Gujarat High Court to deliver poker judgement in Nov

The Gujarat High Court is set to deliver its judgement on the legality of poker on November 23, after hearing the concluding arguments from those involved earlier this week.

A single judge bench comprising of Justice Rajesh Shukla then announced that the order will be delivered in November, the results of which is likely to have a significant impact on the future of online and offline poker in India.

Petitioner clubs have already indicated that any adverse ruling in the matter would almost certainly be immediately challenged before a division bench of the High Court.
