The Big Question

Is poker a game of skill or a game of chance? To answer this,
let’s look at what contributes to each of them!

Skill
SKILL

A game of skill is one where the outcome is
determined mainly by mental or physical
prowess, rather than by chance.

chance
CHANCE

Any game where you spin a wheel, select a
number (or) throw a dice is considered to be
a game of chance.

Poker is a family of card games that shares betting rules. In most poker games,
the first round of betting begins with some form of forced bet;
the action then proceeds clockwise

While the outcome of any particular hand is determined mostly by chance, the long-run
expectations of the players are determined mostly by their actions chosen based on
probability and psychology.
