    Default Skill Vs. Chance Poker Debate May Be Decided in Colorado Supreme Court

    Poker Players Alliance Issues Request to State's Highest Court

    From the CAP News page:

    August 13, 2009 (CAP Newswire) -- The Poker Players Alliance (PPA), the tireless poker advocacy group behind National Poker Week and many other initiatives in the larger battle to keep the game of poker fully legal and protected by U.S. laws, has asked the Colorado Supreme Court to hear a case that could settle the skill vs. chance argument in that state once and for all.

    The filing is in response to a Colorado district court ruling earlier this month that defined poker as gambling, therefore making that distinction state law.

    "We clearly think this is the wrong interpretation of the law, especially in regard to poker, and the PPA is committed to helping demonstrate to the Colorado Supreme Court the broad academic research that exists showing that poker is indeed a game of skill," PPA executive director John Pappas said in a statement.

    The case all started with an undercover probe by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation last year into a small-stakes game of Texas Hold ‘em that resulted in several arrests. For the full story, check out this article at the Denver Post.
