The Poker Game of Life

Poker and scotch on the rocks. Below are my reflections on life and poker. My journey from $4-8 as a past time to $30-60 for serious money and my life experiences in between.

Welcome to my thoughts regarding Texas Hold ‘em Poker. Since this is my first entry I should give you a little background as to who I am. I’ve been playing poker for most of my 26 year old life but only seriously for the last 2 years. It all started one day when my friend wanted to go play poker at a casino. I suggested my Dad’s casino (my Dad is a part owner in a mini casino here in Seattle) and off we went. To my surprise my Dad was actually sitting in the $4-8 hold em game and we sat down and played.

I then spent the next 1.5 years losing money and almost gave the game up. A serious talk with my Dad got me back in the game and then suddenly everything clicked. Now i'm a serious winning player.

I'll go into more detail regarding my story as I continue to post. I write here in hopes that you can be entertained and laugh at my writings, learn from my agony, and hopefully enjoy my success. Good luck to you and I hope you like the posts.
