This is a group to start a regular, social, low stakes poker game in the East Bay. We will rotate locations (hosts) and the games will be dealer's choice for variety and to keep the game light. If the host wants a hold'em event, the host gets a hold'em event.
Each night will be 6-8 players unless the host can accommodate multiple tables. This is an opportunity to meet new folks in the area and to have some fun playing cards. If you're looking to comment on every player's choice of bet and hand, may be best to avoid this game. Buy in will be $20 and you can re-buy in up to $100.
The rules for the evening will be made by the host including the time for last hand, cash out procedures for the evening, etc and those rules will be covered at the beginning of the evening. There will be a strict NO A$$hole rule in effect here and those folks may be asked to leave or not be invited to return.
I'd like to try to have a game at least every 2 weeks (if others want to host more often you are welcome) and I am fine hosting while we get the group together and up to speed. I will provide cards, poker chips and snacks (donations to that cause welcome) and you bring what you enjoy drinking with some to share. No smoking, if the weather is nice and we want to play outdoors once and a while for a cigar night, that's fine but otherwise no smoking. Some games will be weekdays and some weekends, we will try to wrap up weekdays by midnight at the latest. Beginners are welcome and more experienced players please be prepared to have a good time, help others enjoy themselves and improve their play.
