    Poker Tournament at a Fundraiser .

    .. I played poker for the first time last night. I know how the game is played, and I've watched it on TV, so I can somewhat hold my own. I didn't know when to raise or how much to raise, and that sort of thing. But since this was for a fundraiser, the dealers were very...

    My Best Evening Playing Poker

    It was a 12 player hold'em tournament with $5000 buy-in and no rebuy and the first 5 sharing the pot.  I finished 3rd but I could have won the whole damn thing if I hadn't folded on a hand (more on that one later) .  The table I was at had 3 pretty good...

    Texas Hold 'em

    I loved 5 card draw as a kid and the phenomenon of Texas hold 'em broke loose and I was hooked..... I love the game... Please being able to read people anyway is a good thing... To pick out their "tells", even better... Throw in a poker face and a little BS...

    Why Play Poker

    I really had to think about why I spend so much time playing poker at the casino, and practising online for fun. What I figure is that I want to kill time between business meetings, friends,church and clubs. I get tired of drinking all the time so now its poker. I play live each...

    Returning To The Beautiful Game

    Poker is a wonderful game. From the classic Hold'em, to 7-Card stud, to Razz and Chinese poker, there is something to suit everyone. Up until about two weeks ago i was about ready to give up playing any and all forms of it. I am positive i was cursed. Every hand i played i was...

    It's Slightly Addicting.

    I admit that I don't play for real...but online is just as fun (well almost). Whenever I can I play online with "fake" money. While I know it's not the same as real life poker, I still enjoy it. My family and I over the holidays have our own poker tournaments...and we play...

    I Played With Keith Sexton

    Imagine my surprise when I saw Poker Pro Keith Sexton was playing on a $0.25/$0.50 Fixed Limit Hold'em table at Full Tilt Poker. Of course I added my name to the Waiting List, while I played a game on another table, because there were like 10 players waiting ahead of me. Much...

    Yeah

    I'm pretty good at it too.  I have a great poker face, probably because of how detached I am as a person. Just one thing though...I only play for M&Ms.  ;)

    Texas Hold'em

    My boyfriend taught me how to play Texas Hold'em, after he learned from a friend at work, whom used to be a professional player. I didn't think I'd pick up on it at first, because I usually don't like playing card games, but the more I learned, the more into it I got, haha. I...

    I Play Poker - For Fun

    I love poker. Stud was my game of choice. I occasionally played it at friends houses and once in a while in Vegas. Then the poker explosion with "Moneymaker" syndrome, I started to learn and understand Texas hold'em. To me this game is less demanding 'on the brain' then stud...

    Blind And Bluff

    There is nothing more ruthless than playing blind and going all in. 9 times out of ten you look like a nob head, but for that one time it goes your way, you look like a prophet.

    Texas Holdem, All In Or Not?

    I figure in order to play a tournament, you should never go all in, unless you sense the best of the best hand. The objective is to get to the final table, right?
