Amateur Poker: Poker clubs endangered

The law in France bans the organization of public poker tournaments since June 2010. Face to this restriction, poker clubs are slowly disappearing in the vast desolation of lovers. Indeed, the majority of young people between 18 and 25 attracted by poker are accustomed to indulge their passion in these clubs. Unfortunately, they will turn to online games as poker clubs close their doors one by one starting with Fripoker Freiburg followed by Swiss Poker Club Vich. Victim of a financial problem, Heavenpoker of Montagny-pres-Yverdon is also on the Brink and expects to make a decisive balance during the month of March.

Poker enthusiasts have then only to opt for online poker. But some are tempted by illegal tournaments. Indeed, poker is played in private now and according to the semi professional player Jean-Philippe Haas, parties are organized every night where big businessmen compete on a table with extremely high stakes. During the month of December 2010, police discovered an underground tournament held in Herisau (AR). Thus, the risk of expansion of gambling pathology is difficult to prevent. Frederick Richter from the Romand Groupement Study of Addictions said that the federal court's decision only accentuates the difficulties of supporting pathological gamblers and prevention research face to gambling pathology.
