This is a discussion on If Poker were an Olympic Game: Which country would win the gold medal? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I think the Argentines are going to be fighting for that beautiful gold medal. The other 2 countries would be the United States and England.
Do you think that Agrentines because you are from Agrentine? ... Is it possible that there is another adequate justification ....
... Although I am from Ukraine, I think that the national team from Somalia would win the Olympics.
It's hard question. I think it doesn't mean necessarily to be the country with the most active players but definitely they can have an advantage, even way I go with countries like Norway, Iceland, Romania for the podium but for surely this scenario can be debated only until such kind of contest will happen and to see the results.
What should be the value tournament entry? If it is too high, it is more restricted for richer countries. Now, in terms of player registration, what could happen is to have a lot of players from Greece with advance registration, if you understand what i mean.

First of all poker will never be an Olympic event.
And what do you mean by poker. No such event as poker.
But if a poker variant or variants were to be included, I think all countries would stand a chance, due to the gambling element.
Athletics, rowing, swimming, boxing, weight lifting, etc, etc, etc, all have many different events. So poker would have to be the same. If that were the case, then I would stand a fair chance of representing New Zealand at Stud Hi/Lo. Probably even win the gold medal.
I think the Argentines are going to be fighting for that beautiful gold medal. The other 2 countries would be the United States and England.
I think the Olympics depend on physical strength. It's not like poker, which depends on intelligence and patience. But since I'm from Africa, Africans or "African descent" are the ones who won the most gold medals in the Olympics.
