Have you played other card games before playing poker?
I was talking with friends a few weeks ago about how we came to like playing poker. I realised I was playing many different card games growing up and it felt natural to try playing poker amongst other games.
By instance, I have played Scopa a lot with my grandmother when she was babyisitting me.
Not quite hold'em poker like but it does have some similarities with it. There are cards in the middle accessible to all players and you need to know what cards have passed and what probabilities are left to make "series of points".
Have you played other card games and did it helped you improve your 220px-Italian_Playing_Cards.jpg
Before playing poker, I played blackjack. This is what happens during school breaks ) .. Over time we started to get bored of blackjack and we went to poker which to this day, for me, has remained the most beautiful card game.
I first got wind of poker about 15 years ago when I used to trade items for my Diablo 2 characters on another forum. The currency was called Forum Gold and one of the ways to earn it beyond trading was to win poker tourneys on Pokerstars (play money).
Then the mathematics pulled me in.
Then the philosophies.
I've learned more about life from sitting still at a poker table than anywhere else.
At home we allways played Canasta(uses Pokercarddecks (2times) and 8 Jokers).
Later i played a bit of Magic THe Gathering.
Also did play Hearthstone for a while, and even a bit of Pokemon Trading Card Game.
I know play a lot of card games but none like poker. When I saw the wsop broadcast a few years ago, my interest in card games made me want to learn and since then I haven't stopped playing it has become my favorite.
I played a lot of rummy growing up, it is very popular in my country, and I would say I was pretty good at it. I also thought my friends poker rules, they had never heard of it before I told them about it.
Hello, I played a card game called, con quien, in this game all the cards in the deck are used, and I think this game is more skill than luck, it would be incredible that pokerstars, include this game.
Played quite a few: War, Go Fish, Crazy 8s, Gin Rummy, Old Maid, Cribbage, Hearts are the ones I can recall. I always loved the feel of cards in my hand, and sometimes I would just shuffle them over and over to enjoy the feel and the sound. If I had grown up in Nevada I am positive that I would have ended up working in a casino.
The hardest thing about being a trans-woman is trying to learn
how to not enjoy The Three Stooges. I've failed miserably. LOL!!
I played Hearts as a kid as my "gateway" into poker, ironically I became interested in a number of competitive card games as a result of poker (not the other way around). A lot of the high level strategies are similar across these games, so I would expect good poker players to easily transition to other cards games.
Estuve hablando con amigos hace unas semanas acerca de cómo llegamos a gustarnos jugar al póquer. Me di cuenta de que estaba jugando muchos juegos de cartas diferentes mientras crecía y me pareció natural intentar jugar al póquer entre otros juegos.
Por ejemplo, he jugado mucho a Scopa con mi abuela cuando me cuidaba.
No es como el póquer Hold'em, pero tiene algunas similitudes con él. Hay cartas en el medio accesibles para todos los jugadores y necesitas saber qué cartas han pasado y qué probabilidades quedan para hacer "series de puntos".
¿Has jugado a otros juegos de cartas y te ayudó a mejorar tu juego de póquer? [ATTACH] 253507 [/ ATTACH]
