Black Friday Defendants To Try Poker Skill Argument Again

This story was published more than 10 years ago.

Two online poker payment processors indicted in relation to the U.S. Government's Black Friday case have made a fresh motion to show that poker is a game of skill, not an illegal gambling game of chance.

Electronic payment processors John Campos and Chad Elie will try to present their case that poker is mostly a game of skill in front of a federal jury next month. Internet poker site Legalpokersites.com is reporting that the two men have filed a motion that will allow them to present their side of the case.

Earlier this year Campos and Elie filed a motion to have the federal illegal gambling charges against them thrown out only to have a federal judge deny the motion.
