      I would like to start off by saying I live in Toronto Ontario Canada, I play at an underground poker club and I don't know what to do but when I go play it's more of a playground.

      What I mean by that is everyone is so loud, they show cards to the player next to them they flip there hands over probably the most unorganized poker club. They only run 1. 2 and 2.5. . My cousin went the other day there and he told me now I see why you flip out, I do flip out because I can't play in peace and be relaxed always so much drama, I know your probably going to say don't go. But I don't know any other clubs to go to. What do you guys think

      Dude, I live in Brampton and I would never go to an "underground" poker club, especially one that is as lax on the rules as that one.

      For those limits, go to Casino Niagara or Fallsview. PS member Belayd plays limit in Brantford.

      Or, have a home game!

      Also, there was recently a shooting at an underground poker tourney in the GTA.

      When there are no rules or etiquette, there is just chaos. It doesn't sound like a very trustworthy place.

      Why play if you can't relax and have a good time?

      Ya I hear you, I know some people that were there, it was a big tournament and some guys came and robbed the place, what happened was that guy who got killed was an mma fighter and he fought back and got shot.

      Ok, guys. I know what happened. You drove into a time-loop and it brought you here. I know it's hard to believe, but you've time-travelled to the 21th century. Right now it's 2011 AD. Everyone you ever knew have been dead for 300 years.

      Although this might be a shock, there's some good in it. Nowadays you can just go out to a casino and play cards, no yelling or shooting involved.

      Cheers, see you at the tables!
