I was surfing facebook and I saw an ad of a player who had won 1 million dollars in an ept, I do not remember the name, but I said that much, and since then I have not stopped, I really like to play.

My father played, but he forbade me to play, I watched a lot of old west movies, I believe I started when I was 15, then I played in the exercise period, where I won a lot of money, I was almost arrested playing in a clandestine casino, I went to Las Vegas in 1986, more Than I lost, i've been over 20 years old than online gambling, I confess that in time I have lost much of my courage, today I play more and test my opponents online, once every ten or fifteen days I attend a poker house.

How long have you been familiar with poker and under what circumstances did you get to know it?
I have been playing poker since 2016. I started when I had a lot of free time and I was bored. Now I play much less than before, unfortunately there is very little free time :(

Long time ago there were showing in Poland early EPT on Eurosport somewhere around when pokerstars was created. Was playing micros and freerolls. Take break maybe 7 years. Downloaded PS again 3 months ago, decided to give it a go this year with a lot of learning. The goal is to participate in UKGPT by the end of this year in London.

Luckily I got to know poker in 2011 (about 12 years ago), I was resting for a hernia surgery and I saw an advertisement on ESPN where they invited me to play at the largest free poker site in the world, Pokerstars, it called a lot. attention, from that moment my story began haha

I played with my cousin on vacation and his friends. One mate from the team had card chips, and I joined them.
I liked it right away.

This is a fun story. I came to play pairs one day and the teacher was there, I don't remember her name, she just asked who can play poker, I can't, but they taught me the basics and she said we play for money and we don't miss her pairs because we wanted to play poker with her haha

I got acquainted with poker quite a long time ago, when I saw one of the championships on TV late at night. Even then, I really liked the game, and I watched this tournament all night. Of course, then I had no one to play with among my peers, and my games were limited only to battles against the computer. I gradually got tired of it, and I forgot about poker for several years.Playing for wrappers helped me understand only the essence and rules of poker. It was only later that I downloaded another version of the program, where there was a game for money, then I learned about freerolls, about the cash game, about SnG and so on, that's when my poker life began.Try quitting smoking for fun, at least for a week, and see how you feel. And I am sure that 90% of you will play better because poker is a game of the mind, and cigarettes are a drug that dulls it.

I'm in my late 60s now and have played many card games over the years, including 5 card draw and Stud Poker, but never even heard of Hold-em until about 20 years ago when I chanced on watching Late Night Poker on TV, and the game grabbed me. I don't know what it was but I started by playing freerolls on Pokerstars, then tried quite a few other sites, so I have been playing Hold-em for over 20 years now.
I still have never made a deposit, and cashed out of at least 4 different sites that I made money from playing freeroll Tournaments, the only one I have not made a withdrawal from is still Pokerstars which was the first site I tried and the only one I keep returning to.
Who knows, maybe one day I will take my money and run:)
