Who is Marvel's best poker player?

#1 Posted by ExtraLarge (243 posts) - - Show Bio

Many times we have seen several Marvel heroes engaged in a poker game. Has it ever been established who the best player is?

I guess it would be Gambit.

The Thing. He's the who started them. Wolverine is another one who is often seen in them. Gambit would make sense but I don't think hes been invited to the FF or Avengers poker games.

After further research, I have found that Cannonball played in 2 games. Both times he claimed never to have played before and both times he won big. That should make him a strong contender for the best of the bunch.

I'm thinking a poker game involving Thing and Gambit should be the final resolution to AvX.

Also including Cannonball, who will of course claim never to have played.

Not sure. Either Gambit or the Thing.

Wouldn't it be Longshot?

Every Marvel telepath

Anybody with the power of telepathy, fate-influencing abilities, or precognition.

Does having a power that allows you to cheat make you a better player? Also, would anybody actually play against someone with telepathy or luck powers?
