Some players did not miss a game while others just joined in for the evening. Anyone is welcome to join any time during the season.

Our group challenges internet players to try a game against real players at the table. We can teach you to shuffle real cards, deal, bet with real chips, and interact with real people, not just a computer screen. See if you have a poker face or will you give your opponent a look into your eyes and thoughts and let him win.
