    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, 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.

    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:

    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.
