#26. Play Texas Hold’em at a casino/ friendly tournament

Posted Jan 06 2010 12:00am

Who knew? I’m no card shark, but I didn’t think there was really life after gin rummy. It started about 4 years ago when my old job started a Texas Hold’em tournament through the employees. I had no idea what was going on. But I knew I liked it. And the pot wasn’t too bad either! Even had a trophy! I sought out other friends of mine to teach me. Went online, played a little there (not with real money, duh). Its fun!  I tried 5 card stud poker, just wasn’t the same rush as Hold’em.

I have also never been to a casino, even though I have Foxwoods & Mohegan Sun relatively close. I have quite a few friends and family that go there, for fun really, not for profit :)

So this is my year. I’m not looking to win, I’m just looking to play, with real people. If I lose, I lose (and hopefully not a lot). I’ve been watching Face the Ace on NBC, with Soprano’s Steve Schirripa, its pretty good. Amateurs against professionals. With all their brilliant advertising, I decided to give it a try online. Its pretty good there too! So, I’d say I would be at an intermediate level, still with a little beginners luck trailing with me.

So Lady Luck, follow me through this journey, who knows, I just may be the next Jennifer Harman !
