Default Poker Meet Up Trip Report

I'm a member at Pokerchipforum.com. There are several meet ups through out the year. I went to one in Chicago last year and it was a blast. Thought I would give the one in Florida a chance.

The host lives on Ann Maria Island about 5 minutes from the beach.

7 of us stayed with the host. The rest rented local hotel rooms.

Unfortunately the weather was kind of shitty. It was still better than being in Michigan.








We got there Thursday afternoon. The host had prepared spaghetti with hot Italian sausage. Very good. Home made sauce.



After dinner we started a dealers choice/flop based game. We used the TRK Mapes (I think that is what their called. The $5.00 chip is beautiful.

My shitty pictures don't do it justice.



better picture. Starting stacks were 200 for a .25/.50 game. I always elected to buy in for 100. 200 seemed a little unnecessary for me.



It was dealers choice flop games. We played orbit +1 before the next game was called. It was a lot of fun. On THU. night things started off rough for me. Lost my buy in on the third hand. Couldn't get much going. Between card dead and bad decisions it turned into a long night.

THUR. In for 200, out at 155. Could have been worse.

FRI. we hit breakfast at a place called the Rod and Reel on the Pier. Food was good. View was amazing. We also did dinner there that night.





After breakfast we started playing cards again. This time we used a custom Suicide Queen set. Very nice!!

I had a much better outcome at the table on FRI. Here are some random stack/action photo's.





Double Board PLO. I ended up scooping a 200 + pot. I flopped the nuts on one board. Ton of outs on the other board of which I ended up hitting. I'm in the white shirt.



We gambled until about 730 before we broke for dinner. We headed back to the RR Pier.

The fresh catch "Amberjack" was recommended. I got it lightly blackened and light garlic. It came with a mango salsa that was excellent.



After dinner we gambled until about 230 (well I did ended at 230).

In for 100. Out at 680

SAT morning the host and I were up early. He asked if I wanted a quick tour of the beach and then grab some breakfast. Sure, lets go. Sounds like a great way to kick off the tourney.





We ended up with only 13 for the tourney. 100.00 buy in. Pays top three.

Deep stack. Starting stacks 25k. Blinds started at 25/50.





Being that it was a deep stack I tried to avoid any big pots for the first few hours. Didn't make sense to me to get mixed up in any big pots at this time.

After the dinner break (Pulled pork) things picked up.



I ended up building a stack, then donking it off before getting it all in with 7/10 suited vs A/K. I flopped a gut shot straight draw which came on the turn. Then I used that double up to end up finishing 3rd.



SAT I was in for 200 (Tourney and one cash buy in). Out for 200. I did take my 100 cash game buy in up to just over 300 before losing it on a boat over boat in PLO about 3 am.

Introduced to a few new games.

Scrotum: Dealt 5 cards. You decide how many you want to keep and discard the rest. Whatever you keep. You must use with the community board to make your hand. Standard HL board. If you keep 4 cards. You must use all 4 with one card from the board. Crazy game.

Tahoe: You get five cards. You have to use either 2, or all 5. Nothing in between. Standard HL board.

Then we played Big O, O8, SOHE, ect....

Cool trip. Helluva a guy to host you all.

At the risk of sounding like a dick, -- your game sounds very fun, but it isn't Tahoe. Tahoe is a 3-card game where you use 0, 1, or 2 cards with a hold 'em board. Often played Hi/Lo split. I don't want you to buy in to a Tahoe game somewhere and get a surprise.

I assume you didn't bring the wife? Could you photoshop her in to that beach pic?

No wife.

I said the same thing to them about Tahoe. They said they call that game lazy pineapple.

There are meet ups all over the country year round. I met up with 40 people from the forum in Chicago last year

Looks and sounds like a great trip! I am curious to try this game. I just wanna make sure I have it right:

Blinds are posted
5 hole cards to each player
Round of betting
3 card flop
Round of betting
Turn card
Round of betting
River card
Round of betting
Showdown

Is keeping 4 of your down cards the only circumstance in which you are required to use all of your remaining hole cards? Keeping one, two, or three of your hole cards, you can use any combination along with the board? Sounds fun!

Dealt 5 (or 4). You can keep one to all your cards. You discard what you don't want pre flop. However many you keep you must play whether its, 1, 2, 3, 4, or all 5.

Your cards must be displayed in a manner that everyone knows how many cards you kept.

The betting and board cards are done the same as HL. Three flop cards, turn, and river.

weird game. I only played one orbit of it. I'm definitely interested in trying it again.

The big hand I was mixed up in I was dealt 8, 8, 8, x, x. I kept the three 8's.

Flop brought a shit board. Opponent kept 4 cards and bet out. I called. The turn paired the king giving me a FH. He bet pot. I called. River was garbage. He bet 3/4 pot. I called.

He had 4 cards to a straight. He used one community card to make his straight. I had 8's full of K's.

I guess at the other table there was a straight flush over quads. Dude kept 4 q's and lost.

The trip was a blast. Ate well. Even made some loot. I'll take it. It was a solid group of guys.

There are meet ups in Atlanta, WI, Denver, ME, and Chicago coming up through out the year. WI and CHI are driving distance so I'll be hitting those for sure.

I went to the one in CHI last year. 40 people from the forum came out for this.
