888poker The game of online poker is one that often straddles two different spheres. On the one hand, the skill elements present in the game make it akin to a sport or, at the very least, a mind sport like chess. On the other hand, the unavoidable element of luck in the game has led many to say that it’s not a true sport. Now, if we look at the latter statement in more detail and compare it to recognised sports such as golf, then it doesn’t hold true. Despite golf being a highly skilled game, there is still an element of luck in it. The run of the green, a gust of wind or an unexpected bounce can all help or hinder a player. Although a terse example, it does show that there is an element of luck in golf as there is in all sports. Essentially, it’s the amount of luck and the impact it has on the result which causes people to class something as a “real” sport or a “game of chance”. “Good Luck” (CC BY 2.0) by Dmitry Baranovskiy
