Game and Stakes: No Limit Texas Holdem $0.50/$1 blinds, no rake. $40 to $100 initial buy-in. Min rebuy $20. Max top-up $100. 8 max players. No lending or borrowing money on premises.
RSVPs: Treat your RSVP as a commitment! Don't RSVP speculatively to only cancel when a preferred location or preferred stakes game appears on the calendar.
Meetup Logistics: You must show proof of age (21) to play. I'm located near 92 and Hillsdale in San Mateo. You will receive an email prior to the meetup with the address, directions and my phone number. We will order Roundtable Pizza (About $5 if you want to join in) and break around 7:30 to eat. Bring drinks/dessert to share. There is a Peninsula Poker Beginners Meetup running concurrently in the same location.
Late or frivolous cancellations and no shows ... are subject to being deleted from the RSVP list for future games at my discretion.
Joining / Returning / Breaks: You can't come in on the small blind or button. If you miss blinds you must post or wait. If not in the room by the time action gets to you, your hand will be mucked. (Audibles will be honored.)
Leaving: It is customary to give 30 minutes notice to leave the game unless you bust out.
Flipped cards: If the dealer flips over your first card, you have the option of showing the table and keeping it.
Penalties / Time: Players acting out of turn shall throw one small blind into the pot (dead money). Time may be called by any player on the table after which a 60 second countdown will commence. Expired time means dead hand.
Disputes: If there is a dispute the host will consult the players and make a ruling. If the host is in the hand the players not in the hand will rule by majority after discussion.
