How can I get around the gaming laws in Texas, and start a legal poker room?
I am trying to find how to legally open a poker room in Austin, Texas. I believe if I make a non-profit corporation that runs the poker room and also open a private charity that gets all of my profits I should be able to. Since it does cover all three of he defenses of section 47.04 (1) the gambling occurred in a private place; (2) no person received any economic benefit other than personal winnings; and (3) except for the advantage of skill or luck, the risks of losing and the chances of winning were the same for all participants. I also relise I would have to find a inventive way to pay my employees since I inturpret the law as they can not benifit from working for me also. If you have any insite I would love to hear it.
