Russian prohibition gives benefit to poker?

 July 3, 2009, 7:56 am (8 years ago)
The draconian Russian prohibition on gambling in key cities which was conducted this week has tossed a remarkable irregularity in Russia regulation into sharp focus, reports The Telegraph newspaper.
The reports states that a log of Russian operators are taking into consideration the re-fashioning themselves into poker clubs under a peculiarity of Russian regulation that legitimately distinguishes poker as a sport rather than a game of chance.

It is unidentified for how long the Russian government is going to give this legal escape to be there, but if pursued it could save some of the expected 400,000 jobs that operators claim the gambling prohibition is going to impose as a loss on the nationwide financial system.
