Texas Hold ‘Em with the River Town Poker Boyz

Many of my readers and friends are aware that a little while back I began playing Texas Hold ‘Em a couple of nights a week.   The River Town Poker Boyz offer games at various locations that are FREE to play and PAY on a winner take all basis.  You can find the locations and details about the games at their link above.

The games actually vary in small ways.  There are “point” games… wherein players play an established amount of weeks in order to earn points by getting to the “final” table. For instance, at Hummers in Aurora, IN, the second game is a “points” game. The top 30 point leaders will sit down in a game for a $1,000.00 pay out.  This game will pay to 4 places. First place is $500.00!! You can learn more about this game and see where Ice stands in points here.

I discovered River Town Poker Boyz thru a flier at one of my regular stops for coffee.  Noting that they hold games in my area … I had to check it out.  I rolled on into Louie’s Place to investigate the situation. “Big Dan” told me he had an open seat and signed me right up.  I had a great time! I’ve been playing ever since.

This Monday night at Hummers was the second time I placed Third at the Final table in the points game. I now hold 21 points and should be 7th on the list (currently waiting for the stats to be updated on their website). Here are a few pics from Monday (click on the pic to enlarge):

I highly recommend taking a break from your work, research and whatevers’ and join us for a great time. Remember, it’s FREE TO PLAY… and players can win cash prizes.  If any of my readers, MYB and other friends find time to visit any of the locations the River Town Poker Boyz hold games … give out a shout to meet me.  I’m always happy to meet my readers and online friends in person.

  2. Update: My points at Hummers were not enough to take me to 7th place as others had also increased their points. I now hold 9th place and hope to score more points in this Monday’s game.

  5. That’s a coke. I drink no more than 2 beers when I go out. The rest of the night is coke or coffee.
