2018 Poker 2.0 League Winners – San Diego

The San Diego chapter results for the 2018 Startup Poker 2.0 League Championship are in. Big congratulations to this year's SD member winner, Jeremy Yamaguchi, who finished with 20.425 point. As you can see below, the top three players were separated by just about one point -- so remember, every win matters and landing on 8th place instead of 9th in just one event can [...]

2018 Poker 2.0 League Winners – San Francisco

The San Francisco chapter results for the 2018 Startup Poker 2.0 League Championship are in. This year's SF member winner is Cory Bray with 39 points. Technically, Cory placed second behind our stalwart sponsor, Kellam Nelson from Colliers International.

Event Recap: San Diego, December 2018

December is the month of holiday parties, traveling and running around, so we typically do not host a game.

Thank you to our GoShare Hosts for the space at [...]

Event Recap: Portland, December 2018

Portland, OR was truly a winter wonderland for poker night. Unfortunately in the Pacific Northwest, that means downpours and whipping gusts of wind. That didn't stop our cavalier cohort of card sharks from getting together for the holiday edition of Startup Poker. With everyone in the giving mood, we had one of our biggest pots of the year, and in the end it was Christa [...]

Event Recap: Portland, November 2018

As a warm up to gathering around the table with loved ones to be thankful, the Portland squad gathered around the poker table with fellow cutthroats and complained about their 2 - 7 off suit hand. In the end it was Alex Z. who took home the pot with his patented "bet big because I need to get out of here right now" betting strategy. [...]

Why Every Startup Founder Should Play Poker (1 of 3)

In this series, I’m want to persuade startup founders (all startup founders) that playing poker is not just something you could do but rather that poker is something that you should do. I know -- a bold claim. In this first post, I intend to clear the air and set the record straight about just what poker really is and its power to build relationships [...]
