Tournaments of poker in Mirande: Very close supervision by the police

Not less than 200 poker players of the Toulouse area were foreseen to clash in Mirande. But the tournament was suddenly cancelled by the Regional police crime squad of Toulouse. The preparation went good before this great disappointment. The members of Astarac Gers Poker, a poker club of the city of Mirande, were summoned by the gendarmes of the regional crime squad (SRPJ) not to organize the tournament of poker. According to one of the members of the organizing team, the too important value of the trophy and the risk to create an addiction inside participants were the reason of this interruption. The club of Mirande is not at its first attempt as regards to organization of poker tournament. Previously the club had already set up two other tournaments of poker in the same context.

For the inscription at the event, players should be owners of a valid licence or to discharge the 30 euros semi-annual contribution. The winner will gain a package of a value of 900 euros for a big tournament in Deauville. The finalists gained a television, a trip to Spain, a portable computerÂ… In France tournaments of poker as well as other gambling are prone to many restrictions. The law of July the 12th, 1983 stipulates that the organizer of a tournament of poker with money incurs up to six months of prison closes and a fine of 7,500 euros. But this law does not touch belote, bridge or tarot, which are regarded as plays of address, which is not the case of poker.
