    Cool Successful Poker is SKILL not LUCK (article)

    In this article, Steven Levitt (author of Freakonomics, also an economics professor) compares highly skilled poker players success rate to those of major league baseball players.

    It is an interesting read, and one that could be vital in the case to prove that poker is not gambling, but more closely related to sports.

    I believe that you need a little more lucky to be a sucessful on online poker than on live poker, for me is 30% lucky.

    I just said it is 90% skills and 10% luck so Poker is game of skills.
    So yeah if you want to run deep you need to be skilled players.

    Skill over luck any day. When you play slot machines, you need luck, poker is a game of skill not chance.
