My son was interested in big TV boom with poker. We have home games and from there I was hooked. Took some time before I deposited, just cautious with sites. Been going strong for since then and it is second on the list of card games behind Euchre.
"Luck comes and goes but knowledge stays forever."
When I was twelve I would play poker with my parents on Saturday nights before Gunsmoke came on the television. Westerns were big on TV back then, and poker games were a frequent part of westerns, so since I already loved to play cards it was a no brainer. I guess that westerns had quite an effect on me, because another even bigger part of them was pretty much everyone carrying a sixgun. When I turned 21, the age in our state to purchase a handgun, I bought a sixgun like this one.
They work great at poker games too. Just placing it on the table in front of you tends to keep all the other players "honest". LOL!!
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 started playing poker 11 years ago. My friends played online in the evenings and I was also interested. A lot of time has passed since then, but poker remains my favorite hobby that brings me fun and money.
$2 home games 30 years ago....i had no idea how to play, and was the fish.
started watching friday night poker on uk tv in the late 90s...learning...more home games...started winning.
1st online experience...around 2002...pokerroom,com...as a depositor...won enough to buy a flight to india when my K6 sooted ...spades...hit the river flush against pot odds...
in 2003 got spanked for $500 or so by people who actually knew what they were doing... vowed NEVER to deposit again...never have.
i didnt really start learning poker until 2008..,.at the railbirds poker forum...played regularly against the same opponents....learnt how to take notes and properly remember hands... Read Brunson, Harrington, started actually learning from players better than me, rather than just losing to them.
forever learning...tuning my game according to my own style of play.
poker was taught to play by my own father, namely poker rules, at first I played poker for game chips in the future I started playing for real money, for a long time I lost money in poker now I started playing plus
As a child, I was interested in different types of games, including card games, and learned the rules of 5 card poker (one of the names is Russian poker). Later, as a student, he visited a casino and learned to play poker against a dealer. As I got older, I learned to play many types of poker and was looking for the opportunity to play poker over the Internet as a hobby. They showed me the PS website and this was the beginning of my semi-professional journey)).
guys i know poker since 1986 at school, in 2008, i looked for card games on the internet and i came across poker, more precisely poker sites ... i am still fish but it is the best laser when you have a defined structure and goals. I bet what I can ... not what I don't have ... or that I will be missed
I have always wanted to learn to play poker for as long as I can remember, probably started when I was watching gangster films on tv as a kid. I loved the idea of a seedy, smokey room, with shadey characters playing poker. But Iíve never known anyone that plays or had anywhere to go to play. But when I got furloughed earlier this year I made it my mission to teach myself. So I started reading up how to play and signed up to a play money site. Started to do okay on that so I tentatively ventured to Ladbrokes poker site and entered their daily free-roll. The day I won 0.53p I was elated.
But I needed more practice and Iíd got the bug by now so signed up to the biggies PP/888/PS. So still reading and playing but I would love people to talk to about my game. Sometimes I feel like Iím flailing around and playing terribly and other times I remember everything Iíve read and it all comes together perfectly. I know I need more aggression in my game. Then thereís times everything youíve read doesnít fit cos the people your playing arenít playing the same game, you know those ďall-inĒ types. But Iím still loving it and still learning. But if anyone has any good beginner tips. Please please please let me know....right Iím off to play some more.
It all started with the fact that my friend on the street on the grass spread torn cards and told the combinations. There were no Blinds Ante, etc. just a game of matches. And then I found out about the pokerstars site, found out who Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu, Liv Boeree are, and weeee goooo. I love poker, although I play mostly only freerolls, since tournaments for money do not allow me to play my financial situation
This is a funny story. I mean not funny, but funny. I started playing poker in jail believe it or not. It was stupid, I got 4 minor-in-possession of alcohol (M.I.P.) before i was 21, legal to drink. All four of them we're literally me being at the wrong place at the wrong time. At least, I thought that way when I was 16. So I got 3 months in jail, and every single one of them days I was grinding it out on poker. I was a natural, as soon as I learned the game and probability how is literally Unstoppable. I had to quit playing the last week I was in there. I literally almost got into like 10 fights because of Poker. Now! Over the past 2 years, I dedicated my studies to the game I reformed my game I play tournaments and I make it to the final table almost every time now. I just have to get my name out there. I am a very aggressive player in the beginning of the game, that's how my strategic order and coordination ended up panning out. I'm aggressive in the first half of the tournament and when my chip stack gets high, I slow it down a bit and that's when I play professionally I don't let any low percentage hands in. Then I usually always make it to the end and now I just need to work on, a three to five person game where everybody's almost equal in stacks but the blinds are high and the chip counts are extremely high I tend to get a little crazy and lose I need to work on that that's it once hi master the game in the end I really believe my mind in the game the sky's the limit I mean just look at me my girlfriend just said what are you writing a novel I can go on forever poker is my life and my wife sorry hun LOL
I started playing poker when my only daughter gave me a computer and installed Pokerstars for me as I used to fall asleep on my sofa watching WPT.
I found Mike Sexton and Vince VanPatton's voices very soothing.
I started playing poker three years ago. My friends involved me in this wonderful game. In fact, I started playing poker, thanks to interesting stories told by my friends, some of which were exaggerations. But still, I am glad I have such friends.
First I saw ads on television, then I went to search the internet for what the game was like and what was its dynamics, then I entered an online game room where I had poker that was worth fictional chips, after practicing for a long time I started playing on real money pokerstars, and so on until today hehehe
I started playing poker two years ago. My colleague often played at work, and I was also interested. In two years, I already have some achievements. According to my estimates, the total amount of my prizes is about $1800-2000.
I started playing poker on Facebook Zynga poker
after that I started playing the best game Governor of poker for fun but there is no money and then I started playing on Pokerstars
no more fun no more money....???!!!
My husband and I had a food shop.
There were some time during the day that we did not have job to do and needed something to do to ''kill'' out free time.
We started playing games in Facebook like bowling, etc.
And we found poker in facebook with not real money.
Starting playing there it was fun.
Then decided to open account and play with real money, and since then we play when we feel like.
