My Blog is Being Neglected Due to My Texas Holdem Habit

7 Jul

I am becoming addicted to playing Texas Holdem.  Only now have I realized how lame that really is after typing it out.  A few months ago a friend invited me to play poker at our favorite neighborhood bar. I won the entire game that night.  Something within me stirred and my new life goal is to be the female version of Antonio Esfandiari.

I never anticipated that I would be playing games four nights a week at local bars, honing my reading skills and learning when it is best to check, bet, or fold.  Texas Holdem may be one of the most complicated games to ever exist, and I strongly believe that the game “takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master”.

In any case, my new life goal is to try to play poker in enough cash tournaments a month to simply pay my bills and coast along while pursuing writing on the side.

In the meantime, learning when it actually is a good time to play Queen Duey off-suit is pretty important to me.

This announcement will mark my re-commitment to my blog.  It is my goal to complete one post per week, likely on the weekend.  Next month I am moving to Los Angeles and this will be my new goal – to place my writing at the forefront of my life and career.

    It really is a fun game. I’ve enjoyed success in the home game and online. Now I see a local tavern has poker night and I’ve been thinking about measuring my skills against real opponents. Maybe I’ll give it a try.
