I can't stand card games, either playing them or watching them on TV.

I don't quite get it. Especially when people take games like that seriously, like my cousin. He was getting pissed because he was losing his own game of "scene it"



He's the head of his chess team, and math team.

But he needs to grow up a bit.......

Years ago our neighbors had a picnic/party and after eating people gathered around to play poker. My mum happened to mention that when play got boring she was apt to cheat. Oh. My. God. Dead silence. Everything stopped and everyone stared at her in utter horror. Apparently what to her was simply a game to them was deadly serious. I don't even think they were playing for money (because she wouldn't have played for money -- she figured life was enough of a gamble, she didn't want to gamble on a game). Go figure.

OMG RR I gave my son a poker set for Christmas.....each of his other 2 roommates also got poker sets! They've been having poker tournaments nightly for weeks (yea I can't wait for the grades from this last semester )....but I told my son to watch the Poker on TV and maybe pick up some pointers! He loves it!

The only poker that I would consider would be strip poker, with the right set of opponents.

But even then............

The only reason I was likin' it on TV is because I was just barely learning how to play and it helped alot to watch the tournaments on TV before I decided to hit the casino.

sicy, you went into a casino poker room?

i've lived in a gaming town for five years and never went into one. i've even had dealers who are patrons at the library where i work tell me they'd show me the proper table etiquitte and such, but i was still never brave enough to do it. it just seems too intimidating.

Well since I'm in California, its not really the same type of casino as in Nevada, but they do offer a large number of poker tables, as well as Century Blackjack ( ) and pai gow and those kinds of games. Hold 'em is the same as in Nevada because you are not playing against the house right, you're playing against other people, but Blackjack is all weirded out because you cant play against the house (that's illegal here) so they make it so that the players take turns being the dealer.. its kinda weird so I never bothered to learn that one.

I was scared my first night... lol.. but Jim helped me and now we go a lot and are actually getting to know the dealers and the regular gamblers there

I'd rather watch Lady's billiards over poker.
