Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

Can one of you legal eagles explain to me what will happen in this scenario:

A poker room operating in what they believe to be a legal manner is sent a cease and desist order by local law enforcement.

The lawyers for the room inform local law enforcement that they are not violating the law and will not comply.

Local law enforcement arrives at the room and orders them to shut down.

What happens next?

That’s only a mile from Kings and Cards.
Plus Lions and Post Oak are maybe 5 minutes away, they’re just going to cannibalize each other,

What is strange (to me) is the total absence of social media/web presence for them. Only thing I found a couple days ago was a job listing on Craigslist.

I don't know if there is a difference between cannibalizing and letting market forces do their thing. First sizable room to drop their rates, offer significant discounts on monthly memberships, etc will win, no?

This is the one I posted about in Post #487. Lots of PLO games and larger nl games will be moving there from Post Oak.

Dont think that POP wont react to there new competition down the street when Prime Opens. It will be the nicest room in town but wont be that easy. Rumors are swirling on the tables about these rooms getting to close and popping up on every corner around there. cant see them all lasting throughout the year!

Might be too late for POP. Players are fed up with their horrible floor people) in particular Tom) and other things like the forced valet etc. The guy that owns Prime already knows a lot of the higher stakes players.

You are correct that most of these rooms won’t make it. Kings & Cards will probably be one of the first as it is already struggling.

Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

Problem is most lf these guys think they can just open and they will be a instant hit. Places like King of Cards rin the place just like a underground poker rooms....there tournament bonus are standard in underground rooms. Prepay for cash and get extra chips who wants to do that anymore. Dealer special for extra chips???? People question how is that even Legal.
