Indonesian Couple says hi!

Postby Jakartaguy » Sun Aug 15, 2010 7:16 pm

Hi everyone! I found this site by googling "poker in Singapore" and became a member when I was hoping some of you guys/girls could help us out.

Background. My wife and I will be coming to singapore on 24 october (yes, it's still a long way away) and would like to play poker.

Questions:
- are home games legal in Singapore? No gambling is allowed here in Indonesia. You can play cards at home but if there is money involved you can get arrested.
- at the home games, are men and women allowed? Or is it "boys only" "girls only" games?
- does the new casino have poker tables?

Okay, looking forward to your replies, and thanks for taking the time.

Hi there , welcome to singapore

There has been instances of games being raided so if u play in raked games , there is a chance to be raided.
You can try your luck @ the meetup sections or host your own game and post your meetup here too
As far as i know , there are no gender restrictions in most home games .
The casinos should only have progressive texas holdem , not the one that we play but played vs banker

Home games are legal as long the host doesn't (personally) profits from it as a business (it taking comission/raking). This is standard among most countries, not just singapore.

- at the home games, are men and women allowed? Or is it "boys only" "girls only" games?
Both are welcomed at most (if not all) games.

- does the new casino have poker tables?
Yes they do (physically exists)... but no poker games running.

However you may wish to join us when we start running poker tournaments on MV Leisure viewtopic.php?f=116&p=24914#p24914 where the casino has proper poker games running. (Ironically in Indonesia waters).
