I think in terms of watching, poker. But in terms of playing, blackjack. Poker is more interesting to watch because there is much more to it than just the cards (eg bluffing, betting, etc.), but because of all those different things that go into poker, it is more difficult to pick up and even that more difficult to master. Meanwhile blackjack is easier to learn and play; even with a few rules as in when is the best time to hit vs. stand, people can do fairly well playing blackjack.

I prefer Blackjack to poker but if I play poker I like Texas hold'em or Omaha hold'em because you have a better choice to what you have and can bet accordingly. besides I win more with those games.

I grew up around families that loved playing cards and poker was the most popular game. I go with Poker.

I think Poker ebbs out Black Jack but it is a tough call. They are both very popular.

We love poker in our family.  We have many games each Sunday.  We each have our own Poker can.

It really depends on the setting.  If your talking about serious betting in a Casino than blackjack is the most popular since the odds of winning are smaller but still favor the house.  Poker is pretty much anybodys game to win but the odds are way up there.  But in general as a friendly card game there are so many variations of poker from stud, draw, etc that I think poker wins all the way around.

Poker. It involves considerably more skill, whereas Blackjack anybody can play.

I like both and am good at both. Our congregation is doing a casino night for New years Eve where all proceeds go to benefit the congregation and I'll be running the blackjack table. So I guess I'll find out which is the fav.
