You Gotta Know When to Hold 'Em

The Glens Falls Post-Star had to pull the plug on it's charity Texas Hold 'Em tournament scheduled for April 1. Why? Because it's illegal.

After advertising the event and receiving dozens of entries from players, the paper thought it might be a good idea to check with the state Racing and Wagering board. Apparently, while some games of chance are allowed for charitable fund raising, games where people bet against one another are forbidden. Does that mean March Madness brackets are OK?
