Default The Poker Craze...

Anybody here still a big poker nut? I remember like a few years ago when Texas Hold 'em Suddenly become Huge and everyone from 18 - 40 was playing Online Poker. Hell I loved the shit, I was hooked at 17 just playing Online for silly play money and membership points...

Anyway that shit has died down and the guys I usually played every thursay kind moved away from Poker. It was one of those things you did with the Guys, now everyone I know just stop caring. I was actually pretty good at Texas Hold 'em becasue I obsessed with Rules and Stats and Probability, probably one of the few times where my High School maths knowledge became of use.

I remember when we here set up some kind of Friendly PWF poster Poker game on one of the Online Poker Services, I forgot who won. It defnetly wasn't me....

So... Anybody here still playing Online or on Weekends or have you kinda gotten over the Poker Rush?

I first became serious about poker in 2006, I believe. Used to play in those slow as hell Yahoo rooms but now I've upgraded to Full Tilt. I started playing on that site sometime earlier this year. I don't have a source of income, and I'm still relatively new to the game anyways, so I play in the play/fake chip games. I've earned around 30,000 of those, plus I've finished well in alot of 90 player tournaments, as high as second place. I started playing less recently, especially because I was having trouble with the software. Now everything's fixed and I should play more because I love the game and I'm always improving. I'll play some online poker tonight in honor of this thread.

I still play, just not as much as I used to, and with the US government cracking down on internet gambling, makes it hard to earn money on sites like Full Tilt or Poker Stars.

I play a game of hold'em with the guys once every two weeks or so. Small money, maybe $5 buyins, really all we can afford.
I also play online on TheScore. I just won a tournament tonight actually that puts me into the weekly tournament on Wednesday where I can win money/prizes. I have to come top 10 in that though, which I haven't been able to do yet. There are upwards of 500 people in those games.

Poker is clearly an example where you can commentate anything and make it sound like a legit sport...

Hell Darts has commentators...

To this day, people still refer to poker as a sport. To me, it's a game. I know it involves alot of skill, but there's not enough physical activity.

One of the most mentally demanding board games but a board game never the less....

Only time chess is a sport is when my opponent throws the board at the wall after being assassinated.

I was playing poker the other day. The hand came down to me and one other guy. I had a flush, 9 high. Good hand, but not good enough, because the motherfucker beat me with a ROYAL FLUSH.

Board: Kd, Qd, Jd, Td, Anything
My cards: 9d, Anything
His cards: Ad, Anything

Does that make sense?

Yeah... You had a King High Flush, Gino is right it is impossible to have both in the same round in a game of Texas Hold 'em...

That makes you have a straight flush also...not a 9 high flush...

Anyways...I'm a poker addict...Went to Vegas about 2 days ago...Played in the 10-20 no limit game...Crazy actions I'm telling you...

I took out a camera and took a picture of me playing...and plus I had a bunch of chips siting in front of me...the floor man saw it...and took my camera away......I got it back at the end of the day though...but so damn n00bie moment for me...
