Poker Strategy Game
It is undeniable that poker has much more strategy than chance, and therefore should be considered a strategy game and not a game of chance; through a few analyzes you can deduce this:
♦ Because in this card game, the player can choose which hand to play and which does not. However, when playing on a slot machine we can not choose when to play and when not, since we must follow the sequence of plays of the machine. In addition, in a slot machine we do not know which play has a greater probability of success; What if you can know in poker, by observing our hand cards and community cards that are falling on the table.
♦ In a game of poker we can raise the bet voluntarily when observing that we have an advantageous game, in other words we can bet making use of the strategy. Instead, raising our bet on a slot machine is leaving everything to chance.
♦ Because in poker, you can have a level of player experience, and you could almost 100% ensure that in a game between a novice and a professional player will always win the latter. In a slot machine, however, it is not worth the player’s experience, the only difference is the luck that the player has at that moment, in other words everything is in the hands of chance.
♦ If poker were a game of chance, we would often see novice players raised high on the podium, which is almost impossible. Instead, we see how professional poker players rise in poker tournaments and often come to the final tables.
♦ Although we see many professional poker players get the final table several times or even win up to 2 tournaments in a year; It is almost impossible for a lottery player to win the lottery 2 times in a year, still playing every day.
♦ In this game of cards as in chess it is necessary to make decisions, this is another reason why the game of poker should be taken as a game of strategy and not as a game of chance. But when we play in a slot machine which is considered a game of chance with just reason, we do not need to make decisions or take a head; Simply the game develops almost instinct.
Although there is no doubt that in the game of poker there is chance, because every time we get good cards in our hand we are facilitated progress in the game and perhaps the victory; In any case, success is not assured if the appropriate strategy is not used. As a final conclusion, it is proven that in the game of poker the strategy has a greater percentage (perhaps 90% or more), randomness on the other hand influences the game but in a minimum percentage.
