This is a discussion on Olympic sport? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I love poker so much. but my opinion about this https://www.cardschat.com/news/poker-as-an-olympic-sport-no-longer-a-far-fetched-idea-53113 is not so welcome.
Poker is is not sport, for sure.
Poker need to stay,
The game where not all depends on you? Don't know.... I also don't get how to select players.

re: Poker & Olympic sport?
I agree with you.
Interesting though, the article also mentions pole dancing. While I know very little about that particular activity, I can certainly see its merits as an Olympic sport over poker. How is pole dancing really any different from Olympic gymnastics?
I can play poker, sometimes even quite well, but I sure couldn't pole dance.

Also they choose what is popular. What attracts people more.... I think it explains all.
