- Cologne, Germany
I've convinced our swedish BCC expert and running enthusiast @Eriks and @MrsEriks to visit the beautiful city of Cologne for some sightseeing, local beer and - you guessed it - some poker!
Since @MrsEriks doesn't seem very interested in a tour through my chip vault, she agreed to let Erik have one night off and this is where you guys come in!
On October 15th 2022 I wanna invite some friendly people from PCF to have an enjoyable day of poker in the Lovejoy residence - which is just a 85qm (~900 square feet) appartement. That means seats will be quite limited and I can't offer over night accommodations.
I'll be opening the doors at 3pm and have one 9 handed and one 6 handed table open for some NLHE and mixed games shenanigans until at least midnight.
We'll be ordering takeout and I'll sponsor beers and soft drinks for the day.
Unlike in the US, you rarely find games among friends over 0.10/0.20 in the German homegame scene.
Since this is by design an international meetup and I enjoy playing a little bigger than that, here's what I'm proposing:
I'd like to offer .25/.50 for the NLHE portion of the day and .75/1.5 limit (3 chip game with quarters) for the mixed games.
I'm gonna set up two tables so there is the option to switch games on one or both of the tables.
If there is interest to play bigger towards the end of night, that is perfectly fine with me as long as everyone at the table agrees.
I'd like to keep the game friendly for all participants. Just shooting the shit, talking chips and playing cards.
There are a few hotels in walking distance, like the "Hotel im Leskanpark" if you feel like coming from far away for just the one day.
@5aces found a less expensive hotel at €76 for the night of october 15th:
8 minutes walking distance seems fair.
Mostly, I'm expecting interest from the German PCF crowd in driving distance:
But anybody who is interested in making the trip will be considered for one of the seats.
Preference will be given to people Erik or I already played with (live or online) or had dealings with. Also I might fill some spots with my local regulars who are a fun bunch as well.
Tagging some Europeans in no particular order who I'd be delighted to have at my humble home to play some cards.
Those are just off the top of my head.
I'm sure I've forgotten many cool people who hopefully don't take offense and just post their interest in attending below.
I wasn't expecting the amount of interest in my little 1 day event, so I decided to open a second 6 player table for the meetup.
That gives me a comfortable player count of 9 + 6.
Starting on Oct. 15th at 3pm and there will be no hard end time. I'll keep the doors open as long as there are players willing to play.
Everybody who by now showed just a smidge of interest in attending will be offered a seat at the table. Seats still open by Sep 15th will be given to my local regulars.
Everybody on the list: Please give me an rsvp as soon as you can.

We'll be playing on the Bullenrunde table that I've built last year.
If I decide to set up a second table it will either be a guest table or my custom flamingo poker mat.
I plan to play on both the flamingo and the mixed THC set. Depending on what the majority wants we can also get the Bullenrunde or the Isle of Capri sets into play ofc.
Mixed old school THC
