I started playing poker when I was a boy. Back then it was just a bit of fun without money. It was fun to be playing the same game that the adults were playing.
I played it with my brothers and sisters and cousins when I was young; and became quite good at it. When I was 14 or 15 I started playing with the adults. I have a very big extended family, and at the weekend my parents and aunts and uncles would get together and play poker. We would play with a small fee to enter, and play until one person had all the money. It meant that if you lost all your money you kept playing – you just couldn’t raise the bet. It’s a very sociable way to play, and fun; but it’s not really idn poker – there’s no bluffing.
A couple of years back I heard about playing no limit Texas Holdem online. I had been watching no limit Texas Holdem on the TV, and loved it. I wanted to play it so much! But I didn’t know the best places to play, or which poker site would suit me. There was no way of gauging which sites were the best. I just had to find some sites and try them out.
Nowadays there are websites out there that test out poker sites and let you know which ones are the best. I stumbled across a great one the other day.
This site gives each online poker room a score out of 10, and also gives a detailed description of the poker room and its advantages and disadvantages. I’ve used these recommendations and tried quite a few online poker sites now, and I agree with most of what this site says.
Now that I have the facts about where to play; and the poker skills I’ve accumulated over the years its time for me to go and win some money!
