    Poker Is My Passion.

    You only realise just what it is your passionate about when your backs up against the wall. Having just graduated from University I now find myself at a career's crossroad. The major influences in my life, my parents and peers, all want me to conform to the convention of...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    My poker experience mainly came form T.V some online. I have played in two big money Tournaments one in Vegas and one in Atlantic City. I enjoyed it for the most part but you have to have nerves of steel as well as great patience. It's hard for me to sit in one place for 14 hours...

    I was playing poker with 3 friends yesterday.

    We were betting poker chips, and I won 3 games - 2 by bluffing, 1 by having good cards - so when the next game started, I didn't even look at what cards I was dealt. I just went all in. Jeremy decided to fold, but Ryan and Josh decided to go all as well because I never looked at...

    I play quite a lot of poker

    and live quite close to a casino. Especially on weekends, there are multiple fish at multiple tables. Tonight, my daughter is sleeping at a friend's house and I am just so tempted to go and make some funny while laying the smackdown on the fish.

    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...

    and I busted out as the bubble (Last player to not make it "in the money") when you come from so far and came so close, only to be shut by the door when you get there.

    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.

    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...

    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?

    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 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...
