Total non sequitur. The Joe Sixpack that I described wouldn't have the money to play a 100K. I don't have the money to play a 100K. Also, I never said or implied that Joe would be guaranteed to win, certainly not over the short term.

It's not gambling because good players succeed over time and many thousands of hands. When winning bridge players play a card game they can win money over time and get International Ratings Points. When winning poker players play a card game they can win money over time and be listed on the Global Poker Index.

Sorry, I don't see the difference, except that top poker players make more money than top bridge players.
