    Actually the title should read: Poker STILL illegal in your own home in SC

    It's not like this is a new statute, it was enacted in 1802. Something tells me there is more to the story than what we're seeing in the court appeals document.

    Politicians can't collect "political contributions" form games in the home, therefore they must be made illegal.

    A couple of states that I am aware of, the fact the home owner is "raking the pot" for what ever reason makes it a "professional" game and not a "recreational" game. Not admission, no raking=recreational.

    Agreed. They should be focusing on things such as the reason Myrtle Beach, the great family oriented vacation destination is known to anybody in the know as Murder Beach, the heroin/pain killer epidemic, the non-stop felonious crime that's hardly ever reported here due to worries of damaging the tourist income. I could go on and on, but I'm sure you guys get the point.

    Now, don't get me wrong, the gambling houses bring their fair share of crime (assault, murder, etc.) but it's nowhere near what it used to be since you can just cross the border and go to NC and sit down in an "internet cafe" to gamble along with the daily casino boats.

    There's no doubt about it, LE here in SC has a lot more to deal with than "poker houses" and I wish they'd get around to doing so.

    I moved here for the weather (of course) and it's a beautiful area. As much as I love the city, I love being able to go from the middle of nowhere (my property is surrounded by timber company owned land, tobacco/corn/cotton fields) to the beach in less than 30 miles. This place is going to hell and doing so at a rapid pace, but I guess that's no different than anywhere else these days.

    Is playing poker at home really such a criminal act ? Are we really such a threat to society that we need to go to jail for it ?? Really now lets get serious !!! I use to play poker with my friends at home all the time and bet money, we bothered no one, if the person allowed us to use there home and liked a 5% cut on each game thats fine so what!! No problem were not bothering anyone, no one ever new anything nor the neighbors..... You know what the problem is here really ??? The state is NOT getting there share and they have no control of how much money is being made so there all sore about it.... Play with your friends and keep it to yourself..the hell with the politicions...thats what its really all about, not that we are such bad crininals. Its my home i do what i want (in perspectives) its a need to know bases and no one needs to know.... Eddie.

    Just another example of the government knowing what is best for us. Disgusting.
