Moral Issues Related to Gambling
Whether we like to admit it or not,Poker in some ways is related to gambling.
“As much as we'd like to separate poker from gambling, poker played for money is gambling.”- Daniel Negreanu.
“‘Gambling is an addictive behavior, make no mistake about it. It has all the properties of a psychoactive substance. It changes the neurochemistry of the brain.’ In other words, the excitement of the possibility of winning a huge sum of money, with minimal investment, has a narcotic-like effect on the brain — that calls for greater and greater risks, in the hope of that ‘big’ win.” -Dr. Howard J. Shaffer, of the Harvard Medical School Division on Addictions.
But the question is,when would you consider this as a “moral” problem?
