Hi community,

Out of curiosity I decided to make this thread to find out - how many in the community we have left handed players and how many right handed?

I am left handed. And I was reading recently somewhere around the web and noticed that some researches say that roughly 10-12% of population are left handed. I wonder how many of those are here, in the poker community?

If possible, could some moderator add poll to this thread so we can get the exact numbers for each side and percentages?

Regards,

Rihard

I'm righty. But I have heard that being left-handed correlates with intelligence and I have noticed that on our university math lectures like 50% of people take notes with their left hand.

That makes perfect sense. I was reading some facts about being left handed, and it turns out that left handed people are more mathematically developed. Something along the lines.

If you write with right hand, you are considered right handed.

I'm ambidextrous. I can write just as well with both, although I'm slightly better at pool with my right hand so that's my answer.

edit: Re maths, it was my strongest subject in school and university

only left handed people care about this. right handed people don't give a damn because almost everyone else is right handed

Sad but true. I have to agree. But still this should be interesting to investigate.

My natural tendency was to right with my left hand in mirror image.

I can still do it, but i have to concentrate.

I'm sort of ambidextrous, in that I do most things w/ my right hand and left hand equally well, but use my right most since most things are engineered for right-handed people.

I write left-handed, but mouse w/ my right, for example.

Cheers,
