Poker? I Hardly Know Her

What a month February has been. I got some sort of flu and was laid out for almost a week. Still catching up.

The good news is that during my down time, the Husband taught me how to play poker. Texas Hold 'Em, to be exact.

I think he's created a monster.

Unlike in my work and personal life (in which I'm extremely conservative and risk-averse), I'm apparently a high-risk, live-on-the-edge poker player.

I bet on every hand. I never fold. I throw those chips into the pool like they're candies.

I get all excited, even when I have nothing valuable in my hand. I raise the bet all of the time.

As a result, my opponents get really confused. They think I couldn't be so foolish to bluff on certain hands, and as a result, I keep them on their toes.

Yeah, sure I still lost over and over again.

But at least it happened quickly and painlessly!



wait until you're on a beginner's streak then they'd be really confused!

hope you are feeling better now.

My husband recently taught me too. I play the same way. He calls me an "elephant." (he is playing the World Series of Poker Circuit Event later this month)
