I think I was around 13 when I first saw the movie Maverick.
The film is about a card player and con artist who collects money in order to enter a high-stakes poker game.
I remember I was drawn to the game since that moment.

School, lunch money

Got first poker games in fifth, sixth grades; 11 or 12 years old. No hold em. Just draw poker, five card. We played for change, money went a lot further back then.

I can't remember exact date and event which attracted me to the game but it was in pre black friday days when i was at the university (somewhere around 2006 maybe) and poker commercials were everywhere. :)

I remember being invited to the casino with the boys and when we entered I headed for the blackjack tables and such, all my friends were like “where u going?” And took me into the poker room. Since then I have never looked back at blackjack or roulette.

Cards and card games very young, kinda grew up with them and my grandparents from boths sides of the family. Texas hold em maybe around 16 years old after being a big psychology enthusiast.

I started playing in 2016. There was a period in my life when I had a lot of free time since I was unemployed and decided to give it a try. Since then, poker has been my favorite hobby.

I start playing poker after watching the main event of wsop on espn around 15 years ago. I start to play free poker games but after a couple of weeks I discovered the real money tables.

My first encounter was with a bunch of hockey friends. We were all teenagers, and after our game, we went to a party, and I played poker for the first time. I won!!!! Naturally, I was hooked, forever.
