Playing with friends
Hello, I am writing to tell you about my poker games
with a couple of my friends. We play about 3 times a week,and every time will play we will have at least 3 games,its always round my friends house because he has got a good table, its not a proper table, but who needs one of those . There are 4 of us and will all put in £5, and because of the small pot there is only first place. We play No limit holdem and start of blinds (in chips) 2 - 4. We only increase the blinds untill the first person goes out, and then that person will be the unlucky one because they will have to deal for the rest of the game. Then we play 4 - 8, and increase the blinds every 20 mins, so it keeps it very open for everyone to win.
Obviously our games are at the bottom end of poker, its not for big money, but its for the most important thing which for me is 'braggin rights'. lol Its so much fun playing with friends, we are all getting much better, and it keeps up the skill for when I go to play live games down at the casino or at other clubs. Poker is a great game, it brings us all together, everybody enjoys their night. The moneys not big, but everyone gives it their full attention.
Well thats my story, please share your games with me and the rest of the board, do you play for bigger pots, how many people do you have, do you prefer just to play big tourneys or online, do none of your friends even play?
