Eighty poker players have been charged with illegal gambling in what Baltimore police said was the largest gambling raid in the city in decades.

The arrests occurred Wednesday night at a club called the Owl's Nest in a refurbished warehouse near Camden Yards. Authorities seized more than $25,000 in cash, poker chips, cards, parts for illegal gambling machines and cases of illegal liquor.

Those charged were playing Texas Hold 'Em -- the variety of poker popularized in recent years in televised tournaments from Las Vegas. Police said 15 other people -- including the club's operators -- could face criminal charges.

[Here's the kicker... - Ed ] The owner of the warehouse told The (Baltimore) Sun she thought the club operators were running a legal business helping to raise money for charity.
