Default Let's talk about Poker...

Okay, so i've been watching quite a lot of poker lately...i mean how can you not...it's on ESPN2, ESPN Classic, Travel Channel...and so on...soooooo since it's all over the ESPN channels...

1st part of the thread...would you consider it a SPORT?
2nd part...if you have 10,000 dollars would you enter the main event for a chance to win 12+ million dollars?
3rd part...do you play? and your whatever opinions on the game...
__________________________________________________

okay, first of all i want to say this is one of the most addictive thing ever to play or watch...one of my favorite was i forgot what event...but it was Doyle Brunson holding pocket QQ, versus some guy holding pocket KK...the flop came out 5, 6, 10 i believe...and the other guy bet and Doyle thought for like a second and throw the damn hand away...that's classic poker right there! i mean if it was me i would have raised or at least called that bet...

i wouldn't consider it a sport, but the rating for Poker on ESPN is quite high (NBA-like sometimes i believe), and since ESPN have aired Poker, it became a HUGE thing...i mean everywhere you go Poker, Poker, Poker...i myself have flipped on ESPN2 every night so i could watch WSOP tournaments...and of course ESPN put Poker on the map.

I'm too damn poor to even think about having 10,000 dollars, but if i could i would definitely...a chance to play with some of the best ever in the game...that would be so great.

So discuss...

Poker on tv is the dumbest fucking thing ever, who the fuck wants to watch other people play poker?

That's just one of those things you play, not watch.

Man....how exciting...

Watching people play card, and on TV no less

No...I'm afraid my life hasn't reached the point where I feel the need to watch other people play cards....ON TV.

As long as their are sleeping pills and pain killers out there, my life shall never be that devoid of meaning.

1st part of the thread...would you consider it a SPORT?
-No. But it's entertaining, and I watch it a lot. Pretty into Poker After Dark right now, but I object to reruns, because that makes them a week of shows I've already seen. AHHHH.

2nd part...if you have 10,000 dollars would you enter the main event for a chance to win 12+ million dollars?
-Absolutely. I would lose, but I would have a blast doing so.

3rd part...do you play? and your whatever opinions on the game...
-I haven't played real poker in ages... I don't have many friends anymore and key family members that played have died, so it's difficult to find a game. I play online though. OOOOOH PARDY POKA~!!!!

You want to compare the manliness of a card game in which you bluff(bullshit) to make hands versus a card game which is pure fucking luck... Thats your thing.

I like Blackjack in the casino as much as the next guy... But it aint shit compared to Poker...

P.S I just took down a freeroll the other day with 190 players down at one of the local sports clubs... So evidentally i like poker...

if we're talking about No Limit Hold 'em...i think i can hold my ground...but if it's Omaha, or other type of Poker, or Limits, or Pot Limits, or whatever then you've got me for sure...

As for poker being on TV...i mean yeah of course it's nothing compare to actually play the game...but ever since they installed the "hold cards cameras"...it became very interesting and gained huge popularity...i mean yea pre-cameras it was just a bunch of guys sitting at a table...the audience actually have no idea what's going on until they went all-in or do showdowns to know what the players have...but now we know what they're have and what they're need and how they're play...i mean it's interesting...i guess it's just me being in love with any cards game. i mean there are times when instead of poker they would show like "Cheerleader competitions" or some other bullshits...now that's a waste of TV program right there...

I used to play it sometimes on the net, no money involved, just friendly games. I'll play with friends, but half the time i won it was all based on a fluke. I'll put the card down without really knowing its value and then just clean house like "wow, how i do that?" lol. But it was fun, won't ever play for real money though. Thats how you become hooked, you lose, wanna win your money back and before you know it you're hooked and you've lost more money than gained.

I just got into blackjack late last year. Thats the only card came i'll play at the casino. Its so fun and so addicting.


I love playing poker too. My buddies and me haven't played as much lately, but we still get a game going once and awhile. I like watching it on TV. I don't go out of my way to watch it. But if its on and i'm not doing anything i'll watch it. You can learn alot from it.

1st part of the thread...would you consider it a SPORT?
-Yes. In the same way Id consider pool (Billiards) a sport. There is very much alot of skill envolved with poker. More skill than say, blackjack or craps or any other gambling game.

2nd part...if you have 10,000 dollars would you enter the main event for a chance to win 12+ million dollars?
-Yes. If I had it to spare. But nowadays you dont need it to get there. Theres sattelites. Just ask Chris Moneymaker.

3rd part...do you play? and your whatever opinions on the game...
-Im a certified amatuer player. I have been in one pro-event. ot knocked put pretty fast. I was holding Q9 suited in the small blind and it was just I and the big blind in the hand. The flop came 10 J K rainbow (all different suits) flopping the second nut hand I bet 200. The big blind raised me and put me all in. Over betting so to say. Trying to read him, wich was hard since I never played with him I put him on A K or K j or k 10 ginving him 2 pair and I fig he thought I had a strait draw and was trying to push me out. Well seeing ho I had the second highest straight I had to call. It was to early to not. The odds of him having Ace Q were slim but the fuck if he didnt. I was knocked out early, but I did the right thing. Know if it was later in the tourney, finall table even, calling is still the right thing to do there. But if I coulda got a good read I might of folded. He way over bet. He got to excited. Wich showed he had the best hand. Like I said later in the tourney that would came in handy and led me to fold. We were barely in the first round and I was just thinking I would double up right away.

Im learning more and more about the game everyday. My weakness right now is the bubble. I placed on the bubble 6 out of my last ten tourneys. The bubble is where you get knocked out one before you place in the money. I need to train my self to play tighter around that time.

Anyways, you may see good ol KAM on TV one day playing at the WSOP. In fact, In June im going to be in the first WSOP event at the RIO in Vegas. Its a $500 buy in and its just for Casino employees.There should be an estimated 2000 people or so and first place should be $400K or so. Wish me luck.

Oh yea by the way, in my first pro event, I got to meet Shannon Elizabeth from American Pie. Ass well as a few others but Shannon was the hottest and nicest and she gave me a hug and was way sweet and way hotter in person.

Damn, yeah shes hot. You need to shave that off your face as well, man, for real.

In your next tournament wear sunglasses, all those pros seem to do it so they won't get read out. Good luck as well.
