Get to the Fun Faster



Poker is a miracle mix. Super fun events where the room is always full of laughter, energized by friendly competition and new skills. Networking and bonding happens naturally and you’ll get an evening your whole group will rave about.

Plus, learning poker is a chance to build analysis skills and your own risk management style…and build your table image.

“Adventurous poker night was so much fun. As a “never played,” I learned the basics of the game & strategy of the play all in a few hours. I would feel comfortable playing poker in Vegas with all that I learned.”

Poker Party Details

Q: What is the flow of the event?
We love to customize, but normally our event evening runs 6:30-9pm:

6:30-7:00 cocktails & socializing with Instructors (bios posted to create conversation)

7:00-7:15 Warm-up talk
(Funny poker stories, Intro on game play, How to choose your table by level)

7:15 Attendees choose tables & meet their Instructor

7:15-8:45 Instructors walk-thru cheat sheets, intro basic concepts

Instruction begins with open hands and debrief on every hand.
Table play starts with closed hands and coaching.
As play progresses, you’ll find attendees riveted & laughing at their own bluffs.

8:45-9:00 Adventurous host makes the rounds to find out “Winners” from each table
(biggest $$ pot, best bluffer, most improved, etc.)

9:00-9:15 Winner announcements & Prizes

9:15-9:30 Instructors share last coaching and inspiration

Q: Do you bring in all equipment including cards, chips, table-tops?
Yes, we bring cards, chips, tabletops & linens. We can arrange table & chair rentals for $45 total per table setup. We also bring our mini cheat-sheets for each player, some inspirational notes & pictures for each table, and the Introductory slide presentation.

Q: What should we provide?
Whatever cocktails you’d like during the 1/2-hr arrival/reception time and sometimes an appetizer buffet during the poker event itself. (We’re also happy to provide & arrange food options for you.) We’ve found time & again that no other activities or distractions are necessary – even massage therapists brought in for an event have to actually go around to the tables to provide shoulder massages because attendees don’t want to leave the action!


Poker is a Brain Sport

Yes, we’re an adventure company and our mission is to give you a more adventurous life. We think poker is part of that. It builds brain muscles, creates strategic savvy, increases your network and builds friendships. At our events, you will laugh your way smart.
