Poker Raid Wrap Up

I haven't posted here for quite a while due to a number of different reasons. I have stopped offering my home game to people from the public due to the murky waters regarding legality of poker in South Australia.

If you look back at my previous posts you will see that there was a raid on a major Poker Tournament in South Australia last year. About 100 players were arrested for "unlawful gaming." Some of the players have decided to take their case to court arguing that poker is a game of skill (which it is), while others decided to just accept the charges.

This article says that the charges for anyone pleading guilty will simply be a fine of $50 and no conviction. Read more here.
