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.
