      HI YA,
      Just starting this thread to find any local poker players in and around the Birmingham area. I live about 15 mins away from the city centre, I play live local pub leagues and a little on line. I have to admit that im not a great player but enjoy the social side ( and a pint or two...lol) and the chat about whats going on. I was hopeing to see how many Poker Strat members there are around and if there were enough, to have a get together from time to time to have a live fun game and meet up.

      At the time of writing i have 5 people who are members who have asked me to sort a thread out and see who else is out there and if anyone would be interested.

      We vary in age and gender and all would be welcome, not worried about ability or anything like that....more of a fun time..... un fortunatly for me i will have to bring the misses, damn why did i get her to register... oh yeah 50 bucks..lol.

      So if your up for it reply to this post or PM me and i will let people know how many we got and hopefully we can have a bit of a get together in a month or two. Gl all and take care...

      Hiya guys, no probs add me to your contact lists on here, or if you prefer i can send my face book page. We are currently playing on a wednesday night, at two locations we have about 6 members at the one and five at the other. Will send you both details of times and buy ins for both, i cant put the league names in as this forum would not like me to advertise other poker sites. The best one is the one i play in and theres a cash game after, it can get a bit brutal from time to time though. Will fill you in on all details when we talk off the forum, feel free to bring friends, our first poker strat only game will be played when we have 18 players min.
      I may even be cheecky and ask these guys if they could send us some goodies when we get going.

      When I visited G Casino Walsall there was a cash game running in the Poker Room which looked lively - that is just 3 motorway junctions (10) up from you.

      One of the security guards from my old uni accommodation works the doors at grosvenor casino on broad st and he said some lad made like 40k in one night! Never been so not sure what it's like. But seen cash games running in Gala by the mailbox. Never played in them but seem fishy...
