I just won a grand at a casino
    #4628474 - 09/07/05 02:40 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

So my friend had been going to this casino randomly, and winning a few hundred when he went, so I figured Id give it a shot. I of course only go to a casino to play no-limit hold em as Im not some kind of pussy. So anyways I bought in for 200, and started playing against these people. I lost 40, in the first few hands, which is no big deal. I was feeling the table out, seeing if it was loose, tight, how individual people played etc.. After an hour of playing I figured almost everyone out. I ended up winning a grand there. Pretty ridiculous, hopefully I dont get addicted to this.

Getting addicted to winning money? Hardly. If you know how to play hold-'em, it can be a great way to make money. I make about 400$ a week playing online.

it really is my 2nd job now.  but its a whoel differnt style of playing when you are online so dont jump right in.  i just started to play $30/$60 on Partypoker  but in a few weeks i think i am going to try $100/$200.  thats where the big guns play.  every pot is well over $1000 and people at the table sitdown with $20,000-$30,000 most of the time.  i fig you need atelast $5,000 if you play super super tight or $10,000 if you want to be able to splash around.  min buyin is $1,000 i think with $30,000 being the most.  i once say a guy on that was playing on 2 tables and had over 45k on each.  it was nuts.  but if anyone wants to try there luck online i know at partypoker if i send you a friend thing you get an extra $25 when you sign up.  min depoist is $50 i think.  they have all kinds of games there to play everythign from $10/nl to.50/1.00 blind games and like i said for the hgh rollers they go all the way up to $2,000/nl and $100/$200limit/  also the best part about it is all the tournys you can play it.  something for everyone.  but dont play thinking you are going to win money.  think of it as having fun.  Spend $50 to have some fun for a few nights as aposed to going out with the g/f for a night and spending alot more than that  :thumbup:

have fun

Yup. If you play poker for fun, you'll lose money most likely. I enjoy playing, but I don't play for the rush or the thrill of it. I can have three or four windows (tables) open and play a 1-2$ blind no limit game and just rake the cash in. Poker is about making the correct decision constantly. Nothing else. The type of poker that you have to play to win big isn't "fun", per se. I enjoy the money, not the game, per se. Check out "The Psychology of Poker" by Dr (the book isn't near me now) Alan Spoon maybe? Also, www.twoplustwo.com has GREAT information. Dave Negranu(sp), Sklansky, other guys like that are GREAT authors about strategy and game play. "super secrets of poker" is a classic.

all great books. i have been thinking if i can turn my "roll" into about 50k i would quit my job and play for a living. right now though my plan is to keep working and get a better job (soon if everythign goes as planned) and play in my downtime.

playing poker is a "hard way to make an easy living" the only real downside i see to this is if you get burned out.. then what?

Do coke and play. I do that at casinos all the time. A, ah, a certain casino in AtCity knows whats up and they let me use the downstairs "executive bathroom". basically where all the cokeheads go. Three toilets, but LOTS of nice shiny clean flat surfaces

I find coke makes me play worse. Im a coffee and alcohol man. Alcohol in extreme moderation though, I use it mostly for the taste.

Reminds me of an episode of Cops I saw a long time ago. Cop pulls into a dive bar, heads right for the bathroom and catches this dude about to snort a line off the urinal. Classy.

Wipe that toilet off and cut a line right on the urinal. Whats bad about that? I am sure you have eaten something that has dropped on the ground before.

Coke and online poker is amazing. The real site to go to to actually play the best online poker players there are is pokerstars.com. It is said that the best online players play there. I have trouble playing newbies, but playing a good player I am equal.

I prefer playing people that aren't as good as myself. I'm not proud, I play for money.

I do better playing the better players because there not chasing shit. It hurts to be all in with the nut flush on the flop then someone calls because they hit top pair, then they pick up the boat on the turn and river. Shit like that.
