The state Racing Commission has announced a public hearing at 11 a.m. June 29 at 1515 W. 7th on proposed rules to govern the, heh heh, "games of skill" soon to be rolled out at Oaklawn and Southland.

You can go to the Commission website and find a draft of the proposed rules. When we reviewed them earlier, we didn't find the operative rule for these, heh heh, "games of skill." It's very simple: House wins. You lose, roughly 10 to 15 cents on every dollar.
