This week was a very important event for poker and skill games in brazil.
The biggest webinar in the history of the Ministry of Economy discussed the regulation of poker, e-sports and games of skill in Brazil and of course the Brazilian community did not leave anything to be desired, thousands of spectators were present in the virtual debate which, in addition to being extreme importance for the category in Brazil, also demonstrated, once again, the size of the strength and unity of the Brazilian class.
It's no wonder that Brazil has been breaking barriers when it comes to games and that's why today it has the biggest champions and the best players in online poker in the world.
We are much more than a game, we are a huge and united team.
The meeting was attended by the President of the Pan American Poker Confederation (CPPD) and the Brazilian Association of Skill Games (ABJH) Igor Federal Trafane, the president of the Secretariat for Evaluation, Planning, Energy and Lottery (SECAP) and businessman Leo Di Biase , CEO of ESL and founder of BBL, one of the largest E-sports companies in the world and also more than 20k spectators

This post could have easily been put on the news section but it needs something more.

So, there was an online debate - that much is clear. Why was it held?

Are there any problems with how skill games (when money is involved) are viewed in Brazil by the rest of the society?

And when you say "our fight continues", what do you mean by that? What are you trying to achieve (excluding the obvious - the world dominance in poker :icon_king)?

And if skill games are on the other side of this "fight" who is on the other side?

Enlighten us :stupido3:

yes i can try to put it
I also think the title might not be as clear about the content.
But let's get the answers.

Who is on the other side of the fight? we can say that all regulatory powers, including the political class that as we all know, corruption in Brazil is very high.
So, we know that there will be general regulation on this matter, the players and everyone involved are getting ready. One of the fundamental points here is to separate what are s-ports and skill games (poker, backgammon, chess, dominoes...) from those that are games of chance, as they cannot be treated in the same way, as they depend on different factors to get the victory. For a number of reasons, including tax, this is being separated because it is clear that there must be a different treatment.

As for the meaning of the phrase "the fight goes on", it was said by the specialist in E-sports. I used it but it doesn't look too good. Perhaps the headline aimed at the news is more compatible.

Thanks

So. is there a serious pushback against poker online in Brazil? If so which politicians/party are against it?

I would have thought that now several US states have decided to allow online poker, other countries around the world which appear relatively free would either allow it or continue to allow it (as with Brazil).

It's nothing against online poker itself. Here in Brazil, whatever they can use to "extort" they will do it if the necessary steps are not taken.
But I can guarantee you the representatives of the games and the players are very organized to achieve positive results in this situation.
