Playing real poker, for real money!

Pacific Poker was just the warmup act and last night I got to play poker for real, with real people and for real money, face-to-face around a table. We played what seemed to be a loose interpretation of Texas Hold ’em and all put some money in a pot and then took an equal number of chips. Whoever was left with all the chips at the end took all the money. It was so much better than online poker which was probably a lot down to the fact that we didn’t take it too seriously; if you start in the frame of mind that you’re going to lose your money then betting is much less of a worry.

Of course, I may not have enjoyed it quite so much if I hadn’t come out £90 richer than when I started…
