Title: Paisley Poker
Post by: Nikk Muir on 04/30/03 at 10:25:39
I can't seem to get a good game going in my area. I live in Paisley, in West Central Scotland, close to Glasgow but the only game I've ever had is a local one with friends. At the risk of sounding big headed, it just isn't difficult anymore. I would like to know if there are any other active groups that meet regularly in my area and if you'd be willing to take on another player.

Looking to join in a couple of home games as well as struggling to get 6 folk to play in ours.
my advice to you is to go onto www.google.co.uk and type in the keywords:
poker home game scotland
you will receive a number of irrelevant pages but contacts of this kind will result.
Thanks for your visit Lemon Man.
