    Hi all,

    Thought i'd tell you about a nice evening of poker I had a fortnight ago..

    I've been playing at a new venue that opened up earlier this year, it caters for snooker/pool/darts and they have 5 poker nights a week.

    I only play on the Saturday night as only night I can really go over. The tournament starts at 8 with an hour of late reg, but if you reg before 8 you get 10k starting stack compared to 8k for late reg, so I normally arrive early.

    Well a fortnight ago i'd had a really busy day, late dinner, so didn't arrive till 8:30, so decided to wait...

    Hi all,

    My first attempt at a blog, so all feedback appreciated, even if it's negative :-)..

    It was about 3 years ago, i noticed that a local snooker hall also had a poker room, enquired about it and found you had to be a member, joined up and that weekend i decided that i would play the saturday night tournament, it was a £50 freezeout with a optional £5 bounty. At the time i had just had a nice little win on stars so paying £50 for the entry didn't seem to bad. There was 98 runners in the tournament time it started. If i remember rightly, blinds started at 50/100 and the...

    ok this is my 1st effort of a blog ( not even sure what a blog is )

    Got to the final break of day one and i was down to around nine big blinds ,i had texted my friends and family telling them that i would probably be coming home on the first train in the morning as i was currently in 36 th place out of the 36 people remaining !! I was supposed to be attending a christening on the sunday anyway so it would save me some grief off the parents by attending that .
    I decided that i would have to take a few big gambles to either give me a workable stack or go home .... so three hands into...

    How and Why I became a Card Sharp
    After so many requests from my fans for a continuation of (how I got my poker name) I hope you will enjoy this one too. I have to go back before my Croupier days however.

    I mentioned in my last story that I could handle a pack of cards and I also mentioned that I played three card brag whenever a game was available. Most of my early experience playing cards was sitting on the grass outside in the open air when a gang of us would meet. That is and how I learnt the game. At that time I would be about twelve or thirteen years of age. When I was fourteen...

    As you probably already know I go a long way back. Born during the 2nd world war when we were still getting bombed by Germany. I was about 3 years old when the first and second atomic bombs were dropped on Japan. was six years old when the four minute mile was broken. I watched the moon landing and could go on and on but it has nothing to do with how I got the name three so here we go.

    In the late 1960s every little town had a Night Club and every Night Club had a casino.

    I for as long as I can rember played cards games of one sort or annother but the only game in town was...
