Poker norms?

Since corr. poker is so new and innovative, do you think Thib that you can come up with some levels that we could earn poker IM, or poker GM titles?

I think this idea is terrible and over the top.

Good idea

I do not believe this to be silly, in fact, this may be a rather good idea since poker is not really a game of luck.

Poker titles

This is a good idea ! We still need some time to see how ratings evolve but it may be an interesting innovation... To be continued !

Poker is about 90% luck 9% statistics and 1% skill that only occurs otb not internet scenario.

Poker & chance

90% luck ? This is true when you're talking about a certain number of hands, not in all cases of course.. So when you consider several tournaments (norms), so ie. 6 games * 6 tournaments * 600 moves (let's say 300 hands), we're talking about 10,000 hands .. The chancy factor "disappears" when you play 500,000 hands. I do not pretend to explain anything about poker theory, but it is quite clear to me that theorically the possibility of norms is not a totally stupid idea (but it still has to be discussed for sure).
