This story was published more than 9 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 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.
