Our Bay Area Poker Meetup actually meets and plays poker....weekly! It’s a very active group, so if you actually want to meet people and play poker, you found the only weekly poker meetup in the Bay Area.
Looking for friendly, semi-professionally run home poker games in the Bay Area? That's us. Our poker tournaments and cash games are well organized and player friendly for all skill levels. With over 10 years experience hosting, we've seen and dealt with every possible situation. Yes...even 'that guy'. We have a great mix of the young and young at heart, couples, and singles.
What makes us different from other meetup poker groups? Well, you may have noticed, but we actually schedule and play poker! Most Meetup poker groups are lucky to get a game off the ground, but we schedule and play multiple times per month at our Redwood City, Sunnyvale, and San Jose hosting sites.
Our games promise to be casual enough for a poker novice to join and structured enough for a veteran to appreciate. Our focus is for everyone to have a good time regardless of how the cards run on any given night. We use dual-screen casino style tournament clocks and excellent blinds structures. We also use and enforce TDA rules to protect the integrity of the game.
Remember, this isn't a game where everyone puts on earbuds and ignores each other! We put on the Warriors or Giants and bring our own beverages/food. We try to keep it friendly while also trying to crush each other's hopes and dreams. Sound like fun?
