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.

My first royal flush

The first royal flush of my poker career. My father who played for a living for 30 plus years has hit 7 royals. Isn't that amazing, only 7 in a career where you play everyday.

And yes that's my screen name and yes I wish I was in a $30/60 game. hehe, $20/40 was softer than $30/60 yesterday.

Oh and to answer a few questions in advance.

1.) Yup, if I see your stats and you're a pigeon limping in with weak hands I'm raising from late position with very marginal hands to isolate you. :)

2.) Yup I'm putting in as many bets as I can with 2nd nut straight and a flush draw. If you're not I think you should sign up for my poker lessons.

Send the chips!
