re: Poker & Poker Room (live) players?
I definately prefer live games compared to the online game. I do love the online game also, but face to face is awesome. A while ago diabloblanco responded to a post of mine and told me that live poker was way better than the online game, and boy was he right. I've been to the casino a few times now and I now haved my own poker club! Once a month, 2 games a night, $20 buy in each game. It is great.

When I lived in San Antonio, had a game at my house every Friday night for nearly 7 years - those were the good times...
First of all, good luck to both of you guys at the Elks this weekend, man it would be great to play with you guys (and suck back a couple of cold ones).
Dave, go to the Elks club in town 2 weeks in a row and you will find a slew of players that will play at your house. Here is what to look for:
1. Best players there, you'll be able to tell this in two weeks. I asked the best players I could find to come to my house, it only makes me better.
2. Non Drinkers, Players that don't drink. I know it sounds wierd to ask people to your house, If you pick non-drinkers you'll have much less problems.
3. Non smokers, I dont smoke, this is a biggie for me.
I hope you find a bunch of good players to play. Good luck!!
