Capstone #5

My main inquiry question is “Is poker a game of luck or skill?” From my interviews and research it is clearly a game of skill. I found proof of this in multiple places. One place I found this was on an article about AI programs beating poker pros. By learning billions of hands, the AI programs can beat the pros. Another way to prove it’s a game of skill is by looking at a chart of repeat winners. Do you think these players won multiple times because of luck? My interviews also taught me that poker is a game of skill. Andy said if you play one hand, anyone can win, but if you play a million hands the winner is the more skilled player. I saw a few pros say it’s a game of skill on youtube. This all leads to the answer to my question. Poker is definitely a game of skill.
