Closure? What closure? The senior center did not get closed. The state gambling commission did not renew the license they had to hold the low stakes games that the seniors played there. The senior center is still open.
Read a real news article. Or better yet, do what I do, read several. Here are three good ones.
It shouldn't take long. They are all pretty brief. But they do quote city council members. They said that the measure was not intended to affect the senior's games, but to prevent commercial gambling. It was intended to stop a private business owner from opening a business that would host card games for profit. One quotes the mayor. One even names the private business owner and quotes him.
What none of these articles, or any T.V. news report that I've seen, mention is online gambling. I would be very interested in reading whatever it is that led you to the understanding that anything some small town with a population of 9,000 does "will also gain sufficient assurance to end all poker sites". Seriously, where did that come from? This is the language barrier kicking in, right?
But you did get one thing right. This did take place in Snohomish. Just out of curiosity, had anyone ever heard of Snohomish before this?
