Litigation is NOT the first step for good attorneys but rather comes only after negotiations have failed and, often, just prior to the Statute of Limitations having run. This is especially true where you will see a criminal prosecution for the felony offenses associated with the shooting...

And, ironically, you can bet that your idiot friends with SIGH would wind up filing an amicus on behalf of the Defendants...they know that is likely the ONLY way they would get their desired day in court...

Further, with the assertion that the security guard was not actually an employee of the room but rather was contracted security, there is an absolute uphill battle as it relates to assessing liability to the owner/operators of the card room.

I'm pretty sure a lawsuit can be brought up against the security company "Champion Security.".

A good personal injury attorney is going to sue everyone...the security company, the owners of the security company, Texas Card House, the owners of Texas Card House, the property management company, the property owner, any insurance companies...anyone and everyone they can find to attach.

Nobody is disputing that possibility...but HTPG seems to think that everything rests with the owner/operator of the room. He seems to have no clue about the actual practice of law, just that he is now shifting that ignorance into the civil realm after having previously shown an astonishing lack of knowledge about criminal practice in Texas...

This is a really sad state of affairs for all

Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

Corpus Christi report - there are three current membership modelrooms in Corpus.

1. The Poker Gods - looks like very low stakes place spreading small buy in tourneys and 1/2 nl with $40 minimum buy in. Link to their FB - https://www.facebook.com/ThePokerGodsCC/

2. Grinderz Social Club - their FB is pretty active with game posts but I tried to call them twice last night at both numbers and got vm - here is a link to their FB - https://www.facebook.com/Grinderz-So...?fref=mentions

3.pokerKing Card House - called and they had a 1/2 plo game with a $5 bring in and 2 1/3 nl tables. Played in the plo and it was action city with one player going in every hand and rebuying. Most of the players were pretty bad playing any 4 cards. All the players knew each other and were friendly. Recommend to any plo players passing through Corpus and I booked a nice profit. $10 membership fee and $10 an hour time charge. No tipping of dealer with chips and I was the only player that I saw tip cash during the game. Another player said most tip when they leave (if they cash out with $). - here is a link to their FB - https://www.facebook.com/PokerKingCardHouse/

I honestly thought you and I knew each other - however it is obvious that you don't

I never buy in short - for 1/3 I NEVER buy less than 300 - I normally buy 500-1k if anyone has over 300 or more and if someone is sitting with more than 1k - I probably don't sit down.

Most full time grinders I play with don't like the fact I buy in heavy for I often push hard on sets or pat hands and they know they cant draw out

btw bull - if your only way to make a point is to insult the previous post or to personally attack people - you really are not bringing much to the table in the way of discussion...

Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

San Antonio report - there are at least 5 membership model card rooms in San Antonio. It appears 2 dominate the action. The two on Poker Atlas both didn’t have any tables going last night when I checked(AJ’s and Rounders). Alamo City Card House and SA Card House have the most action.

I went to SA Card House and they were packed. Every table was full(looked like around 15 to 20 tables total).Nl was 1/2 and you can buy up to 75% of the big stack. Sat in this while I waited for a seat in the Big O/Congress and in the 45 minutes I played not one person besides myself raised preflop. They all limped called every hand. Very soft game.

They don’t play PLO but prefer 5 Card Congress which is like PLO/8 with 5 cards. They had 5 tables going and blinds were 5/5. Button straddles were allowed up to $20. Game was great and booked a 4 figure win so worth the trip. Daily fee is only $5 and hour fee is $10 which was very nice compared to Houston rates. Parking lot is big and security looked good too. No food served but there is a bar/restaurant next door that will bring your food over and several other players ordered from a Chinese place that delivered. Place is north of San Antonio off 281 and outer loop.
