Abstract: This paper examines one popular form of gambling, poker, in an effort to explain why police efforts to contain gambling were either frustrated or, at best, short-lived. Consequently, in the process of examining this one aspect of the policing of popular culture we can identify some of the tensions inherent in early twentieth century Alberta society.
