(17) PLAYERS LEAVING - 30 Minutes Max!












What’s with the Hitmen?

  • Long story short, John played on teams called The Hitmen. The Hitmen were a fantastic organization to belong to. We had won 5 championships and were quite successful. Gary Slavin had done the original artwork of Tommy Gunns, and John created his custom set of chips with him.

How long has Hitmen Poker been running?

  • Over 10 years now. It started in August of 2007. John had been invited to play at the Lager Cup and there was a poker tournament. He got the idea to host his own tournaments at home. So with a bed sheet and a glass table, along with Las Vegas plastic chips, Hitmen Poker was born.

How good are the players?

  • I’m proud to say that we have a great range. There is no one person who wins every time. 

What types of poker do you play?

  • No Limit Hold'Em. 

Are your games open to just anyone? How do I get invited?

  • Hell no. You must be invited to play. After that you can register to be a member. You must know someone at the game that can vouch for you.

Do I have to register?

  • Yes. I use an invite system to send out game invites that only uses email addresses.

What are the ways I can pay to play?

  • (1) Interac - Email address is in the rules. Must pay by Wed @ 8pm, the week of the game.

  • (2) Cash - Don’t forget, pay 15 minutes before the start time and get a 5% bonus.

Do you serve food and drink?

  • Yes. Hot Dogs and Sodas are the staple. We usually add a veggie tray, cheese and cracker tray, and possibly a stew, soup or chili. The cost of $5 per person comes from the buy ins.

What is with the $10 taken from the pool?

  • This builds the pot for the main event. Each player pays it once per game. There are 3 free rolls that come from the Main Event Pool.

There are T.V’s in the game room, who controls what is on?

  • If the Habs or Canucks are on TV, it’s almost guaranteed to be on.

  • The last game of any major sports championship game will most likely be on.

How do I get invited back?

  • Best answers;

    • Don’t be an asshole. 

    • Don’t put food or drinks on the tables … EVER!

    • Play nice with others. 

    • Don’t slow play.

    • Know the game.

    • Engage in the banter at the tables. 

    • Respect one another.

    • RESPECT my game and my property.


My wife and I have worked very hard to get “this thing of ours” to where it is today. We’ve spent a lot of money and spent a lot of hours setting this up. It works very well as it is. While I get along with most people, sometimes there are people that just rub me the wrong way. Those will not get invited back.

(12.2) Cards thrown into the muck may be ruled dead. However, a hand that is clearly identifiable may be retrieved at management’s discretion if doing so is in the best interest of the game. We will make an extra effort to rule a hand retrievable if it was folded as a result of false information given to the player.

There is no small blind for that hand. On the following deal, the button moves to the now empty seat (the seat vacated by the eliminated big blind player) and the two players to the left post the normal blinds. This will result in the same player being the dealer two hands in a row. When the small blind busts, the button does not move. The player who was the big blind will now post the small blind and the player to his left will post the big blind. This will result in the same player being the dealer two hands in a row.

The Showdown
