The poker thread
 
Is there some poker addicts on here ?

I admit being one, I play about 30 hours a week (live and online) and make some money with (though I'm far from making a living with).

I am a huge fan of HSP (High Stakes Poker) cash game show on GSN and NBC poker after dark sit and goes too...

My favorite pro players are: Greenstein, Negreanu, Farah, Ivey and Antonius.

I'm looking forward to playing the WSOP main event in Vegas this year :cool:

so you like Negreanu :yeah:

i'm not the kind to play (i'm not allowed yet :o) but when my net is down or when i'm bored i use to play texas hold'em on my pc. and also give my mates some poker lessons in free classes at school :devil:

i used to like Ram Vaswani (is that spelled right :o?) what happened to him :awww:? i haven't seen him in a major competition (as the masters series or WCH ) for...like 2 years :o maybe my tv coverage is not proper :o.

Anyway,Texas hold'em is best style me thinks :)

Yes, no limit hold'em is my favourite game too, by far...

I use to play Omaha online too, very few people master that game, and that's easy money nowadays, poker rooms are very fishy :) ...

No, my bankroll is too small yet, I can't afford it :sad: I play mainly for fun actually, I once lost 1000$ in a game and that hurted, I don't want to do such a mistake again...

I'm more into Omaha High or 7 card stud, of course go back to basics and play Texas hold'em every now and again as well.

I used to spend a ridiculous amount of hours playing online, still play but not as much these days.

So you should be aware it's hardly a game that involves luck... :o :angel:

If you're playing against the house, of course it is down to luck.
