With all the inquiries I've been getting about a return to live poker, I am proud to announce a co-hosted LIVE POKER GAME on Saturday, July 11th.

Before we get into the nitty gritty, we've decided to address a few important House Rules regarding Covid first:
  • We do not want this event to become an attempt to shame others, or even us, for arranging this. If you still have concerns about live poker or group events, please ignore this email / invite
  • Masks will be optional
  • If you choose to wear a mask, you cannot admonish fellow players who choose not to
  • If you do not wear a mask, you cannot admonish fellow players who are wearing them
  • If you are not comfortable sitting next to unmasked players, you can request to be reseated, and we will try to move you to any available open seat
As a co-hosted event, this invite is reaching a combined email list of more than 300 players, so we anticipate interest in this event will be high.
As such, we will be instituting a first-response/first-seated reservation list up to 22 seats.
We will start a wait-list if necessary at 23 players.

Game Details
We are still working this out...
To try and appease all the different types of players I am thinking we will start with a short format/turbo HoldEm tournament (3-4 hours) followed by .25/.50 cash games.

Location
This is still TBD...
The game will either be at my studio, or Stephen's place near Stapleton. Once we have a finalized list of players, we will setup a group email to all players with a list of the specifics.

Start Time
Also TBD, but plan on a 5-6pm start on July 11th.

Game is open to all PCFers. If you are interest in playing, shoot me a PM to hold a seat!

We look forward to seeing you on the felt!! :tup:

One table is now FULL.
Moving on to table 2 reservations.

FYI... due to the weird stuff going on with public gatherings such as the emergence of the shaming scene, and over-involved "Karens" who just want to act as spoilers, we will not publicly share or list event participants. You will find out who else is playing the day of the event.

And we will not be posting any event photos.

We feel this is the best approach given the divisiveness around group events right now.

I don't at all mean to hijack your meetup thread, but I just need to get one thing off of my chest: fuck "Cancel Culture". That is all :)

The same "Karen's" trying to piss on your parade are the same one's out there protesting why they can't go out and get their hair cut and get their mani/pedis.

Not going to get into the politics of it in here. Most people know where I stand.

This is about a fun event with beers, smokes, some shit-talkin', some poker, and a mighty tray of frickin' rolling hot dogs. :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

I suppose my point is to not let the naysayers get you down and to enjoy your event!

Looks like a blast Andrew, wish I could be there. :tup:
Don’t know your plans for August but I will be in Denver Saturday August 8th.
I planned to be at Mikes place that day if he makes it home but it’s not looking promising at the moment. Would love to get together for a beer or even a small cash game if @slisk250 is a no go.
I’ve decided to still fly out on the 4th and head to Moab for a couple days of wheeling. Planning on being back in Denver by Saturday evening, not flying out till Sunday afternoon.
Would love to meet some of the Colorado crew if at all possible. Still hoping Mike can make it home but thought I’d maybe bring up a back up plan possibly if he doesn’t.
You guys enjoy your game on the 11th and would love to meet and hang out on the 8th if possible.
Cheers,
Tuna

I’m sure we can make something happen. And we can probably rally a single-table social game at a minimum.

Our baby is due 7/31, so my attendance at the Divide was always up in the air, and I had backups in place to manage the Weds warm-up if the baby arrived on that date.

So... we can probably make something happen. I just can’t guarantee I’ll be available.

Even with a phased reopen and ongoing protests, Colorado seems to be crushing on the Covid front according to ABC Denver7... individual cases slightly increased recently, but hospitalizations and the positive test rate (within our population) have actually declined.

Let’s hope the good news continues. As I’ll be returning to hosting with some more regularity. :tup:

We have enough players for two tables!

Now down to 5 seats remaining for this event.

***And as stated previously, attendee names will be kept private!

Man I want to. Still don't know about work. Depends on when Gilpin County Health figures out what they are going to do with table games

Blackhawk and Cripple Creek casinos reopen tomorrow with slots only.

I saw on the local news that they’re reevaluating table games July 1, with “hopes” of them returning first or second week next month.

Financially the state is in dire straights, so I wouldn’t be surprised if table games get brought back at that point. They simply need the revenue.
