Poker Survey - Truth about Poker Players
Survey conducted by paddypowerpoker.com in 2006 on British and Irish poker players reveals the secret world of the poker player - they play nude but are conservative, they prefer poker to sex and they bluff in the real world.

Interesting results:
• 55% of all poker players have played the game naked or in their underwear.
• 63% would rather play poker than have sex.
• 13% have injured themselves playing poker.
• 33% would stake their partner in a $1 million game.
• 37% have told little white lies in order to play poker.
• 71% have wanted to destroy their computers after a 'bad beat'.
• 81% believe poker is a game of skill.
• 38% play poker every day.
• 37% think Gerry Adams would make the best poker player amongst British and Irish politicians.

When asked who would win a game of poker between George W. Bush, Osama Bin Laden, Tony Blair, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Il and Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro was voted the clear champ.

Given the choice of playing a game of poker with a historical figure, Elvis narrowly won out over gunslinger and poker legend Wild Bill Hickok. Almost as many people wanted to play with Hitler as Jesus.
