South Carolina judge says poker a skill game

October 6 2009


The Poker Players Alliance, the leading USA poker support group with more than one million members across the USA, today praised the ruling of a South Carolina court that confirmed that poker is a game of skill, and there for should not be considered gaming under U.S. law.

"Poker is not a crime in South Carolina or anywhere else, and we are grateful to the court for compiling the overwhelming evidence that proves this case and protects the rights of players," stated John PaPoker Players Alliances, executive director of the Poker Players Alliance. "This judgment is fully consistent with the declarations of other judges and juries across the country that Texas Hold'em is clearly a game of predominant skill and adults who play should not be criminalized."

5 people had been sentenced of illegal USA gambling. The trial court established that poker is a game of skill, but left it to a higher court to determine if state gambling laws were excessively ill defined. The higher court consented and overturned the sentences. In addition to supporting that the law was unduly ill defined the court held the use of the pre-eminence test, citing the "overwhelming" affirmation that skill commands chance.

"All poker players are well aware that the game is based on making the correct, informed decisions, not just mere chance, and games of predominant skill should not be classified in the same league as slot machines or lotteries," stated John Ridgeway, South Carolina State Director of the Poker Players Alliance. "We're very pleased that the judge considered the overwhelming evidence and came to the same conclusion. This is a well deserved legal victory for the players, the American poker game, and for common sense under the law."

Poker Players Alliance's Legal proceedings Support Network has been participating in a string of legal successes by providing expert's testimonies, drawing up disputes for trial, and filing briefs with the judicial system.

Good Luck
