What we're about

"Playing bad cards out of position since 2003..."

* Looking for a home poker game in London?
* Having problems filling your own home game?
* New to the game and looking to learn the ropes?
* Play online and looking to sit down and play LIVE poker?

London Poker Meetup (LPM) is currently the largest poker group on Meetup, Worldwide. We’re a friendly, welcoming group of poker enthusiasts and amateur players based in and around London who meet up regularly to discuss poker, arrange friendly home poker games and play small stakes tournaments in pubs, clubs, public cardrooms and (occasionally) casinos. We also neck a few frosty ones together from time to time, play online poker together (badly) at a variety of sites and badmouth each other on the LPM forum.

We play ALL sorts of games, from Texas Holdem to PLO, Omaha 8 to Razz, H.O.R.S.E., Triple Draw, Irish, you name it we play it, so if you've ever wanted to learn OTHER games (as well as Holdem) and learn them cheaply then London Poker Meetup is the place!

With weekly games to suit all comfort and experience levels and buyins ranging from £5 - £50 there should be something to suit everyone. Join us (it's free!) and find out why we're the friendliest people to play poker with in London!
