Event Recap: San Diego, February 2018

The February 2018 San Diego Startup Poker event was hosted at The Vine in UTC (Irvine Company Co-Working). It's a great new space in the middle of the city for young companies to start their empires. It was a good turnout for early in the year, as we saw some faces that rarely make an appearance. Emily Rotolo from Simple Forms took home gold (well [...]

Event Recap: Seattle, January 2018

What a night! Despite an historic traffic jam in Seattle that left us with a record number of no-shows, we still had a full house... and then some. Every seat was filled and the overflow crowd enjoyed the awesome Thai food, brilliant Hand of God wines and a stellar group of the best and brightest of the Seattle startup ecosystem. Special thanks to our special [...]

Event Recap: Silicon Valley, January 2018

We returned to the Hacker Dojo for our January event. It was great to see some new faces, including a regular from the Seattle chapter in town for meetings. Remarkably, despite a ton of action, everyone managed to hold onto their chips deep into the tournament - we didn’t count a single rebuy! A big thank you to all of our sponsors for supporting the [...]

Event Recap: Los Angeles, January 2018

It's official -- Los Angeles has a Startup Haven chapter! The launch event was an intimate affair but what a great start! Having spent the last decade running events of 30 - 60 founders and investors in Seattle, I forgot how great it was to tuck in with a small group. Big thanks to WSGR for sponsoring all the food and drink and to The [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, January 2018

Will Caldwell & Dizzle/SnapNHD hosted Startup Poker in January. They recently moved into a beautiful office in La Jolla with a great view of the Ocean and the San Diego sunset. There were some new faces to the game, with some really cool businesses being ran in San Diego, from a back-of-house e-commerce platform, to an app that connects you to people in town that have similar [...]

Event Recap: San Francisco, December 2017

  Pulling off a 40-person poker event requiring a 5-hour commitment during the holiday party season in a city swimming in holiday parties is tough. So we tried something different this year in the Bay Area -- pub night. And it was a blast. Not quite a full pitcher of beer each, but not far from it. Turns out that great conversations on a beautiful [...]

Event Recap: Seattle, December 2017

I can never predict in advance whether a holiday event will be a full house or an 'intimate' gathering. This year it was full house -- every poker seat was filled and then some. Adding to the festivities, we had Rounders streaming in the background. One word: Oreos. We also debuted the new Poker 2.0 tshirts, giving one away to anyone who hit a high [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, November 2017

Startup Poker 2.0 went off without a hitch this November at the Portfolium Headquarters. Wine, Beer, and Thai food were flowing along side some really fun poker. It was really good to see some new faces this past month at the event, and we're planning a really big 2018 kick off at the University Club, with a special guest (more to come in the invite). Congratulations [...]

Event Recap: Silicon Valley, November 2017

Hacker Dojo hosted our Silicon Valley game this month. As a former Dojo member myself, it was great to see the hacker spirit going strong at the awesome new space in Santa Clara. We appreciate the Dojo's hospitality, and the support of all our sponsors - we couldn't do this without you. The downpour and resulting traffic made this game an intimate affair with only [...]
