Sadly there are game runners and other people who are very jealous of what we have created. They will say anything, post nonsense, and try their very best to tarnish the reputation of our club to keep players from going. There are even ridiculous web sites up and running that claim to be "fighting the good fight" to stop all "legal" poker rooms. (Funny how they do nothing to warn the public about the UG rooms)

We have simply given poker players one more option for a place to play. Some will choose to stay in the under ground scene, some will choose to make the road trip out of state, and some will choose to stop by and check out the Post Oak Poker Club. I guarantee you won't be able to find anything like it anywhere nearby.

If you have questions or something you would like to clear up about our room and what is going on behind the scenes I would be happy to answer questions. You can email me directly at Bill@ihostpoker.com

Thanks for stopping by and clearing this up..

As I have said several times. I have played at Mint a bunch and the games are very good.

There's not a place within a 500 mile radius of the state of Texas where the games aren't good.

Assuming since we have heard nothing from Poker Rooms of Texas since they went dark, and subsequently Big Texas was told to shut down... That Plano doesn't intend to be poker room friendly.

So far FTN in McKinney seems to be running without local harassment.

Much depends on what the prosecuting office wants to pursue. The game room prosecutions typically see prosecution only against the owner/operator. However, the players are at risk of the Class A misdemeanor. A truly ambitious prosecutor could always try and throw the 'money laundering' Hail Mary, but I am not sure that would fly even in a courtroom occupied by the Baptists on the Brazos (besides, Reyna has his hands full with the Twin Peaks cases).

The more likely outcome would be the players get ushered out without an opportunity to cash in their chips, meaning that they lost whatever was on the table but there would be no charge filed against them...

Can confirm nothing as of yesterday afternoon on the Harris County District Clerk's website, which would include anything filed as a Class B and above. I also ran the civil side of the website and saw nothing under the three principal names that were in the article.

That could be where a place like Post Oak derives the biggest benefit from having gone into a former restaurant location that still has the bar set-up in place and functional along with many of the booths. There ARE things beyond 'gambling' that can occur...like eating and drinking.

Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

Not sure what happened but I just recieved this email from lone star card house in conroe...

"We want to thank every member of LSCH who has come out to play, but unfortunately we will be closing our doors this Saturday the 23rd. Stop by this weekend for your last chance to play some 1-2 no limit Texas Hold’em or in one of our tournaments. We will be looking for another place to relocate to so we will keep everyone updated. We have had a blast."

Nothing "happened". I said this would happen a month ago.

They're moving up to $9/hour at some point in September, at which point I expect the venue will die- they're nice people, but they compound bad managerial decisionmaking with resistance to player opinions. They could still carve a good niche as a "value" place to play if they go to $4-$5/hr, but right now they're going in charging the same rate as venues that outclass them across the board.
McDonald's doesn't stay open by charging $12 for a quarter pounder just because some burger joints do.
