New York Judge Ruling Poker as a Game of Skill

A New York Judge rules that Poker is a game of skill before he dismissed a federal indictment yesterday against a man for contravening the Illegal Gambling Business Act (IGBA).

This is what iGaming Business reported about the Judge's ruling...

Quote:
Judge Jack Weinstein of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York yesterday dismissed a federal criminal indictment against a man accused of operating a poker club in contravention of the Illegal Gambling Business Act.
The Executive Director of the Poker Players Alliance, John Pappas, had this to say about the Judge's ruling...

Quote:
Today’s federal court ruling is a major victory for the game of poker and the millions of Americans who enjoy playing it. Judge Weinstein’s thoughtful decision recognizes what we have consistently argued for years: poker is not a crime, it is a game of skill.
Read about yesterday's ruling at iGaming Business, and the rest of what John Pappas had to say.

I will concur with John Pappas 100% that poker is a game of skill.

The IGBA may state that Poker is a gambling game, but it does not state that poker is a game of skill (not a game of chance).
