    Well, the Casino has generally been empty, so I thought this might be a good place for people to find others to play with, especially in games that are not solo! Post times you might be interested in playing or perhaps organize an ongoing weekly event!

    I know these ideas have been floated ... but, I have a bit of an addicative nature ...


    If we are going to set up regular gaming, we need to be able to buy in. I think a PayPal link that allows me to buy credits is needed. I would love to have a regular (or semi Regular) Thursday night (or whenever) Texas Holdem match. But, to have the participants buy in at 5 bucks a seat (or whatever) for 500 credits.

    Also, in the Jacks or Better, Andy, what is the award ratio? It seems to be a bit higher than a 100% payout (even if I am not making all the right plays, and thus losing).

    It's not really a easy thing to calculate for that one as choice matters a lot, it should be very near 100% though, which was what I wanted on all the games.

    Well, after I blew through the 500 credits you allotted us all when we began, I found the 'wizard of odds' web site. A little time reading there, and quite a bit of time playing, I am making better choices on my Jacks or Better game.

    Comparing the payouts, it looks like you pay a bit higher than they do over there.

    I think they do. I just checked them out recently.

    Also, Andrew, while playing a bit of Texas Holdem, I ran into a problem. Right after the flop my partner checked, but I did not have the chance to check/bet. Went immediately to the next card. Something you could look at perhaps? Only happened once. Not a huge concern, but maybe something to look into.

    I've been given all this casion money on this site. I don't gamble so if there's any way to transfer it to anyone let me know and I'll gladly hand it over.

    If you go to the casino there's an option on the bottom of the page that says transfer cash to another member, or something like that, you can give your money to whoever you wish

    I would like to have a regular (or semi Regular) Friday night Texas Holdem match around 9 Est, but whatever works for anyone else, I'm ok with that.
    Just post here the date and time, I will pop in and play.

    Good idea! Since I don't see the sense on hanging onto 'cash' I won't use, I've transferred the whole lot to another member!

    I would suggest "Kreth." Very short, easy to type in.

    Well I wonder if this is like an e-mail forwarder? I mean all unknown e-mails going to one location. This could also be done with the money, so if someone mistyped, then a peson could get even more. ;)
