My Intro To Poker

June 28, 2011

I was first introduced to poker when I was about 8, on holiday with my family, we were playing cards and my dad was asked me if I wanted to learn how to play poker. He taught me 5 card draw and I still remember making a fullhouse in my first few hands and getting beat by quad queens.

We manage to get 5 of us together and played a ...

April Swings
