    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...

    Though I'm Not Very Good...

    My dad taught my how to play when I was around eleven. My mom didn't appreciate his teaching me at all. But I am glad he did. I may not be amazing at it, but I know how to play. And every once in a while I win. I'm actually one of the only girls I know who knows how to play. It's...

    I Played This Year's Wsop

    I played the 2012 WSOP in the Seniors tourney. I wish I say I could cash but after a good start I ran into dead cards and had to go all in against a turned full house. A little sad when I busted but I realized I had a good time. I guess you can say I scratched that off my...

    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...

    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.
