"Hi! My name is Ken and I am a poker addict"
"Hi Ken, welcome to Poker's Anonymous" would be the chorus of voices I hear in reply...
Ok... that would be the case IF there was a Poker's Anonymous AND IF I was really a poker addict (Still in denial!!).
By Poker here I mean the most popular game in recent times - Texas Hold-Em Poker. Its like the most exciting game out there rite now. Made popular of course in movies like "Rounders" and more recently in James Bond and the new series "Tilt".
Best starting hand in Texas Hold Em poker game
It has to be immensely popular if there is a world Series of Poker. Now on a side note, when you hear the words "world series" you would know for a fact that its an american thing and most likely 90% of the players would be Americans and no one else in the world is so excited about it nor do they play it. E.g. World Series Baseball, World Series Football (American Football and not the beautiful game of "soccer" - p.s. When u use your hands to throw a ball it CANNOT be called FOOTball!!!)
However, when it comes to Texas Hold Em poker... it is the exception rather than the general rule. Everyone plays it now or at elast knows how to do so. :) and fortunately or unfortunately I know how to play and I enjoy it too! (Damn! The chinaman gambler in me comes to fore!!)
The purpose of this post? Nothing much except to issue a warning to my fellow poker players (who recently took my money!) I'll be back to get my money... just you wait!! hahahhaa... now you've heard it here first! Gambler Ken is gunning for you.
Maybe I should change the blog's name to Gambler Ken Lai instead of Dragon... hmmm... food for thought!? :P
Probably it should have been,
"Hi, My name is Ken and I am a gambling addict!"...
sigh... what can I do? Its in my blood... I'm chinese... We LOVE gambling! rite? :P
