To answer your questions..

1. Everyone above 18 is welcome to join as members of the Singapore Poker Federation, (Registered Society T09SS0057-F) regardless of nationality or religion. The Poker Federation is a non-profit organization, like any other registered society or Association, such as Golf Association..etc, but cater for the poker community here. As mentioned in the post here, our objective is to provide a platform for poker aficionados, to meet, get to know fellow players and for poker players to contribute to society, to enhance the image of poker players, as often seen by many, as gamblers. The Singapore Poker Federation is inspired by PokerGives.org in the USA, and we work closely with them. We also pledge to donate part of our fund raised from fund-rising efforts for our future events.

2. Cash game or meaning Gambling is strictly prohibited at the Federation or anywhere in Singapore. From time to time, we will organise tournaments, such as the proposed Singapore Poker league to select the 'Team Singapore', we have seek approval from the local authorities.

Who are the operators/committee members behind this Organisation?

Anyone can register a Non profit organisation but it does not mean its activities will be legal.

For the longest time, Hong Kong Poker Club was seen as legal, till one fine day...ALL UP LORRY!

Hi kr176,

Hongkong Poker Club was never legal from day 1, many probably think it is as legal.

Please note that the soft-opening of the Poker Federation is a private event open strictly for its members. To reiterate, the Federation is a legally registered approved society unlike the HKPC. and is governed by its consitution. Alike other clubs and Associations in Singapore, if the activities is not legal, and is voliating the law, the authorities and law enforcers will step in. For details of the Federation, pls contact the Federation or feel free to conduct a search at ROS.

Thanks,

Best Regards,
Poker Federation of Singapore

Attention All: Please do not get the wrong idea that the Singapore Poker Federation is a Poker room, or similar to HKPC. No we are not! The Singapore Poker Federation is just like any other associations or sport clubhouses registered as a non-profit organization, where we from time time do fund rising event or carry out activities for our members.

For Poker rooms, kindly contact our IRs. Thank you
