Where's the edge ?
While the cards dealt may be luck, each hand has a mathematically measurable set of odds, therefore by betting appropriately on those odds, a profit can be made.
It might be skill for a human to work the odds in their head, but computers as we all know, are particularly adept at working out complex mathematical equations.
There is more "skill" at real tables by reading the opponents, but given the figure quoted here of $80,000 seized from one player, I'd happily have that sort of luck/skill edge on my side!
However, I enjoy playing the game, so play at the "play money" tables, therefore no bots for me.
