It seems that poker has hit Cape Town over the last couple of years. Did you ever play when you were at school? I didn't. It was only when I got to varsity that it all happened for me. Then suddenly everyone played and you looked like a muppet if you didn't know that a flush beat a straight.
The next status symbol became owning your own poker chips. In the beginning, only the select few owned a set. The Croc is the only one that comes to mind right now. Now it has become more common to own a set although there are still precious few floating around. I myself managed to acquire one, but it was pilfered by The Name for a very long time and has only recently been returned to me.
Here is a site that you can buy some cool poker chips. They have a massive selection and at a lank reasonable price. Only problem though is that you have to ship them from the US. Still not a bad plan because they are very cool. Las Vegas, Nevada style chips!
It seems that poker will continue to grow and the only question that remains is... Who is the best?
