    Default French court: Poker is a game of skill

    A court in France ruled that poker is a game of skill, not chance, in a case against a Frenchman who was accused of running private poker events without a proper license.

    The ruling exempts the accused from France's illegal gambling laws. The prosecution said they will appeal the ruling.

    From Card Player:

    The defense brought forward numerous experts to demonstrate their claim including a professional poker player, a mathematics professor and even top-ranked chess and bridge players.

    That's a great ruling. But who knows how the appeal will go.
