If you have not heard before, the Texas Hold’em Poker is one of the casino games where less randomness and where else can we use our skills to win. In this game our actions have more influence on the outcome than other casino games like craps or roulette.
Recently conducted a study of Cigital, a company linked to security. The results show that the Texas Hold’em should not be considered a gamble, but one skill.
For the people mentioned Cigital study evaluated a large number of items of a popular online casino, finding that 75% did not arrive until the final moment of the unveiling of cards. This means that in most cases the players are not willing to complete the bet and choose to end the round in play.
Of the cases where they unveiled the cards (25%), only half was the best hand winning. The other half was won by players with weaker hands.
In conclusion, only 12% of the time the games are decided by chance.
When then a game where skill predominates, with practice we can become better players, and even if it is the day of luck, we’ll have a good chance of winning.
