Greetings from the west!

Postby conquer001 » Tue Feb 10, 2009 12:27 am

Hello everyone! Glad to be part of this great community, but let's start off with a quick yet exciting introduction of yours truly.

I got introduced to Poker, specifically Texas Hold'em Poker when a friend sent me an invitation to play the very same game online via Facebook, about 2 weeks ago. Not exactly what you expect but I decided to give it a shot.
Unfortunately, I don't know nuts about the game and so read through the help page and got myself started playing within minutes. Soon, I simply feel in love with the game.

Coincidentally, my colleagues in camp (I'm an NSF btw) invited me for a Poker night at one his friend's house and I agreed, pressing the fact that I will only be willing to lose $50 over the fact that I'm simply looking to get some real experience in a real live game.

Sure enough the weekend came and I stepped up to the challenge. I can't put it in words but the best I could come up with is that it's so exciting! Such an adrenaline rush, like chess on steroids. Fortunately, I was able to escape unscathed from the table of experienced players, some even aggressive, and returned home with a pretty healthy profit too.

Thus, I decided to try to get to know more about the game in more in-depth and am currently considering procuring myself some decent number of normal chips for playing with family and friends, which is what I am currently doing now.

So there you have, a potential eager player in the field. I seek both guidance and friendship from the 'kakis' in this forum.

aiya! Facebook no kick with most, if not all, the players treating the virtual chips like, well, virtual. There's no reading of players, no complexity, no humane touch to it. I'd prefer a real live game anytime.
