Our first Silicon Valley Founders Poker of 2019 was hosted by Armory in downtown San Mateo. Our sincerest thanks to Armory, and our sponsors WSGR and Colliers, for their continued support of founders. We couldn’t do this without you.

We had a great turnout this evening with players braving the rain to come in from all parts of the Bay Area. It was also our pleasure to welcome Renee and Darryl of DonationMatch from Startup Haven’s San Diego chapter, who gave us a serious run for our money :slightly_smiling_face: It was great to see everyone connecting in informal breakout sessions throughout the night. The highlight this evening was probably Vic’s very personable Jack Russell Terrier, Clark. Fun fact about Clark: he ran a half marathon, which is much more than I can say for myself!

It’s not often we color everyone up to the 10k chips, but this was one of those nights. We went deep into the blind levels with Meetul and Chen-Ping battling through several rounds, but Meetul finally caught a good run of cards, and took home the win.

Thanks for coming out, everyone!
