What you'll do
Experience Plan: - 7:30pm - 8pm: Arrival and settle in + Texas Hold'em Poker crash course (if necessary). Guests are provided with their free welcome drink (see options in inclusions section) and I set them up with everything they need for their own beverages. If anyone needs a quick lesson on how to play the game, I would be happy to help (English, French or Spanish) and also provide printed reference guides for the order of winning hands. If guests want to order food, I can coordinate the delivery time and set them up with plates and cutlery as needed. - 8pm - 11pm: Texas Hold'em Poker with 5,000 in chips, blinds start at 25/50 and double every 25 mins (timer is run by the host, with a 5-minute warning); Stats will be kept of all the hands played and the winners, and all guests have the choice of receiving the results by email. The winner of the game will be the player who successfully eliminates all other players, and if this doesn't happen by 11pm, the remaining players get to the Sudden-death Stage. - 11pm - 11:30pm: Sudden-death Stage (if necessary), blinds double every 8 minutes, person with the most chips at the end is declared the winner.
Hi there, I’ve been playing poker and hosting friendly games for the past 10 years here in Montreal. In the last year, I’ve set up a dedicated poker room in my home, and I had a blast doing it! I designed and built a custom table & playing surface, added some unique art and a bar area, and I’ve gotten great feedback from everyone that’s played here. I pride myself on being a great host when friends and family visit my home, and you, as Airbnb guests will get the same treatment. I can adjust the experience to each group’s needs, feel free to ask!
