People that say games like online poker are the same as gambling simply don't understand online poker. Over the long run (hundreds of thousands of hands), variance will no longer be a factor and the better players will win. It's similar to the stockmarket, and definitely a better investment then a lottery ticket. Look at communities like where thousands of players talk strategy and learn about the game, it's not gambling.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
