    Texas Hold ‘Em

    Who here is a poker fan?

    We rented Molly’s Game this past weekend and my interest in poker has been brought back to life. I think I’ll be tuning in for this year’s WSOP on ESPN.

    Re: Texas Hold ‘Em

    I love playing Hold 'Em. I just suck at it, that's the problem.

    Re: Texas Hold ‘Em

    Haha, I feel ya, Mike. What’s the hold ‘em tagline?...”it takes a couple minutes to learn, but a lifetime to master”.

    I was into poker big time with my friends during that popularity surge in the early 2000’s but haven’t played much since then.

    Re: Texas Hold ‘Em

    I have a game the 2nd Friday of every month at my house. This has been going on since the early 90s. I had to cancel the game this month as I needed to evaluate my Typhon QR. Priorities.

    Re: Texas Hold ‘Em

    I play occasionally, mostly weekend tournaments. I do alright, but don't really want to spend the time (and money!) needed to get better, and I really don't want to give my money away playing any other game in the casino.

    I find Texas Hold Em to be a made for TV experience. I always preferred 5 card versions of stud or draw to be more fun.
