Sorry but i find this quite amusing
We've always played cards... like always... and since we got into 6th form and have practice we've all get pretty good. But the one game we've never really played much of until the last month or so is poker. Anyway we recently started playing Poker, and Texas... and 1 of my mates Dave (who i presume knew how to play b4...) is actually... .well he's bloody amazing!! Neway, we play for bottle caps (my mate Phil collects the metal 1s.. it's random ) but there's some kids in y12 who play for money, and they keep letting Dave play. Some of them aren't bad - but some really have more money than sense..... so far this week Dave is £35 up!!! :eek:

I love playing texas hold'em... it really is the daddy of all gambling card games. I used to play 3 card brag, but I'd never go back...

I've never played a cash game though i'd like to though, I'm fairly good. It'd be interesting to see how much my game changes with the fear of losing everything! Hehehe :cool:

Just go onto any internet poker room at about 2 or 3 in the morning our time. You are guaranteed to be in a room with at least one drunk American... and once you find them it's like taking sweets from a baby. I like to see me taking their money as a kind of taxation on them.

Yeah I play online at ladbrokes.com poker - it's pretty good cuz the minimum is only £5 to play, the most i've won in one day is about £60, but I think in the grand scheme of things i'm about £50 down... Be warned it can get v.addictive

Gambling is bad you shouldnt do it. Make love instead, much healthier for you, though probably just as bad for your bank balance!! lol!
