83. I know what poker is. In fact, I can easily calculate the odds of various hands.

Two pair - 13 choose 2 times two times 4 choose 2 times 44 (edit, whoops 44 not 48) divided by total number of poker hands 52 choose 5

There is no ignorance involved, just a different value system. I don't play games for money. Yes, if you play bridge for money, that too would be a swindle, even if everyone is playing fair, and further, I have played cards where no money was involved and still people either didn't play fair or were suspected of not playing fair. However, it only becomes a scam when it is done on a large scale.
