We learned poker over jellybeans and cold milk while Daddy berated us for not holding our hand close to the chest, but these days you can easily find a nice digital instructor online wholl scold you only if your bathroom break lasts too long. Each Tuesday at Waxy OConnors, get the best of both worlds with the Miami Poker Society, a cheerful bunch that will welcome you to the table with a smile and take all of your chips while wearing the same grin. The game is Texas hold em, and the rules are simple: Everyone starts out with the same amount of chips, and once youre out, youre out. That is, until you hop over to the next table and begin your losing spree all over again. The games begin at 7 p.m., and its totally free to lose.
