good in the past poker was not a sport but just a game of luck or chance, but nowadays it is becoming a sport of strategy and patience I see it as a sport that. day I will be a professional player! well it could have at the Olympics !!
What sports do you know where many players play each for themselves at the same time?
Poker is a sport and in my opinion it should be even Olympic, even if it is stopped, it involves a lot of adrenaline and strong emotions, it is a pleasant thing to do and if it were valued, it would be much more popular.
Yes, I do believe that poker is a sport.
It's a sport cause you have to prepare yourself mentally and physically.
Mentally by doing some meditation / yoga, taking naps to refull your energy and resting your brain, always performing some maths even if you're not playing to keep all the stuff in your memory "odds, equity..."
Physically by doing some exercises, running, going to the gym a couple of times a week cause playing 8-10h straight isn't that obvious for your body and by avoiding sedentarity.
It's a sport also cause you'll find all the ingrediants: Preparation, Goals, Challenges, Competitions...
I don't think poker is a sport.Sports competitions are those who are stronger physically, they are competitions of dexterity and strength.Poker is a competition of mind and luck.I can compare this game to chess., checkers.
