Got familiar with the game by watching poker on TV.
My most favourite format was Poker After Dark, basically a homegame in a private room in the Belaggio in Vegas for Pros.
Learned a lot by watching the likes of Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Tom Dwan...
Used to watch every episode of the live coverage of the wsop
I started playing live poker in local Cardcasinos before I got into online poker
Now I only play online cause any room was shut down. I prefer live poker actually...
Really need to go to Bratislava for a weekend of live poker. Luckily Bratislava is nearby, basically a suburb of Vienna xD
But who's got the time...
