Seems a little flaky too in that they are having a Day 1A(Friday), Day 1B(Saturday) and a day 1C(early Sunday) which is tentative. Buy in is $300 + their fee then they have 1 rebuy and 1 add on. Also have the option of playing multiple flights and surrendering your stack. Not sure I like it. Thoughts?
I love on the North side and I am not a fan of this location....

Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

Huh? Why would they open in Plano? That's where all the other rooms got shut down.

Maybe they found someone willing to see the matter through to a jury docket...

Law enforcement is not the final arbiter of what is or is not a violation of the law. There are plenty of dismissals in each of the 254 Counties in the State every week on various offenses because there was no probable cause to believe a violation of the law had, in fact, taken place.

As Clive pointed out, this is one to watch:
https://www.wilsoncountynews.com/new...er_parlor.html

They used the same business model as all the Houston clubs. 47.03, 47.04 and 47.06 violations for the gamerunners. 47.02 violations for the players. Perhaps we'll get a trial out of one of these folks.
