I've been playing for about fifty five years. My mother and father taught me the game when I was around twelve years old. Westerns were really big on television back then, and we used to play poker on Saturday nights before Gunsmoke came on at ten pm. :)

My poker start

Good afternoon everyone, I started playing poker at the end of 2018, I remember I made a deposit of $ 10, on ps and I lost that amount very quickly.
The game of poker all the time you have to make decisions, on 12/15/2020, I had to make a decision, in the action where the blids were at 150/300 and BTN goes All in with 7000 chips and the SB with 6800 call and hero on the BB with TT and 6950 chips.
What to do in this situation, call or fold?
I spent my entire bank bank and fold, villain with A2s from BTN and call from SB with AKo, if I had called I would win the hand and become the CL.
Is the fold the correct move? I can forget that hand.

I have been playing poker for 9 years, mostly online. And in my opinion there were better offers before

More than 15 years, but I was more active in 2012-2014.
Came back this year after a couple of years off. I believe I learned more this year than in the last 14 together. Even thought I still have a lot (a ton) to learn.
One thing is certain, the amount of material to study is unparalleled if compared to 10 years ago. At the same time, since ppl have easier access to content, the field is better than it was before. So, it's harder to win.

I started playing in 2006 on a site called Absolute Poker In the USA and didn't have a clue about position starting hands and etc.

Then the Government shut online gambling down to protect the citizens from something :banghead: Not sure what they were saving me from. :bootyshak:bootyshak:bootyshak

This year rediscovered Holdem and the crazy amount of information about the game that is now available on line. The sites available Here in the U.S. limited.

I have been playing poker for a little over two years. And although it is obvious that I have very little experience, but nevertheless, I already have some achievements.

I started to play poker in 1997 when I was 19 in casino. It was 5 cards Draw Poker. Then I discovered Texas Holdem in 2005 and start to play online in 2010 at poker stars. So started to play poker a pretty while ago.

It's inconvenient to speak, but I've been playing for 8-9 years, and I haven't achieved any tangible successes for my pocket. Although I can say that without replenishing the balance on the PS I can make myself a bankroll for playing at micro-stakes within a week, which I often lose in the casino. But at the moment I hardly play in a casino, but before that I had hoped for 2 years that I would someday be lucky in slot machines, but I was not so lucky. I don't hope anymore and decided to play only poker.
