Someone once said that if you're playing “a friendly game of poker” then you're really not playing poker at all. Poker is a game of deception, psychological manipulation and occasional cruelty. It's about fleecing your fellow man. Well, let's just hope the Mr. Grumpy Poker Puss who said that doesn't show up at Trinity Hall (5321 E. Mockingbird Lane) on Monday night when they host a weekly no-cost, family friendly Texas hold 'em tournament. The game is played for bragging rights, a few gift certificates and a chance to return next week to the championship table. And fun, which should come pretty easy since the games in a pub that pours a fine glass of Guinness, plus Irish whiskey alonside a mean plate of fish and chips. Maybe that's not “real” poker, but it sounds a lot more enjoyable sitting across from mum douche in a ball cap, mirror shades and a loud shirt who's trying to fleece you. Sign-up is at 7:15 p.m. and the games run 7:30 p.m. till 9 p.m., with an eight-person finals table playing 9:30 p.m. till 11 p.m. Visit trinityhall.tv.
