THIEF! character, Vince Eli

In case you had any doubts...

It's official: Poker is NOT a game of chance.

A South Carolina judge ruled that Texas Hold 'em is a game of skill. Really? Was it ever in question? Apparently, it's a ruling that could prevent police from arresting poker players.

A Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina judge wrote that there is "overwhelming" evidence the game is one of skill, not chance. South Carolina state law prohibits gambling on games of chance with cards or dice.

And I thought the fact that poker is not a game of chance was already established!?

What's your take on the topic?
