This research project aims to investigate the social organization of an illicit poker game. Poker has become extremely popular among college students over the last couple of years and there has been a lot of media attention to the growing interest. Poker tournaments are regularly televised, and there are also offshore operations featuring gambling operations where people can play poker online for money. Poker games for money featuring face-to-face participants are exceedingly common as well, with some even operated illegally, yet tolerated by law enforcement, by charitable and youth sports organizations as fund-raisers.
