Hey I'm Thinking

So,what do you do when your opponent keeps betting and you are on a flush draw after the flop? If the pot odds are right, stick with it but beware if you hit a king high flush, your opponent may be bluffing or she may have the ace high flush. That was just one of the exciting hands played on Poker Pros night at the loft this past Friday night......come join us for our April event, check back here for the dates.

Amateur Night Lessons

Small but good group last night.......we talked about poker and practiced, checking, folding and raiseing, playing position, counting outs and picking up on tells and general poker etiquette....Jennifer won the tournament, she was lucky with her full houses! But Claire is going to be a force to be dealt with in the future. If you don't know how to play Texas Hold Em Poker then come to Amateur night and soon you will be playing with the Rogue Women Poker for home games in Palm…

2010 Women's WSOP Event at the Rio

Well, I am back from Vegas and I need a vacation from my vacation.....we had a blast however! We ate and drank well, my friends from high school joined in the fun and Donna was THE most supportive person a poker player could hope for.....

I started by playing in the LIPS tournament at the Golden Nugget on Thur for a warm up to my biggest tournament ever. There were a couple hundred women playing in this Texas Hold Em tournament and I was…

Beach Blanket Hold Em

14 players showed up at my friend Todd's house at the beach and only 3 were women but when the tournament was done it was the 3 women in first, second and third place (yours truely)! Is that because we had superior math minds, more patience, suberb intuition or was it that we drank less, didn't care about the cash game to follow, and were LUCKY!

Thanks to Todd for hosting......see you boys when I get back from Vegas!

Who says you shouldn't play a 5 and a 3 as hole cards......

The beauty of poker is it keeps you thinking all the time......sometimes you are calulating your outs or the pot odds and other times you are reading your opponents or trying to decide if you should take a chance on cards that the experts say are no good.......

We had a full table of experienced players at the last poker pros night and the stacks went up and down in front of each player for hours and then our newest member Sin and Ink decides to play her 5 and 3 hole…

Whatta Friday Night

We had 9 players this past Friday night at the loft and it was a wild toad was a hard fought tournament but the top 3 were Sue, Gabrielle and Donna! For those of you who are new, we play a tournament style game at our poker nights because it is one amount to enter and you can play until you get knocked out. Perhaps at a later date when our groups are more established in each geographic area, we can move to a limit ring game or if you have an interest in hosting different type of… Continue

Let's Get This Party Started.....its 2010

Hello Everyone,

i am back from SoCal where i played in the local Casino's daily No Limit Texas Hold Em tournament 6 or 7 times. I won first place once and 4th place once.....the rest of the time I either got knocked out early or finished in the middle of the pack. I do this when I am on vacation so I can judge the level of my skill at the game.....Most people who play at these small casinos are regulars and are pretty good. My biggest challenge was when I tried to hone my skill at… Continue

Amateur Night

We held an Amateur night in July and we thank our new members who attended and were our test subjects. I think everyone learned a lot. It is difficult when there are varying levels of players so in the future we are going to have just one trainer and we will start with the basics. Since everyone wants to try their new skills, we will have one hour of training and then a $5 buy in tournament for just the newbies.

There will be a Rogue Women Poker amateur night once per month starting… Continue

Birthday Poker Marathon

These days we are all staying home more so when I was asked what I wanted for my birthday this year, I said I'd love to play poker with all of my friends.

So this past Friday night, my business partner Jackie and her gf Michele hosted a party of 9 at their house.....first we feasted on fish, chicken and salad, had a few toasts, then settled down to play some Texas Hold Em.....then it happened, a Royal Flush came on the river. Not for me mind you but in all the years I have been playing, I… Continue

Watch Out for the "Gee, I just learned to play poker" players!

The Rogue Women Poker night at the Big House in Noe Valley was a big sucess. We had two new first timers at one of our events.....welcome Amanda and Margaret. And for being new at RWP and at Texas Hold Em, they did very well in the early going.....racking up big stacks and bullying the table with their agressive betting (and some bluffing). But the patient old dogs held out for second and third place and Virginia danced and grooved her way to a first place win! Evidently the key to winning is… Continue

Bigest Home Game Turnout Yet!

We crammed 12 players into the Bernal Heights tournament last Friday night (April 24th) for our biggest home game yet. We had players from Marin, the East Bay and the South South South Bay as well as the usual San Francisco suspects.

It is apparant that some players skills are improving and yet still the 3 time rookie player can still take home the biggest prize and 1st place....that spot was taken by Bobbi (see her pic in the member section-she is the one with the ears flapping in… Continue

A little afternoon poker

Played a two table 10+1 SNG and a five table 10+1 SNG on Full Tilt while doing some phone work today. Came in 6th on the larger game for 23.00. I have an old account on PokerStars and played some micro stakes cash NLHE and LHE.

For SNGs, 10.00 seems about right. I do best at MTT with 18-45 players.
