Never fear, Poker Club isn't dead -- it was just sleeping. We'll be back in full force bring you the opportunity to get your poker on Friday the 24th of October.

We'll gather at our place and start the evening at 7PM, as is our tradition, with the Practice Round. This will help level-set things by making sure everyone understands how the betting works, etc., and also gives the Clones an opportunity at play...

Then, at 8PM, we'll begin the Big Event: a $10 buy-in No-Limit Texas Hold-em Tournament. firstfrost will return as your Designated Dealer for the evening. If the main tourney finishes early enough we may fit in a second round (with possible Turbo (or even the dreaded Double-Secret Turbo) variations).

To sum up:
What:Poker Club
Where:Our place
(email me for directions)
When:Friday 24 October 2008
7PM until we're done

May Poker Club, Friday the 23rd

April brought us our most well-attended Poker Club yet, including our first-ever multi-table1 start. Let's see if we can duplicate that success in May.

As usual, we'll start at 7PM with Practice Round. This will give us a chance to ensure that everyone understands how the betting and blinds work - plus allows the Clones a chance to play.

At 8PM, we'll start the Main Event, a $10 buy-in No-Limit Texas Holdem Tournament. If we end up with another multi-table start this time, we'll organize a second game so the early outs have something to do.

As is our custom, firstfrost returns as our Designated Dealer. Please feel free to invite anyone I forgot to.

You can reserve yourself a seat in the tournament (and help me know whether or not to be ready for that second game) by sending me email or replying to this post.

The Details:
What: Poker Club
When: 7PM Friday 23 May 2008
Where: Our place (email for directions)


Hope to see you there!


1. Since "mutli-" means "more than one", the two tables we started with count.

Show up as early as 7PM. As is our custom, we'll deal out some practice hands to level the field (at least as far as knowing the rules of the game and understanding how betting works) and to give the Clones a chance to join in.

Then, by 8:00PM, we'll start the Main Event: a $10 buy-in No-Limit Texas Hold-em Tournament. If it ends early, any who are interested could go for a second round.

As usual, firstfrost will be there as your Designated Dealer.

Reserve yourself a seat in the tourney by replying to this post or sending me email.

Also, feel free to invite anyone I may have forgotten, whether they come to play or just to hang out.

See you on the 19th!

Come hang out and play poker, or just hang out. firstfrost will again be our Designated Dealer.

We'll start at our place at 7PM (email for directions if ya need 'em).

Don't worry if you're a beginner. We start with a practice round to make sure everyone's clear how blinds and betting works and to give the Clones a chance to play.

We'll shoot for starting the Main Event by 8PM: a no-limit Texas Hold-em tournament with a $10 buy-in. If it finishes early enough, we can go for Round Two.

I'm on my way out of town, but I wanted to get this out there right away so folks could save the date... I'll post more details and send the official email when I get back Saturday.

BUT, how could we not play poker on Friday the 13th?

Reply here to reserve a seat in the tourney - I'll transfer reservations to the "offical" post on Saturday...

Secret Guest Omega's Poker Tournament

Hmm. I emailed this earlier, but definitely missed some people, and perhaps my addresses were outdated as well.

Secret Guest Omega had asked me:


Do you think any of the folks from your poker crowd would be interested in coming out to Carlisle for a $3-plus-rebuys tournament at our house on the 27th?

It's as much a social thing as a poker tournament (we have dinner at 5:30 and cards at 7:30).
