North OC & Long Beach Poker Club Message Board › New club rules!
|Mark E. Mark||
Long Beach, CA
As much as I hate to do this, I feel like it must be done! I try to hold and run a relaxed, fun, social, and competitive game every week but lately I feel like this has been compromised and I have been a little too lax. In an effort to keep this club and poker game the best around and one that everyone wants to play in, I must institute a few new rules.
- No-shows are unacceptable! There are no warnings or second chances! If you sign up for a game and do not come, you will be removed from the group!
- Show up on-time and be ready to play! The game starts promptly at 7:00 and ends promptly at 11:00! PLEASE be respectful to the game, your fellow players, and the host and SHOW UP ON TIME!!!
- Do not sign up for the waiting list if you can not make the game! Seats generally open up during the week and often the day of the game, if you are on the waiting list it is presumed that you are able to play if a spot opens up. If you are moved from the waiting list to the 'Yes' RSVP list and can not make it, it will be considered the same as a no-show! No-shows are unacceptable!
- No cell phones/computers/head phones at the table. In an effort to speed up the pace of the game and encourage social interaction at the table (instead of being occupied and distracted by your phone you will be forced to talk and interact with real people around you!) cell phones/computers/head phones are not allowed at the table. If you must conduct business, please leave the table or stay at home
- There are no '+1' RSVP options. You can only sign up for yourself. If you have a friend who would like to play, have them join the club and sign up.
- I will also be trying to plan out the weekly games for an entire calendar month at a time. I will try to have next month's games scheduled before the last week of the month; however, they will not be open to RSVP until the Monday prior to the game at 10:00 a.m.
- I am attempting to really mix up the game selection to break up the monotony and keep the games fresh and exciting. If you have any ideas/suggestions/comments please let me know!
