Card game is generally based on our luck and hardly depend on our skills so it should not be considered as a sport

still, i personally do not consider chess a sport. a sport is primarily a physical contest. i would not call a math competition or spelling bee a sport. some card games may be games of extreme skill, but card players are not generally athletes.

not familiar with most of those. by spiders do you mean spider solitaire?

any card game by nature requires a lot of luck, but some do also require skill and strategy. regular 5 card poker is certainly mostly dumb luck... but no limit Texas hold'em poker (the main event of the world series of poker) is certainly the most sporty of card games. the tournament is a grueling test of endurance. 10,000 players play 12 hours per day for 5 days... and half of the final table of 10 is always full of the same old pros. you cant do that with blind luck.

I'm not familiar with all of em. But not the ones on casino and stuff. In my country, Callbridge and 29 games are the most popular. They have some techniques to em. Similarly 7 cards and spiders has a certain fanbase as well. I would put them on as a sport. Poker games include some with no technique at all which shouldn?t be called a sport as well.

All I'm saying is those purely based on gambling out of luck cannot be called sport. Otherwise, its a great game to spend our brain time on.

and what card games do you think should qualify?

I believe sport does engage you either physically or mentally or both by making you follow some specific rules and regulations to make your way to defeat your opponent. So, you have to be engaged, have to follow rules and be disciplined and of course you?ll need to have a win-loss situation to call an activity a sport.

Now card games that involve bets and are operated purely on guesses and luck can't be called a sport. Games that have techniques and certain regulations to the process must be called a sport. Otherwise chess doesn't qualify either.

depends on the card game and your definition of sport.
