    i know it's not a video game but it's still a game also who gives a shit poker is great

    there is nothing better in my boring adult life than... sex, but playing texas hold em with a few other buddies on the weekends is a pretty close second. it's a great game and i enjoy it and would like to see if y'all in this internet community enjoy it as much as i do.

    Part of poker is getting tipsy with your friends... Being sober and alone and having a poker set isn't even close to doing it right :( I'm sorry you haven't been able to experience poker in its finest, Tet..

    Also, some hold'em with good buddies and some brews sounds like a fantastic night :D I have had many fun nights with that combination... I usually lose about 4 dollars in pennies because I just suck at poker and have the worst luck in the world, but whatever... it wasn't about the pennies anyway.

    for real tho even if you don't want to play with money you don't have to, and depending on your state's laws it's more legal that way

    Tat your new avatar is great.


    But yeah poker is the shit. Back in the day I used to play almost every weekend with the homies. We were all young and broke at the time so we would just play for fun. We strictly played hold-em and our games would last ours. We had a friend who was 21 though so we would all pool our money together and take him to buy us some brew. Many a nights were spent just drinking and playing for bragging rights.

    After about a year and a half of playing like that, once we all had jobs, we started just setting up a $10 buy-in game and playing that way. We would designate value to each color of the chips (5, 10, 25, 50) and raise the blinds after every 30 minutes or so. That was when I actually started to care about the game. I read multiple books on it and watched as much informational video as I could, also started to watch it whenever I saw it was on TV (though you don't learn much that way). 

    Soon enough I had about $150 bucks I wanted to gamble with and we went down to one of the 18+ casinos near me since we weren't 21 yet. I just played in the $1/$2 game for a couple hours and ended up walking out with around $350 bucks. I made around $50 an hour lol it was insane. Seeing as I had just come up, we figured what better way to celebrate than the strip club! We drove about 40 mins to the nearest 18+ one and got a booth and chilled there for a couple hours. Blew through all my money except enough to get some god damn California burritos on the way home. Fucking amazing night.

    I ended up playing in Vegas at the Excalibur when I went for my 21st birthday, but nothing too magical happened then. I was more worried about getting shitfaced than I was about winning hands to I lost about $200 in an hour or so. Decided to just walk the strip and bullshit with people I met. Turned into a fun night though.

    I've recently started working again and I've got this itch that won't subside. I desperately want to go down to Commerce or Morongo and try my skills again. I'd only take around $200 or so, something I can definitely accept losing, if only to experience it again in a live setting. Maybe closer to the holidays I could go, when there might be more fish out there visiting. We'll see.

    Fuck I love poker. Phil Ivey is my idol for real though. He's astonishing.

    Cheers dudes.
