|Headline:||Conduct Amateur Texas Hold `Em Poker Tournaments in Bars|
|Description:||I have been conducting amateur Texas Hold `Em poker tournaments in bars and clubs since 2005. |
After a split with my former "partner", I started up again from scratch with one bar and within a week I had two bars. After a month I was hosting 5 days a week. No Fee Texas Hold `Em Amateur Poker League now conducts over 60 tournaments a week and has 2,000 plus members in the league. We re-started from scratch in March of 2006 so growth has been super. The company is now in the process of offering franchise opportunities nationally.
Running an Amateur Poker League was a great way to have a brick and mortar presence without the overhead of actually having a lease. We`ve developed a real synergy with our website and the "real" world and use the internet extensively to communicate with our league members. The networking that I`m able to do through the growing membership has been phenomenal. You can really get to know someone when you sit down and play poker for several hours on a weekly basis.
I also run a website hosting/design company and an online music distribution company.
Gotta say. . . I sure like what I`m doing now vs the days when I was a Computer Applications Analyst at Boeing.
