First off, I'd like to give a big thanks to Michael Medkiff for hosting another awesome wine and poker party last night!
Check out the LA Poker League!http://poker.meetup.com/1026/
I'm the organizer of the LA Poker League on Meetup.com which focuses mainly on tournaments. There are about 150 members right now, and the group is still growing. The league concept works like this...we play every week and earn points based on how high you finish. A small % of the prize pool from each tournament is held aside till the end of the "season", which lasts 10-12 weeks. At the end of each season, the player with the highest points will win "Player of The Year" and will receive entry into a big casino tournament.
The ultimate goal is to send two or three players to Las Vegas to play in one of the World Series of Poker $1500 buyin events!
We also have fun rebuy tournaments and cash games. It's so much fun to be playing in a league where you're not only trying to win the tourney you're currently playing in, but also trying to get enough points to stay ahead of the other points leaders! The race can get very competitive towards the end of a season.
