Poker and the chess GM

Any experiences playing poker with GM's? I played with Walter Browne in Vegas, he was an average poker player.

Poker and chess GMs

Hi, Scott -- I'll wager the lowest ranked GMs are better at poker than the best poker players are at chess ;-)

Chess GMs

GM Valentin Lukov is an excellent Backgammon player, while Aldo Haik is a great ping-pong player :)

Seems it can go either way..

I have played chess with a world champion poker player. He is an above-average chessplayer, but just a US master.
