Sunday was the first day I've seen they had no security guard. Then, people busting out of the tournament were told to wait around while they "figure out the payouts." 30 minutes later the police show up to cite everybody and take the whole prize pool, the whole time, Eliud the tournament director is laughing and smiling thinking the whole thing is funny. I will never ever visit another business owned by the guy that owns this place. If I lived in the basement underneath Watauga Social Lounge, I would still take the 30 minute drive to another card room, every, single, time.
