In my non-poker time, I'm a writer for one of the major Toronto daily papers, and we're doing a story on underground poker clubs in the city. Figure it's best to at least have a player write it than someone who thinks the game is all luck and gambling.

What I was wondering is if anyone plays the clubs and is willing to talk but also if anyone knows of a Canadian version of the PPA or another pro-poker lobby group so I can really try and get that side out there.

Drop me a PM or just post here.

Not sure if you found anyone, but the owners are a bit gun-shy these days.

If I may make a suggestion, you might want to look at the lack of connection between these clubs and organized crime. That's what the gov't and OPP would want the general public to think. :lol:

I play at a few myself regularly, so I'm aware it's not the way the province trys to spin it as an outlet for organized crime. If anything, the angle I'll swing it is that Woodbine would be a fine location for a T.O. based room, but I still have editors to please.

Any players interested in talking about their experiences, drop me a line. Should be coming out next Sunday so I'd need to talk before then.

Still finalizing it. Been working on a few other stories in the meantime and this one had to go back-burner. Have one or two more clubs I'm hitting up this weekend. Have to admit, I'm enjoying holding off since I'm getting paid to play (and having a sick run of good variance).
