Judgment Days

A British court is scheduled to rule this week on whether poker is a game of skill or chance. The case involves charges against Derek Kelly and the poker club run by our good friends at Gutshot. Perhaps not surprisingly, poker rooms are booming around London, and this case may determine if they’ll continue to do so.

Meanwhile, in Dallas, at least a few people busted in last summer’s Aces raid go to court today. Are you telling me it’s not a worldwide fight to play a simple little game? Has been this way for more than 30 years. Only difference is that now billions and billions of dollars are in play.

Link-thanks go to Raye, who is still waiting for a trial, nearly two years after his joint got whacked.
