Raid at Kovan

Police busted an illegal gambling den and arrested 24 suspects in a five-hour operation which ended yesterday morning.

They raided a condominium unit located at Kovan Road at about 1.30am and seized playing cards, chips and cash amounting to about S$3,640.

Preliminary investigations showed that the gambling den's operator is a 53-year-old man. A 39-year-old man is believed to be the dealer. The remaining suspects, aged between 29 and 79 years old, are believed to be patrons.

Those convicted of operating an illegal gambling den could be fined up to S$50,000 and jailed up to three years. Those found guilty of patronising such a place could be fined up to S$5,000 and/or jailed up to six months. Channel NewsAsia

From the picture, they are most likely playing "Si Ki Pi" and not poker.

They arrested 24 people but specifically mention there's only one dealer. How can it be poker? One dealer for 2-3 tables?
