Poker Boys Ken and Mark visited the Metro Card Club in MetroWalk in Ortigas. Ken used to play at the old venue with some of his friends and this was the first time he entered the new venue which featured a huge floor area that has numerous poker table and.... a lone billiard table( hmmm maybe for this is for the guys who cant get a seat yet).
The guys met the manager (Brian) of the Metro Card Club and did a little chat about trying to hold an event in this very fine poker establishment... I wonder what the Poker Boys are cooking up.
To find out more about the METRO CARD CLUB please check out their site. And for those of you who play poker in METRO CARD CLUB please let us know how you feel about this place so that our readers will have an idea.
Good Luck at the Tables!

Poker Boys Drops on Manila China town Part 1

The Poker Boys took the initiative and invited some AIM Students from different courses to visit Manila China Town. The China town is located in Binondo, Manila just across the Pasig River.

Prior to Makati, Binondo was the center of the financial and business district in the Philippines. Personally I think that the place has lost its sparkle compared to Makati but it still has this rich history which many still find very intriguing to this day.

The Poker Boys, along with a small AIM delegation, left the campus grounds a little after 2:00pm on the day before the Chinese New Year Celebration. And they soon found themselves in the heart of a very busy China town street called Ongpin. Anna Laczynska (ISEP student) from Poland, is the epitome of child-like excitement, taking pictures and trying out local food like there was no tomorrow.

Rankings on January 24, 2009

It was a night of firsts in AIM Poker Nights... Mr.Bond raked in 6,000 points which is the highest ever in one night. He has caught idle players by surprise and is now in the number 2 spot in our poker rankings. He is poised to take on Arora's number 1 spot by force.

Mr.Cynical also won big, especially after finishing off Mystery in the last deal of the night (6 am in the morning to be exact). He raked in Mystery's chips with a diamond A and K Flush.

Poker Boy Ken: "It was just too BIG"

Jacob the MAKATI Foodie triumphs over Poker Boys Mark and Ken when they met up at Burger Avenue for their RIDICULOUS BURGER CHALLENGE! It was a hard fought battle but in the end the true food critique won. (watch out for jacob's post on his blog )

The boys had good fun stuffing their faces with that 1 pound Burger. It takes great skill and determination to really swallow that Ridiculous Burger in 5 minutes. Poker Boy Mark was few seconds away from being part of the Hall of Fame. Poker boy Ken said (with a mischievous glint in his eye) "Mark should practice how to swallow."

Hats off again to the competition. If there are anymore food challenge from our dear friend Jacob the poker boys will be always up for the challenge.

Till the next challenge

Rankings on January 22, 2009

Poker Rookies joined the AIM PokerNight Veterans last Jan 22. They wanted to try out what they have learned from the Poker Tutorials and it seemed some of them actually learned something.

But the biggest news was there were big movers from the bottom half of the rankings. Le chiffre moved from previous rank of 26 to 22. And Mystery who was down -2800 points gained more points than anyone leaving him now at -1675 points (however he made minimal movement in the rankings.)

PimpAss Paradise continues his winning ways and still has a solid lock on number 2 spot. Semi-newbie Maverick (formerly known as KK) has moved from 17th place to 7th... impressive wins on a couple hands makes a big difference.

Press on poker players. wishing you luck on the tables.

Poker Boys Ken Looks Good in Chocolate

Poker Boy Ken celebrates his 26th birthday with the AIM Poker Nights community. Just to show his dedication and passion to this community, he conducted the POKER tutorial on his birthday.

But true to the ASIAN INSTITUTE of MANAGEMENT Birthday Tradition, Poker Boy was presented a birthday cake, got a birthday song (ISEP student Anna sang the Polish version) and a Cake in the Face.

For the longest time it has seemed that the "cake in the face" ceremonies here at the institute has been around since the dawn of AIM time.

And to be honest, Poker boy Ken, you look good in chocolate!
Brings a whole new meaning to sweetening the pot!

The biggest mover from the Poker Night held in Tagaytay was Mr.Cynical finishing off his opponents like a madman. He was on fire that night that all his competitors dropped from their previous rankings.

Maybe a change in scenery does alter ones game and strategy. Watch out for the AIM Poker Tour.

3rdRocSon Banned From Poker Nights This Week

AIM Poker Player Emil "3rdRocSon" Tan is banned from playing in this week's poker nights. The Poker Boys has banned Emil Tan this week for reasons that is very close to our hearts...

Emil, an MM 2009 (Masters of Management) student has to concentrate on his school work more this week as their deadlines are coming up next week. He will try to finish off some work on his MRR or thesis. He is currently writing on a feasibility study of a food business.

The Poker Boys, first and foremost, support academic activities before anything else. This bi-weekly Poker gathering is more of a relaxing escape from the pressures of the caseroom. A venue where everyone just be themselves. But the AIM Poker Nights should never get in the way of each student's responsibility to study and learn.

well boys and girls, seems like the poker boys is putting their foot down in this issue.
we will just have to play hard and study harder...

First AIM Poker Nights held off campus

If everyone was wondering why there was no poker night last Saturday that's because the Poker boys took a trip to Tagaytay with Cohort 2. They went on a boat ride, visited the Taal Volcano, enjoyed the scenery, ate Buko (Coconut) Pie, and of course played POKER!

This will be one of many AIM Poker Nights that will be held off campus.

Poker Boy Ken said that they were testing it out to see if an off campus game was logistically feasible. I guess nothing is impossible with these guys...

Back to School; Back to PokerNights

Happy New Year future managers, welcome back to the institute. Glad to see familiar faces once again. Hope that holiday break didn't slow you down because the Poker Boys will keep you on your toes this year and it's going to be great.

We bid farewell to Batch 1 who graduated last December 2008. We will be retiring their CodeNames in the new section of the blog Poker Player Archives.
We also bid a temporary farewell to our cohorts from Batch 2 that took part in the ISEP Program; make us proud. But we would like to welcome with open arms the ISEP exchange student who will be hanging out with us in the Asian Institute of Management for a couple of months (Anna, John, Eddy, and Thomas and Tom).

Heard that some of you have been practicing during the Holidays... well it is time to show off those poker faces and skills.

AIM Poker Nights 9:30 pm at pool side.
