About us. We are a group of poker players looking to play some cards, socialize, and have fun. We love playing poker (but don't like having to go to the casino) so we strive to create the best setup possible where we can properly play (i.e. dedicated dealer, plastic cards, high quality chips, actual poker table). At the same time, everyone is friendly and laid back. You won't find any sunglasses, hoodies, or headphones here.
Looking for. Other similarly minded players who love playing poker, want to socialize, and meet new people. End goal is to get a critical mass of regular group of guys (and gals) who can get together to play (typically 1x week). That in mind, we are looking for other serious players who are looking to be regular attendees. This doesn't mean you have to play every week, but this group should not be 1 of 10 other meetup groups that you join thinking it could be intriguing, but never attend.
Location. We are located in the West End at the Longfellow Place Apartments.
Stakes. We've only played $1/2 No Limit Hold'em (NLHE) cash games so far.
How to Join. Request to join and fill out the application! I emphasize -- Do not view this as the request to join for the typical meetup group where filling out your name and clicking submit gets you in. We aim to keep the group small with active, engaged members. The point of the application questions are to help me get comfortable inviting you to the game while ensuring you'll be a good fit. Putting real thought into the responses to help show that you are truly interested would go a long way; doesn't have to be an essay, but one sentence only saying "I like playing poker!" would be a surefire way to not get accepted.
Other. There is a long queue of players who applied before I revamped the application process. Apologies for the hassle, but please apply again under the new questions. If there are any issues, just let me know.
Feel free to reach me at EmersonPlacePoker@gmail.com with any questions or comments. Look forward to playing with everyone!
