Alaska on Verge legal poker rooms?

"The Alaska House voted Wednesday to allow poker and other card gambling in public rooms."

The full article can be read HERE

It is an important step in the right direction for us all!!

AND... one of THE most important statements in this article is:

"The bill's sponsor Rep. Pete Kott, R-Eagle River, said people should not associate poker with slot machines, roulette and other forms of gambling.

"It's not truly gambling," said Kott, but rather a "game of skill."

One of the stumbling blocks in most state decision maker's minds and interpretations of the law has CONTINUALLY been 'game of chance'! WE all know that Poker.. especially Texas Holdem, is definately a game that is 80% skill.

IF this bill goes through, it could well be a blueprint for other states to follow....

.... it's a start!
