    It was fun and I learnt how to play the game that much better and I met some new friends.

    Break out the orange crates

    I might still need a few chairs. I have six good chairs and we might still have upto ten or eleven people with my friends I invited (probably more like a total of eight with Tgiving). Can anyone bring four or five folding chairs with them, just in case it's packed?

    P.S.- I forgot to mention before there will be one optional rebuy. So if you bust out early you can buy another $2000 in chips for $20 if you want.

    Julie says that sounded too snooty. We forgot it was thanksgiving.

  • Brad M.

    Julie and I must decline to attend as we have other plans which were booked previously. We apologize for the inconvienience.

    I would like to attend but I don't drive and was wondering if I can carpool with someone going. I live near commonwealth stadium. As well I have a poker set with 500 chips; 1's, 10's, 25's and 100's I think.

    Christian Akacro will be hosting the poker night session this Saturday, feel free to drop by anytime after 4:30pm game will start at 5:30pm. Julie if you could pack all the chairs and hope we only need a few of them that would be great (I might have two to three friends coming). The only other thing we need is a set of poker chips.

    As this is our first game I think we should start out light. So there will be a $20 buy-in for which you will get a set amount of chips for, probably $2000 in chips. The blinds will start low and increase every half hour, see blind schedule at bottom. There will be a short break every now and then to let people stretch their legs and whatnot.

    This will be a BYOB, BYOS, the B stands for booze and the S stands for snacks. Smoking is allowed in my home and barring some severe allergy will be allowed at the table. If you have any questions please reply to this comment and I'll try to answer.

    75/150

    Looks like the tentative date will be Saturday Oct. 6th. at my place in St Albert. I'll get UncleKarl to adjust the date and location when I'm confirmed for that date.

    September 26, 2012

  • Julie

    St Albert works for us and we have up to six folding chairs we could bring

      September 25, 2012

  • Christian A.

    But not a ring game, tourney style please.

    September 1, 2012

    • UncleKarl

      Wow $2000, you must be rich......

      September 1, 2012

    • Christian A.

      No no no, you pay $20 in buy-in and everyone gets $2000 in chips. The blinds start at something like 10/20 and then usually double at every blind increase.

    Are there any more details? Specific type of poker? Stakes?

    September 1, 2012

    • Christian A.

      My preference is for Hold'em and preferably on a Sunday or Monday.

      September 1, 2012

    • UncleKarl
