David Shick, a high school math teacher in the state of Washington, testified at an online poker hearing that he once made a “supplemental income” from playing online poker, despite it being a felony in his state.
Calling the state law an “absolute joke”, Shick wants to see regulation of the game so more people can play in a safe environment.
Shick went on to say that: “Nobody was being arrested. And so here I am admitting that I’m a Class C felon. If that means I’m going to be arrested, I guess I could be the first one.”
