Gambling games go on all the time. IIRC, unless the "House" is taking a percentage of the winnings, it's actually not illegal at all.

Her retail store is appraised for over $800K.
I get the "tackiness" of the big cars sitting in front (put them in the garage at least), but what's wrong with a pool & a tennis court?

And nothing wrong with gambling. I remember playing poker with some college friends at UT with dimes!

Now THAT was fun! Skill and skill only, baby.

With a little research, you can find his address and look at his home through certain web sites. Honestly, I am a bit surprised at its location and the place looks more like a small industrial park than a home. The view from the street isn't much better, but it is hard to distinguish some of the items in front of the house. I might drive by there to get a firsthand view sometime soon but won't publish the address or any pictures in respect to the family that still lives there. However, I will provide a written verification of what I thought I saw in the images online...

Cheers! M2

I was thinking about driving by as well and checking out the neighborhood, but I really have no time for that with my 70-hour work week schedule.

I do love some of the homes on the other side of his, on Callaghan Rd. They really are very beautiful. Sometimes I wished I lived in a grand old home with some San Antonio history as opposed to a Stone Oak cookie-cutter thingie. Sigh.

^^^ Is flashy, feel out of place and it does not fit in that community. With over 6,000 sqft is totally unnecessary and wasteful, expensive to heat, cool and maintain. Big cars sitting in front and all that showy stuff.
I think it is an "in your face" attitude. "LOOK AT ME, LOOK WHAT I HAVE AND YOU DON'T"!

In general, this is true. There is nothing illegal about having a poker game, for money, in your home in Texas. The "house" just cant make any money.
