That's not poker. Poker is about reading the opponents and calculating the probabilities, odds (and implied odds), and that's called skills...

Seriously mate, poker is all about skill in almost all situations. You can get lucky sometimes but to consistently perform well you must be good.

No limit Texas hold'em is the ultimate card game

I'll have a look at your "pocha" though, thanks, I'm interested in all sorts of card games

I´ve played all kind of card games during my whole life and I´d rather play a pocha anyday over a NL Texas Hold´em
