    I play on pokerstars pretty often. I'm sometimes aggressive sometimes not, depends....

    I'll play anything and sometimes I won't. ;)

    Look out for the vincinator with the prancing horse avatar.

    Great game, has entirely cured me of by craps and blackjack cravings, much better odds when you're playing against real people.

    I play hold em for hours on end after school. Im very conservative, but agressive only when im playing another conservative player. The worst beat i ever had was i had pocket aces and the flop was like 8 of hearts, 2 of spades, and 5 of hearts. The next card was an ace so i thought i had it in the bag but it turns out the other kid had a flush. What got me was that he showed no emotion so i couldnt get a a good read. what a waste 20 bucks

    We play for fun almost twice a week. Big hand last week:

    I was dealt pocket aces as big blind. Everyone folded except for small blind and person before him. I raised to double the blind pre-flop and they both called. Flop comes 9-6-X. Opening bet goes all in...ehhhh, ok, small blind calls, so I ponder for a minute and call as well. Since we're all all in with two of the guys pretty much even and going out if they lose we all flip.

    First guy shows pocket 6's. Big blind flips to show pocket 9's. Fourth street comes and it's insignificant. Fifth street...Ace baby! Wheeeeewwwwwwww, lucky draw there.

    It's all about the quad aces! :)


    I play far too much - About 5-7 times a week. My goal is to win one of the world series tournaments. The main event had 2500+ people this year - IT's getting too damn big! I liked it better with a few hundred players.

    Just won a tourney on poker stars. :)

    Jerry,

    I'm hoping to win entry one of these days. I play, once in a while, with a guy who came in second. There is a lot to learn.

    5-7 times a week, that's awesome. I'm down to 1 or 2 time permitting.

    ----------------
    you and your friend took all the decen cards and a man can't get a good hand for his plate anymore. ;)

    Nice! :)

    Which tourney did your buddy come in 2nd in? Was it the main event or one of the other world series events?

    It's cool that ESPN is showing some of the other events - Omaha, 7 card stud, Razz, etc. - Although I just stick mainly to hold em with the occasional Omaha.
