RE: POKER IN THE NEWS--IT IS A GAME OF SKILL!
Duh Rolleyes! They finally figured it out. Of course it's a game of skill. They've already ran simulations and analyzed hands in the past that have shown that it's a game of skill. For me the best evidence that it is in fact a game of skill is that there are so many professional poker players out there, I've never heard of a professional roulette or slots player!?
I hope this "new" evidence helps to remove the ban.

If a poker hand was won simply by everyone at the table turning over their cards to see which hand is the best, then go ahead and argue that it's a game of luck. But, it's not that simple; the game is about decisions. It's not necessarily the best hand that wins, it's the best player.
