Thank you Aqua for inspiring a wonderful thread like this.
I, as you all know, play poker a lot... it's how I make my money.

This thread is about anything poker related (Cash games, tournaments, hold'em, other games, etc.)

Other forms of gambling may be discussed in here as well.

    Those are pretty much the best ones IMO.
    I bought ones for strictly cash games though, I don't think I'm as skilled in tournaments.
    I hear you. I dabble in both. I may play in one to two cash games a week. I play in about 4 or more tournaments a month :tu I live in Cali and I travel all over playing in tournaments in different casinos.

    Yes they did. Smh @ my favorite site being hemmed up :td 🤬 online though, you can practice at the casinos. They have tourneys with small buy-ins. Go to the website of the casino you frequent and look it up or call and find out or just go and find out lol In LA they have nothing but card casinos so the 🤬 is heaven lol

    Mods should make this the Official Poker Thread and delete every single post that has nothing to do with poker talk/strategy.
