I have been playing poker since the age of 5 years old. 5-card draw was my first love. What age did you start playing poker? What type of poker was it?

Started Playing

I started casually at 17 and then got really into poker at 19 (when I started earning my own money to play with). I’ve played probably at least two hours a day since then.

I started playing poker 10 years ago. I was 27-28 years old.
But in general, I have been playing card games for at least 20 years.

I don't really remember at what age I started playing poker but I remember as a very young kid going over relatives houses watching them play poker regularly and love it. The first time I really started playing on the regular for money myself was in my early 20's.

I started playing poker this same year, from that moment it has become a passion, happy moments and sad moments when you lose hehe, it is a love-hate relationship with poker. I hope it remains forever more love than hate

I have played poker as far back as around 10 years old, just playing regular Texas holdem. As far as putting up my own money to play, I was around 16-17 when I started buying in for about 10-20 dollars for cash games with my friends. I am now 20 and for the past year I have been taking my game very seriously, with my best score being around $150 profit playing 1/2 in an Indian casino since I’m still under 21 lol. Hope in the next five years I can say my best score is in the 4 digits!

I started when I was 18 after watching a event of wsop on TV, it was a NLH game, so, it was the first type of poker that I've learned.

If I'm not mistaken, I started playing poker (No Limit Hold'em) when I was about twenty-four years old (2010). The interest arose when I watched some final tournament tables on television. I don't remember which tournaments, but I remember that I watched Gus Hansen and Phil Ivey more than once.

I started playing poker 4-5 years ago, I was 40 years old. I am 45 years old now. Over the last two years, I have become more patient and have significantly improved my skills. To a large extent, all the improvements have been due to my participation in our wonderful community.

I started playing poker when I study at university. I just play poker with friends for fun. Now poker is still one of my hobbies and I think it is not bad if you can manage your money the right way. I studied many things from poker such as controlling my emotion, having patience, ... they help a lot in my life.

In high school I played some free games.
Just to see the logic, to learn games.
For money I began about 20 I think.
There are always some waves of life for everyone)

I don't remember exactly how old I started,I was about 23-34 years old.
In my opinion, no matter what age it starts. As history shows, you can win the WSOP at both 20 and 50 years old :D
