French Legislate To Open Gambling Market, Allow Fold Buttons

News from the land of garlic-munching surrender-monkeys today, dear Melted Felt readers, as the French government legislate for a menage-a-trois of online poker, french players and high as fuck taxes in a bid to keep their ever road block ready union chiefs fully paid.

Yes, while those good people still in possession of mouse-fingers after Agincourt click away illegally, the government are coming into line with the EU, and filling their boots with some tax revenues at the same time.

But, unreported in certain - shall we say shallow - publications the piece of legislation in question also includes a clause which could revolutionise the way online poker is played by the citizens of France. Yes, dear Melted Felt readers, later this year could see the French able to fold a hand after the flop... an ability strictly prohibited at the moment regardless of their holding, the betting and indeed the texture of the flop itself.

We understand the French law dating back to Louis the 16th mandating that ace-rag be raised from any position was considered too ingrained in the national psyche to legislate against on this occasion.

Stay tuned dear readers, we'll bring you the latest just as soon as the stripey-topped onion seller cycles over to let us know...
