Click here for Directions / Time's not about poker, it's about all sorts of different card games, mostly poker.  Second, it's not about card games, it's about fun.  It's about 20 people sprawling into a room, half of which brought food, eating a great meal, playing some good tunes, having a couple beers, talking with friends and making new ones, and oh, yeah, throwing some cards.

About every 3rd MNP, for no known reason, it's a quiet night.   Only about 10 people or less show up, we play mellower music, we're a little more relaxed, but it's still a lot of fun.

Rules (or "I don't know how to play so I can't come!"  Wrong answer!)
We go over the rules before every card game.  We often play dummy hands to teach the rules.  We run two tables, the low stakes table for fun and learning, and the high stakes table for serious betters.  If there's enough of a crowd, we often have more than one high or low stakes table going.
Rough Idea:
Low Stakes: Nickel ante, quarter maximum bet, two circles round the table (max 50 cent bet/raise by any one person).  Pot matching limits (for pot-matching games like .357) is $1 or sometimes $2.  Expect a nightly gain or loss maxing out at $5.  You can back out of any hand if your uncomfortable or unsure of the rules.
High Stakes:  Dealer calls the shots on ante, raise, and pot matching.  Typically there's a nickel to quarter ante, typical dollar max raise, pot matching up to unlimited.  We've had $5 pot matching with people risking more.  Big pots won/lost = $30.  (6 people who matched a $5 pot)/

What you should bring

What you Need to Do
Let me know if you are coming!   (Cook and bring some food if you'd like to help!)

Time:  In-house cooking starts at 6.  Dinner starts at 7.  Cards start at 7-8.  Ends when the last person goes home.
  Off the hook.

Disclaimer:  Since gambling for money would be illegal (unless it's run by the Church, State, or someone giving the State kickbacks like a racetrack), we only gamble for tokens.  To keep track of what tokens are owed, we use markers that everyone is familiar with, typically nickels, dimes, and quarters.   It is up to the participants to settle up and exchange the money for tokens at the end of the night.  No, really, I'm serious.
