It's mostly going to be guys from my office, but I'd be open to inviting some chippers. Don't expect acronymmed meet-up levels of chiposity, but I have some used Paulsons, plastic cards and two speed cloth tables. Most of the usual players would be kicked out of a real casino in under 5 minutes, so patience will be required. There may be some .05/.10 NLHE or Crazy Pineapple after 1 or 2 turbo tournaments.


I'll try to get some more pics to post this time.

Damn. I'm in houston from time to time (live in college station) for my girlfriends family. Too bad I'll be at some dumb soccer game or I'd be in. Have to catch the next one.

Here's my slightly customized blind structure. Gonna have to set it up on blindvalet through my PS3, so it helps to be pretty close to the automatic structure for T1000, 9 players, 2 hrs, 10 min levels and small blind starts at 5. Just added a 5/15 level and condensed the 30/60 and 40/80 levels. Trying to get two of these in before the end of the night.

Had 9 signed up, ended up with 7 (one had to watch kids for a sick wife, one no show, no call). I secured my free roll for the night in the first game playing decent TAG poker, negotiating a chop to $25/$45 from $20/$50 (hard bargain, right?). Second game, couldn't get away from top pair with K6o, so I jammed over a 200 post flop raise into K10o from Villain #2 in our next story. Had the range right, but was feeling tilty and playing with free money.

Villain #1 covers #2 and shoves with :ks::qd: on a :6c::5c::qh: flop. Villain #2 calls with the rest of his stack and flips over :as::7c:. :kc: on the turn and the whole table missed the flush draw (just saw the insult to injury 2nd pair). :ac: hits on the river and Villain #2 says "at least I paired my ace in the end". It took a couple people giving a lesson in counting to 5 clubs before he figured out why I shoved the big pile of chips his direction. Villain #1 had gone runner-runner flush twice before, so there was some general satisfaction in turning the tables.

Apologies for the potato phone, I wasn't really paying attention to holding it still.
