When cops have caught all the rapists and robbers, they might have time for this.

It's not a question of whether anyone is "stealing money". It's that a bunch of private citizens get together and pool their money so that according to certain rules, one of them can walk away with it. Pulling a gun on everyone else and running off with the money is certainly a crime. Claiming you won when you cut a corner, not so much.
I donít know, but what is the difference between stealing $3 million from a bank or committing fraud and stealing $3 million from a bank account or $3 million from a fishing tournament?
