Default Poker Home Game and Civic Duty

Quick background. I run a poker game after hours at my office. It is the same game that has been running for better than 9 years.

Last few fridays one of our reg's who is on huge life tilt drank about a dozen beer and decided it was a good idea to drive home. I caught wind of it and had a word with him about it. Two weeks ago, same result. Last Friday, I offered a cab, several guys (sober and zero alcohol in them) offered to drive him home. He drove anyways.

So this Friday I am considering banning him from the game permanently. A seven year reg. I am not going to give second chances, no fucking around. If I say he is done, it means done. For good. I was PISSED AS HELL last week. If I am sending him packing I want to be sure it isn't because of my past history with my wife being hit by a drunk driver. Liability issues aside I feel I have a civic duty to protect the public in this instance because I have absolutely no evidence that he is going to stop. I want no part of that on my conscience.

Because of my potential decision I expect a shit load of backlash from his friends who also come to the game, not least of which is because he also happens to be one of the biggest donators at the game as well.

Thoughts?

PS. Yes I am still alive. Stupidly busy with work. Sorry. I'll be unbusy soon and playing bigger stakes

Is it your company? If no then I would do nothing. I see zero upside and lots of downside (i can go in to details if you want but i think you see the downside). If it is your company LDO shut him down might want to fire him as well.

you are from canada? well you will need to look in to the laws and see if you can get in trouble if he kills some one. if the answer is no i see no reason to break from the status quo.

Sounds to me whether or not you kick him out of the game he's probably going to be doing it anyways. Guys like that won't stop drinking and driving. How long do these games usually last?

I wouldn't let him drive. His friends should pick him up before the game, then there's no need to argue with a drunk guy.

there is no larger issue find out if your liable....do you think if you kick him out he wont be drinking and driving? in fact he may drive further on those nights and you are putting people at greater risk.


so look to see if you can get in trouble if you can kick him out, if you cant have at it......


you could ban alcohol at the office

lol @ no booze at office

Canadian, self employed and my office is walking distance to my house. all but a few of the regs are all walking to the game

odds of banning alcohol about equal to UIGEA being overturned this week.

seriously we have one bad apple. 12 beer over 6-8 hours every week.

then the rest of my statement stands you may cause more harm to innocent people by banning him. so find out if you can get in trouble if he kills some one. if you can ban him, really what choice do you have, if not, do nothing.
