Fairfax Poker Game Is Raided; 2 Charged

How stupid do you have to be to run a raked* poker game in Northern Virginia after Fairfax County has clearly announced its intention to bust all such games?  They raided the Centreville and Reston games, held a press conference talking about how illegal it was, and then made sure the operators each pulled a felony.

* A raked poker game is one in which the operator takes a cut of the winnings.  So for example every hand the operator takes a $1 out of the pot and keeps it for themselves.
