We had quite a turn-out for out cash game on Saturday night January 8. Between 15-18 players filtered through two tables of competitive poker play. We had a couple of new young college-age players participate and, it looked like at least one of them did well( sorry I didn't get a name.)
While the cash games were very competitive, it is still a great place for HOA members to get together and have a good time and to just get to know each other. There is a lot of trash talking but, it is always good natured and lends itself to a fun atmosphere. I think we had two tables of at least 7 players at each table all the way to midnight.
Our club provides a little differrent experience as many of our players have been playing together for years. It has a level of comraderie that you can't get in a commercial poker establishment(including the Oklahoma casinos.) Last Saturday night's game is proof of that as our attendance was higher than most of the commercial establishments in the metroplex.
Even if you have never attended one of our games, I think you will find it inviting. We try to go out of our way to make you feel comfortable even though you are attending a club that has been in existence for many years. We want you to become a regular. I would suggest you start by entering into one of our tournaments. You can't lose much money and you begin to learn about the people in club (and how they play!) We have had new players do very well in some of our tournaments and win a bit of money. It is the cheapest way to get into the LIVE poker playing universe. But, be beware, some of these guys have been playing for years and are pretty good. Some of the guys have been playing for years and are still not any good, so don't sweat it. (no names listed)
There are many options for live poker play today, but our poker club is a unique expererience that I think you will enjoy.
