Hi, thanks for all the interest. Just for your information, we play all variations of poker - seven card stud, hold'em, omaha, hi-low games, etc. Dealer calls the game. With so much interest so far, we can probably set two different games per week. Once in the weekday and once on the weekend. lostinasia2001@hotmail.com.

Poker game???

Postby Jorve » Thu Sep 23, 2004 7:45 pm

I would love to play a game of cards, in whatever form that takes place. Sad to say, I have a weak spot for losing money, so if anyone plays in a poker game around town that needs another chump to drop his cash into the pot, I am your man.

Friendly or competitive games, either way I am good to go...

On-line poker

Postby quiksilver » Sat May 21, 2005 6:17 pm

Not sure where to post this but has anyone tried on-line gambling(poker in particular) from China. I know gambling is illegal there and I'm sad that I won't be able to spend the odd night out at the casino like I do here in Canada. But I was hoping I might be able to get my fix on on-line poker sites.

Otherwise, I just have to get an apartment big enough to invite you all over for poker night. But if it's illegal to play for money we might have to play strip poker :lol:

no, but we can use mahjong chips instead. hope we can get a regular crew going, no serious money, more of a social event/meeting new ppl than anything else, at least that's what I'm hoping for.

Is there any weekly (friendly and low buy-in) poker games around? If not, anyone want to get some poker nights going?

I'm kinda interested, where is the game held(a general area or in terms of subway stops). how moderate is "moderate"? a ball park #, for example how much is "buy-in" every time?

Stakes are moderate: like loose and your shirt comes off :mrgreen:

On serious note: Las Vegas rules or the European once?

Poker Night

Postby johngu1980 » Sat Nov 05, 2005 9:31 pm

I posted something similiar in Nightlife. So if you're reading this again - I apologize. I figure poker shows up on ESPN enough times to be called a "sport". In any case, anyone know of games that go on in Shanghai? Anyone interested in becoming part of one (I'm willing to organize)? Let me know.

Hi John,

We already have a regular game here. Email me at lostinasia2001@hotmail.com if you want more details. Do you have a regular game as well? How high are your stakes?

I'm interested as well. I live in the French Consession. I'll play almost any stakes, from friendly on up.

Bryon, what's your game like? Is it a night of Texas Hold 'Em, or is it dealer's choice?

johngu1980, what kind of a game are you interested in? If you put a game together, email me at klink94@hotmail.com

IgotAquestion thanks for the invite, I have been missing poker nights. Are the players strictly hold??em players or are there going to be other games like; follow the queen, jacks are better, seven card, five card, high-low, etc. Just let me know when and where and I will be there with money to lose.

tommckay1478@hotmail.com

i already do a regular poker night of about 5/6 people every week. could we all join?

im no pro but i know the rules. do u bet a single sum like the pros or per card? lessens the hurt for us jokers.
