WBCOOP Blog Entry

By: 777pilo777 @ 12:44 (EST) / 305 / Comment ( 0 )

Hi all!!! I am new at pokerschoolonline and this, as you may noticed, its my first blog....  This post might be very long because it is also my WBCOOP 2013 entry and it has to be something like 500 words. Well poker and especially  No Limit Holdem is my favourite game because I am better there. I think I will never unerstand how to play 7 card stud hi/lo or badugi I understand the rules but they are definitely not for me....  Playing poker had not been in my mind until I was introduced to poker from the wsop main event which I happened to see at the tv 4 years ago at an italian channel.... It was the one that Moneymaker won the title from Sami Farha which left me impressed from the huge amount of money that an poker amatuer won. 10 thousand dollars are enough for me...  To think a person winning close to 3 million dollars was like madness to me and after learning the rules of poker I was hooked. I played a lot with my friends with plastic chips,,, We all were bad but nobody was good to actually notice how bad we were so we thought ourselves professional gamblers lol.  Anyways after waching The Pokerstars Big Game on tv a year ago and seeing an online poker player bluffing really easy Doyle Brunson or Phill Helmuth I decided to create an account on pokerstars. I got also my friends to create an account and we all played play money cash games and loaning each other whenever someone was short or out of chips. Pokerstars reload your chips once you get them to zero but it probably took us 2 weeks to get that.  After a while I got better at it and started playing play money high stakes lol. I felt like I was Daniel Negreanu, he is my favourite poker player by the way. Later I helped my friends questions about strategy and we all started chatting at our own language until we were told that we can only chat in english... Well we at least improved our english. So what is my best moment on Pokerstars? Well It has to definitely be getting a royal flush at the flop on a play money tournament. I had J 10 of hearts and I just raised the minimum I think 3 guys called the bet and the flop was the great K Q A all hearts. At that moment I didn't care much about the chips I could win so I took a time bank until I could find the Print Screen button on the keyboard. Mission was succesfull and I ended up taking a screen shot and making that photo my desktop image.                                                                                                                                                          I guess that was my best moment on pokerstars.... I hope after some years I can play at a big poker tournament like wsop against Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu and get a flush royal, until that moment happens I will just enjoy playing at pokerstars with my friends or with people from all over the world...
