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 [...]

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. However over the last 11 months we realized just how many small startups are thriving in San Diego, some with remote teams, or teams of 1 and 2, so we decided to host a holiday game! Thank you to our GoShare Hosts for the space at [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, November 2018

This month's game was early this month! Held by Zipdev over at DeskHub, and it’s quickly becoming a favorite location with over 25 people signing and 17 playing poker! We love having you come for drinks and dinner so even if the game itself isn’t your thing the people and conversation are the real reason to come! So keep coming! This month we had some [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, October 2018

We missed a lot of you this month at Founders Poker, but a committed bunch made the trek up to Carlsbad for a North County game. We host a game in North County once a quarter to ensure we are including the entire community. If you're in the downtown area we highly suggest finding some car pool buddies and joining us for the next one. [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, August 2018

Poker was hosted this month at the lovely Hera Hub in Sorrento Valley with special guest Silvia Mah! I think we all walked away from last night wondering just how does Silvia do everything she does. San Diego and the world is so lucky to have individuals like her, from angel investing, proving her father wrong, volunteering abroad and instilling those values in her children, [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, July 2018

It’s the final table and it’s down to the final 3. “How many hands are left to go, is this my one?” you think to yourself. You decide to play, not a great hand but winnable, you don’t have many chips left, should I go all in this hand? The Flop leaves you with a pair (high card) so you bet, the chip leader decides [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, June 2018

This month we were back at the Vine! They moved to UTC and are located equally inconveniently for both North County and Downtown founders, however, it’s worth it. The Vine has a tremendous space for founders both for poker or to work out of! We were lucky to have one of the top accelerators in the country in attendance. We almost didn’t make it out [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, May 2018

Ladies for the Win! This month we were at 101 W Broadway, graciously hosted by GoShare.

It set the stage for a fun night! Male or Female [...]
