Why Cannot Play Poker Legally???

Postby pokerace » Wed Jun 09, 2010 8:18 am

Initialy,RWS have a poker room for 8 tables but not open yet.I heard that they going to ripped off the poker room.Marina Sand never apply for the licence to operate.
In Yishun,in house poker beind raid.
Our Poker community is growing bigger and bigger.No where else to play.
Only to play online,deposit is instant but withdrawal have to wait for 5 to 10 working
day.Not fair for the players.
Can someone here proposed to our authority to have a poker house same as HongKong???
We are all decent people and why cannot play poker LEGALLY???

You can always sell your funds at the Marketplace section, I'm sure there will be people willing to buy.

OP really has a point. When they now allow ppl to blow their money on baccarat and roulette, how come its not allowed to set up a proper safe and controlled place where ppl can play poker? It doesnt make any sense.

Becos there are only 2 licences, and each licence is attached with a few billions dollars price tag. If not, I would have partner MGM or Galaxy Group and started operating my multi-millions Poker Club House at central area.... lol.

RWS and MBS are the only 2 to operate gaming business in Singapore, if the governement allow people or company to set up a "safe and controlled" Poker house. MGM, Crown..... So on, so on casino operator all are willing to invest tens of millions to build a Club house just for Poker.

Do you think Sands and RWS would complain? Even if they don't complain, do You think your hosting place stand a chance to compete with the big boys? Remember, once our Government give one must then give all.

Playing Poker is not illegal in Singapore.. gambling is!

Uncle Bob well said!

I dont think the Hongkong Poker House is actually legal.. HKPH facilitates n provides players with venue to play poker..
the rest is up to the players to take risk themselves with their games..

Necrohavoc,If playing poker without money,they will anyhow play.If you dont understand the theory of poker,why not take a look at the book(theory of poker)author David Sklansky.
Rule No 1,the objective to make money for profit.
If you play (play money),most of them dont put in effort to play.But if you play Real money,you will play a better game.
Can anyone in this forum tell me they play poker on play money only?I think you hardly improve your poker skill and dont have a chance to put your name in the official poker ranking.
Then how to bring glory for Singapore.Most of us in this forum have a strong passion in poker,we should be united.
Winning by writing is no purpose,why not give me your nickname in FTP or PS,see who can win in the poker game.

Kaki Pokerace,

You have to know who you are talking to. If Necrohavoc does not understand poker, i doubt many local player do. If my records is correct, Necro have the highest percentage of hit rate for reaching final table in live tournaments organised in Singapore and Malaysia (open or private) since 2008. More than any of us here including the pros.

i do practise on facebook poker frequently for the last 2 year+ and used to accumulate up to 200 millions+ of chips until being hacked. Infact i played less real money game than play money game(i swear here!), but i think you can still find my name in the whatsoever official ranking.

Player can train and improve their skill by practising with play money, they can learn the art of patient, learn to sense danger and avoid multi-ways confrontation as well as improved reading on "fishes" and "gamblers" when facing facebook player alike in real money game.

Of cos, like what you said, "winning by writing is of no purpose", people here do give me some face and call me Uncle Bob, i am not that active in PS or FTP but do hope to see you in the live circuit one day and bring glory back to Singapore. UB.
