Texas Card House, which operates poker rooms in Austin and Houston, will soon open the first legal card room in Dallas, thanks to finally receiving permission from the City Council. The Dallas Area Poker Players is a private group, some games are in private residences where decent behavior is required, entry to games subject to host approval, membership does not guarantee entrance to all games. You must be at least 21 years old.

After shutting it down slightly more than a year earlier, the Dallas City Council has passed regulations that will allow for the first officially city sanctioned poker room to be opened in the home of the Cowboys, the Mavericks and the Stars. It will join a sister card room that is already in existence in Dallas, but it could only be a temporary situation.

Battle in City Government Works Out

Owner Ryan Crow of the Texas Card House originallyhad petitioned the City Council in January 2019 to be able to open up a pokerroom. Back in a City Council meeting at that time, however, Crow was denied abusiness license, despite all but one property in the strip mall supporting themove. In that Council meeting, Crow’s proposition only garnered eight of thenecessary 12 votes.

There was one caveat to that January vote,however. Crow could appear before the Council again to resubmit the applicationvia a waiver or could wait two years to try again. Crow decided the time wasright to strike on Wednesday, going in front of the Dallas City Council againand resubmitting his application. This time around, the outcome was much moreto Crow’s liking.

First off, Crow was able to get the loneholdout from the last time the proposition was in front of the Council to comeaboard the project. EF Properties switched its stance when it was able to get aclause put in the contract that it would be reviewed in two years. A letterthat acquiesced EF Properties position stated that “a private card house might not fit with the future uses”at the property but, in the meantime, it was allowable.

Dallas pokerplayers will have to wait a bit before the property can be opened in the ValleyView Center, or what is being called the “Midtown” district. Crow states thatit will take about three to four months for the property to be developed. Thiswould put the opening date of the Texas Card House II (another Texas Card Houseproperty exists in another area of Dallas at the Sam Moon Shopping Center) atsome point in May or June.

Lots of Questionson Texas Poker Piggy megaways.

The questionof poker clubs in Texas has been raging for the last few years. Under Texas law,there are no laws against playing poker, but there are strict gambling laws. Someentrepreneurial spirits looked the law over, however, and found some loopholesin the gambling laws.

Dallas Poker Room Raid

Under Texaslaw, to constitute illegal gambling there has to be money taken as a rake or afee from the actual play of the game. The card rooms got around this by takingnothing from the pots but charging a “membership fee” for players to enter thebuilding. Along with some food and non-alcoholic beverages sold by the pokerrooms, the businesses don’t make anything from the actual PLAY of poker on thetables; all the money on the tables goes to the players at the tables, not tothe house.

This loophole led to the expansion of poker across the Lone Star State. Austin became a hotbed of poker “clubs,” alongside San Antonio and Houston, a couple of other major metropolitan areas. These clubs were nearly torpedoed last year when the District Attorney of Houston, Kim Ogg, had Houston law enforcement raid two clubs, the Prime Social Poker Club and Post Oak Poker Club, under the belief that they were laundering money through their operations. Those efforts were killed, however, when it came to light that Ogg’s very own office had given the green light to these operations and, allegedly, one person involved with the DA’s office was writing legislation to get the poker clubs regulated by the city of Houston. That brought Ogg’s case against the card rooms to an abrupt end, with all the charges against the owners of the two rooms dismissed.

The state legislature has been reluctant to step up and examine the gaming laws in the state, leaving it to the county and city officials to decide what actions to take. For the most part (other than the Houston situation), they have decided to let the poker clubs be rather than try to enforce a law with a great deal of gray area. It is significant, however, that with the new regulations in Dallas, the Texas Card House will become the first poker club operation to be allowed by any city officials in the state of Texas. Whether it starts a change in the overall laws remains to be seen.
