Ive been thinking that I should write about my home game so here goes

Car Hole Poker (CHP) is a Fortnightly Sit and Go Tournament Poker League. CHP was formally Established 2018 but has been holding games since about 2003.

CHP holds 2 Freeze out $20 sit and go tournaments. The best out of the 2 receive the fortnightly Trophy. If there is a tie the winner will be determined by a countback based on the second game. Funny thing is the .60 cent trophy is the only important thing. The money is fleeting but bragging rights last forever.

If people are keen I run a low stakes cash table for people knocked out early. Or there is a demolition Man Pinball Machine

It got its name from the Simpsons episode see

Its theme is based on the Original Mad Max film which is all about the cars which in turn follows the Car Hole theme.

The design for the inlays and dealer button was created by Quicksilver (Thanks Steve) and I LOVE it.

It’s the movie that started Mel Gibson’s career. And it’s so Ozzie it’s not funny but it is defiantly showing its age now but features the most iconic Aussie muscle cars of the early 70’s.

A quick synopsis is:

Max the mild-mannered good guy cop Max Rockatansky who lives by the sea with the wife and new baby have a loving life in paradise. Later the Missus gets into trouble with the local motor cycle gang whilst on holiday and the wife knees the gang leader “The Toe Cutter” in the nuts and inadvertently rips off Mr Candalinies hand in the ensuing fight to get away. One handed Mr Candalini and the swolen balled Toe Cutter are upset so they form a plan, then hunt down wifey and kid and kill them.

This made Mr Rockatanski very sad and lonely. Later he got mad. In fact he got so mad he kills the all the gang in all sorts of interesting and fun ways using his Black supercharged V8 XB Ford Falcon Coup.

Everybody doesn’t live happily ever after. The end.

At the end of the year whoever gets the most trophy’s gets the World Series of CHP Poker Champion Trophy, a CHP dealer button and their name on the wall of fame.

We have a facebook page where invites and photos are posted. This is a highly recommended thing because it generates interest and discussion. Also that appears on other peoples feed that makes people want to get involved and it snowballs.

I have rules. This is the most important thing if you want to run a game for 2 reasons:

  • It stops arguments about rulings. Arguments are death to a game. It kills the mood and that’s why people come to your game.
  • it’s the most important teaching tool you have. I use the rules not to punish but to educate. Everyone gets away with breaking a rule once. Help them to understand why the rule is there and its importance.

The second I saw “Car Hole Poker” I knew this was going to be good. Easily one of my favorite bits

“A counterfeit jeans ring operating out of my car hole???”
