I've always wanted to learn how to play poker... If some of you would like to come teach me, I'd be happy to host a game Saturday night. Depending on interest, we could either do a Hold 'em tournament, or just play dealer's choice. I'm on the back side of Mission Viejo, so we could even preface the game with a little canyon drive, just to make it more Lotusy.

1 or 2 more and I'd say we have a game.

Just so we're clear, I was being a bit facetious and have played poker occasionally. I don't have a professional poker table, but I do have plenty of chips. If we end up with 5-7 people, I'd say we do dealer's choice. If it's more people than that, then a friendly tournament probably makes more sense (which, in my experience, often leads to a dealer's choice game as people are eliminated).

If you want to do it in San Diego, I will volunteer my house. I have a 10 person professional poker table. I will be happy to teach as well.

Orange county is centrally located between San Diego and LA, so if I host, everybody can come...

I'm not sure I'd play for money against the person that taught me how to play. I'd always be skeptical that they didn't teach me quite everything. :D

Hahahaha....

As long as its friendly (buy ins would not be big enough for a guy named loan shark to be interested in playing for hours to take everyone's money) I'll be there.

We'll keep it friendly. For a home game I usually do $20.00 buy in with .25, .50 and 1.00 chip values. Tournaments we usually do a $50 or $60 buy in. I'm open to input.

From palatine, take Palatine Road E to 294 South to 80 W to 76 S to 70 W to 15 S to 91 W to 55 S to 5 S...
