The Poker thread

Post by Nick Barlow on Wed Feb 04, 2009 7:51 am

It's a game, and I know Herr Flair likes to play it - anyone else?

I use the power of the Time Lords to confuse my opponents...well, my ID on many sites is 'CosmicHobo', and I even have a picture of the Mighty Trout as my avatar on PokerStars. Sadly, it's very rarely recognised.

I play on Bet Fair and my ID is "RichFlair". Sometimes I'm fantastic and sometimes I'm awful. Came 1st out of 500 in a tourney the other week, yet at other times I barely last 5 minutes.

I'm more than a bit rubbish at online poker. And even worse in real life!

I play online sometimes only at the very cheap tournaments or sit and go's. I win sometimes but I'm a very cautious player.

I like Poker and occasionally have runs of luck. Generally, though, I play really well for about half the night and then get bored and reckless at which point I get scalped.

It's fun, though.

That's my problem - I'm nowhere near aggressive enough.

You definitely should, because apart from the occasional hand that like, I seem to be spewing cash everywhere at the moment...
