I think it would fall under the sport title. I went to dictionary.com site and typed in sport and got 20 meanings for the word. (I am not able to copy and paste)So you can go and check it out. It could be used as a noun, adjective or verb. Falling under all that to me yes Poker is a sport.

According to Princeton University a sport is "an active diversion requiring physical exertion and competition". I don't see much physical exertion in poker although in the Western movies cheating in poker often results in severe physical exertion. I would classify it as a pastime.
