I do enjoy playing in the league! Varying skill levels among the players and playing literally over one hundred games in a season helps me learn how to play Hold’Em and (hopefully), improve my own game. I started playing poker for the 1st time ever myself with this League about 2 years ago. I have played World Tavern also since starting but generally leave after a short stint as it just isn’t as enjoyable for me, I’ll leave it at that. I enjoy seeing the people in the league, yeah, some can be “quirky” at times but I’m sure they feel the same towards me, overall good people from all walks of life who have a common interest in playing cards. It doesn’t hurt to win some cash and/or gift certificates along the way, I believe I’ve won well over $500 playing in the bars this past season and we’re not done yet. VIP discounts; I use them often both at and away from poker nights Rudy’s, West Park and now Ginza (wife used it there on the day after Ginza’s membership was announced). I also enjoy the giving aspect of the charity and “add ons” such as bring a toy for bonus chips etc. as these items go to good causes and I can play poker while doing a little something for somebody local and in some type of need. A cure for Keegan is another example. So yeah, I’m kind of addicted to poker and the league at this point. So good games, good and varying venues, great people and TDs (I’ll leave myself out of that description as a novice TD, and yes, I got involved enough, and felt strong enough that this is a good operation, to become a TD which was not my plan!), great prizes including championships with cash prizes and now the Bar Poker Open involvement as well as WSOP Cherokee based prizes and considerations. There’s more such as the VIP tournament etc., but I think you get my take on League poker and the community of regulars and new players that make it what it is.
