Poker Night

Poker Nights are currently held twice a month, on the first Wednesday and on the third (or fourth) Thursday.  For clarity, this is a strictly a poker night, not a "cards" night, generally for playing the popular version called Texas Hold'em.

Current house rules to help maintain the friendly and completely low key level of the night are as follows (these may change, but this is the basics of the house rules):

- We don't play for money, just chips.  The evening is meant for fun and entertainment and we want it as open and welcoming as possible for everyone who might be interested in participating.

- There are no minimums for raises other than the amount of the large blind (which is usually only a 2 chip blind).  Again, this is about fun and not about being hard core poker night.

- For the sake of the other players and for newer players, it's always a good idea to verbally announce your bet (when raising, checking, or even folding) so that others know what is going on.  Hopefully.

-No cheating. Not that I expect anyone will, but figured I'd add that in just in case... :-)

And, of course, these "rules" can be added and adjusted to at any time, these are mainly guidelines for the best evening of poker play for all involved.

Basically, if you're looking for a relaxing evening of a casual poker night with friends along with some interesting conversation, then this is definitely for you.  If you're looking for a smoke filled hard core poker night with high stakes and heavy gambling, it's probably best to move on.

    Hey Guys, I've been thinking about this for a while, but I'm considering cancelling the "regular" poker games as they just have been one more thing to drain my schedule and my initial intent was to start them up and hopefully have someone else take them over, but that hasn't happened. For the moment, I'm keeping this one on the schedule, but will have to see how I'm feeling tonight after I get home from work, so please keep an eye on your email for potential cancellations.

    If anyone would like to take this over, please let me know and I can set you up as an organizer and you can begin scheduling them whenever you'd like.

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.
