Poker player loses it all after day in court

Earning a living from playing poker is illegal, even if online poker games are run outside Denmark, the Supreme Court rules

A 35-year-old unemployed man has been told by the Supreme Court to hand over 194,000 kroner he won playing online poker.

The court ruled that because the man had earned the money over the course of an entire year, and because it was his sole form of income, he had violated laws banning earning a living from gambling.
The court chose, however, to throw out a 5000 kroner fine the man had been given by the Eastern High Court when he was originally convicted in November due to uncertainty about whether online poker was covered by the law.
