    Anyone been playing this alot lately? Maybe Omaha is more popular in Europe?

    I grew up playing poker regularly, then altogether quit playing cards when I discovered the ponies. Now that hold'em is so popular in the states, I've picked up cards again and it has been quite lucrative for me. I only play at the local Caesar's casino, weekly cash games, and tournaments (haven't played on-line yet :gimp: ), but I'm up nearly $1000 over the last three months!!! Seems a simple game if you read up and do the math. It's important to realize that you can't win every time, but if you put yourself in good positions over and over, :thumbsup:

    As P.T. Barnum said:

    "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."

    Thoughts?

    Definately a game id like to play/learn more of!

    Ive taught myself the various hands a few times, but having the memory of a small potato I find I can never remember them!!!

    Also I dunno how many people I know who actually play either, or where Id play it!!!

    Might well d/l some guides off the net and get reading up, might be quite a good cure for boredom when Im stuck with the family over xmas!!!

    hell yeah bro, Hold Em' is the shit. I play it all the time with my bluhds. Very very popular here in the states. They always got those World Series of Poker Tourney's airin' on the tube. The game is very fun and addicting. :i_love_co

    check out www.partypoker.com
    you can either play for real money or fake money.
    fake money is still fun though, good practice if you play seriously. (y)
