The folks at Blue fire Poker are offering $1,000,000 to President Obama or any member of the U.S. Congress willing to play a Poker game against any of their poker pros, and the winnings can go to the charity of choice. will put up $1,000,000 against $1 for a chance to play with either President Obama or any member of the U.S. Congress. The legislative debate centers on whether or not Poker is a game of chance or skill, and this debate determines the legality of online gambling, according to legal and legislative experts on the subject. No one in their right mind would turn down this challenge if Poker were a game based on luck, because the odds are so far in their favor ? putting up $1 for a chance to win $1,000,000 for the charity of their choice.

Earlier this year, a Pennsylvania Judge, Thomas James, Jr. ruled that Poker is a game of skill in a court hearing, quoting Mike Caro?s Secrets of Winning Poker, saying ?the money flows from the bad players to the good players.?

The specific terms of the game are to be announced but the format will include an equal number of chips at the start of the game. The length of the game must also be long enough to demonstrate the advantage of skill because Poker prowess and experience demonstrate themselves over time ? in the long-run, the better player wins the game because the player?s skills increase the odds of success.
