of course yes, it is a mental sport, just like chess. only that there is the random factor in the deal of cards, but then it is all mental and you want great skill and training to be a really good player. regards
Yes for sure. It involves much more the question of knowing how to play the game than anything else, of course you need to have a little luck sometimes, but in general the technique of the game predominates
I agree that poker and chess are not sports, however auto racing is definitely a sport. Auto racing is very physically demanding, requires great skill and is performed in front of others for entertainment. Auto racing checks all of the boxes required to call it a sport.

Yes I consider poker to be a sport. I believe that any activity that requires training and practice to develop a skill and opposes two or more opponents against each other to determine a winner is considered a sport.
Well i am sweating while playing so thats definitly a Sport to me
I guess it depends on your definition of what a sport is. If chess is considered one i guess so is poker. If you consider sports some phisycal drill it isnt.
