Community means shared interests among friends, and that's what this panorama shows. Every Saturday night my friends and I play Texas Hold'em Poker, alternating the game hosting amongst ourselves. Most of us are employed in technology companies, and our league name, Geek Poker Tour, follows from this.

We've built our own poker tables, including a professional-looking table with padded rails and cup holders, my own padded rails that fits over my dinning room table, and the table outfitted with hole-cams shown here. This table was used to record a poker movie that was submitted to the 2006 Munster Film Festival, a private film festival that this same group of friends run each year.

Our poker play is quite friendly, but we do follow the rules, and we have a moderate cash buy-in to each game that keeps us focused on playing smart. True to our league name, we record game stats and track our performance with an online website with charts and graphs, contesting for the coveted top position in the netgain stat.
