Yes, I've been able to play for about 18 months now, and can deal properly as well in Texas Hold 'Em. They hold a tournament at our local pub, but I can't afford the weekly fee (£10)
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
Let me in for a minute, you're not my life but I want you in it

Yeah. Can play, but me and my mates normally play blackjack (not 21 blackjack, Americans) because its not as complicated and only requires a pack of cards.

I play sometimes with friends. I'm usually quite good but we never do more than a £5 buy in each, with 6 or 7 of us at most. I also play poker on facebook occasionally.

I doubt I'd ever do it for serious money anyway, I'm nowhere near good enough to do it at any kind of serious level.

Play all the time; only £5 or £10 pots between 6 - 10 of us.

We mainly play hold'em, but have dabbled in omaha, 7 card stud and 5 card draw.

Well up for a UG poker game as well

I like it a bit. It is a bit of a slippery slope though, I'd never want to get into gambling.

Online poker can be fun but it is such a time killer and often half the time is spent waiting or people making ridiculous decisions.
#19
I don't get the fascination with poker. I play every now and then but I would never bet large amounts of money on a game. Unless you're amazing at reading people's reactions, there's a lot of luck involved. Knowing basic probability can only get you so far.

Don't feel too bad, a lot of times it's actually easier to play against real people.

I would play poker more often if everyone wasn't obsessed with Texas Hold 'Em, I can see why they always use that for TV but it's one of the least fun version of poker I've ever played.

I play a lot of texas hold em with my relatives when they're in town... In fact, I won over 80 dollars throughout their Christmas visit.

I play, though i only started for money about nine months ago, and about a year before that on triplejack, as theres no age limit but no real money. i probably have the safest style of play possible. I rarely play hands that like 8,9 offsuit, and dont usualy play them onsuit either. Hell, i dont play A,? offsuit much either, and i never play low pairs.

Currently i play on PKR (the 3D one which always seems to be on ug's ads) under the name Polythene. Say hi if you see me

Its very slow, especialy as i play at the lowest blind levels, but it works in ring games. In nine months play, and i play about a night or two per week, i have made a massive eleven dollars! At least its a profit, amplified greatly by the pound colapsing much faster than the dollar in that time!

However, i have only won one tournament in my life, which was a multi table on triplejack when i kept going all in as my dad needed the computer, but i won each hand, so dad let me continue as my stack was much bigger than anyone elses! Sadly, its also the only multi table tournament ive rached the money in. Im constantly top 20%, but the tournys i enter all pay top 10%, or less in freerolls. I just about break even on single tables.

Ive never played properly at a real table either.

It would be nice if i could make more of a profit though. Does anyone have some decent strategies for both multi and single tournament play?
