denmark.jpgOn December 18th, 2007, Denmark’s second highest court, the Landsretten, ruled that private clubs could not organize poker tournaments because such actions would break Denmark’s current laws against gambling. Private clubs had been finding it profitable to organize poker tournaments for their poker playing patrons, but were forced to suspend such activities in the wake of the Landsretten’s ruling. However, poker players have been given a large modicum of hope as the Supreme Cour has agreed to hear the appeal brought forth by Frederik Hostrup and the Danish Poker Federation.

Frederik Hostrup had this to say about the decision: “I am certain we will reach another result than the one we received in the Landsretten. This is a good day for Danish poker. It can make a big difference for everyone who loves poker.”

The Supreme Court’s announcement is good news for poker players as the Supreme Court will typically only take on cases where they already disagree with the decision of the Landsretten. With the Supreme Court agreeing to hear the case private clubs are allowed to organize poker at the very least until the Supreme Court makes a ruling, as under Danish law once the Supreme Court announces they will hear a case the law reverts to what it was before the ruling being challenged was made.
