^------ This. They seem really strict farther on the East than anywhere else in terms of Home Cash Games.
There is always a potential for these small home games to become dangerous. I would never invite someone to a home cash game that I didn't personally know for awhile.
In the news the police were cracking down on home games due to gangsters breaking into the homes and robbing the players at gun point. This was last summer I believe (?) I know someone else may have better memory than I do. Maybe if someone had a link to that old article?
