    i play real poker. not online.

    when we dont want to bet with cash we play drinking poker. whoever loses drinks. fun way to get smashed. we also mix it up between texas, 5 card and chinese. (y) (y)

    We have a weekly night with all the lads with whisky, cigars and poker. I bought some chips from Fuzimiao flea market so we could do it properly. Good once you figure out how tells work, and then you can get into the game more. We usually play 3 card brag and 5 card Texas hold 'em. I also like to play Indian Poker, best drinking game around (y)

    The game is basic one card poker, whoever has the highest card wins. The twist is that you stick the card facing out on your forehead (lick it on the back so it sticks), so that everyone can see your card except you. Lowest card loses and drinks a shot as forfeit. You can fold, but if you have the highest card after you fold, you drink a shot as forfeit. The more you play, the drunker you get, and the drunker you get, the harder it gets to concentrate on the other player's card stuck on heads (y)

    There are various rules around, but these are the rules we've been playing since my brother taught me how to play in high school.

    Yeah I play - used to play online but now play mostly with friends and at a few tournaments - always Hold 'Em though...

    Moneys been a bit tight lately so not played many tournaments recently, but need to get back into it, best I ever did was finish 5th out of a tournament of 70 players (down at the lodge in Clapham, anyone know it?) but only made £60 or so on that because of the really steep payout structure on that tourney.

    I know a guy who won £30,000 on the PKR bad beat jackpot, had 4 8's and losty to 4 Kings - happy days!

    We call that Indian Poker, never known anyone use Chinese Poker. You learn something everyday.
