    Why Poker? What caused you to gravitate towards the flop?

    I would like to know when in your life Poker became something you liked,hated or just in general gravitated towards vs other forms of sports or gambling. Tell me why?

    I've played poker since I was 11, really sucked until about 6 or 7 years ago (I'm now 67).

    After getting too far over the hill to continue drag racing, I started applying myself to get better at poker. I now get the need for competition at a laptop instead of at the race track. Not to mention make a little extra cash.

    I still go to races to watch the rest of my family race. There has been four generations of my family that have and continue to race. Later Y'all

    My dad taught me when I was 5 years old. Only 24 and have been playing Holdem since I was 12. Thanks to my dad I started out playing a $120 buy in once a week at the age of 13 and have had the poker bug ever since.

    I've played since I was in graduate school in small live games - I like the thrill of hitting a big pot, but even more than that is the great feeling you get when you've played a hand just right and it pays off for you
    I'm not slurring my words. I'm talking in cursive. I believe the ladies find it to be quite elegant.
