    Does anyone play? The past maybe 8 months I have been obsessed with poker(Hold 'Em specifically). Love it. Watch every tv show and constantly play online. I want to be a pro when I'm older.....I know, cute.
    Does anyone play online? I play at Full Tilt. Doing pretty good at the small stakes.

    Im actually interested in trying it out, i downloaded and practised the martingale system on roulette, but that was just practise (no money involved).

    Really interested me, sure to check it out when i have some cash i can burn

    You should play the Play Money at Full Tilt. You start off with 1000 chips with nothing but a pride value. You can also enroll in free tournaments (freerolls) which they actually pay you if you win. I got 3rd place out of 2700 and got $9...not much but its still cool.

    lol a friend of mine started doing that shit and he owed the bank 90$. dunno if he's paid them back, he didn't intend to, but if not then he owes them a shitload more now

    i'm against gambling but if you gamble, just gamble responsibly

    I saw this thread title and automatically guessed it was you dude. When poker just started getting popuar years ago, I thought it was too complicated to play... I never jumped on the bandwagon

    I started with $50 and my parents would only let me use $5 of that. I've now gotten up to $147 so I'm not in debt or anything.
    I cant wait to try to play stoned since I havent had weed during this time period unfortunately. I dont think I'll make that a habit though(playing high).

    My teacher(Mr. Flint) told us a story about how he had a bunch of coaches from the school come and play together, and apparently, one guy played, "donkey poker" or something like that. He said thats when you have shit cards but still play big. The guy with bad cards won, and the other guy got really mad and accused him of playing dirty and threw his chips everywhere and left.
    What I want to know is: is that really that bad? I thought that was exactly what poker was supposed to be? But the coach seemed to think that's not the right way to do it

    I guess it could be considered bad etiquette because youre just playing like a dumbass. If you were playing fake money that would be a jackass or donkey thing to do because its showing you dont care and that adds no deception or skill into the game.
    With real money that would be a strategy and sacrificing your own money.

    Gambling sucks, poker with the boys is always fun but I think it's pathetic that people can get addicted to such petty things as gambling. There are much better things to get addicted to if you like throwing away your money.
     

  16. what are you talking about? half the game of poker is not only knowing how to play your cards.. but also how to psych out your opponents.. its called a bluff.. im pretty good at pulling bluffs pretty well... but its easy to call them out too if the person makes odd betting

    The whole point was he wasn't even bluffing he was just playing idiotically because there was nothing to really loose.
     

  18. money or no money.. its still part of the strategy of the game.. that would be like someone getting pissed off at me while playing pool because i decided to call a "safety" even though we weren't playing for anything

    My friend's roommate makes bank playing online poker. We'll go out and get drunk, he'll just play poker. He can make over $200 a night and always makes at least 50. The man is a machine, but he spends his Fridays by himself online so who is the real winner???

    I said if its real money then that would be a strategy, although a dumb one.
