Whoops ... in the middle of a Friday Night they passed an odd on to another bill that would attempt to make online gambling impossible.

Yep, poker fan here. Play online every now and then, although not much lately. Also play with mates every now and then while getting shitfaced.

Cheers.

So Cool Bob,

I love poker, My brother and I hold Texas Hold Em game every Wednesday night an i love battling new punks.

I am becoming very good at it. i believe the game is not all luck but requires skill as well. It's like shooting free throws. the more you play the better the success rate

I will share my best ever hand

I had suited 5-10 of diamonds, i felt i could either catch the flush or catch a straight so i played the hand out of the dealer position.

The flop came and it was

5 of hearts
5 of spades
5of clubs.

Everyone was in hysteria and i held my face very calmy. the turn card was an ace and bingo, i saw a lot of people play trying to play that ace and 3other people moved all in, when i decided to move all in from the dealer position. all 4of us pot commited people were like "oh no" there's 1 ace on the board but there could only be 3 other aces out of 4 people playing. the river came out being a king.

When i flipped my card it was 1 of the proudest moments in my life. 3 people left early and i was big stacked. i went on to win the game. But i must thank god for putting that Ace on the turn card otherwise i don't think i would have been skilled enough to get 3 other people "ALL IN COMMITED"

Would you please share a favorite hand you have played with me so cool bob?

What I know about poker is:

1.- Is a game.
2.- With cards and sh*t.

That's all.

Poker is a good way to spend a Friday night if you've got nothing to do. It is really interactive, as is any card game and something I'd like to do more often

Don't know how to play this game. I've tried it, but never understood on how to win or how you lose. Cards, money, and gambling men. I think that's what you need to play poker or am I wrong?

Yes i am not a good gambler, ( I have not tried my luck at the Casbar EVER)

But a goodway to practice gambling is against your friends (least you know the winnings are going to a good cause)

You might even be so kind to ask your "Old Mate Poker" buddy to shout you a beer down at the bar.

yeah. and people who play it wear shades. I can respect that just because of that. I don't get how they never break their sunglasses. I broke four pairs of sunglasses in the last week.

THANKS to OG for the private message "reminder" that "I" started a Poker conversation. I CONFESS .. I certainly didn't REMEMBER that I did ... although I do remember somebody suggesting it ...

Image
AND .. I haven't been getting any emails with all these postings.
Hopefully, I will NOW ..

Let's see .. What should I ADD ... FIRST ?

This link will probably BEGIN to tell ALL how "interested" I am in the "subject." Or perhaps This One

This link is probably entertaining, informative, etc. on the subject of ...
Is It A Sport?

All depends what your definition of "IS" "IS" ... which rhymes with ... it seems to me.

MY PRIMARY INTEREST ???

It's A Skill
Developing More And Better Skills Is One Of The Keys
To Each Of Us .. All Of Us .. Setting And Achieving Positive Goals
Better poker players Win Over Lesser Poker Players
It is NOT a Coin Flip Or An Odds Proposition That ANYBODY Can't Win

I will be revealing more of my own unique experiences with Poker, and Poker ONLINE, etc. AND more imporantly ALL the benefits that I think others might get out of participation in the setting and achieving of just ONE of MY Newer And Favorite Goals ...

Win A Million Dollars Playing Poker ..
It's something "I" think "I" can do and have a good idea how.
It's something "I" think "Anyone" Could do .. which I like ... because it's another opportunity to encourage folks to set and ACHIEVE ANY .. MANY Positive Goals .. That's My Favorite Thing !!!

Does anybody else think it possible, yet, that the secret to Peace in the World, is in Winning A Million Playing Poker ? In underhand free throws?
How 'bout the secret to somewhat lesser successes and/or solution to smaller problems ... like one or more of yours?

TRUTH IS

THIS MUST BE THE YEAR !!!

Would you please share a favorite hand you have played with me SoCool Bob?


I would be Happy to ... if I can think of one.

OK .. here goes ...

I was thinking of saying .. I don't have a favorite hand ... as though to say that in my poker playing I certainly would not be inclined to emphasize any one hand. The process of "winning" in Poker is actually ... a long one involving multiple decisions about many hands.

Image

However ... I certainly acknowledge that if I would continue to think about it I would undoubtedly be able to come up with one or two that were memorable ... probably for me, because of what they taught me ... for the first or second or third time ... or maybe one of the moments when I actually WON one of those MULTIPLE PLAYER GAMES which can involve .. a whole lot of folks. Winning a MULTIPLE PLAY Tournament does have the feeling of having overcome TREMENDOUS ODDS!

I recall now that one of the times I won one of these Multi-Player Tournaments ... 1,000 players or more ... ONLINE ... I never even got to see what happened. We were head to head, the hand came down, we quickly went all-in, near as I can recall it looked like a CERTAIN LOSER for ME ... my Attention got distracted, next thing I knew the cards were already gone and I was being declared The Winner !!!

Image

Which taught me, I guess, even I can, what they call, SUCK OUT !!! Image

The Tao Of Winning A Million Playing Poker
A little intelligence, a lot of skill and a little bit of luck and ANYONE can WIN one of these things.


Still .. the first answer that does come back is this one ...
I've got, and so do other poker players, names for hands. Any combination of two cards can have a name.

49 .. Forty Niners
KK .. Cowboys
22 .. Deuces
55 .. Speed Limit
10 2 ... The Doyle Brunson
99 .. Phil Helmuth
A 9 .. Gus Hansen
88 .. Monkey Balls ô¿~

ImageImage
Ace Ace ... American Airlines

My favorite hand therefore ... is one that begins with AA

AA ... SoCô¿ôL Bob
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

So ... in the course of pursuing my Win A Million Goal I have paused to reinforce all the other good things I've learned .. and thought ... so I've begun adding new names for some hands based on Scripture ... and/or other powerful lessons that I've learned that help me achieve things.

A) Gotta Put God First ...

ImageImage
Ace Ace ... has become for me .. God and The Son In Heaven Together
I have a way of "liking" that hand, now, regardless of who gets it ¤¿¤

As opposed to AK Image Image ... God and The Son on Earth

or KK ImageImage ... King of Kings

QQ Image Image ... Rice A Roni ... The San Francisco Treat etc. etc.

Of course ... 22 ImageImage .... is a celebration to me Image

222 .... ImageImageImage ImageImageImage !!!

Those, so far, are some of my comments on my favorite hands.

Image

AS FOR US / THE GS BUNCH ... I'm Becoming More Convinced


Image We Can Win This Thing ... One Way And/Or The OtherImage


ImageTHIS MUST BE THE YEAR !!!Image

ImageImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Which Warrior Player/Coach/Administrator you figure is the best Poker Player?

P.S. Which now very rich and famous man is said to have spent a great deal of his time in College ... playing high stakes poker?
