What we're about

Important changes as of August 1, 2018 written below.

Hi Everyone,

So my summer break is wrapping up and I am ready to start hosting some games again. As you might already know, this group has been around for a long time (2008) as San Francisco Bay Area Poker Meetup. The group was about to close (April 2017) so I "saved" it on the last day with the hopes of keeping it alive as an SF poker group with multiple hosts and a resource for players. There were over 1500 players in the group at that time so it seemed like the perfect place to do that and get some games going. Since life happens, interests change and people move the group needs to be paired down based on activity this last year (participation in games/visits to the SFBAPM page/Meetup.com) to make it more manageable and to get the group full of active/plan to be active members. Do you know you want to stay in the group but can't play anytime soon? No worries!!! Shoot me a line and let me know or please just join again if you are removed and want to stay. My goal is to get the group down to less than 500 active/interested players in the next month.

Also the name has changed to reflect that I seemed to be the main person hosting under this group so it is less about SFBAP right now and more about games at my place. So goodbye SFBAPM and hello Poker in The Haight. To keep the spirit of getting as many accessible home games going in SF, I am happy to put the word out if you are hosting a game.

Looking forward to seeing you at some of the upcoming poker games or other poker tables around SF ;)
