Game of Chance or Skill?

The Dutch need to make their mind up.

It’s not illegal to sleep with a prostitute. It’s not illegal to smoke weed in certain establishments. But it is illegal to play poker anywhere in the Netherlands except the state-owned Holland Casino.

That news came out of an Amsterdam Court of Appeal after they overturned a decision made in 2014 that said poker was a game of skill, this time taking the stance that it’s a game of chance.

The three people involved in organizing poker tournaments in Amsterdam’s Cafe de Viersprong Bussum were handed suspended fines due to the amount of time which had elapsed since the arrests were made which was close to a decade ago.

From the Netherlands to Lithuania, and TonyBet Poker became the first online poker room to pick up a brand shiny new license to operate ‘legally’ in the native country of their owner Tony G. They are the fifth name to be drawn into the ‘legal poker room’ list. The ‘illegal list’ contains 85 names.

A game of skill is a game where the outcome is determined mainly by mental or physical skill, rather than by chance. A game of skill generally has an element of chance, but skill plays a greater role in determining the outcome. And the Dutch are crazy. :1orglaugh

Online skill-based games are online games in which the outcome of the game is determined by the player's physical skill (like fast reaction or dexterity) or mental skill (logic abilities, strategic thinking, trivia knowledge).

Poker is more a game of skill than a game of chance, so game operators should not be prosecuted under the federal law the prohibits running an illegal gambling business.

Bulls eye mike you hit the spot. I don't know if they are crazy or not but playing poker uses metal skills. You cannot win poker if your not mentally skilled enough to play and how come it is a game of chance when your the one need to make the right move to win it. A game of chance would be lottery and slot not poker.
