- Learn how to Play Texas Hold'em with professional poker
player Adam Stemple on Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Gaming Room.
You've seen it on TV and the internet but how do you actually

limited number of people who can sit at the table. If you want to
be at the table to learn this strategic game please email

and stand around the table. This is not a Hold'em tournament
but a how-to play workshop.
