I got myself into a poker website! Bovada
.. or "bodog??" they call it. Had quite a blast today! Never had I felt this high while gambling. I was surprised there were tables with peoples whole chip stacks at around 1 to 2 dollars! And there bets are in the 2-20 cent range! This was right up my alley. I was getting sick of video poker at casinos. Its all touted as the lowest house edge video game and way better than slots
. This is really only true though if your drinking coffee and taking your time, and not playing on a machine that holds your cards for you. And turning down the speed of the dealing if the feature is available. Holdem is so much funner than video poker because video poker is pretty much just 5 cards being thrown at you from a deck.
Before today video poker was my main game. Still probably will mess around with it once in awhile. But now that im playing a game with no house edge I feel like im getting SO much more out of my gambling experience.
I played online holdem for a good hour and a half and made about $7.50 USD! For me, who usually sticks to gambling pennies, thats quite amazing. That house edge is pretty significant, even if its like 2%.
As of right now though... I see a long long road yet. I seem to be consistently making money moving table to table. I really havent read that many books, ive only played with fake money poker for a couple months. If im going to make the big bucks or even *gulp* make it to the world series or whatever I got lots to do. The ONLY thing I care about as of right now is the fun im having! If I never move out of the nickels, pennies, dimes, and quarter level of texas
holdem it will never matter so long as its fun.
