Online Poker and the Family

Over the past year, I’ve had some of the most fun times playing Texas holdem poker online. I started out as a player who knew very little about the game, but over time I improved and could win money while playing it. Now I’m having some pretty fun games against people that are pretty tough players, and although I lose some games, I still win a lot of them and it helps line my pockets. I’ve earned enough money from playing to buy myself parts for a new computer, and I’m going to start saving for a trip overseas.

I tried to get my parents into the game of poker by teaching them how to play, but they couldn’t get the hang of it. They just don’t have the patience to sit through a game of poker. It doesn’t help that the only card games they are willing to play are bid whist and gin, and they’ll only do those with real life cards. They love to play solitaire on the computer, but that’s not really something people look to when they want to make some bets and win a lot of money. I think they’ll be stuck with their old games till the end of time.

On the other hand, my sister has been a bit more receptive to playing poker and has been doing well at making bets online. To be honest, I’ve been avoiding playing against her, because she has a habit of gloating too much whenever she beats me at anything. When we would play video games as kids, she would always mention the fact that she beat me in a racing game or a fighting game. If she was able to be me at online poker, she would never let me hear the end of it.
