Appeal from an order of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York (Jack B.

We hold that the District Court erred in determining that Defendant’s poker business did not fall within the ambit of the Illegal Gambling Business Act (IGBA).
Accordingly, the order of the District Court is REVERSED.
