West Virginia Poker Tournament Held As Planned
July 21, 2021
Despite much early confusion and conflict, a radio station in West Virginia was ultimately allowed to hold a poker tournament to give away one seat to the 2009 World Series Of Poker Main Event to one of it's many faithful listeners. The station, owned by Virginia Broadcasting Corp., was mired in controversy recently as state officials tried to determine whether or not the station's giveaway violated the absurdly confusing and seemingly contradictory state and federal gambling statues.

Eventually the tournament, which was held for 96 radio call-in winners, was allowed to proceed as scheduled when it was determined that since none of the participants had paid to enter the event, no local laws were being broken.
