    I play myself, haven't in awhile though. Back at my old apartment we would have games for cash every couple weeks with people. Sometimes I'd do well, sometimes I'd get crap luck.

    I love Hold 'Em. I'm fairly good at it, and the comm background only helps in bluffing the shit out of people on a regular basis.

    I wish I didn't know your age, I admit it affects the way I read all your posts. :wink: 

    And yeah, I play Hold 'Em also. Most of my friends are way too into it for me to enjoy a casual game with 'em, but I'll play once in a while with them or at bar games. Nothing more than $20 buy-in or anything, though.

    I've been playing poker with my highschool buddies since '95

    Omaha, Hold'em, 7/27, Chicago, Stud, Draw and a bunch of others...
    Currently most games are Hold'em though. We were surprised to see it catch on so damned fast!

    I love holdem but I am not into cash games. I play on Pokerstars and FullTilt Poker free games from time to time. However I would love to start playing live poker so I can play the real aspect of poker: reading people.

    what is chicago?

    And you should listen to daniel negreanu. reading people is overrated. You are in good shape if you have good memory recall with hands that people play, betting patterns and seeing if their betting fits a story.

    I'm not a poker player at all. I once considered learning to play, and then poker got really popular a few years back, so I figured "why bother?"

    I'll stick with gin rummy.

    FTR, I'm not a full time poker player. I only play on the side nothing more than $10 games either. but with all the bad play, you'd be surprised at how much you can make doing this.

    Eh, it's not about money for me. I just like a friendly game of cards without the expectation of taking someone else's money through guile and deception.

    I had a good night out last time my buddies and I all played cards. We sat there drinking gin and smoking cigars, it was a good time all around.
