Anybody here play Poker? I love playing it w/ my friends (no money, just chips).
I remember playing it with friends and losing but I don't actually know most of the rules and such.
I only know the rules to Texas Hold 'em and rarely play it, but I do love playing it :] I could imagine me being one of those people being hooked on the real life money ones on the internet :] roffles.
I play Texas Hold Em' occasionally
i play poker with my mates all the time
they arent very god though
so its no money
Ha my family played Texas Hold Em' at our christmas party. I think it was $10 or something around that to play. I was kicking all there asses and my uncle wanted to play so I sold my chips for $30. That was a good day.
I play texas hold'em, I do not like to play without money because you can't really play, I mean, when you don't have nothing to lose, you don't try to hold your chips, and you just call to see what happens, when you play with money, if you lose the chips you lose money, so if you don't have anything good, you probably won't play that hand.
To be truthful, I've never really Looked into the game. Nor have I ever seemed to show an Interest. For some off reason, My brother likes to watch it on Television. I can't understand how it entertains him for so long.
I like watching it on television. No more than a hour though.
in my humble opinoin poker FTL
Jays friend loves poker, we ended up playing it the other day using chocolate minstrels as poker chips in the bar in the cinema while we were waiting to go see 300 lol.
haha, I'm a poker fiend.
In the last few years poker has gotten really big. It's become a fad, actually. And that pisses me off that all these kids see poker on ESPN and they think they are poker pros. I've been playing poker since I knew how to count, because cards were actually how i learned to count. My grandmother would get a deck of cards and she would use them to teach me counting, basic addition and subtraction. After that, she taught me how to play poker. I knew all the poker hands before I was even in kindergarten. So needless to say I've been playing cards of all kinds for a long time.
Me and my buddies get together whenever we can to play. We play Hold'em, Omaha, Stud, whatever we feel like. I usualy play cash games. We usually played tourney style, but once college came we realized that we couldn't get everyone together long enough to play a whole tourney. So we just started playing cash games. Usualy a 40 dollar cap, re-buys are alwasy accepted, and in fact encouraged. We like to support each others gambling addictions:thumbsup:
Holy Cow tank, you must be pro!
Bubba-ga-nush, you might wan't to add scenery to your signature, it looks like men are just walking into a stationary tank and getting squashed by it.
AHHH!!!!!!! I play poker!
especially on fulltiltpoker.com
hehe Poker, is my best friend.
I play.. Texas Hold'em, Omaha, and, Razz [somtimes Stud]
OHH, yess. only play money [of course].
Real money is when I play with my friends. .25 cents for each poker chips. :]
lol I kepted eating the "poker chips" when nobody was lookin'
erg, was that sarcasm? I really can't tell.
No, I'm not a pro by any means. Don't get me wrong, I've been playing long enough that I know what's going on most of the time. I can usually call people on their bluffs and whatnot. But a lot of people don't realize how much there actually is to poker. Knowing your odds, playing pot odds, betting strategy, the science of table chatter, all that good stuff. I play with a lot of good players, so I usually end up breaking even. But the best part is playing with a bunch of amatures who only started playing when it came on TV.
I'll usually play the first couple hands fast and reckless, in tourney it's a big advantage to see how others at your table react to your plays. Eventually I can lure most amatures into a false sense of security, making them think I'm also new to the game. Then I put my "game face" on and bust them for everything. Good times.
Omaha is the BEST game in the world. Followed by No Limit Texas Hold 'Em! What blinds/buyins do you guys normally play? And do you play online?
PS Tank you my friend are a machine...lol. Thats exactly how you play the game. Although I prefer Cash Games myself. Allows me to play more loose.
haha yeah, Omaha is fun cause to even have a chance to win you need pretty much need a boat.
Yus and thanks to that we stopped playing :lol:
