Default Poker anyone?

Anyone like to play? Home games? Casino cash games? Tournaments?

I've played for years but just entered my first tourney and loved it. Didn't finish in the money, but I made the final table.

I like home games and work games - haven't played any tourneys, but you made the final table but didn't finish in the money???

I'm up to almost 1,000,000 in chips on facebook poker (little advice for there - don't bluff and when you hit the nutz bet big, the suckers will always pay you off; also, do raise pre-flop with huge hands, some numbnutz will call you with 7/2 and bust you - wait to hit your hand)

EDIT - yes I know you can't cash out your Facebook chips....

I play Texas Hold 'Em... best I've done in a tournament was second in a small tournament in Vegas for a couple hundred. I generally do pretty well in Vegas in non-tournament play though.

We have a riverboat casino nearby, and it's pretty difficult for me to win much there, but in Vegas there's a lot of easy money at the tables.

I used to run work games cash and tourney style. I play online at full tilt. Only claim to fame is winning an omaha hi freeroll they had on full tilt.

I'd gladly play Euchre over Poker nowaday..

I was a fairly successful amateur for years, and lived in Las Vegas for a few years as a wannabe Pro. Then the TV shows came..

I don't play poker anymore.

I used to play a bunch back in college but have not really played since then. I have tried to get a game going more recently but because of espn all anyone wants to play is texas hold'em and I hate that game. So I will probably not be playing again till espn takes that crap off the air.

We have a monthly game or so around here. Otherwise it's just to kill some time online at PokerStars.
