Learn To Play Poker With 97.3 The Game’s John Lund – October 9th

Right now is the best time to be a poker player. Poker fever is running high. Poker is among the most popular card games in the world. New players are entering into the game every day in large numbers. As a result the coverage of poker on television in books and online-gaming brings more players to the game everyday. This is among the reasons why we are seeing casinos and cardrooms popping up throughout the state of California and all over the country for that matter. But how does one learn to play poker and get up to speed quickly so that you feel comfortable playing in a cardroom or casino with real people of all ages at varying levels of skill all vying to win some cold hard cash? Let’s face it Youtube training videos can only take you so far.

Well now here’s your chance. California Grand Casino located in Pacheco along with 95.7 The Game’s John Lund are hosting a free Learn to Play Poker session on Thursday October 9th from 6p-8p. We are going to teach the first 20 players who sign up how to play the game of poker. It’s easy it’s fun and there’s no risk!

To make Learn to Play Poker at Cal Grand fun for all we are offering some fabulous door prizes to the first 20 people who sign up. Some of the prizes include Raiders tickets, Stanford football tickets, movie theater tickets, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk tickets, and more. Free food and non-alcoholic drinks are included plus the first 20 players to sign up will receive a coupon for $100 in FREE Match Play chips to be used at a future visit-pretty good deal right?

It takes knowledge, skill and practice to become a good poker player. But we all had to start somewhere: the beginning. It can be intimidating for some to walk into a casino or cardroom with rusty poker skills from days gone by or even worse little playing experience. Understandable! Poker instruction from a dealer is one of the very best and quickest ways to pick up the game or fine-tune your strategy. At Cal Grand you will have the unique opportunity to be taught by one of our most popular players and trainers David Okimoto or Oki as we affectionately refer to him (also our resident Blog Writer so check out his recent stories about becoming a professional poker player).

The key is to take that first step to learning the basics of poker. Then test your ability by playing a variety of poker formats such as Hold’Em or Omaha, or eventually tournaments. This will speed up and help improve your poker game. Cal Grand offers a weekly Sunday Texas Hold’em tournament starting at 10:30 and a High Hands starting at 8am.

We hope to see you Thursday October 9th from 6p-8p at our Learn to Play Poker night at California Grand Casino. Come watch the National Division Playoff games on anyone of our 22 big screen TV’s, enjoy some free food and drinks, and discover why poker is one of the most popular card games in the world.

And remember,the first 20 to sign up at the California Grand Casino will receive a seat at the Learn to Play Poker table. Not interested in Poker? Check out the bay areas best Baccarat, Pai Gow, and Hot Action Blackjack tables!
