Fans of Texas Holdem poker can't play the game legally in Oklahoma, according to an attorney general's opinion handed down Thursday.

The opinion, which carries the force of law, will likely slow the growth of popular Texas Holdem poker tournaments common in other states and that have been advertised and conducted by taverns, pubs and other commercial establishments across Oklahoma.

But the opinion also applies to private poker games played for cash or other things of value. Attorney General Drew Edmondson said it is up to individual district attorneys throughout the state to decide whether to prosecute violations.
