The inaugural Strugglers poker night will be taking place in January 2006.
- Andy (never played poker before in my life)
- Phil (played a bit - but not exactly in the big leagues or anything)
- Simon (also never played before)
When and where?
At Matt's place, about 7.30pm on Thursday 5th January 2006.
- • This has been postponed until further notice —Simon 12:27, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
We'll be playing Fixed Limit Texas hold 'em.
Matt will be providing the chips and each player will pay £5 for an equal share.
We'll be doing something like this depending on what chips we have:
Ante is 1 chip, small blind is 1 chip, large blind is 2 chips, small bet 2 chips, big bet 4 chips. Small bets are used for the first two rounds of betting, the big bets used in the last two rounds. Up to three raises are allowed per round, making four bets in total per round.
Whoever ends up with all the chips at the end takes all the £5s.
