Poker vs. Blackjack

I've read recently an article about the similarity of the games blackjack and poker. They are both card games that combine luck and skill and are played with people around the table. That's where the similarity ends.
The big difference is that blackjack is about an individual playing against the casino while in poker the casino is not part of the game. In poker you must beat other poker playing sitting around the table.
