Anyone play? Online or at the casino's or at thier house? I play at www.pokerstars.com (I have no connection with this site other than they take my money :)) My roomate played a $20 entry tourney about 440 people signed up. He came in 1st got $2,100. I entered a $36 satalite tourney last night and won. I didn't win money but won an entry to a $200 tourney on sunday :) Now if I can keep my wits together sunday I'll be a very happy person :) Anyone who like playing cards should check this site out. Great for tourney's (all types nit just NL holdem) Check it out.

I love this game. My friends and I play every Wednesday night in the basement of my father pet shop. One saturday we decided to have a no limit tournament with 10 guys that play often. After 7 hours I took 1st. I just picked up Power Poker by Doyal. It covers all basis for poker but you should especially pick it up if you like Texas, it's certainly helps me. I'm actually really good at Texas and I enjoy it very much. Not much sweeter than the flop. Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.

By the way did anyone see the 4 7's in the World series on the Travel Channel? That World Series was the most impressive I've seen yet.

:cheers:

:poker: :D

it is kinda fake money. They pay 10 grand to get in and they get play money. Can't get up from the table with the cash in front of you :)

good luck down there. I'm not a huge fan of limit holdem tourneys but the game itself is great :)

Just like Red said.......

Two different games, limit and no limit!

The biggest problem with online poker is you can't see your opponents......which works both ways. These tourneys don't give you enough time to study the players.........hopefully you get some powerful hands that hit the flop.

Remember.....the 3 P's ( Power, Patience, Position )

When you start to play with the big boys, the complexity of the game really gets interesting!

Hold em, Omaha, 7 card Hi Low Stud addict ;) ;)

I have a poker game at my house every last Friday of the month. We play poker games, including Texas Hold 'em. I plan to enter some local Texas Hold 'em tourneys, and am considering the online poker thing. :cheers:

You've got to know when to hold em, know when to fold them, know when to walk away... Know when to Run...


Sorry couldn't help myself...

I have a group of friends that play every other weekend. Low buy in (usually $10-20), so it doesn't hurt too bad if you lose every time. We can usually get in 3 games a night. I seem to come in 2nd place all the time, and of course it's winner-take-all :lol:
