Cactus Jacks, a local bar in the Ahwatukee area, hosts a weekly Texas Hold Em' Poker Tournament on Sunday nights. Just Steve always attends and likes to bring in new players (he gets an extra $1000 chip for any first time attendees he recruits). It's fun, it's free (no buy in), and you too can get an extra $1000 chip "just" for eating, and another one "just" for being on time. Prizes (gift certificates to the bar for a future date) typically go to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place - dollar amounts change with the total number of people playing each week - the more tables playing the higher the gift certificate.

Just Cards members typically arrive at the bar between 6:15 and 6:30 to order food. Sunday night food specials are a hamburger & side or hot Dog & side for under $5. Typical bar menu selection of food and drink also available.

A second tournament starts at 10:00pm for anyone interested in playing later, or staying and playing twice.

    Fun evening! Nice side crowd showed - 5 tables worth! Everyone was very nice and though I would have played longer (but if you loose all your chips, ya gotta get up), I thoroughly enjoyed my short time at the event. I will play with the group again. Special thanks 'Just Steve' for the tips!!!

    Greetings Michelle,
    It's not really a group, it's anybody can play. All Skill levels. I have seen lots of new people. All are very welcome and it's great place to learn. Come early and I'll walk you through the basics. :)

    Hi Steve,

    I play poker on my iPhone, but am really a beginner and don't play very well. Is this Sunday group open to newer players (I understand the basic rules - I'm just not very good yet....need lots of practice). If a novice isn't a good fit for this game, please let me know and I'll change my RSVP.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
