All in Texas Hold 'em Poker Club has established an official branch in Taichung, with the goals of promoting this particular type of poker game and teaching people how to play poker, using promotion-based lessons and competitions held at a single table every day. A maximum 20 contestants are allowed to join the game each day and a new contest is held every Monday, allowing those interested in taking part the chance to do so daily. On Fridays, the top five winners from the week's games come together in a final game to determine the first-prize winner. Prizes include money and other incentives. The club is working toward training good Texas Hold'em Poker players, who eventually, it is hoped, will have the opportunity to represent Taiwan in the world's Texas Hold'em Poker Competition.
The All in Texas Hold'em Poker Club was established by All In Entertainment Limited. Central Taiwan area branch manager Tsao Cheng-xiang notes that All In offers public activities relating to Texas Hold'em, as well as information about competitions around the world, giving locals a better understanding of this hundred-year-old game invented by Texans.
Texas Hold'em Poker is a game that depends more on your personality and playing technique, instead of pure luck. Apart from technique and experience, being able to control emotions and understand human nature are the real challenges. At the same time, one must also know how to deal with their own card as well as their opponents' cards. The club welcomes everyone to come and try out a game or two on their own.
