Pub-Club Poker Gambling Prohibitions

Ok, which means you go to your neighborhood pub go to the bar order your chosen tipple and take a seat facing the TV that is currently showing live horse racing.

You change to see who else is there before settling down to possess 5 mins with the newspaper,
On exploring you notice four men in the corner of the area with more than £40 on the pool table since they are playing for £10 a man per frame

In the opposite corner, you see four similar-looking men sat around a bit of green cloth in what appears like connect4 coins facing them, and on the ledge under the table you notice a glass with the exact same £40 in it.

You stroll to begin to see the four men playing cards whilst the pool does not interest you and you are not very good at it and they should be good since they are wagering £10 each.

You ask to pull up a chair at the card table and watch for approximately 5-10 minutes before asking to join as "This looks easy it's all luck not like the pool where you need to manage to play" ;.

Within 5 minutes of sitting down, you are already reaching into your pocket to obtain out another £5 as you have already been fleeced from the first initial buy-in. "Ah that's OK though that bloke just got lucky on me she must have experienced good cards to bet that much all of the time"

But did he?? Or was he utilizing the same form of skill that has been needed by the pool players to win their money?

This is actually the underlying question isn't it?

I have already been playing poker now in league's casino's and home games for over 4 years and the amount of individuals who don't play or understand poker have uttered the immortal words "I really could beat you at poker it's easy its about who has the most effective cards" is unbelievable.

In my opinion they are the exact same individuals who write the laws on Public House / Private member Club Poker Gambling restrictions.
£5 in 24 hours per player with no more than £100 spend for Pub's & £10 in 24 hours with no more than £250 spend for private members clubs, exactly what a joke

If you had been playing pool, bingo, the tote or on usually the one arm bandit you can wager the full weeks wages in under an hour, but if you want to use your whit your skill and your ability to play poker against other like minded people until you visit a casino, every time you open the cards and place more than your £5 or £10 up for grabs you are immediately breaking the law.

It always gets mentioned but I'll repeat it for the sake of this informative article "The reason we always see the exact same faces at the final tables" Daniel Negranu has just proven this with his second final table at the WSOPE in 2 years and the exact same with 2008 WSOP runner up Ivan Demidov reaching the final table of the WSOP & WSOPE in the room of a few months, Dennis Phillips last years final table appearance at the WSOP and a good deep run only at that years event. This type of person not lucky yes they've had to catch a couple of lucky cards here and there and win a couple of coin flips on the way but they're skilful at what they do and keep doing so well through there knowledge and understanding of the game not by pure luck.

I believe that the us government really need to look at this and as long as the games are run fairly and league nights are run honestly and openly then poker ought to be treated as just around a game of skill as any other sport or game. And the restrictions ought to be raised to allow a better standard of play through the entire poker playing community without having to break the lender or the law.

What about our MPs taking a look at raising the stakes not to silly amounts but to a fair price where players will take it much more serious and an increased standard of play will soon be reached across the way.

The amount of individuals who prosper at pub leagues however completely bust out when planning to the casino is due to the massive gulf in the standard of play.

We must look at getting the Games raised to a min on £20 per 24 hours with a max spend of £500 for pubs and £35 and a max spend of £750 for private members clubs.
