I've played texas hold-em a couple of times. Normally when drunk though so I cant say I'm a dedicated poker player. It's good fun though as long as I'm betting for small amounts. I'd lose my house if i wasn't :D

Oh I never play online. That would be too dangerous. I seem to be more cautious when i can physically see the chips in front of me.

I have played poker a couple of times but I find the online games too fast. I do enjoy playing with friends but more so with enemies.

In casino's I play blackjack and I was taught by an expert, more often than not I come out on top or break even but it is dead easy to get carried away.

The last time i played poker i was away for a weekend in Anglesea stpping in a pub and started a game with the barman and a couple of locals,

when it got to about 2-30 i said thats it I'm of to bed (I was winning about twenty pounds)
well there was uproar you can't go to bed now taking our money with you so i stayed.

At about five they had to let me go as they had nothing left to play with and when I checked in the morning I was about £250 up, they wouldn't let me play the next night I'm pleased to say as I would have lost it all back to them,

what a great weekend and worth the earache from her indoors cost about £15 to get her back on side so still on a winner, the good old days.

Only ever played poker online and started playing about 4 years ago.

Biggest tourney win was about £500 but that was about £20 buy in but only play smaller stakes now days.

Play daily tourney on poker.com with $3.30 buy in with 2 rebuys available has average of 120 players , played 6 six times last week with 3 final tables including 1st winning $180/£125.

Best poker moment ----> Hitting royal flush in a cash game. :D
Worst poker moment ----> Hitting royal flush in a cash game and winning £1.65 pot :(

I'm a bit of a Poker fanatic, I follow the major tournements, know all the pro's (not personally though I did meet Dave "Devilfish" Ulliot once) funny thing is I don't really play it that much unless it's just a bit of fun with some mates as I really can't afford to go for big stakes.

I play pokeronline for fun and with freinds for coppers nothing serious but I'm pretty good. I dont like playing online though cos you dont have the same game imo no facial expressions , ticks or twitches to pick up on and bluffing is a 50:50 chance as well
