Poker night - suitable for absolute beginners and the more advanced.

Not strictly an "extreme" event (unless you go on to develop an extreme gambling habit!), but posting up here as some members have expressed an interest in learning to play poker.

The game will start at 7.30pm and is being run as part of the Live Pub Poker League: Live Pub Poker League - where you can play for free and win some pretty impressive prizes (trips to Vegas etc!)

I will be in Pranj's Bar from 6.45pm to teach the rules of the game to those who have never played before or are a little rusty, and offer some tips and advice. So turn up any time from 6.45pm-ish if you want to learn how to play.

If you already know how to play, then turn up anytime before the game starts at 7.30pm.

At 7.30pm we'll start the game. You can either play for free, or chuck £5 into the pot. Whoever does best out of those who have contributed will take all the money. We may pay top 2 or 3 if enough attending want to play for money.

This game is in a bar, so please buy a drink (don't bring your own!). The bar also serves basic food (pizza or burgers).

    Thanks all for attending. Was an enjoyable game :-) There were a couple of technical issues that I will sort for next time. e.g. I ended up sitting on a different table to those who hadn't played the game before. Next time I will organise it so we're on the same table. If anyone wants to play again, this is a weekly game, and is part of the "Live Pub Poker League". Next week's game is listed here: http://www.meetup.com/extreme/events/112652042/ You can see where you rank on the region leaderboard here: http://livepubpokerleague.com/leaguepoints?league_id=36&lb=647&vid=0 Note: Please let me know if you want your name changed/removed.

    The current leaderboard runs until the end of May. At that point the top 32 players will be invited to play in the regional Final - this time round is going to be held in mid-June at Pranj's Bar.

    I will update more details as to what you can expect to win soon.

    Hi Matt,

    I would love to go but I have British gas coming and I don't know at what time they will be finishing (not the whole Co., only one engineer, by the way).
    I hope to make it!

      It's on the calendar already. I didn't email everyone about it, as didn't want to send 2 emails back to back about similar events.
