I am not a good player. I am a recreational - at best a break even to small loser over the last 20ish years playing the Hold'emz....

Ms. Gamboolgal and I live and work oversea's working oilfield for now pushing 40 years. We only get to come to USA a couple times per year. So we play for fun and want to have a good time. We don't mind losing a few buy ins a day as long as we are having fun. We take low 5 figures for pokersz on our trips in twice per years. I don't even blink with getting 4 or 5 buy in's on the table...all fun stuff...and for 10 months of the year in the 3rd world shiite hole we live and work in - there is no cards or anything but work...so losing a few thousand having fun and de-stressing...just what the Doctor ordered ! And I don't always lose....We have paid for afew trips....you never know.
We come to have a good time and enjoy the gaammbool !!

We play 1/2 or 1/3 and I love to be "that guy" who snaps off the reg's big pocket pair with trash...hahaha funs stuff.....

But watch out cause I can go on tear....
You want me on your table....

And for the tin foil hats....we do not play at the same table if we can help it....and if we do we tell the table we are married....and then we have a good time.....But truth is that Ms. Gamboolgal does not like to be on the same table as me - as she gets aggravated as I play stupider....but I'm having fun !

So please, please quit taking 1/2 &1/3 so serious and acting all antisocial. One of the things we like about Vegas, Florida, Mississippi, New Orleans - the Gulf Coast - if we are on a table with a bunch of unpleasant players - We Leave and take the moneys to a fun game at another casino...Winstar is big enough we can swap tables if we get with a bunch of serious pro wannabe's....

Next trip will be in November and will be a road trip of about 3 weeks - fly in to Miami, rent a car and start working our way back to Houston....

Hope to play with some of yawl...and hopefully bust you with my 2 outer.....and we all laugh about it - because you know that you will get me if I play long enough...because remember - I'm not a good player

But the main thing is that we will be the couple who is having fun and wants to enjoy the time at the table...Win or lose - don't matter to us....

What'ya say....Do you want a fun table with someone who is having a good time and does not mind losing as long as I am having fun....or do you want to be at a table with a bunch of "pro's" who are legends in their own minds who are unpleasant and make the game No Joy....

Crazy man :)) But thats is tru ... everybody should have fun at what they do ;) anyway if You take big pot with bad hand then it is difficult to expect some with pocket aces will do the same :D :D :D
Wish You have fun at the tables but without make others too angry :)

I've noticed that at the local casino there are fun players and too serious players. TBH if you're playing $1/$2 and only buy in for $100, seriousness shouldn't be in your table makeup. Now that I've been playing regularly (80+ hours a month, always at the same times) I've become friends with more than a few players and like it when we all start at the same table, with the same stacks.

I do play occasional weekends when people like the OP show up. I find those games to be fun too, I just narrow my range when playing against them and keep it the usual way when playing regulars.

Playing poker can be a lot of fun, but when it comes to making money from it, poker is a serious game. You may love it one day, and the next day you may hate the game. Winning is great, but losing sucks. How you handle both is real important. Getting to happy can be a loser, because you can play to many hands thinking you can't lose, and tilting will be a loser, because you will play to many hands out of anger. And that just makes it worst. So the bottom line is to keep control of your game no matter what. That's why being serious is the best way to play poker. Just don't change from hand to hand. What happens happens, no matter what causes it. Just learn from each hand.

One more month and we will depart Nigeria and fly in to Texas.... Then a day or so later Ms. Gamboogal and I will fly to Miami, rent a car and start to gambool !

We will try to take tons of pics and post back here....we have a full 4 weeks and no plans other than to gambool our way back to Houston from Miami....
Taking about cash $20K but can reload as need be :eek:

We hope to meet some of yawl and we really want to get a pic of you at the table with the veins bulging out as your eye balls pop out.....as I rake in the pot with trash ahahaha:D

Always remember....I'm just holding the $$...as I am not a good player....we are looking to have a good time.....

I will be looking to bag and tag the hoodies with sunglasses and ear buds.....who are all legends in their own minds.....

YeeHaaaawwww.....

Come and get it....

But enjoy getting it and have FUN !!

gamboolman & Ms. Gamboolgal....

PS - we always buy in for the MAX.....just in case.....

I play poker for fun too. But I dream to win big. Probably, as all the players?
