Poker tournaments in Malaysia?

Postby myProfit » Fri Aug 19, 2011 2:31 pm

I read from the internet that the police arrested 25 people for participating in an illegal poker tournament last year.

I understand it's illegal to gamble at home. Playing cash with poker is probably illegal. But what about organised tournaments?

Pardon my ignorance. I'm just curious.

Poker is just another form of game is it not?

If there can be organised Chess competitions where each participant pays an entry fee and stand to win something in monetary value at the end, why is poker not allowed?

It can be applied to other sports competition as well? Where do you draw the line and who draws the line, i.e. who regulates?

Anyone can shed some light? :)
