The July edition of Silicon Valley Startup Poker was a hit!

Thanks to Armory for hosting us in their beautiful offices in downtown San Mateo. And thanks, as always, to our sponsors WSGR and Colliers who generously provide the food, drink, and prizes – your continuing support for founders is deeply appreciated.

A common thread in the founders at this event was long-distance relationships. It turned out that many of us have partially or fully distributed teams, and were able to trade successful strategies for staying close; in attendance was the founder of, a video conferencing tool that makes remote collaboration easier; and two players

even compared notes on how they were navigating the U.S. visa application process with their spouses.

Congrats to our winners:
1. Ben P.
2. Will H.
3. Eugene O.

Thanks to everyone who played! See you next month!
