re: Where to play poker in France ? (LIVE POKER)

hy
planing on going to ACF(Aviation Club de France Paris) at the end of the month and I heard there are some changes......so if there is anyone who has been there in 2008 pls if u are so kind to help me

1.Is it true that is now 100 euro membership tax?(so I pay 100 euro when I get there and I can play until the end of the year?)
2.Is it true that ACF is now a non smoking area?
3.What are the max buyins for 2/4? , 5/5? and 5/10?(dont care about minimum)
4.Are the games soft or not at these stakes?
5.The games are running non-stop or...?(NL holdem only)
6.Drinks are free?

I'm asking all this because what I hear from friends that have been there last year is one thing and what I read on the ACF official website is another thing.

1. Unless they changed their policy you don't need to be member to enter & play
2. Yes
3. No idea
4. Hopefully there are lot of gamblers and bad players here
5. It's open 24/24 but you may not find games in the morning.
6. No idea

1 - 100€ to be member for the year, and it give you the right to go 2 times to the excellent restaurant for free
3 - no maximum, it's no limit baby
5 - 2/2 and 2/4 tables are always open
6 - soft drink are free if you are at the table, just don't forget to tip 2€

1 - Tips are not mandatory, I only give it if the pot is realy huge or I'm in big winning session

2 - under 18 you are not allowed to put a toe in card room

3 - there are always 1 or 2 shark at table but other are giving money away

I have heard(and read on the ACF official website) that the rake is HUGE.
I'm asking the people that have been there(this year if possible)....can u still go there and make money playing poker with rake,food,drinks,hotel and other expenses?

re: Where to play poker in France ? (LIVE POKER)

hi, i am in paris now until july 15

i want to play but i cant pay 100e to play at the ACF (i have only $500 to play with), and the other clubs seem smaller and less friendly to foreigners. so, i dont know what to do. if someone could help me out that would be very much appreciated

does anyone want to meet, play some poker, discuss some poker, etc?

thank you

There used to be the "cercle des pyrénées" in Toulouse but I think they closed.

I suggest you become a member of this excellent forum
http://www.limpers.com/

They'll know the nearest casino.

re: Where to play poker in France ? (LIVE POKER)

Hi all,

Tomorrow i'm leaving to Paris for the weekend with a couple of friends with the intension to play poker...of course...
We've been to the Aviation last october and didn't pay any fee. Does anyone know if we have to pay the €100 now or does our (free) "membership" still counts, since it's been less than a year we were in the club?

Thanks

re: Where to play poker in France ? (LIVE POKER)

I'll be going to Paris Sep 2-7th. I'm planning on playing at the Aviation Club. Thanks for all the info in this thread. I'll guess I'll have to pay the 100E to play.

Any 2+2ers play there on a regular basis? Would be cool to meet some of you.

The rake are huge because there is a bad beat jackpot.
You can still make money playing there because the level is terrible but I suggest you to don't tips (too much) if you want to make descent profit.

I sometimes play at the Aviation Club de France (ACF) and I had to pay the 100€ but maybe if you told them that you're just there for a few days, they can make an exception.

I heard that they did that before but that's not sure that they still do it because it's kind of risky for them.

re: Where to play poker in France ? (LIVE POKER)

I've played at ACF twice now. The rake is just brutal. 5% uncapped at lower games, and 25E PER HOUR at 5/5. The games are good, but that rake is unreal. Some players are incredibly loud and obnoxious, maybe even worse than in Los Angeles.

What is the dressing code for the casino?
If I dont have a car how do I get there?
I speak absolutely no french, will that be an issue?

To my small knowledge there is no poker room in Monaco or Nice, you'll have to find private games if you want to play live.
rivierapokerclub.free.fr/ This is an amateur site which i presume organize private games.

I don't live in Toulouse but i found on the website some intel !

"De 10h à 19h (dernier départ du Casino Théâtre à 18h30), tous les jours, elle dessert les arrêts Paul Feugas (St Michel) et Esquirol et vous offre ainsi l'accès direct entre le centre ville et le Casino Théâtre.

Passage toutes les 30 minutes
"

A free ride bus is on everyday from the center of the city.

Call them for more info : 05 61 333 777

But should the basic words for poker, that's all you need to play no ?
