Will the BCF be declared a criminal enterprise?

According to this article in today's Boston Globe, a state commission studying the daily fantasy sports market (think: DraftKings & FanDuel) is voting on a draft report which declares that "all games played for money are illegal gambling" regardless of whether luck or skill is involved. Seems as though chess tournaments would meet that definition.

While I doubt the state police will be knocking down our doors anytime soon, this might be an issue worth monitoring going forward.
