Poker – Skill or chance

Hi Grit

Knowing how hot the subject of Poker is over there, I thought you would like to know that it is coming under legal scrutiny here as well. The history is that for games of chance in the UK you need to have a gaming licence, irrespective of whether you are a business or a club. Well, one gentleman has been taken to court because he ran a poker school without such a licence. However, he claims that Poker is a game of skill. The jury are now deciding the matter.

If the man loses it is going to have a serious impact on all the pubs and clubs that allow poker schools.
