At one time I had 6 regular sites and was enrolling in every freeroll that came around boosting my ego as a child taking out adults at an adult game. Now being of legal age everywhere I have won multiple house tourny's while slowing down my online play almost to a hault for awhile due to my travels. I believe starting so young though has given me experience well beyond my years and prepared me for today where I can sit at a table of people who think they are big sharks and quietly take them out with this 24 yr old baby face. What about y'all, how'd you get into this sinful game?
That's kind of funny, I sort of started out the same way. I caught an event on TV and instantly fell in love with the idea of winning a bunch of cash. My fathers friends would always have house games they would let me get into for $10 buy ins. I actually walked away with $50 one time, maybe 11 or 12 at the time.
My play slowed down a lot after I stopped hanging around my father and his friends, at a young age not too many of my friend played or really knew about poker.
When I turned 18 I was legal for the cardrooms in my area, and started playing again. Nothing too high in stakes, just the $1/$2 tables.
I just recently got back into online poker and play on blackchip, I play in the freerolls to build a bankroll. My goal is to essential earn a decent amount of cash stemming from a freeroll win.
