In my mind's eye, gambling = slots or the throw of the dice. Poker is more skill than anything else. You learn self discipline, the art of bluffing, knowing when to fold, (knowing when to run ), and why it's important to never show all of your cards - win or lose. These skills are essential when you are out on your own, and daddy isn't there to help you any more
