A poker game among friends is legal as long as only the players profit from it. If you host a game and take a cut from all the players winnings as the "house" it`s illegal.

It`s not illegal, in most places, to have a game of poker for money, as long as the "house" doesn`t take a cut. In other words, if I host a poker party, and everyone pays in $20, but only gets $19 in chips, and I keep the $1, that`s illegal. If everyone pays in $20, and gets $20, and the winners take home their winnings, that`s legal. In most places.

"Why`s he got a kegger cup when there are a dozen fat brandy snifters behind me?"

I think humanity would lose all respect for any man drinking beer out of brandy snifter.

Buck176, Wow they got you fooled huh? It was the republican congress & George W Bush that away your right to play online poker. Your buddy Barney Frank who sadly is retiring has been trying to get it back for you.

@Baelzar, Yeah truth hurts.

Well.. Damn... I guess most of the people in America who work their as#es off, especially any field that puts your life at risk should be rich!!!

Even rich people are allowed to be bored to death. He is just breaking a daily routine playing some poker. There`s nothing immoral in that, it`s his hard earned money and Jordan can do whatever he wants with it.
@CrakrJak> how are you not judging someone by saying he is doing something immoral and sinful(WTF)?

"You misspelled democrat. Republicans want less government. Democrats want more."
Then...Republicans want government to stay out of the way of abortions, gay and polygamous marriage and immigration? I think your analysis is a little simple.

vulture is correct, and who the hell really cares.

I consider gambling morally sinful, but I`m not going to judge him. Besides there are so many places, besides Vegas and Atlantic City, these days where gambling is perfectly legal that it`s rarely ever policed or prosecuted.

As has been mentioned, it`s only illegal if the house takes a cut of the pot. New York State has had numerous cases over the past few years with poker clubs (legal)....

Unless this is in Nevada this surely is illegal. Private cash home poker games are illegal. We live in America. That free puritanical society where what you do with your money to yourself is the governments business. You can thank the republicans for that.

In most states it`s only illegal if the house takes a profit

Looks to be a stack of $10-15k. If you don`t make that in a year, move to the Internet.

1: You don`t know it`s an illegal game. Could just be friendly game between buddies, totally legal.
2: What`d you do? Murdoch someone`s phone and steal the pic?
