French Court Denies Rick Salomon's Claim to $2.8M Poker Debt, Rules Poker as Game of Chance  0   
What an impressive sum this sheik spent, in the Aria Resort and Casino. He is a man who does not look at money ( in some cases ) but from my point of view: he must to pay these dollars for the professional poker player Rick Salomon. I hope in the end the American lawyer to win.

This is something incredible! The court makes its decision based on the law of 1804. Probably the Sheikh had very good lawyers. This is a large sum of money and there will probably be appeals
Let's see how it ends!

Lesson learned here is never gamble on 'promises' - most of the time the people loosing in situations like this one would never pay out the sum they owe.

bowie1984 you're right! There is no need to hope for the honesty of people in such matters, and probably not reasonably. It's very big money. And how do gaming establishments allow such ?!

Shock I do not know the full story so i do not want to say anything bad about either side. But there is skill alone in training your body to be able to sit at a poker table and eat healthy and be active when you are not playing.

Not to mention the mathematics. The skill involved in reading opponents.

I recall someone on his website that i frequent who reminds us that all of LIFE is rigged haha. I dont know. It sure seems like it most of the time.

This law must be changed and the players will no longer play on promises. Casinos accept these bets and they must to force these losers to pay. I say about this sheik, he is not a man of honor and if Rick Solomon lost, the sheikh wanted to receive the money. This is wrong for gamblers without dignity.
