"Home poker games are a great way to meet people...

                                                     ...and relieve them of their money"

Not everybody lives in London (well, it would get a bit crowded) and finding a good home poker game outside of our Nation's glorious capital isn't the easiest thing in the World. I remember once trying to find a home poker game in Abergavenny and getting flashbacks of that bloke trawling his local Red Light District getting slapped in the chops every 5 minutes asking if anyone 'did' Pot Noodle. I hate to think of you lot going through that, so instead of watching the finals of 'American Idol' tonight I thought I'd knock up this little section of the site to spare your red cheeks and shoe leather! You're bloody welcome.


Felixstowe Poker - Steve Ridley's new poker group in sunny Felixstowe. If you're looking for a friendly home poker game where having a laugh is almost as important as winning the big pots, then this would be the place for you.
Most of the group come from the surrounding area (Ipswich and Colchester).

Ipswich Poker - home game site based in Ipswich, run by Cat ‘Short Stack’ Ridley.. Yes, they play poker in Ipswich. Their website's a rather nice shade of green too. Friendly players, small stakes, big ears.

Stoke Poker - 'The home of Poker in Stoke on Trent'. Initially (back in August 2004) this website was just set up to gather details of anyone who might be interested in playing live poker regularly in and around Stoke, but it's rapidly transmogrified into a very slick poker website. They play online too. Run by Chris Newman.

Windrush Valley Card Club - do you live in the Cotswolds and play poker? Chances are you've already heard of this one then, but if you're new to the area and are looking for a game check out Jason's site. It ain't half bad.

Let's hope they don't see all the nasty things I've said about Barrow, Dalton, Walney and the like, or I'll have to go into bloody hiding. They also run Cumbrian Poker.

Slough Palace - ah, Slough. Home of the humble Mars Bar, Herbalife and of course David Brent. Also, funnily enough, home of 'The Slough Palace' Friday night game, run by Mel Lofthouse and Eugene Cummins. If you’re looking for a friendly home game in Berkshire with a high standard of play you can stop looking – you’ve found it (n.b.

With members from Bristol, Cheltenham, Chippenham, Bath and Weston and one of the friendliest message boards and busiest event schedules I've seen in a long time this is a great little community of poker players, and well worth a looksee. Recommended, even if you're from as far afield as 'London Village'!
