My first Texas hold ’em

Today I played my first Texas hold ’em poker game at my brother in law. The other guys had played for a while and I sure felt like the rookie I was. We played three games and I actually won it all at the last game. It wasn’t a lot of money involved so no one left the game too poor.

It was fun and I will surley play this game again. Since I won the first time I will probably never win again. But it is not the game or the money that’s important, it’s beeing around friends having fun.

    A bad poker strategy is to play too many hands. Most players play way too many hands. You will win more by folding more often. This sort of discipline is difficult for the recreational player. If you read the experts’ books, you’ll see how they preach patience and discipline, and you’ll be shocked by how many hands they say to throw away.
