Hmmm... Editors may have something to say about that, but on a serious note, the opinions of people who play in venues other than casinos would be just as worthy of inclusion as that of the operators themselves. So by all means, if you go to Gutshot, Palace of Cards or similar, or have a regular pub or club game, it would be well worth including your views.
Why you play there, advantages and disadvantages over casinos, and what you think of current legislation (though I have an inkling about that already!) would all be useful.

Is there a way of getting your email, or mine to you without publishing over the general forum?

Thanks

My view is very simplistic and probably uninformed, but I'll express it regardless:

If gambling is not in itself against the law, why is there even any need for a body to issue licences and permissions?

If a company or individual has a commercial interest in gambling, ie. they operate a card room, or make profit from organising a one-off event, then they should be taxed in the same way that a company is taxed when if profits from selling anything - cheese, for example.

Why is there any necessity for licenses to be issued?
