Wasn't sure where I should put this thread, this seems like a good spot.

Anyways, I was playing poker, and for the first time ever, the make a club feature was working, so I went into it and messed around.

It's all free (we'll be playing with fake money). PokerStars is a good one, I've played at a few over the years and it's my personal favourite.

For those interested, here's what to do:

1) If you don't already have it, download PokerStars.
2) Set up your account. Very easy to do, no different then registering anywhere else. One thing, if you're finnicky about people knowing where your from (city), enter something gibberish. It shows up on the club option, and it wouldn't let me disable that. You can set up your whole account with nonsense, just need to use a valid email address (as long as you only ever played with fake money, if you ever play with real money you'd need real info, but that won't be something we do).
3) Open the main poker lobby, then click on the Home Games tab.
4) Click the 'Join a Poker Club' button.
5) Enter the Club ID number: 785615
6) Enter the Invitation Code: 4815162342
7) Post here saying you have done so, I need to approve you to join the club (for some reason... not sure why you having the invitation code isn't enough but whatever).

I can set up tables based on what people want, right now there's just 2, a 9 person table, low stakes, No-Limit Texas Hold'Em, and the same, but heads up (meaning 2 people).

For those who don't know how to play, most variants of poker are relatively simple, hold'em is probably the one you know if you know any (or 5 card stud). I won't bother linking a guide about how to play, but if you're interested and don't know how to play, a quick search will give you plenty of good guides (there is one for all variants right on the pokerstars site).

If we got people playing, I was thinking weekly tournaments (or about that anyways) could be fun. Could always set up multiples for those in various time zones/with different time preferences.

And yes... this probably means Poker Mafia in the not-so-distant future if there's interest in this.

It saddens me that this thread has 33 views and no responses.

I'll play, but I don't want to bother downloading PS if nobody else is playing. I used to have PS downloaded back when real poker was legal over the internet (about four years ago, I lost 2000 dollars in about a 3 month period...I'm awesome), but don't anymore.

Does nobody on RM know how to play poker? Derp

Oh ya... Americans aren't even allowed to play for real money now are they? It's not something I do a lot anyways, but it is nice for at least not having (as many) idiots as you get in fake money games.

I'd love to join this, but I figure I'll end up in the wrong time zone again, a la Uno.

You have claimed the position as Timmers girl? He's married, his wife might not like that.
