Judge ruled today Poker is more a game of luck than skill, cited Phil Hellmuth
SucksJudge actually said "poker is as American as baseball" but cited a 50 year old case where the state got a conviction against somebody using this old statute that was being contested. The judge said his hands were tied, since there was already precident...
And yet this is legal in Wisconsin:
Go figure. Or maybe buying lottery tickets requires much more skill than I can imagine.
(I know, it's all about tax revenues and connections, but it's still hypocritical IMO.)
What's fascinating is that in some states marijuana may become legal before poker does. Ten years ago you would have gotten like 50-1 odds against that happening anywhere in this country.
Yep, legal weed but the only state where it's specifically outlined as a felony to play poker online. The tribes have their hands deep in the pockets of the law makers up here, they do not like competition for their casinos.
The worst part of it, is that so many tribal casinos are either getting rid of, or never planned to spread any sort of poker game.
I really need to find some tribal blood, and open up a poker room.Case in point, September 1 Tulalip moves their poker room to a poker "area" with only 10 tables....
And a Paulson group buy...just sayin'I really need to find some tribal blood, and open up a poker room.
So many ways I can think of to get a good card room going. Ugh.
