To Adelson, and those who agree with him, I will point out that skills are essential to success in any endeavor – sports, medical or dental practice, writing, acting, teaching, drilling for oil, investing in real estate, operating a business and playing Sultanpoker88.
The greater the essential skills acquired, the greater the success. That’s why successful people strive for a proper education and continue to practice and learn throughout their lives – increasing their skill level.
To Adelson, I would ask: Are you aware of the Mark Twain newspaper report of the jury trial of a group of men who have been arrested for playing a card game similar to poker? It was back in 1870 in Kentucky.
A special jury was chosen, including highly respected church people who (like Adelson) came to the courtroom convinced the game was one of opportunity – and not a game of “science” – of skill. Before the trial ended, the special jury unanimously declared it a game of skill. I agree.
And, recently, as reported in the Card Player article, in 2012 the federal court also declared poker a game of skill. That conclusion is reinforced by the fact that one can make a living from poker – unlike other casino games where the odds are in favor of the house. A federal court ruling, based on an analysis of millions of online poker hands: “Skill can dominate the element of chance.”
