    High stakes poker pro robbed in parking lot of Doug Polk's The Lodge in Texas

    This is not Doug's fault, but it highlights how dangerous these Texas poker rooms have become. Because they are unregulated, and exist in more of a mini-mall/warehouse setting than a real casino setting, they tend to have less security and are often targets for robberies.

    It appears worse in Houston-area rooms (because Houston is a bigger metro area, and also has higher crime in general), but this robbery shows that even places like Round Rock are susceptible to this.

    To be fair, there have been plenty of parking lot and follow-home incidents at LA cardrooms, but in recent years it seems to be worse in these Texas rooms.

    According to a poster on 2+2, "Yoochan (player) on stream was robbed at gunpoint around 7pm after the Friday $25/50 stream ended. 3 assailants, took $30k from victim, no injuries."

    The guy he refers to as Yoochan is an Asian player named Will Yoochan. You can see him here -- the only Asian guy at the table:




    The robbers were inside the Lodge and watching the game take place, and obviously waited for the stream to be over, and for the players to leave. Apparently The Lodge does offer security guards to walk people to their car, but Yoochan did not use this service.
