Nowadays, poker is one of the most widely played card games in the world. There are more than sixty million poker players in the United States and over one hundred million players worldwide from online poker alone. Many people play not just for fun but also consider it a real sports discipline (just like us). There are many good reasons to think so. The card game requires quick-thinking counting skills, a subtle understanding of human psychology (just think of tells and bluffs), a little nifty wristwork, a good memory, and of course, a bit of luck too. If you’ve ever watched a professional poker tournament like the World Series of Poker being played by hard-core experts, it’s pretty hard to say that poker isn’t an actual sport when you see how much skill it requires. There’s a real science to it, and these incredible men and women have worked it out.
