Default Playing In Atlanta

So, I'm in Atlanta right now, and noticed a sign on the door of a restaurant close to my hotel that they have poker night (no buy-in, of course; that would be illegal) on Tuesdays. It's part of a Hold-Em league called Georgia Poker Nights, and I'm thinking about going down there to play next week.

This will be the first time I've played Hold-Em outside my home city, so I'm curious what to expect. Does anyone know about any southern poker customs that I need to be aware of? What advice can you offer to someone playing live poker in a new region for the first time?

Thanks!

Dont make fun of the people's accents and dont call anyone a asshole that is 5 times your size. Beyond that I cant think of anything.

Okay, so up to 4x my size is okay, then?

Well, I played in the Georgia Poker Nights free tourney tonight at Harry's Pizza in Atlanta. It was a blast! The group runs a smooth tourney, and everyone had a lot of fun. There were about 40 people there, and I would say I came in somewhere around the top third. I'll be playing there again next month; all the people were very friendly and it was a pleasant tourney. In the end, pocket rockets plus the board undid my two pair, and I was out.

If anyone ever finds themselves in Atlanta with a few free evening hours, check out Georgia Poker Nights .

I did reply to you in PM, but I'm going to include part of the information here, as well, in case there are other Georgians interested in playing.

Here is a link to the tournament structure for Georgia Poker Nights. Yes, they do give gift cards and things like that to the top winner, and the top 8 players each night get points toward entry in a monthly $1000 tourney.

Well, they have multiple locations (lots, actually) where you can play. The place I played happens to be in Marietta, on the NW portion of town. It looks like the northernmost tourneys take place near the intersection of I-75 and the 407 loop, which is where I played. Whether that makes the trip worthwhile is your call, though. I do know that I had a good time, but I wasn't looking for anything other than that, since I can't really be part of their points series.

I don't know the amounts of the prize cards, but one thing I did forget to mention is that points leaders in their tournament compete for a seat at the WSOP.

I found out yesterday that they are playing again tonight at The Line, which is not far from my hotel. I think I'll go have dinner there and join them for another round.
