Doesn't it seem odd to anyone that she was going to a card game on the east side with untold thousands of dollars of cash?

Is gambling somehow legal on the east side, but not in Shavano Park where they busted that guy running a poker game out of house?

Uh, I'm just gonna go find a cash machine.....

That crossed my mind, too. Hopefully the police or DPS do something with the info about the east side high-stakes card game.

From nouveau riche to nouveau poor.

Some people just do not know what to do with their money.

They had a recent NPR interview regarding this (click 'LISTEN TO THIS STORY' to hear it all)

Gaming's illegal in Texas. Texans who wants to gamble with their money are free to buy a lottery ticket, place a bet at the horse track or take their money to Vegas/Louisiana/etc. to indulge their preference for cards, slots and dice.

I'm not judging one way or another. I'm just wondering if Yucknitz suddenly made the SAPD aware of a large-scale gambling ring in SA, even though it was inadvertent, I could see a lawyer trying to use that for leniency in the court. Don't know if it would be successful, it may revolve around how much other information he knows about it and what he divulges to the police.

Gambling is a good way to launder money.

Not that Ms. Yuchnitz was here, but gambling on the eastside has been on going since the 40's.

http://www.redberrymansion.com/history.htm

Which brings up the thought of how many people knew that a 12,000 sq.ft. home with a 15 acre lake valued at $3.3 million(appraisal district) ever existed on the east side of SA? But then, I might be hijacking this thread......

Not necessary. You can go gambling in Eagle Pass at Kickapoo. Lots of poker and gaming machines there.
