What we're about

至各位在新加坡的华裔德州扑克玩家:

2015年3月,为了“迎合”新加坡最新颁布并执行的“Remote Gambling Act",我们正式决定开始发展这个以华裔玩家为主的德州扑克游戏团体。

在此,我们欢迎所有热爱德州扑克游戏本质的玩家加入我们的团体。而且我要特别强调的是“本质”二字,原因是我们并不想演变成另一个单纯的地下赌博场所。所以如果你只是喜欢赌博,而又不愿意出新加坡赌场的门票钱的话;如果你只是想进门坐在位子上一言不发地玩2个小时就走人的话;如果你觉得德州扑克与Black Jack没啥本质上的区别的话。我们想对你说一声抱歉,因为你真的找错地方了。

在这里,“人”永远是第一位,Meetup的意义在于人与人的交流与互动。身处异乡,能逢知己,已难能可贵,更何况还是有着相同爱好的知己。在牌桌上,我们谈天,我们说地,我们开玩笑、聊生活、讲生意。我们要的是一张充满乐趣的热闹牌桌。如果我们的每一个成员都只是闷声不吭地进门,一言不发地玩牌,静步如猫地离开,那我们干脆改成经营地下赌场博大小还来的省事呢~你说不是吗?

在这里,“游戏”是第二位。时值德州扑克开始风靡全世界的今日,如果有人问你为何喜爱这款游戏,你会如何作答?在我观看的各类国际扑克采访节目中,几乎所有被采访的职业玩家都有一个共同点:他们都是从喜欢这个游戏本身开始,而不是看中这个游戏可以为他们赚多少钱。简而言之,他们最享受的是游戏的整个过程。不论是闲暇时间的学习研究,每周末的家庭现金游戏,还是每一届的正式巡回比赛,过程乐趣永远大于结果。我们希望在给玩家提供一个游戏场地的同时,也能带给大家一个互相交流、学习、进步的场合。在这里,游戏的规则与技巧并不是什么不能公之于众的秘密。我们可以互相介绍学习资料,模拟演练,一起观看精彩比赛视频,发起讨论组,甚至组团去海外参加比赛。扑克并不必须是一条孤军登顶的道路,它完全可以是一项互惠互利,共同进步的活动。除了All-in,我们还有很多事可以一起做~

最后,之所以组织成员主要针对华裔,主要是因为:第一,虽然德州扑克风已吹至中国,但在国内,纵观玩家数量毕竟还是小众。而在新加坡的华裔玩家则更是小众中的小众,且各个玩家之间很少有交集,缺乏一个有针对性的团体。第二,当地由新加坡人组织的扑克团体并不是非常的“Chinese-Friendly”,由于文化背景的差异等等因素,坐在一张满是新加坡人的私人牌桌钱,听着他们用英语+福建话谈论各种事不关己的当地话题,对很多中国玩家而言还不如去赌场玩来的痛快。当然我们也欢迎那些能理解并尊重中国背景文化的非华裔玩家的加入。所有真玩家的支持,都是对我们最大的鼓励。

所以,如果你也怀着一份骄傲的扑克情怀,或拥有一个属于自己的扑克理想的话。我们将对你说:“ See you at the table!”。

Dear Chips,

Welcome to the first Non-Limited Texas Hold'em Poker Club which mainly feature to Chinese players in Singapore. As we found that many Chinese players in Singapore can hardly find decent poker bodies who share similar value and culture background, that's why we decide to start this Meetup for those who would like to meet up new friends from China and have fun together at the poker table.

While all Chinese players are welcome, whoever not from China but have decent understanding about and respect to Chinese culture are also welcome. We are glad to have you to add more colours to our table topic.

Members of the group will be expecting regular weekly cash game with different size of the blinds. As Singapore has two formal casinos who offer a minimum of 5/10 games. We aim to gather all other plays who find that the casino game is too expensive for their gaming budget. Also, we have Sit-&-Go Tournament every few months.

What we would like to emphasise is that this interest group only open to true poker players. While we say true players, we mean this is not a group for gamblers. People join this group because we love poker as it is, not because how much it can make us richer in terms of money. There will be a lot of activities organised by us other than playing the poker at the table, such as teaching/study session, sharing session, watch videos, group purchase of poker staffs, group tour to oversea tournament, etc. We hope to find the true poker lover who always enjoy the journey over the results and who enjoy the social aspect over the win/lose aspect of the game. For those who try to join our table without any introduction of yourself; keep playing for a few hours without a words; leave the table without saying "thanks for the game"; we're afraid that you are not welcome to this group at all.

After all, thanks for joining us as one of the true poker players. We see you at the table.
