A few days ago we published an article about a formula that was created in a Dutch professor who came to say that poker was not a game of chance but of skill, so that the same law could change dramatically.
Little has taken the Minister of Justice to leave the arena to say more or less that teachers and experts can say Mass, while in office he will never be approved legislation that consider poker as a game skill, which can be recognized as such, but that the laws will not change.
Hirsch Ballin, Minister we are talking about, has gone through the lining of studies and analysis of Professor Van der Genugten, professor of mathematical statistics and probability, which has been who has developed the above formula shows that poker is a game of skill rather than chance and thus claimed that the Supreme Court decision of 1998 in which it was stated that poker was a game of chance, was renewed.
The Minister, in reply, said that the game will continue to pursue “illegal” based on a 2007 study which confirmed that poker can be addictive. In this way, and wielding the argument defending what they consider the protection of the player, the poker will remain a monopoly for Holland Casino
, Adding, that seems a waste of time for the Supreme Court just study this proposal and that poker is considered a game of chance in 33 European countries.
It seems that in this, Holland is not going to be the pioneer of the old continent as have many other things. At least you tried, right?
