Poker

I have decided I might like to become a professional poker player. I was recently out of commission due to a back injury and had a chance to watch a lot of poker on TV. I noticed that there is a deffinite skill to the game because the same players are always winning. I decided that if there was any skill at all to this I was going to learn. Since then I have read one book on the subject and I have one three tournaments since then. My gross winnings so far have been $165. I have also one a small tournament at a local bar. The prize for this win was a chance to play for a trip to Vegas. I have been playing Texas Hold em. I reccomend this game for anyone with time on their hands that is looking for a cheap but challenging hobby. It is inexpensive (most of the time free) and fun. I have a couple more books on the way and I hope to further my knowledge of the game. Maybe one day you will see me on TV.

That's awesome! I'd like to come down some weekend and get in a tournament with you at the boat. I'm impressed you got so good so fast. Never quit playing craps though.

i am impressed as well, but less impressed with your use of "one" instead of the more mainstream "won". That is just careless, you now what i am saying?
