    How did you learn to play, Poker Stories..

    For me, growing up as a youngster 4-5 I remember by grandfather playing in high stakes cash games,. One christmas, when I was like 7 he gave me a large thick cloth bag full of $30 in nickles,. I had been asking him to teach me the game so he dealt some cards out and said he was going to teach me to play poker(5 card draw back then) after teasing me and letting me win a few hands and think I was good, (my first time playing poker), he somehow talked me into gambling with him. Needless to say a few hands later he had all his nickles back lol.(But ended up giving them to me anyway). Each year after I knew just what to expect, it was the same each year, and he took my nickles each year till I was around 13-14, he had actualy taught me all he knew and I was able to win all his chips.(at least thats what I want to believe . I never got a bag of nickles from him again. RIP

    looking back, he must not have been very good.. bc.. im still

    My ex boyfriend used to always play which I thought was annoying until one day i was beyond bored and he suggested he teach me how to play. When I learned how to play there was no turning back I've been hooked ever since. That was 2 years ago.

    Sophmore year of high school, while traveling to baton rouge for the state tennis championships a friend taught me in the back of a van. Didnt think to much of it then, but when we got back the 2004 main event was on tv and while watching that fat bastard take it down i got hooked. Been 8 years now and i still love it, i believe its been a pretty good "investment" as its made me 15-20k over the years

    I had no clue what poker was but found it online one day probably while looking for inappropriate pictures. Downloaded a site that I've long forgotten entered a freeroll won 4th and all kinds of "cool" clothes and I was hooked
