I’m struggling to think of a scenario where Doom loses.

I'll say one thing, Doom's facial expressions and tells would be hard to read with that mask.

I would honestly expect Ras to maybe win here. I'm sure in his various centuries he's played poker or other games of chance. Doom doesn't strike me as a guy who's played much poker.

You know, I completely missed that this was poker. This is why I hate Herochatting on my phone.

Doom has some advantages. As HJ says, wearing a mask should hide some tells. Doom is also easily smart enough to count cards no matter how many decks they are using.

But I can see Ra’s being better at bluffing when he has a shit hand.

I hadn't even considered the card counting aspect of it.

Well, this could be tough.   Imagine the Dr. Doom making the mask give false faces as he's playing cards.  😂😂😂

Doom could also do some magic on the deck or his hand.
