I'm always up for a game. There's a poker club for the slightly better players! But you'd do well to win, top prize is often in the hundreds.

u summed up year 12 for me
It was a tenner to buy in when i used to play. About 50 people each week. First week it was a fiver with rebuys, and about 100 people turned up, and it was a massive prize.

poker club was on mondays last year, the buy in was £10 but you could do re-buys. Total pot used to sometimes get to £700-£800 the times i went.

Don't like re-buys, that just means greedy people keep piling their dosh in till they win. I say if ya lose ya lose
They bump the pot up though, but I do agree with no re-buys, defeats the point of the game

yeh re-buys arent good, just means that the rich chinese can have another go. It does increase the pot though, but its just harder playing poker against someone that can just re-buy if they lose....
