Re: Official EF Poker Thread

I'm wondering if there isn't some way to organize this by location and buy-in? I've waded through a couple of pages of this, and come to a number of conclusions.

1. One member seems to be trying to do a lot of the work of getting people together.

2. I still can't tell if anyone has successfully gotten together for poker.

3. Playing in public is definitely NOT for me. Too risky for so many reasons. Has anyone actually done this?

4. Different people are definitely going to be comfortable with different stakes. 50 Francs is okay for me, 100 is pushing it. However on any given evening I may be looking to play for more than usual. Perhaps anyone wishing to host could post place/time/stakes/format and number wished/needed? First come first serve as far as sign-up?

For example: [Poker][Zurich][date and time] 4 looking for up to 5 more for Texas Hold-em tourney, 50CHF buy-in. Any other data such as 1st: 70%, 2nd: 25% 3rd: 5%. Data on whether bringing poker chips, snacks, booze is expected to be shared responsibility etc.

Perhaps there should be some general rules for all games initiated through the site as well such as table stakes and the cards speak for themselves? I suggest this only because while it seems most here seem to be of average competitiveness, you never know when someone will come along who takes things too far.

Just some suggestions. If things are working as is I'd be interested to know and would appreciate someone giving me the heads up on how I can join a game sometime.

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

I also am still looking for a regular game in Zürich. I now live in Pfäffikon (SZ) and would be happy to put something on, let's say on a Friday night, but people would have to travel 30mins from Zurich.
Apart from that I suggest looking at pokerfreunde.ch for the tournement schedule. They have a homegame finder too, but it has not worked for me so far..

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

There are a few issues with what you have mentioned Stauff.

We cannot make a game with cash involved as it is illegal in Switzerland. This means that any game has to be arranged a little bit differently and quitely.

We did in the end get a game together but was only 6 people if I remember rightly.

There are plenty of games around if you look in the right places and speak with the right people.

Also a couple of good sites are:

http://www.swiss-pokerlounge.ch/

http://www.rugpoker.ch/taeglichepokerturniere.html

Because it is so popular, you will find it hard to get into home games here as most are always full. Perhaps hosting one yourself might introduce you to some players...

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

I've played here too.

http://pokerpalace.ch/

I don't really like it that much (organisation not great so can wait a long time for a game) and it is purely small / midsize tourney and SNGs, but it is easy enough to get to. I here also they are opening something up in the Old Town too.

I can't believe my bad luck, that I end up living 5 mins from a casino myself, only for it not to offer Poker... Sheesh.

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

Hi All,
I went to a nice poker tournament on Friday hosted by www.pokerpalace.ch

It was a nicely run game, fairly friendly and in a good location, I would recommend it to other people. There was 70 people there, I came 11th but went out with the better hand so not too upset.

This one was CHF100 buy in but there are smaller games as well.
I found it on www.buy-in.ch which shows all the local games.

I just wanted to share the information in case anyone out there would like to find a nice place to play at a good level. Im sure ill go again.
