Well, ofcourse it's not for free But for sure it wouldn't be as expensive as in casinos - I know, I worked there and saw how much rake they take. So it would be a service on a professional level, but very cheap. I wouldn't do it for living, but because I miss it sometimes and I have a lot of free time.

Well maybe someone very serious about it will get back... but I doubt anyone will unless it's a high stakes game (CHF100.- sit n go and upwards), which unfortunately you won't find on here.

If you want to play and deal, then it's a different story of course, you get a chance to win + socialise + practice your dealing

You are right...
Well anyway, my boyfriend keeps telling me I should leave those days behind. So it's better this way

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

Hello all,

I would love to join a game if anyone has a spare seat that needs a lively soul. Mainly looking for a social time with some good poker to be played. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi, I'll be moving to Zurich in January and would love to hear more or be pm-ed by anyone who's organizing or otherwise knows of poker games - I'm pretty much a beginner but eager to learn!

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

New to the Zug area, but would love to join a group who play semi regularly i.e. Once a month or so. Got some experience though haven't played in awhile.

There's a Wednesday night game running, you just have to find the right person to ask ;-)

Was thinking of hosting too, I live in Seebach Zurich.

Re: Poker Thread

I don't think there is a need to create a new thread. The problem has always been that many people say they are interested, however the levels of skill, levels of money people want to play with and the commitment never really match up.


Whenever I have asked if anyone wants to play and actually offer a day at my place, excuses and reasons normally come out why people cant come.

I have a semi regular game at my place, normally falls on a Friday and sometimes Saturday. We have our regular players and generally its very hard for me to offer spaces as so many people are also on the waiting list.

I suggest if you want to get a game going, someone offer their place and set a date/event or doodle for people to reply yes or no and get it going.

I don't think Wednesdays will ever fall on a Friday or Saturday

Re: Poker Thread

Hi. A couple of new players in Basel. My partner and I moved to Basel recently and am are keen to get back to playing some semi-/regular poker.

It seems like most of the poker-ing is being done in ZH - anyone know of anything going on in BS (other than the GrandCasino)? We have both been playing for 4-5yrs at a moderate level. Happy to play socially as well as at a slightly more serious level.

Please include us on the list and hopefully we can get something going in Basel. Thanks!

Re: Poker Thread

Without trawling through all the threads here I was trying to find out if there are ever some games in the Bern area? Small money ones preferred
