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

I think a lot of the people who play it tend to be nerdy types who have a lot of time to devote to learning card games and are intensly drawn to the money that poker can bring them so they can "buy" friends, and also drawn to a competitive card game, as they have been playing one for a while. I'm not so sure that MTG actually provides many useful skills at the card table. I played MTG back in elementary/middle school, although not super competitively.
