The city of Dallas has revoked poker room permits just months after approving them.  One of the potential victims, the uber popular Texas Card House.  And over 200 employees stand to lose their jobs as a result.

So what is going on exactly?  Nobody really knows.

The local CBS affiliate in Dallas met with some of the 400 to 500 people who play poker here daily.

Steven Gribin is one of them.

“I’m retired and I like playing cards,” said Gribin. “It keeps my head going, it keeps me aware.”

Should the Texas Card House permit be pulled, players will be forced to go back underground.  There are plenty such establishments in the area.  But it would be akin to going from a Holiday Inn Express to a seedy hourly rate motel in the worst part of town.

“We spent about 2-and-a-half years trying to find a location that we could open that the city approved of,” said Texas Card House CEO Ryan Crow.

The letter Crow received claims the reversal is due to his "keeping a gambling place".

What differentiates Crow's establishment from others is that they do not take a cut from each hand.  Instead, players pay $13 an hour to sit at a table, some of the games are even live-streamed.  In fact, the venue broadcasts live streams six days a week.

District 6 City Councilman Omar Narvaez, who represents the neighborhood supports Texas Card House.

“I think it’s unfair that all of the sudden all of these COs (certificates of occupancy) for all these card rooms have suddenly been revoked,” he said. “Unfortunately our city attorney has decided to change the idea of what he believes constitutes card rules according to the law.”

CBS 11 has been unable to determine why the Texas Card House certificates of occupancy have also been revoked.
