This tourney is completely voluntary, and if people want to risk $5 to win an ipad, fine. But I will tell you that regardless of what the rules say, it is gambling, by definition. Look at the lockdowned online poker sites, and I really think that if Lack starts making these constant tourneys, and bringing in big bucks, the government might start to take notice. I am sure he is a tiny fish in that regard, but I like this site and would not want it to dissappear.
I understand your concern, jbrettlip. If Lackattack and his legal counsel had concerns that the Conquer Cup was a form of gambling, and not a tournament akin to other sports tournaments or boardgame tournaments with an entry fee for participation and no real 'wagering' of 'stakes,' he wouldn't have risked (no pun intended) any sort of legal predicament.
