Maine Charity Poker Bill

, 2005-06-08, by TwoGun

A bill in the U.S. state of Maine would allow for charity-sponsored Texas holdem tournaments. The bill would allow for "high-stakes" poker, meaning a tournament with up to a $100 buy-in. The bill would limit the amount of entrants to 100 people, and 75% of the money raised would be given to charity.

Talk about a rake! The typical amount a regular casino takes is 9-10%.

The bill has already passed the Maine House by a wide margin. It awaits Senate confirmation and approval by the governor.
