Alaska’s Poker Guru Leads the crusade for the Legalization of Poker Games
Perry Green is a well-known name in the Poker circuit, in Alaska. He is often referred to as “Alaska’s Poker Guru”. Green has been crusading for a long time, for the legalization of ‘for profit’ poker games in the state. Speaking to the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce, in praise for the game, he said that poker had attained the status of a world-wide sport. He further said that poker would contribute majorly, to Alaska’s economy which was largely dependent on oil. In order to propose a bill for the legalization of poker games, Green is on a signature collection campaign. He has made several efforts to get a bill passed earlier, but has failed. Green backed a bill last year, for the setting up of a state gaming commission, which in turn would have the authority to licence a casino, in Anchorage. Although this bill got passed by the State House, it was not passed by the Senate. Poker777.com reports:
In another initiative this year, Green enlisted Rep. Pete Kott, R-Eagle River, and Sen. John Cowdery, R-Anchorage to back legislation authorizing real money card games such as poker and cribbage. Once again, the House passed the bill, but it then became stalled indefinitely in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
