What we're about

This is a friendly and social home game for casual to mid-level experienced poker players looking to have fun, meet other poker enthusiasts and start the week out right.

Open to men and women. The game will be held the 2nd Monday of every month @ 7:00pm and will run until 11:00pm. 8-10 players per night. Arrivals are requested between 6:45pm and 6:55pm so the game can start promptly at 7:00pm.

RSVPs open 2 weeks before the event and close day of the event at 2:00 PM.

If you commit to attending, please be considerate of your fellow players and make every effort to show up. Please note... "No Shows" and people who chronically cancel same day, hours before the event, will regretfully be removed from the group.

The game is NL Texas Hold 'Em, cash game. Max buy-in of $40 and can reload any time chip stack falls to $5.00 or less. .25/.50 blinds and the blinds do not go up. Everyone deals (unless a player is uneasy dealing, they can pass their deal to the next person, but of course still keep their button). Any misdeals will result in a re-deal. None of us are professional dealers and mistakes will happen. :-)

I do not have a rule requiring players to stay until 11:00 PM. The benefit of a cash game is you can leave whenever you want. Be mindful that a player who, over time, gets labeled as someone who "hits and runs", usually finds themselves not being welcomed to future events. Let general poker etiquette guide your actions.

One player per hand. (It's only fair. No discussions about possible holdings or potential hands can be discussed while there is action left to be played) Heads up, the two players can talk all they want. Check raising is encouraged. Bluffing is encouraged. (unless you are bluffing me). Re-raises need to be double the initial raise to be a complete raise. Prop bets are fine, but no one is required to participate. i.e. if some players want to have side bets on flop coordination (all red vs black or more red vs black or a specific suit vs another)... feel free.

Live bets (straddles) can only be done "under the gun" (to the left of the big blind) and cannot be more than 4x the big blind ($2.00). Anyone wanting to come in must open for at least the amount of the straddle. We do not "run it twice". I know it looks cool on TV and can be fun, but our stakes are not high enough to warrant the time spent in negotiations.

Snacks will be provided. No house rake, just bring a good attitude along with your favorite drink.

This group is a social one with varying levels of experience designed to be fun, relaxing and meeting others with a passion for poker. I look forward to tossing the cards around with you.
