Busted flush UPDATE

Prosecutor Larry Jegley issued fair warning. He said there was no way the National Poker Challenge could operate a game room legally in Little Rock. Ch. 11 reports that cops raided the WLR operation last night and made five arrests. Just because you can play poker for money at Oaklawn and Southland doesn't mean you can play poker for points -- and other considerations -- if you've paid for league memership. Or so Little Rock authorities are prepared to argue.

PS -- As a reader has noted, the poker league played with real cards, not on a machine as pictured here. The machine represents a legal activity in Arkansas -- poker gambling at Oaklawn and Southland -- not the allegedly illegal activity of card playing for points at the poker challenge club. 

UPDATE: LRPD news release on the jump.
