    The location of the Sports Book at Resorts World Catskills is already set aside.

    It will be in the sports bar in the back of the casino.

    The place is enormous, has 50 really large HDTVs all over, a big center bar, and very little of the available space is currently being used.

    It was designed to house the Sports Book. They can move all the betting equipment in very quickly.

    I think there are a few NY legislative hurdles to jump, but the first bet on a sporting event should occur sometime this summer.

    Hopefully the US will soon catch up with the rest of the world and allow online poker and other forms of online gambling.

    Given the make up of the current US Supreme Court, the decision was relatively easy to predict. The only question in my mind was whether it was going to be a 6-3 or 5-4 vote. You owe me a beer, tom p.

    Back in the day I used to play thousands of hands online. I have seen too many things happen I question. In the game I lost any faith the hands are dealt randomly. Too many times see three players beat by someone drawing just the perfect three cards over the turn or the street. As a example...
    Some people apparently do win. so.....

    We had a few PM exchanges about this case a few months before tom p decided to join a more "enlightened" crowd hanging around the great craps table in the sky. Basically, my position was (and is) virtually all SCOTUS cases (excluding original jurisdiction cases) are political by definition because the appointment & confirmation process is so intensely political. He disagreed.

    I put together the following table with a brief background of the justices and their vote in Murphy v. NCAA:

    Only Justice Kagan's vote was a real surprise if one considers only who appointed her to the Supreme Court. Justice Breyer voted with the majority except for Part VI-B, which is a bit surprising. All of the other justices voted as expected based upon the ideology of the President who had appointed them to the US Supreme Court.

    I hope betwthelines (tom p) is enjoying this decision by SCOTUS. At some point, if sports betting becomes legalized and available in Minnesota, I might just have to visit a sports book in that state and pick his beloved Tommies (St. Thomas) over rival St. Johns.
