Ya how do we get on this?

I'm in a small tourney tomorrow. $60 min buy-in, i'll be starting with like $200. Everyone does like $100-$150 and it sucks to be the low guy. Me and a buddy always start high and usually one of us cleans house. We're of the few that play the players, not the cards. You can see just about everyone else playing with emotion. There's a few that will go all in and bluff, and I can usually read that shit like a book.

I usually get my ass kicked at the casino though, not that good yet I guess.

And contrary to popular belief, Facebook Hold 'Em is NOT a good place to practice. One kid always says he plays a ton on facebook. That shit cracks me up... It's a lot different when you're playing with stay at home moms, 14 year olds, and other people playing with fake money who have nothing to lose.

I have a friend who basically makes his living playing online poker. He didn't exactly do good in High School, dropped out of college, and has slight learning disabilities. He could never find his place in the working world, and after about a 5 year fight with a heroin addiction, took up online poker in rehab with his father's money. It was almost immediate that he figured out his talent, and it's basically his sole income aside from peddling a small amount of weed.

God I love Poker.
