South Carolina Supreme Court To Determine If Poker Is Game Of Skill

A South Carolina Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in order to determine whether poker is considered a “game of skill” or “one of luck”.

The justices will be hearing arguments on Tuesday as part of an appeal of a local judge's ruling that Texas Hold'em is a game of skill, not chance.  Circuit Judge Markley Dennis had ruled that poker games in private homes did not violate state gambling laws.  His ruling tossed out convictions of five individuals who had been charged with playing poker in a private home game.
