NO,>-) in fact I believe gambling is illegal in Italy. At least for people who drink beer from Seattle. Buzz off Redhook!

I thought I saw a tournament on TV from Italy a month ago -- looked like a good time. Is everyone here so hostile or is it just swalter518..... Maybe I'll check some of her other posts

Interesting, and coincidental --- that's precisely the angle I was looking for. It seems that most people would agree that it's beneficial to break away for an hour or six each day to do your own thing .... Again, any poker rooms to speak of? Anyone? Anyone?

Hi Redhood.
I live near Rome and even though I am not a gambler ( so I am not much INTO the subject) I can tell you that I have never heard of public places in Rome where you play poker. In Rome there are many bars and especially in the outskirts some of them are gathering places for the same people (usually eldrely ones) who go to the bar to play cards. The most known card games played in these gatherings are SCOPA, SCOPONE, BRISCOLA, TRESETTE. There are also local tournaments. Poker might be also played but only as a "private and local entertainment", let's say so. Gambling is not allowed in Italy unless in casinos (Venice, Sanremo, Campione), but I know that in Venice you can play black jack, roulette, slot machines, and chemin de fer...I dont know about the others...
