    Two Year Poker Lesson

    Back in 1983 and living in San Diego, CA. I was leasing a taxi cab 24 hours, four days a week and and making good money and had a lot of free time to do what ever I wanted.

    I started playing poker, 5 card draw in a downtown card room where the tables had mostly old men playing at them. I thought I was a really good player having won most of the home games I had played over the years, This was going to be easy I had thought.

    I walked out every day a loser and scratching my head in wonder as to why I couldn't win. I couldn't even get a play when I got dealt a royal flush, everyone folded. It became a challenge to me to walk away a winner against all those old men over a period of two years. Then one day all pissed off and having throwing my card down hard and across the table, Old man Jim I called him said to me "John take a break and let me buy you lunch, I've something to tell you."

    Sitting in MacDonalds Jim says he felt sorry for me (which I did not need to here)and said he had a secret to share with me. He said that the reason I couldn't win was that all those old men had nothing better to do then to sit there and play poker all day long and having all day long to play they could wait and play the best hands.
    So remember this that if you play only ACES-STRAIGHTS and FLUSHES like those old men, and have the patients to wait for those kind of draws you can win to.

    I got up and thanked him feeling like a real fool. Just before I went out the door he called out "REMEMBER, ACES-STRAIGHTS-FLUSHES." I never went back to hat card room and stopped playing poker that is in till about 7 years later in Las Vegas I stepped into the Vegas Club, down town on fremomt st. Remembering what old man Jim said to me. Well to make a long story short I played seven card stud for about 5 hours playing nothing but Aces Straights and Flush draws and had to leave the table and cash out because not only did I win a lot of money, I had made the 3 players for the house(the casino) leave the table broke. It was really great to see the last house man get up and throw his cards at me all mad like I had done in San Diego, It made me smile all day long. Oh ya I had won enough money to make up my losses over the early years I played cards in San Diego and to live on for the next 8 months.

    All I really want to say is REMEMBER ACES STRAIGHTS and FLUSHES

    Playing nit poker isn't as fun, but it can be profitable.

    I can tell you something about more tables to play on! a few years ago playing at ABSOLUTE Poker I would change to a new room playing the 3/6 tables, there was about 8 rooms to pick from and I noticed I guess realized that after playing in every 3/6 room 1 at a time, there was 2 some times 3 player with the same names in each room playing.
    It is hard enough to keep up playing in 3 rooms yet alone 8 you would think, yet those players where and I just couldn't see it would be possible.

    ABSOLUTE POKER had about 30 or more rooms opened some for $100.00 dollar games - 50, 20, 10, 5, on down to 1 penny. I visited with my paper pad and pen in hand every one writing each players name down to find out just how many rooms they played in.

    I found one of the names to be playing in 18 of the real money games and another four players, All with there names being in different rooms 12-17 times and playing. if you find you can do it yourself then your not human. I think there was ABSOLUTE cheating going on so help me GOD!

    I agree that nit poker is very boring but can be very profitable.
