View Full Version : POKER!
03-25-2007, 08:25 PM
Ok, With the game of TEXAS HOLDEM sweeping the nation I was thinking that perhaps we should hold a game.
Perhaps Tourny Format?
We could have it at my house here in Calgary.
People would be welcome to bring some Wild game so that we could have a bit of a BBQ or we order pizza.
Let me know if your interested I was thinking in perhaps 3 weeks. We could throw a Playoff game on the big screen.
Post up if your interested. Friends are welcome.
Buy ins would be $20 or $30 a Tourny. We could have 3 or 4 Tournys in a night.
We all chip in $10 and I will get all the Pizza, Beer, Pop, Chips,Ice, Snacks ECT I suppose I have a few bottles sitting around gathering dust as well.
I hope we can put this together.
Rack you want to make a trip up from the South?
Edmonton Fans are welcome also.. I guess you could wear your gear, but you do so at your own risk :lol :lol :lol
Could be fun. A chance to meet some people. I am looking forward to it.

LOL James I knew that our NHL thread was going to end in this idea, if I am not working I am so in. Regardless I will happilly lend you my poker set ( never been used ) 11.5 oz chips 500 set etc etc. should you require it. How many players were you figuring on? Lemme know how/if I can help at all.
03-25-2007, 10:49 PM
Im up for a game.
03-26-2007, 01:23 AM
I was thinking as many as we get. I can hold up to 3 tables in my house. But I doubt we will hit that amount. Even if we get 6 people that would be enough.
Remember friends are welcome.
I would throw this thing next weekend, but we are off on our holiday. Perhaps the next weekend. What works for everyone else? Perhaps we need to have it during the week?

(A chance to meet some people. I am looking forward to it.) Great idea But i cant go i know NOTHING about poker:o .
03-26-2007, 10:39 AM
I don't think anyone will hold that against you :rollin :rollin
03-26-2007, 12:26 PM
Depending on the night I would be interested as well. If I remember correctly I think I live pretty close to you.
03-26-2007, 02:42 PM
Depending on the night I would be in for sure sounds like fun! Not much of a poker player but I am sure someone would be happy to take my money.
Jamie keep us up to date on the night you are thinking of having it unless my wife has us doing a family thing I am in for sure!
03-26-2007, 03:18 PM
Ok this is what I am thinking. How about April 13 or 14?
I will set firm dates that week.
Hopefully we have some nice weather and we can do a bit of a BBQ.
03-26-2007, 03:43 PM
I think I am in Panorama that weekend. A wild game bbq would be cool.
03-28-2007, 09:19 AM
Hey, I'll just be coming back from Vegas........................might be a good go!
03-28-2007, 10:14 PM
If I wasnt' so far away, I would be in.
04-08-2007, 12:24 AM
What is the status ? Everyone still up for some games ?
04-08-2007, 10:16 AM
04-08-2007, 12:01 PM
I think it's still a go Jamie's just on vacation, sure he'll post when he gets back.....
04-09-2007, 01:01 AM
Hey guys, just got back. How does next weekend look for everyone?
04-09-2007, 01:45 AM
wont be seeding anyway
04-09-2007, 08:01 AM
04-11-2007, 12:08 AM
04-11-2007, 09:32 AM
Jamie if you are talking the 21-22 sounds good to me!
04-11-2007, 10:03 AM
I think that weekend will work best. (April 20 or 21)
If anyone is interested please Email me at jamiehunt(nospam)@shaw.ca
I will post a list of who is in and who is not. Please advise your preference to which night works the best and we will take the majority.
Format will be $20 per tourney. Blinds will go up fairly quickly and we will try and get in as many tourneys as we can.
If the weather is nice we can fire up the grill and get some sausages burning and of course there will be more than a few wobbly pops available to those that want them. I would have liked to have the Flames game on, but it looks like we will have to watch some other game. Smokers are welcome/Cigars are expected
Once again invite your friends. I live in South part of Calgary
Only post up if you’re sure you can make it. If you say you’re in, I will plan on you being here. If your plans have to change, just let me know a day or so in advance.
Against the Law
04-11-2007, 10:22 AM
I am sure the gov. would love to hear about this illegal poker game keep it up.;)
04-11-2007, 10:24 AM
Yeah, and no speeding on Deerfoot
04-11-2007, 10:49 AM
yeah Thanks for the email that will help.
04-11-2007, 10:55 AM
As long as the house is not taking in a rake or betting against players with increased odds is perfectly legal.
Because thats when the govt wants their cut of the profit.
04-11-2007, 11:43 AM
You obviously know nothing about Alberta Gaming laws....
Not sure how I missed this...but I'm coming up on next Friday...keep me in the loop...give me a jingle on the phone sometime.
04-11-2007, 02:48 PM
hahaha Illegal Poker game.
I am sure the cops will be bashing the door in on $20 poker game in a house with a handful of guys. What do you think the rake would be on that call it maybe 10% on money played...6 guys total bets $120 = a $12 rake...Think of your family Jamie do you want to spend the rest of your life in the clink for a $12 rake...or take the rake and get the guys a bag of chips.
04-11-2007, 04:48 PM
No rake, unless you get knocked out early. Then you can go pick up up the leaves in the backyard.
Serriously, no cost to anyone, just pitch in for the pizza. You know on second thought forgett about it. I am the host and thats exactly what I will do.
Pizza/Beer/Chips/Nachos/Snacks on me.
Sign up quick so I know who is in
04-11-2007, 05:02 PM
Im in, ill bring the wenches and Jamie will supply to grog
04-11-2007, 06:14 PM
Friday or Saturday night?
04-11-2007, 06:41 PM
Rack at this point it is up in the air. What night works for you?
04-11-2007, 07:26 PM
I'm coming into town on Wed night and will be there Thursday.....and I could stay for Friday if I needed....but Saturday would be a stretch....could make it happen if I need though....
Even if the game doesnt happen, we should get together on Wed or Thurs....
04-11-2007, 10:19 PM
Rack, I think we will make it for FRIDAY night. Bring your $$$
Also invite that buddy of yours that I met up in Wain. He was a good fellow.
It's now Official. Poker at my house in South Calgary. Friday April 20 7:00 Pm. Pm me for my Addy and telephone #.
04-11-2007, 11:05 PM
Friday will work...I'll bring Jordan along and we'll tell some good stories.....
04-11-2007, 11:18 PM
Friday works fine, I will bring some cigars, would you like moi to bring my chip set or no James?
04-12-2007, 12:22 AM
Kanon, I think I have enough. Looks like we will have at most 10 people, if we have more your set might come in handy. Throw it in your truck.
Also bring any sausage you might have.
04-13-2007, 04:23 PM
Great plan Jamie,
I wish I could make it but I signed up for the "Curl For A Cure" bonspiel which starts that night. Sure wouldn't have minded seeing some of that real estate money filter back to us poor old farmers...
I hope for Jamie's sake that the Flames are still in the playoffs by then.
04-13-2007, 04:59 PM
Im in jamie, whats your add?
04-13-2007, 07:37 PM
well we have 5 plus Rack might bring a buddy.
Lets try and get this to 8 or 10.
Let me know ASAP so I can hit Costco this weekend
04-13-2007, 11:53 PM
I have 20 bucks with your name on it if you wrestle Kanon down when you see him, put him in a choke Hold and slap him around a bit.:rollin :rollin :rollin :rollin
04-16-2007, 08:02 PM
