New Kitchener Player

Hello, I have been playing poker for a long time and just joined the forum on the advise of my son.
Looking forward to playing in some local games.

  • Welcome
  • Welcome to the group. Lots of great people around here and many amazing games in and around the K/W area.
  • Welcome Ray. Play poker and drive a Toyota I always say!
  • Welcome to the forum Ray!
  • Hello,
    I am also new here. I’m excited to get involved in some new games but of course a little hesitant to meet strangers from the internet 🤷🏼*♀️
  • Were all friendly, some of us bite some of us don't. You will notice its the same bunch of people for the most part all spread out over KW and Cambridge. Most games are friendly,

    Welcome to the forum anyways.

    If you look and see a game you like just reply with an "I'm in please" and if you need the address ask the host to PM it to you!
  • Thank you that was very helpful. Are games held at houses or venues? Is there drinking? Sorry for all the questions.
  • Generally all the home games are held in someone's house. Drinking is generally BYOB but it is pretty rare that excessive drinking is ever a problem.

    niks1 could give you a females perspective of the comfort level once you get to know the people.

    also, although we act very childish (more myself than others) the average age at the regular games I have been to from the forum is around 50 and up. There are a few younger and a few WAY older like Comp but we are all pretty well behaved.

    This is good to know, I will try not to be the excessive drinker lol. Well this sounds great and I’m looking forward to it!

    I can handle that.
  • The forum games have more than a few regular female players. My girlfriend, Niks1 started playing with us about 2.5 years ago and still comes out, so it can't be that bad, lol.
    There are so many regular, weekly games in the Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge area, you will have lots to choose from. and as been said before, we have lots of fun but it always comes from a good place.
  • Ignore my joke about Hamilton and Trigs, it was a long running joke that was in bad taste at this point as you do not know him and maybe the sarcasm does not come across. Trigs runs amazing games in Hamilton also!!

    steve, just when I think you are fitting in perfectly around here you go and feel bad about a F.U. Trigs. Argggggh.

    :p

    [MENTION=20288]Bossgal[/MENTION] - overall it's a good group of people. There are lots of times that it's just me and the boys, but it's never been weird for me. As a woman who plays poker, even before meeting this group, I was often the only female at the poker table in casinos. In this case, I joined these games with my boyfriend, so that made it easier for me. But everyone is very welcoming and nice. AND when there has been the odd person who crossed a line a little, there was always someone else who shut it down quickly.

    Also - if I will be at the same game that you decide to start off at, I am happy to meet you outside or before hand and go in with you/introduce you :)
  • Well everyone so far seems to be pretty welcoming so I’m definitely excited to join a game and get this going 😃
