Named in the warrant was one David B. Stern, 31, of Thomaston.  He was known by the name "The Club Hou$e" and would regularly promote the games through the Facebook group, CT Valley Poker Players.  Recent posts from "The Club Hou$e" and any mention of the arrest do not appear on the group wall.

The business was run from a curtained store front.

Stern is charged with illegal gambling, possession of a gambling device and gambling premises as a nuisance. He was released without having to post bail and is scheduled to appear Sept. 12 in state Superior Court in New Britain, police said.
