    Wow. I never thought I would read a legal document that said:

    **A player might have a decent hand, but as Kenny Rogers tells us in “The Gambler”, he or
    she would still have to “know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away and know when to run” to actually be a success.**

  2. J.E.H.

    All this really proves is that the petitioner should have known better than to go into a gun fight with little more than a dull, rusty penknife. I don’t remember much of my law school Latin, but I’m still pretty sure that “pro se” translates into “I lose.”

    If Petitioner had a friggin’ clue, they would have made sure to reference the 1978 bankruptcy court holding that found that poker is a game of skill, not luck (Allyn Jaffrey Shulman mentioned this in an article in CardPlayer sometime in the last year, probably in reference to the UIGEA stuff. I’m too lazy to look for it). Would’ve steered the case in a completely different direction.

    It’s probably not grounds for appeal that the Court took under advisement some article about Gutshot that was on the Beeb’s website, but it sure is tacky. The judge certainly could have at least referenced the Crown’s actual report rather than some URL.
