I first played poker with my brothers when I was about 14. At first, my brothers took all my "money", but I soon became the best out of the 3 of us. I played online for real money when I was 18.

I started to play poker with 22 years old.

I always liked it since I saw Rounders. But I learned later, and I've been playing it until nowadays.

I started when I was 15 years old. First of all, I was playing only with virtual chips, because I did not know very well the rules and was very excited when I saw that I won the pot, regardless the fact it was with virtual chips.:D:D:D

Then, I started to participate only in freerolls and managed to win some dollars sometimes and was thinking that when I log-in with real money in real tournaments will smash them there, but usually was turned out in the reality and I was thinking that everything was rigged:D:D:D:D. Very beautiful times were.

I started playing poker in 2009 when I was 25 years old. I do wish I learnt poker from an earlier age. My family are against poker so I play without them knowing.

I just enjoyed the ongoing promotions that poker had to offer and that made me hooked on the game.

All you young folks are just getting started!! Good for you. I hope you enjoy poker for the rest of your lives.
I am 74 years old; probably among a handful of senior citizens on Cardschat.
My poker 'career' began 15 years ago, when I was 59 years old. Heck. a lot of posters here are less than half that old.
A friend had started up a home game and when he explained the low limits the group was playing, I got interested. TV poker shows had gotten me interested, and I always saw the poker rooms when we were in casinos.
Maybe if I had started when I was young, like most of you, I would be a better player than I am now.
At my age, learning takes longer, and my senior attention span for studying new material has reverted to that of a four year old.
If you see me on the pokerstars tables, please take it easy on this old guy. Remember - respect your elders.

I play for a long time. I’ve been playing without interruptions for almost 10 years. In childhood, I played with friends at one time. Then we grew up and everyone went about his business. He took up poker for the second time in 50 years when the Internet appeared.

If I'm not mistaken, I started playing when I was 28 years old, but never wanting to be a professional, just to learn one more board game, little by little the poker fever was entering and one time I was about to classify a complete package in the Bahamas but I know it had been by pure luck, there I decided to learn a little more, and I have dedicated myself to playing it more the last three years here, now I am 40 years old and I really hope to become a pro one day although be online poker :)

First time i played was back when I was in college .. on my 19yo... But never really have much of a thought about it. It was just for fun and absolutely no money to play... It's funny because we used to bet snacks LoL..
but I only started studying this year, studying people while playing poker, studying the math behind it e these things.... Never made a good money from it but this is when I like to say I started playing poker for real, in 2020
