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.

Let's put it all in perspective

Chattin' it up w/ Pops over dinner yesterday and I suddenly came to an amazing revelation. Back in the day you saw about 30-35 hands an hour vs. about 60 hands per hour now. That's about twice as many hands per hour. Plus you can play in multiple games simultaneously.

So if I play in 4 games for a year full time I'll have seen as many hands as a guy playing for 8 years full time. Let's call it 6.5 to 7 years since I won't always be in 4 games, etc.

Doesn't that blow you away?
