/women can excel at it, it's not a sport.

Poker, like Monopoly or Euchre, is a game. Not a sport. Putting that on an all-sports channel ranks right up there with competitive eating, something recently televised ostensibly because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too exciting.

No poker is not a sport. What athletic ability do you need to bluff someone ? None.
