Membership-Based Poker in Texas

I saw that post and am not convinced those players will actually be there. They were tagged but I see nothing stating they are actually making appearances.

Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

I just got a text for a place near nasa called Chesterfield South
Says no daily fee, no time charge and $50 added to your buy in.
There was a phone # attached but no address. My guess this is a “rake room”.

Anyone have any experience playing there and know if there's any flexibility on that for one night?
Bumping the quoted post, as I merged it into this thread and it ended up a ways up the page.

Next settings are not until next month...expect to see a series of resets as is quite common where a defendant is not in custody.

On the civil suit side, Bayou has a trial date in the docket control order for sometime next May (lots of interim deadline requirements). Nothing since the June Answer by KHC.

In other words, don't expect anything soon unless Kim and company folds and dismisses...

Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

How is Bill Heuer able to open the new place in Spring without repercussion since he is dealing with this money laundering case? Also, I am confused as to how the state can grant the Mayfield club a liquor license but at the same time interpret their business model as illegal. Makes no sense to me.

Makes absolute sense when you recognize that 1) there has been no judicial holding on the legality or illegality of the business model and that 2) the TABC is not issuing a license based upon an approval of the business model.

TABC is tasked with ensuring that the license holder is in compliance with the rules and regulations related to the liquor component of the operations. There are also reasons why the prudent owner seeks a liquor permit more than ninety days before operations formally commence...any sort of violation in the first 90 days of the permit can result in a revocation, and so getting the permit and essentially sitting on it for three months can help in mitigating the potential loss due to stupidity on the part of staff.

Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

What rooms are closest to Galveston? I've found The Vault in Galveston, but looks like they only get a 1/2NL game a couple times a week if they're lucky. I saw Mint is about ~35min away, are there any others that are within 45 minutes?

Also re: Mint, does it get a good number of tables? Does 2/5 or 5/5 run? I've heard the owner(s) are a bit shady, it it well run/nice/safe? Any info much appreciated.

South Houston seldom has games running whereas Mint does. Check Poker Atlas.

You won't have issues cashing out or anything at Mint, but the owner keeps welching on promotions for some reason. The $25k freeroll, for example, was listed in the club as end of July. Now the website says August and getting details about it at all is getting sketchy at best (the info sheets they had in the club have been removed and have not yet been replaced).

SoHo is basically just running an underground game with a $25 rake that people play at for some reason. It is openly advertised on the tables at Mint.

All I can say is...

Their website now says it will be in September. I have my doubts if it will ever happen.
