Bring back poker

I played at Pop's the night before the legislature shut it down. It was fun and safe. The closure was a poor decision with no good rationale backing it.  

We still have VA roots, with kids in school and friends and family there.  I would love to play poker in Virginia again, and it would give me a big reason to stay longer and spend more money in the state.

I hope the legislature will see fit to return to the sanity of the earlier regulations on charity poker.
