N. Idaho Tribe Says Poker is Like Golf

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Coeur d’Alene Tribe is arguing that Texas Hold Em poker is no different than golf under Idaho law. In its response to a lawsuit from the state, the tribe says poker is a game of skill in which players can pay fees to enter tournaments and win prizes based on how well they do. The Spokesman-Review reported Tuesday that the state of Idaho sued the Coeur d’Alene Tribe in federal court on May 2, after the tribe opened a poker room at its casino near Worley. The state contends that poker is illegal in Idaho, prohibited both by the state Constitution and law. But the tribe says Texas Hold Em tournament play is legal, and is widely played in Idaho.
