Maryland Poker Club is a group for all Poker Enthusiasts and Poker Home Game Hosts. Typical buy-ins are in the $50 range and include both cash game and tournament formats. As most of our games take place in someone's home, we vet our prospective members, to ensure the comfort of our hosts as they invite persons into their homes that they may have never before met. Please provide your first and last names in your profile. Nick-names are fine if provided with, and not instead of, your real name. Please also have a current picture in your meetup profile. Our vetting process includes a cross-check of other public social media -- most real persons have a consistent presence across Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and/or Google. We may arrange a phone conversation with an organizer to make sure we're on the same page. We reserve the right to request a face-to-face meeting and to decline members who refuse to be vetted.
The upside: once you join, you will find a group of honest poker players and safe, enjoyable games.
Want to Host a game? - we are MORE THAN HAPPY to add members as an event organizer, so that you can host your own game, at anytime! The more hosts available, the better this group will be. Just message an organizer if you would like to host a game. HOST RULES: No rake, no entry-fee collection of any kind, and No minors. Hosts are not to make any money off the job of hosting a game. Requesting an optional contribution to cover cost of providing snacks such as pizza and soda is acceptable.
Code of Conduct - We are a friendly game group. We respect each other, and we win & lose with grace. If you are a guest in someone's home, act like it. If you RSVP yes, please actually attend. If you attend, leave your non-playing friends and family at home. Any host has the right to ask you to leave if your negative behavior warrants that. inappropriate behavior could result in a ban from that and all game locations. Enjoy the action, play your best game, and Don't Be a Jerk!
