Inspired by the last question about TNG ( Who's the best poker player? ), is there enough information on who the best poker player is on DS9?

    @NHL - I thought that trivia were questions from Wiki or IMDB... the answer here wasn't on either based on what I see. – user3885 Dec 24 '11 at 14:18

    I don't think this question has anything to do with Sci Fi or Fantasy. – OghmaOsiris Dec 24 '11 at 19:43

    @OghmaOsiris: DS9 is Sci-Fi, I don't understand your comment. – Reinstate Monica - Goodbye SE Dec 25 '11 at 9:10

    @OghmaOsiris Since the beginning of the site, we've accepted questions that were either about an SFnal aspect of a work or about a non-SFnal aspect of an SF work. The Superman question you refer to was closed as “non-constructive” (because it was essentially asking to read a fictional character's mind with no help from the author), not as off-topic. If you want to start a major shift in the topic of the site, raise the issue on meta first. – user56 Dec 26 '11 at 10:23

I seem to recall that Jadzia Dax was (saw it on some poker article, let me try and find a relevant quote).

UPDATE: found one better - an actual dialogue from DS9 episode "Paradise":

From: http://www.st-minutiae.com/academy/literature329/435.txt

DEEP SPACE: "Paradise" - REV. 12/08/93 - ACT TWO 14-16.


KIRA and DAX at their stations. N.D. Supernumeraries as needed. Kira is picking up a message on her panel.

KIRA : Do you know an Admiral Mitsuya...

DAX : Best poker player in the fleet.
Next to me.

    Thank you... One nitpick...that's quite a claim! Is there anything other than self-boasting to back it up in-Universe? – user3885 Dec 24 '11 at 6:27

    @user3885 We did see her kicking some Ferengi butt in that card game they frequently played at Quark's. – user1027 Dec 24 '11 at 7:05

    The best poker player on DS9 doesn't have to be "in the fleet". – Junuxx Nov 14 '12 at 9:36
  • @Keen: “that card game” — specifically, Tongo. – Paul D. Waite Dec 12 '12 at 13:03
