Poker?

Ok seen a few threads that talk about poker but need one for the addicted, couple of questions:

Who plays online for money or play, if so what site?
Live games in the Casino?

I play online for play money a few days a week, also play in the casino for real money one or two nights a week here in Sydney, 5/10, 10/20 and 5 pot limit.

We should have Org poker night for fun(play money) and bragging rights, fill a table at pokerstars.net? I'm in Oz but I could stay up late on the weekend to play and kick some org ass

Re: Poker?

I play on PokerStars.net a lot (play money only; for real money, I prefer playing face to face). Also play on XBox Live quite a bit.

I've only played in a casino once, but I plan to do it more often. I came in 4th in a Texas Hold 'em tournament (just out of the money). Spent the rest of the time at the $2/$2 Hold 'Em tables; was up about $60 at one point; up $20 or so when I left the table.

Re: Poker?

I play for real money most of the time a PartyPoker. I also have some real money in UltimateBet. I've played on FullTiltPoker and PokerChamps, but always find myself back at PartyPoker for some reason.

I'll play on XBox too, I like playing for fun and real, it's all about seeing the cards for me. I've been to Vegas once and got second in a Freeze-out tourney at the Lexor (won like $500 or something) Otherwise there’s always somebody having a weekend garage tourney (which I'm way up)

Gotta love No Limit Texas Hold'em

Re: Poker?

got a poker set (with chips and stuff) a few weeks back, and we've really started to enjoy playing with our group of friends. Been watching the world poker tour on cable, and may start playing those rules, looks like fun...

Re: Poker?

I've been playing a lot of Texas Hold 'Em on my cell phone. I'm badly addicted (it's not real money) but there are still a couple things I don't understand.

Such as:

When and how many times do you bet and raise?

And then there's this asshole...

Smart man when I played in a casino I bought in for $100 was up to roughly $320 then lost it all in 1 hand cuz some called my all in bet with known trip Q's when all he had was pocket 2's with just the river card to come......only 2 cards in the deck would win the pot for him and sure as 2 came on the river, guess I was the since he won the pot.

You can bet once each time the cards are dealt.. during the one game u can bet once when u get your 2 cards. once when the flop (3 cards) is dealt, once when the turn card is dealt and once more when the river card is dealt.
During any betting session if someone else decides to raise the pot you can choose to meet that amount and put more on top or you can just put the amount that was raised or you can fold obviously. If no one else raises then the next card is dealt.
Hope that makes sense

That's the truth. It's a bitch waiting for pages to load when you are used to broadband.
