As reported by the South Carolina Post and Courier Judge Dennis Jr. has clarified his overturning of a gambling conviction for several Texas Holdem poker players. Judge Dennis Jr. clarification states in South Carolina games of skill do not constitute gambling
As a Native and Resident of Charleston myself this is almost scary but exciting . I remember the night these guys were arrested and how it broke in on local live news . These Normal Hard working citizens were simply playing a Texas Holdem game on a evening in there own homes when a bunch of FEDS busted in with black ski masks on . I am sure they were Not thinking they were doing anything wrong ie :, like drinking and driving or robbing anyone and they got humiliated , thrown in jail and a permanent record now . SICK Although this is a small victory The news buzz here is saying that The decision might be appealed '' IF'' Judge Dennis upholds his ruling . They say stay tuned that will take months to hammer out ..
So for now they pack the 2 medium size boats in Myrtle beach that pour out black smoke 5 hours into the inter coastal waterway so that South Carolina Residents can enjoy a Live Texas Holdem Tournament .. Without the fear of Law Enforcement Interference
These tickets are like $ 2.oo ( Imagine That ) to get on the boat they pack you in like sardines but hell , I guess to some it is worth it . I went 2 times will never do it again ! As the passengers were lined up against the bathrooms barfing from sea sickness while there blinds were being eaten @ the tournament tables . I will continue to play online In my own home , and If I see guys in Black SKI Masks coming up my driveway I am tossing the Lap top in the Microwave . If I am caught before then I will see yall at the tables when I make bail ! LOL I am glad there is still
people who are fighting for our rights too even in South Carolina .
