The world is full of games of chance and games of skill. We see this exhibited in horror movies all the time. We see a few random moments in which characters have to make a decision and if they make the right one they live, and if they make the wrong one, they die. Life is full of questions and answers, each one yielding a very different result and response. If you could figure them all out, you’d be one great person, but that’s not how things work all the time. In poker the same notion is true. You are given a set of cards, and you have to decide which one of them will get you the best results. A group of specific cards can make you a millionaire, or can drop you out of the sky.
Poker games are often times the point of contention with those that have a gambling problem. But truth be told, they are nothing more than games of skill compared to many games of luck. Life is full of those things, skill and luck games, and horror movies exhibit that all the time. The next time you have some time to think, consider the juxtaposition and look at how many bad choices are made within film, and how they can relate to card games of skill that can generate millions, but not always without losses.
