    It's not difficult. If you learn the hands and what beats what then sit in on a few hands with people who know how to play, you can pick it up in 15 minutes.

    Although I play both (and in my university days represented the uni at both), chess is far better, unless you want some fun when poker can be better. I'm laying claim to be one of the best TSR chessplayers with a BCF of 109 and roughly this makes 1800 ELO. I challenge all the people who think they're better to play me

    yeah I prefer poker to chess, hold em not any of the other versions, looking at someone picking up on their tells, working out if you have the nut hand.
    Chess is good to, but not great.

    Lmao MR_JR. You seem to have the arrogance acquired from the "I'm 15 and I don't like my parents syndrome."
    Ok so you are useing a personal insult to try and prove your point.....

    No need to talk like James Bond, son. Doesn't make you sound like a better player. :P
    Oh im ever so sorry. Perhaps I should rephrase myself...again. Learn the diference!

    I do. You could have read the 'lingo' from the Internet. Your arrogance is also way too powerful to assume you are talking anything other than rubbish. I've never seen you play, so you could be crap.
    And that gives you what grounds to suggest im not a successful player


    small tournaments...golfish
    60 players

    Small in the way youd call a cat next to a sphinx small

    You're joking right? Draw is about GUESSING!!
    And the whole point of being able to see the cards from the flop is that okay they now make up part of your hand: and that gives you a great hand.... but what does it do for everyone else on the table? If you've got full house in Draw then you're pretty much sorted... but if it's HE then a) you don't know if someone else has the same cards as you and b) you gotta wait for the river and table cards to actually know wth is gonna happen. You have to think far faster

    And please for the love of earth HOW is Hold Em easier to get to grips with that Draw?!?!
    Draw oooo look you have 5 cards now let's count them up
    That's a pair
    That's a triple
    That's a full house
    That's a straight
    It's really not that hard to look at your own hand and count the dots
    Ok lets go with the guessing thing for a second...
    Draw you are guessing 5 of your opponents cards
    HE you are guessing no more than 2...

    And i dunno if youve noticed, but the hand rankings apply through all high poker forms.

    Yes if you have a full house in Draw youre sitting pretty. What are the odds of that in comparison to HE. Based on card numbers you have 7 caards in HE to make that boat compared to 5 in draw. Draw requires more skill to actually see that there IS more to it than guessing. Its more about playing the pot odds mainly and trying to read people. HE is more "what could help him beat me when were bothign useing these 5 cards here"

    Dont get me wrong. HE is probobally the more enjoyable, thats why its taken off. But its also easier to master...and easier to pick up

    Ooh a challenger! Shall we play a correspondence game over TSR? We should not use computers or opening books or anything like that. Choose your colour!

    At my school we started a poker club, be it an 'underground club', if you will. It was all going well until some guy lost his expensive watch in a game, at that point we realised it was all getting a little too serious.
