Default Why do so many MTG players end up getting into poker??

Disclaimer: I know nearly nothing about magic the gathering, other than it is a fantasy-style role-playing card game taken very seriously by those who play it, with leagues, tournaments and rankings.

With this article about Jordan B., though it feels like everywhere you turn there's another pro who got his start playing MTG. I would have thought that chess (which i played) or even backgammon would be more likely foundation-building games than MTG, but maybe that's because i don't know enough about it. What's the allure for the kids who play it, and why do those same attributes turn them toward poker?
