    Request for public comment: Repeal Washington State's Dumb Poker Law

    Hi fellow poker players!

    The Washington State Gambling Commission is holding a public comment on repealing the states current limit of $300 maximum bet for poker.

    In WA there can also only be three raises per round, another dumb rule.

    Send them your comments here to support the repeal:

    Here's the current rule, WAC 230-15-135

    Wagering limits for nonhouse-banked card games.

    Card room licensees must not exceed these wagering limits:
    (1) Poker -
    (a) There must be no more than five betting rounds in any one game; and
    (b) There must be no more than four wagers in any betting round, for example, the initial wager plus three raises; and
    (c) The maximum amount of a single wager must not exceed forty dollars; however, Class F and house-banked card game licensees may offer a single wager not to exceed three hundred dollars;

    Thanks for covering on the podcast!

    I wasn't the one that started the original petition, it but I definitely support it. STEAKS included!

    Hopefully lots of people send in good comments to support the repeal of this dumb poker rule.

    Glad you enjoyed it.

    Thanks for bringing the topic here. Was an interesting thing to visit on radio, and this wasn't known at all within poker.
