Besides, I've never played chess or poker, so I don't understand the nuances, the strategies, the calculations, the risks

Patti. Nor have I, which is why I asked for clarification. Chess is an intellectual game, if I understand it, but so is poker. Poker, however, is tactics and chess is strategy. Poker is hand by hand, win or lose. When you've won all the chips or lost them, the game is over. Chess is a longer struggle of minds. And now I've confused myself even more. Never mind. Maybe if I read Longacre's book, I will get it. Not.
