Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott recently stated that he feels that poker runs are a form of illegal gambling. Poker runs are very popular in Texas, as they are in many states. They are a fun way to raise money for a cause and add some character to a ride around town. Even many police groups in Texas regularly hold poker runs for fundraising purposes. Abbott's opinion stated that the poker run "would violate state gambling laws". Now many groups in Texas will have to eliminate the cards at each stop of their rides.

I wonder what impact this may have on other states. Other Attorney Generals may take note of this ruling and consider the fate of poker runs in their areas. Eliminating poker runs would be unfortunate in any state as they are great opportunities for fundraising.
