Virginia Senate Passes Poker “Game of Skill” Bill, Future Unknown

In a highly contentious vote, the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Senate voted to classify poker as a “game of skill.” The future of the Senate bill? That is unknown, but it opens the doors for a plethora of outcomes. The vote in the Senate was as close as you can get. After the polling was complete, the issue garnered the same number of votes for each side, 19-19, meaning that Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam’s vote was necessary to break the tie. His “aye” vote for passage cleared the way for the bill to now be considered by the Virginia House of Delegates. The Senate bill, S1400, was originally introduced by Senator Louise Lucas, who was sure that the bill would get out of the Senate chambers. “I had the law on my side,” Lucas commented before the hearing in the Senate committee that would end up passing. This was the third

Dutch Court of Appeal Reverses Poker “Skill Game” Ruling Two Years Later

A ridiculously trivial legal case hit another milestone last week as the Amsterdam Court of Appeal ruled against two café owners who were arrested back in 2007 (yes, we’re going back almost a decade) for running a €10 re-buy poker tournament at their establishment. Richard Blaas and Rene Kurver owned the Amsterdam’s Café de Viersprong Bussum and, as stated above, ran a modest poker tournament at their business. The tourneys, which were held in 2006, would attract as many as 70 players. Twice courts ruled that the small, private poker tournament did not violate the country’s gambling laws since poker is a game of skill, so it appeared that, as of early in 2014 when the second ruling came down, the two men were clear of any charges.* Prosecutors were oddly persistent, though, and last week, the Amsterdam Court of Appeal reversed the earlier decisions, saying that poker was a

PokerSchool Open Skill League

Does anybody play this on PokerStars ? I played it last month for the first time and came 861st. This month I am comfortably in the top 300 !! WOW ! I must be really good hey ? Nah….. Just register late… fold every hand… wait til you make the last 25% then start shoving chips in late position and hope you catch a decent hand real soon… The only skill in this league is resisting temptation to play premier hands early in the tournament… I was really chuffed to pass the poker school test <second attempt LOL> to join this league but find now that it’s not really a test of poker skill but more a test of discipline which I guess Poker is but this feels like a cheat… I logged in the other day then went shopping, came home 45 mins later, hit some decent hands doubled

Bad players shoving all-in (reducing skill gap)

Does a poor participant shoving all in reduce the talent gap? What I imply by that, is that provided that AK (regarded a robust hand) is only a like a 65/35 favourite against any random two below playing cards (I feel). And also pairs like ninety nine TT JJ QQ KK aren’t THAT sturdy (villain nonetheless has a chance) towards any rag ace. So what I am declaring is, inadequate players can quit much better gamers from out taking part in them by shoving pre flop and leaving it a lot more up to luck than ability. Do you think this is accurate? And if you do, how can we combat it? Poker Community forums
