      Hey, just joined... wanted to say, 'How-dy'.

      From Texas, played one form of poker or another, off and on, for the past 30 years or so. Got bored with my other forums and dropped off the radar and when I got to feeling like posting again most of those forums seemed to be dead or dying or nothing like I remember with all new people. So, I decided to look around and here I am.

      Looks like your place has promise. I can be a regular poster, but I do have a lot of irons in the fire right now. Either way, I'll definately be around for a couple of weeks. If I'm getting that good vibe I'm looking for, that'll be months or longer. In any event, good to be here.

      Nu

      Seeing you being from Texas and playing poker for over 30 years, I just cannot resist myself: Your favourite hand must be T2o, isn't it? :f_cool:

      But seriously, welcome to the community, mate. Tells us more about your poker live. What is your greatest achievement so far and what are you aiming at in the future? What do you play (live-internet; cash-tournaments)?

      I love Texas Dolly, but I'm not partial to T2 suited or not. In fact I'm not really partial to any particular hand. I've liked JT, Pocket 9's-6's, was a fan of Ducks for awhile and more recently I'm more likely to play T8 because its a close friends fav hand but honestly, its been my experience that fav hands don't hold up over the long play.

      As for my live play right now, I've been reduced to a few local home games in and around San Antonio (where I live) but even those have been a bit rare over the last year or so. I found those games by going to a local freeroll outside of San Antonio, down around China Grove. I've kept going to the freeroll because I like the people and its a decent place to make connections for other games.

      I've hosted several games in the past. Most times I'd bring my table(s) over to a friends house and we'd co-host. However, lately my friend and I had a parting of the ways so I'm looking forward to hosting some of my own again in the near future.

      Past that, I'm going to make my first trip in about 3-4 years to finally play at a casino again at the end of this month. Taking a vacation to Florida and I'll be stopping off at L'auberge in Lake Charles, Louisiana for about 3 days before going to see some friends in Florida. Then on the way back I'll hit L'auberge again for another run at the tables. Last time I was there, I didn't have a good run but I had fun and that helped make up some of the difference....

      not enough though. <plots his revenge while wringing his hand and laughing maniacally - muahahaha>

      Hi there Nu and welcome to you!

      I'd have to say my fav hand is and most likely always will be the obvious one preflop, but generally I like the best one at showdown, that always sits well with me!

      I like the idea of revenge on the casino though, that would be fun if I could ever do it. Sigh...

      Anyway, welcome again and I hope you have fun and get those good vibes going ( no I won't post a YouTube vid of 'Good Vibrations' that would be too easy!

      You take care on your travels, oh and what about starting a blog to show us all these really nice places for us Brits to get so jealous of?!

      Very best regards for now,

      Mal.
