This Poker thing is both addictive and a hell of a lot harder than it started out to be. Some days are better than others that’s for sure.

We now have a family of online poker junkies. It’s good practice I think, but I’m not sure. There are times I think it is, and times when it just doesn’t seem to matter. Claudine is the only one who’s been brave enough to gamble with cash. The way folks play with cash is certainly different than they way they bet and play with the “play money” according to her.

We now have a little wager to see who can ge to 100,000 play chips the fastest.


That’s going to be a challange. There are nights when I do very well, but I havn’t figured out when to walk away from the table. Claudine is much better at that than I am.

But we’ll see, it’s game on now.

It was a good morning at Doyle’s Place

The day started off kind of low-key. With all the rain last night I wasn’t sure how the day would go. I had to meet with the electricians, and it didn’t look like much work would get done on the barn today. I didn’t have the BobCat scheduled, though I should get to use it this afternoon.

The weather turned out nice, but I’m riding tomorrow to Molly’s meet. So I decided to play a little poker over at Doyles Place


Things went pretty well.

I played some 3-6 No Limit Texas Holem. Started out with $500 and parleyed that into a total of $8900 in the end. If only it were real money. 🙂 Of course getting 4 of a kind twice in a matter of two hours didn’t hurt much neither.

It was a lot of fun, and it sure is adictive.

Online Poker:Doyles Place

Since I don’t get out to play poker with the guys as much as I’d like I’ve started playing a little poker online.

I’ve been playing at Doyles Room

The client isn’t too bad, the game play is fast enough and all and all it’s pretty decent.

I haven’t ventured into any “Real Money” games yet. But so far am doing well with the FREE play money.

Yes you can play here forever for FREE, and free is a good thing.
