GENERAL TABLE CONDUCT

My vision is that we all raise the level of our play so we all can go out and win elsewhere!

The stakes are low so it's ok to get angry in a hand and be on tilt for a little bit.....
and you can call someone a donkey or question their poker play...But do not harp on it, and no negative personal commentary outside the play please...

If you act like a big pain you will be given a long winded boring talking to by me...And, if it continues you will not be invited back....

Politics, religion, sports discussions ARE ALLOWED at the table, so long as they do not slow up play!
Anyone disagrees with my musical tastes, is welcome to sing....But soccer chants, and national anthem singing, i will encourage everyone to boo and hiss at...
