Virginia state attorney Earle Mobley says he will begin prosecuting people who run poker operations in Portsmouth, Va., the Virginian-Pilot reports.

Six rooms operate in the city, where Mobley had previously said state gambling laws are "flawed" because they make an exception for games of skill. But according to the Virginian-Pilot story, it appears the proliferation of poker halls in the city has promoted Mobley to get active on the situation.
