Hello Happy Poker World!

If I said that poker is my life, I would be lying. But if I said I did not care about poker I would be an even bigger liar.

I don’t want to lie to you, random stranger, so I’m laying my cards straight on the table: This Website is about poker because I want to write about poker!

But sometimes I think about other stuff than just poker so being the number 1 poker site is not really my goal but if you make me your number 1 sort-of-about-poker-site then I’ll be happy with just that.

I was a kid the first time I played poker. Had no idea of what I was doing but my friends and I had fun. We got into my grandfather’s poker chips and had chips everywhere in the room. We thought we were so cool but we had no idea what the colors were supposed to mean.

I probably lost $20,000 on my first poker bet but I didn’t even know it.

And when my friends and I got tired of playing poker we invented whole new games. Maybe if I could remember what they were now I could package them up and sell them, to children if not to adults. Sadly I have forgotten all the crazy rules we made up.

But I have never forgotten the memories I made that summer. My best buds Zack, Dan, Charlie and I had a blast and we spent many an afternoon watching western movies and trying to play poker.

Now that I’m all grown up, I guess I can still have fun playing poker. I don’t get to lay the cards down as often as I used to. I have a new set of friends. But I still have a lot of happy memories about this game.
