Anybody want a Poker night with Cafe members sometime?

Postby warrick95 » Wed Sep 22, 2004 11:15 am

Play some poker...chat a bit on the side. Whatcha think?

We could use play money tables somewhere...I'm not sure what site allows private tables. I usually play at PokerStars and I don't know if they have that feature. Suggestions here would be welcome.

We can pick a night that is good for all...prob. a Fri. or Sat. night...preferably a bit later for those of us who'll go out for the evening?

We could ante up a little if y'all want to make it a bit more interesting. Probably have everybody start with the same amount of chips...and we can set a dollar price on each chip...say $10=1000 chips. Depending on how deep our pockets are, we can then go on to decide how many chips we want to start with. After the night, we can figure out how to settle by the amount of chips each remaining person has...and who'll have to send $ to whom.

Just an idea...

I play on Poker Star quite a bit. Play money sounds good, i'm not sure if i'd want to play for real money yet. Things could get really complicated and ugly if something goes wrong. If you want to play for real money, I think it'll be the best just to play on real money tables. That way there won't be any unpaid debts.

Anyways, if you're just playing for play money count me in. If not, I'll let you know when I want to play for money and join you guys.

I will of course play. But be forewarned Warrick, we've tried to setup a game before, but it always seems to have fallen through. But if we play, I'm there.

Yeah, it's been tough to get everyone together at the same time. I'm almost always around though, and I'll keep an eye out. ;-)

I've gotten tired of UltimateBet - so when I saw this on the football side I took it as a sign that I should switch poker rooms.

When you sign up ith $50 in the account, can you cash out right away? AKA is this for cheapskates like me who had free MLB.tv (which I'm on hold cancelling as I type)?

I really can't tell.

I signed up and read everything but they didn't say that there were any other conditions.

If you deposit $50 you get a bonus $25 but only if you play something like 175 rated (means for money) hands within a month. But there was no such restriction for the chips.

I sent them an email this morning asking when I can expect to get my chips. No answer yet :,-( Will keep you posted on this.

I'd play poker for not-real money! PM me if you want to get together. I also go by StlSluggers.

Tuesday evenings would be best for me, and Thursdays definitely will not work. Any other time is subject to whatever is going on.

Looking forward to this. Sounds fun!

Alright, well it seems like there is interest in playing with play money...what site would y'all prefer to play on that has private tables?

Perlick, I'll take that as a challenge to set up a successful Cafe poker game. ;-)
