    Hi All

    I'm well chuffed. Last night I won a poker tournament. It cost me $5 to enter and I won $225.

    The last table went like a dream. I limped onto it in 10th place, with only 12,000 chips. The blinds were 1500/3000 by this time, so I didn't have long to make a move. The next hand I got two queens. Two people went all-in and I called it. Out came another queen and I was in 7th place, with a lot more chips. As the game went on, people kept knocking each other out, while I just kept quiet. It then was down to 3 of us. I had about 40,000 chips and the other two had well over 100,000. After a few hands one of them went all-in and I hoped the other would take him out, which he did.

    I was really pleased, but only having 20% the chips of the other person, was happy to come 2nd. I got a few good hands and played really aggressive, the opposite to how I'd been playing, and I think gave the other guy a fright. I crawled up to get just ahead of him in chips, and got 9 8 suited. I played the hand and 8J came out. He must have had a J as he placed a reasonably small bet, so I called it. Then joy, out came the 10. He put in a bigger bet, and I thought the odds of him having 9Q were slim so I went all-in. He called and I won!

    Great fun and a nice profit!

    Don't know why this Texas Hold 'em stuff has taken off.

    Much prefer draw or even stud.

    Not so much faffing about!

      That's the point! You can see up to five cards on the table, so it puts in the element of bluffing possible fllushes, straights etc. The skill is to weigh up if the other person is bluffing or not.

      It's also very exciting. I only play in £2 - £5 tournaments, but it still gets my heart going! You can even enter tournaments that link via satellite to the WSOP (World Series of Poker) so you could even end up winning a £25k holiday in Las Vegas with free entry to a WSOP 10K tournament. All for a two quid stake!

      It's also about weighing up the percentages of winning a hand, and if your hand can't be beaten, then getting the maximum out of other people for it.

      I want your chips - ALL YOUR CHIPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                Whoops!

                Hi Everyone

                So there I was last Sunday, thinking I'm the queen of poker having won $25 on the net. I then get this great idea of going to a real casino for a nice Sunday aftertnoon out.

                Unfortunately I came home £200 less then what I went with. My husband won't let me go now........

                  I thought you had more sense than that! Don;t you knwo the only real winners at a casino are the owners?


                  Talking of sure things just got an e-book on sports Arbitrage. Basically you use the fact that there are loads of on-line bookies to work out games etc. where you can place bets on both teams so that no matter who wins you get more than your stake back!

                  It utilises the fact that different bookies place odds differently so quite often you can place bets of around £90-£95 and be guaranteed £100 back!

                  Perhaps you should try that admin. You may be the bees knees at online poker but you obviously ain't up to face to face stuff. Bet it was the condom hanging out of your nose that blew your chances!

                    Where do I get the book?

                    I lost it against other people - not the casino.

                    Thanks for the tip!

                      Another Win

                      Hi Poker fans

                      It was a Friday night, and a young lass from Yorkshire entered a $3 poker tournament, that gave the winner a free entry into a $50 tournament. There were 168 people in this, so not an easy task to do. Our hero incredibly won the tournament, and took her seat at the final on Sunday evening.

                      With a diet coke in her hand, she sat down and focused on the task ahead. How could you get to the top 20 out of over 180 people, where the money was? With cunning, cheek, and a good bit of luck she thought.

                      Not only did she reach the final twenty, but got to the top table. In 7th place, she went all-in with the chips on pocket eights. This was a must move, as she was short stacked, and the blinds were thousands by this time.

                      The call came from someone with Ace King, and it was roughly a 50:50 chance. Unfortunately our hero lost to a king on the turn, but she got a nice surprise message from the web site owners. It said: -

                      Well done on coming 7th place - your account will be credited with $400

                      So that's how a mere $3 dollars was turned into $400.

                      Get in !!!!!!
