Poker is the big craze these days especially Texas hold ’em. There is at least one televised tournament showing on TV at any given time. People of almost all ages are playing poker. Texas hold ’em is not about gambling, its about skill and the strategies used in each game. I’ve only been playing for a few months and have won some and lost some.
Texas hold ’em is tense. A single game can be as quick as playing for one hour or last longer than 8 hours. I’ll admit that I enjoy playing, but its can be very stressful; mentally and physically. Poker is probably one of the few games that can break anyone down. In a Texas hold ’em game don’t be surprise to see some sort of commotion from the most passive people you know. Sometimes you just have to remind yourself its just a game. I promised myself I would not play anymore, but recently, due to peer pressure and the nostalgia of playing in the past was overwhelming, and I succumbed and played a couple of games. It was fun and I had a great time. Can’t wait to play again… but not for a while.
