Hi PCF-

I'm newly signed up but I've been a lurker for a while. I live in Chicago and before Pandemic Times I could be found at the Horseshoe Hammond playing 2/5. I'll be fully vaccinated on May 7th and am jonesing to get back to live poker. I recently purchased my first 'real' set (HSI cash set from Apache, bummed I missed the chip room sale) and I already feel like I'm going to be hooked. Every now and then I host a home game in the New Buffalo area.

Happy to be here. Any other Chicago people here? Anyone hosting games post-vaccination? Say hi.

Hi! There are a few of us here. :) Congrats on your HSI set! I used to go down to Hammond every now and then so it always amuses me to see these chips being played all over the world.

I just moved out of Logan square and to Kansas city for work in January! Welcome to the forum! Plan on coming to the kansas city straddle in summer 2022 since you are a midwesterner :)

Welcome! Pre-pandemic I used to go to Chicago once a year for work conventions. I always enjoyed eating and drinking around Michigan Ave. I also did a trip out to Rivers and Horseshoe Hammond. Never spent time playing poker at the casinos since it was a more social event with coworkers but planned to one day.

You started with a really nice set! Question is what is the next itch driving you towards :)

Fracs. For the games I host I need at least two racks of $0.25. Either I have to find someone with HSIs or relabel something else.

You can resource the "member locations" thread to get an idea of locals in your area!
