POKER, AMERICA'S MOST SCIENTIFIC GAMBLING CARD GAME Poker contains a greater skill element than any other card game including Contract Bridge, Pinochle and Gin Rummy. Poker is the one and only game where a skilled player may hold bad cards for hours and still win the money. "How come?" you may ask. Because Poker is a game of money management in addition to card management. It is a game where there is a correct technical play in every situation. It is a game where the best possible Poker hand need not win the pot, due to a bluff.

I believe that there are more science and skill in Poker than in Bridge for the reasons that follow. My observations of Poker games over the past 60 years have convinced me that if a Poker expert played three average players for 52 sessions, each lasting six hours, the expert player would emerge the winner 51 times. The odds against any such result at Contract Bridge under similar conditions are high.
