We held the February edition of Silicon Valley Founders Poker at Nordic Innovation House in downtown Palo Alto. Thanks for always being such great hosts, NIH! Thanks also to our sponsors, WSGR and Colliers, for their continued support – we couldn’t do this without you.

Consensus around the table was that Oakland would overtake Silicon Valley as a startup hub in the next 10 years. The cost of living, ease of transportation, and growth potential are all big draws. Maybe a Founders Poker Oakland is in the cards in the not-too-distant future?

Congrats to Chris for taking third, Chen-Ping for coming in second for the second month in a row, and Will for going home with another win! And thanks to everyone who made it out. See you all next month!
