Poker in general
I've made a few topics on this board and the help I've received has been tremendous.. I feel like i'm learning something new about this game everyday and you have all been a huge part of it.. Poker is a great game, full of great people for the most part and it's just so cool to have latched on to something that makes you feel so alive.. I love my family and I work my 8 hours a day (sometimes more!) but the only time I really feel at peace is when i'm at the poker table.. The excitement every hand as you riffle your chips waiting to take a peek at you your hole cards is unmatched in my eyes.. The feeling you get when you bluff someone out of a big pot with deuce seven off is something else.. Are we athletes, of course not, is poker a sport, uh iffy, but is it not one of the best things to do on a Friday night with all your friends crowded around a dining room table playing for nickles and dimes?..What about the new friends you meet everyday on this board?..Of course some of us bicker every now and then like brothers and sisters but at the end of the day we all agree that Poker is a great game and what makes it so great is that there is no one way to play a hand.. You say slowplay, I say play it fast.. You say raise, I say call.. We can go for hours back and forth but that's what makes the game so damn great.. I don't know where i'm going with all this but I just figured I'd just throw it out there and see if anyone really knows why they love this game so much.. Just like there are a hundred ways to play a hand there has got to be a hundred reasons why this game means something to you.. I'm so glad I get the chance to learn from all of you and I hope that some day you will all learn something from me..
