You all should try my version of strip poker. You start naked and when someone wins a hand, they tell one player to put something on. :lol:

That's why golf is not a sport.

Golf does take physical exertion, you have to be able to walk a golf course. Swing a club , and bend over to pick up and put down golf balls.

Golf is a sport,
Cards is a game.

A sport requires a certain level of fitness and physical exertion. I don't consider being able to sit up at a table and stacking chips a display of physical prowess and skill.



To everyone of you out there who doesn't think that Poker is not a sport:

Physical: Do me a favour, you try sitting, in basically the same position for 3 hours without getting up once. Tell me then how physical it is.

Also, when it comes to stip poker lets be honest, who the hell wants to play strip with someone who isnt in shape eh?

I'm currently in three, free, live poker leagues, play 1 on line money site and two other sites free versions. Various home games. Texas has only one legal casino way to far for me to go to. Now that I'm moveing further from the border of Oklahoma I probely wont be going to the Casino's there as offten.

I'm also thinking of playing in next years WSOP 1k buy in event.


Ummm does it sound like I like the game of poker? (texas hold'em is the style I play)

i guess then that NASCAR isn't a sport either.

i like poker, but we always play for fun, not terribly serious about it. we onlt have a $5-10 buy in. watching it on tv was exciting when i first learned to play but it got boring after that. they are way too technical for me, with odds and strategy and all that. takes the fun out of tricking your gullible friends out of 5 bucks each :lol:

If poker isn't a sport there is no friggin way that NASCAR is a sport. I could see an argument for F1 as it requires an actual driving skill, what with straight aways and hard corners. It takes timing and skill to pass and win an F1 race, along with a kick ass car. NASCAR requires you to go around in an oval for 500 laps. It's no wonder that trailer park hicks with more teeth than brain cells enjoy this event. That having been said, by default it has to be pretty popular in Atlantic Canada

physical endurance, agreed. mental endurance on the other hand im gonna have to argue that one. A 2 hour poker tournament can be more mentally draining than a 5 hour marathon. A tournament that lasts for days can cause a state of near vegitation for the participants if they are not prepared. Part of keeping a sharp mentality is by keeping the body fit. Helathy body = healthy mind.
