A game that uses standard playing cards. Gambling usually occurs in the game. There are many versions of poker, the most popular being Texas Hold 'Em. Poker can often be seen on sports channels like ESPN or Fox Sports even though it is not a sport. Poker is not a sport because it requires no physical activity or physical skill. Poker is mostly luck. Some skill is required because you need to know how to play first of all. However, that does not make it a sport.
