I have played poker with many dogs, many times. I do not recommend it and have ceased to do it.
Yes, dogs can be taught to play poker and many of them travel to poker tournaments to compete, the bastards.
The problem with playing poker with dogs is that they are not sly or devious and they never bluff. When a dog gets a bad hand they immediately throw their cards in, because dogs don’t bluff. When they get a good hand their tail wags and many players think they’re bluffing. Again, dogs don’t bluff.
In addition to this, when experienced people see a dog’s tail wagging (The Bastards) they fold and the dog wins the pot. One might say, “Well it’s not a very big pot” and they are correct. Dogs beat you by attrition. taking small amounts of money many times during the game, the bastards. So if a dog shows up at your table, do not allow it to take a chair. If you run an open table policy, well, your in trouble.
Take my advice. I know what I’m talking about because I have lost thousands of dollars to dogs, the bastards. You have been warned!
