Poker Is not Gambling. Set it Free
In courts across the country, as well as in the US Senate, there are hard discussions around the issue of gambling legislation. Financial institutions are hard pressed to stop transactions to gambling operators.
And online poker players are deeply affected by all this. Shipping cash to the poker sites is getting harder by the day.
Meanwhile, weâre all asking ourselves, why is poker even a part of this?
When did poker get involved in the discussions on gambling legislation?
Thing is: Poker is not gambling. This fine game has nothing in common with gambling games like roulette or Keno or even blackjack.
Sure, poker is a game that is played for money, most of the time. But that doesnât mean itâs gambling. Not more so than chess or bridge or golf or tennis, other fine games that are often played for money, sometimes huge amounts.
Tennis is not gambling, and poker is not gambling. Please leave these games out of the discussions on gambling law.
