I would consider poker akin to gambling earlier until I started playing a bit of the game and discovered that there is more to poker than just gambling (it is fun!). I don’t think I am great at playing poker, but I am game to playing good games. Remember the movie Casino Royale? James Bond tries to guess the villian’s card moves – fails to figure out in between but manages the final game! Poker was not supposed to be a quiet game. Rather, players would jabber and takes jabs at each other; as today’s article will tell you – poker language was used to both intimidate and study the opponents.
