Hours and hours of boredom puntuated by moments of sheer terror...
 
We have all heard the phrase, "hours and hours of boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror".
I have taken on a pastime that is very similiar. Poker. If you play good cards you may spend, "hours and hours of boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror". It's not boring by any means but you do have the moments of terror. Easy game to learn.
Playing a few friends at home has been a lot of fun. Most of the time it's a tournament for a few bucks.
I recently started playing online.
Anyone else playing? I love chatting about poker, and I think my wife is sick of it!:)

Poker?
I thought you were talking about marriage.
(Other people's, mine's great, thanks. Whew)
Been tempted to try online poker some time. How do you recommend starting?

I would start by joining a site and playing "play money" for a bit to get an understanding of the game.

Just don't play like the ones on TV.

I can suggest a few sites if you want?

It's alot of fun. I have read a few books and that really helped. I have even played a bit on a few layovers.

Would anyone be interested in having a PPRUNE online poker team? I can set one up. For anyone unfamiliar with this - it means we would have a poker team, and compete online against other teams. I think it would be something we can all enjoy.

If there is some interest, I'll set up a blog explaining how to go about joining. As long as the moderators are okay with this....

Let me know people! :ok:

This has already been done ! I played a few of the chaps from Military... And I won ! I'm on Ladbrokes and definitely up for a game. I'll watch this space.
