Please explain

poker/gambling is illegal in Israel. Its also not considered a positive practice in Judaism according to some its prohibited. Its also a liability to any forum host that allows illegal behavior on their site to be advertised.

Unfortunately a major issue amongst yeshiva bochrim. Attended a Gamblers Anonymous meeting in Jerusalem and there were mainly bochrim there. This meeting is only about 4 years old and there were approximately 30 young people there. Parents dont realize this is going on in dirahs and other seemingly innocuous locations.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

I know many people who were involved in these games in Israel, and firsthand situations of individuals who got in SERIOUS trouble as a result of gambling while in Yeshiva in Israel. Thankfully it's not "widespread" and my understanding is that it is more the exception than the rule (unlike other issues like drinking, etc. where it's more prevalent), but a big problem nonetheless.

Tell that to 20 year olds with daddy funding everything their heart desires so that they get the full "learning" experience. We know you can do it. I have seen the others that cannot. I have a friend who was the mark every time and didnt know it. He got messed up with some bad people. He started cheating and they caught him. Aces in his socks. etc etc. Theyre naive kids who get roped in.

I understand your view on gambling. What should we do ban gambling since some can't control themselves?

Who said to ban it? (Btw poker is prohibited in Israel...)

How about just discouraging boys from playing while studying abroad, as it is a) illegal there, and b) not uncommon  for people in that situation to get in over their head.
