SMS Poker Night

  • April 5, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Chris and Sheila's house

It's been way too long time since we've had a poker night!

We’ll be playing dealer’s choice poker.  This means that the dealer picks the game and then explains it to the rest of those at the table.  If there is enough interest, we will get a Texas Hold’em game going also.

If you are new to playing, the others will help walk you through it.  Sheets listing the hierarchy of card hands will be available. 

The bets are between $.05 and a max of $.25, but most bets are usually nickels and dimes.  We ask that you don’t bring pennies.  The games are more about having fun then actually winning and even a “bad” player is rarely out more than a few bucks.

Please bring your own beverages and a snacky item to share.

This event will be held at Chris and Sheila's house in Bloomington near 494 and France Avenue.  Directions and contact information will be emailed to those who respond they are coming closer to the event date (usually 24 to 48 hours in advance).  A note will be added to the event conversation once the information has been sent.

Please note, there are cats and a small dog who reside in the house.  The cats will be contained in a separate room, but the dog will be a part of the festivities.

      Paul, this group is a social group for people of all ages who want to get out & do activities together. Not a singles group, definitely not intimately inclined, lol. I don't know what SLS is.

    I am so glad to see that their are other people who are not avid poker players, or perhaps amateurs like me. I haven't played poker for many years. I do play several other games and feel confident that I catch on easy. Looking forward to this night.

      I'm not a poker player at all, something like Crazy Eight or Slap Jack are more my style, LOL. But I don't mind spending time with friends & losing a couple dollars while doing it :)

    For those of you who questioned the one hour event...that was my bad :) I have updated the details. Basically, we'll go as late as people want to play.

    I don't have a ton of poker experience, and I'm not a very good player, but that can sometimes be an asset. When we don't know what we're doing, we don't always make what experienced players would consider "rational" plays. This can make it harder for them to figure out what we have in our hands and allow us to win the pot.

  • chris

    it is dealers choice, but if there is enough interest we can get a texas hold'em tournament going

    March 9, 2014

  • rosie
