Class II games are legal in Alabama.
Thus, poker…lovely, beautiful poker…would be legal in Alabama.
Which is right next to Georgia, were Wicked Chops Poker is.
And this is freaking awesome.
A council member (not sure of what, story isn’t clear) named Eddie Tullis, who is a former tribe chairman for the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, says the tribe, which just signed on with Harrah’s, will build a $120 million gambling facility in Wetumpka, which is just 2 hours and 45 minutes away from Atlanta.
Even better, if these wonderful, giving Indians make poker a Class II game, the tribe WILL MAKE POKER AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY AT ITS ATMORE FACILITY. IE, there could be poker just a 4 hour drive (which we’d be able to make in 3, easy) from Atlanta as early as next month.
If these wonderful savages declare poker as a Class II game, you’re looking at one guy (me, Chops) who will be celebrating Thanksgiving all over again.
Kidding about the savages. Seriously. I love you guys. You rock.
