The hook for playing poker in a bar is that, should you be losing, you can drown your sorrows; if you are winning, you can celebrate with a cold one. Oh yeah, you can bet we know our multiple addictions. Whether youre a degenerate or not, you can beat the odds of a loser night with the weekly tourneys at Mikes at Venetia. These games are free but, as part of Poker Challenge of America, offer winners a chance to qualify for major tournaments. The bar ups the ante with three-dollar Becks.
