    Good for him, and I hope he wins.
    I can't help but think though that in a free country it wouldn't even matter.

    What happens when the court rules that the outcome of a poker hand is a combination of skill and chance?

    I don't know but as it stands now almost any game involving cards or dice are illegal in SC. This case at least gets the skill part out there and may force some folks to realize the law is outdated and needs to be changed. I really dont want my tax money spent on midnight police raids of kitchen table poker games.
