Any games that play like poker?

I’ve been playing more poker lately and have been really enjoying learning a bunch about the strategy and reading your opponents. I know there are many MTG players who used to be poker players. Are there any other games that have similar gameplay or stately styles to poker?

Skull has some of that same reading your opponents mechanic.  I don't find it as deep as poker though.  But its much shorter, so that can be better depending on the group.
