Poker Tournaments - TX Attorney General Says Hold 'Em

Local sports bars can continue to host Texas Hold 'Em tournaments.

Friday, State Attorney General Greg Abbott released his legal opinion on the matter. He says its fine as long as players don't risk any money for a prize and bars don't require players to buy alcohol. If these two guidelines are followed, he says anti-gambling laws will not be violated.
