Was Legends actually started by the founders of 52 Social?

That seems really f'ed up. There should have put a non-compete clause in the contract but regardless I couldn't see myself supporting such a predatory business. Guess they got what they deserved in Dallas.

Paramount is doing a Black Friday special. Get 24 hours of time for $100. You can only get it on Friday.

This was several weeks ago now and players have been able to get their money out but once you lose that trust with cash outs you are toast. Doubt they will get any of the bigger games back.
If you don't have the cash on hand and need a few days for the bank to process it, that's one thing. But if you literally don't have the $$$ available at all, that's really ****ed up. Not sure which one it was though -- I hope the 2k limit was only for less than a week

Geez sounds like Full tilt poker situation. Using players balance for their own purposes. Yeah I wouldn’t want to have a lot of their chips. $2k cashout??? The hell? Sounds like they have some issues

What if you had a big day and was only visiting from out of town? They’ll mail it to you???!!

It was only for a week but they have lost the business of the higher limit players as once you lose that trust it’s impossible to get it back

i’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Anyone keeping more than a trivial amount of cash in a box at these Texas poker rooms needs their head examined.

I would be surprised if Legends don’t end up taking over the old room again. Legends always had a weird “temporary” feel to it. Not finished anywhere near the same standard as 52 inside.

Some chatter on the “A Better Houston Poker Live” Facebook page today about 88’s doors being closed today - including screenshots of PokerAtlas cash waitlist being offline and jokes about being DOA.

Don’t know whether this is actually true…

This Thursday, 12/9, starting at about 5pm, I'm going to host another low limit Dealer's Choice game at Prime in Houston. Probably 4-8 or 6-12 limits, when it's your turn, you can choose any game they are allowed to deal, except you can't pick holdem. We will play an orbit of your game, then the next player chooses. Great chance to learn these games if they're new to you. And I guarantee you'll have fun. Call the club on Wed or Thu to add your name to the list, (832) 377-7770. Ask for Justin Hammer if the person answering the phone doesn't understand. Also, after the high roller finishes up, we will be moving to the livestream table.

Cheers, Greg Raymer (FossilMan)
