I have no idea about this club or what caused the raid. But, "Private Clubs that 'feature poker' " and sell memberships "for the day" are sketch in my view. Its like the "Private Clubs 'featuring an inhouse bar'" in dry towns/counties that sell daily memberships (IE pay an extra 20 bucks to drink at a bar with overpriced drinks in a dry town).

I'm honestly surprised Texas allowed such expansion with minimal crackdown.

That's what you get for running Omaha tournaments instead of Texas Holdem tournaments while in Texas.

God damn it!!! I missed out on a joyous celebratory day by thatttt much.

Most people probably got let go with a fine or whatever. I have a feeling the police would have caught an on-the-run Canadian criminal whale that night. On vacation, LOL. More like, running from the law.
