When I learned to play poker, the terminology was different, it was poker at the neighbour's place every weekend. I grew up playing kids games, rummoli chase the ace etc in the living room, the dining room was where the ADULTS played real poker. I was forever hanging around the archway watching, if it was off limits I WANTED to be there, rebel from the get go LOL.

I watched till I was old enough to play with the adults(when I started earning babysitting money). I was told that it was serious  play, if you lost don't cry and expect your money back and if you won it was yours!

Because we were such a community oriented people then , it was almost always the same 8-10 people every weekend,it was perfect for me because I was an organized methodical girl and I watched and watched and saw all the signs (tells they say now) and by the time I joined the table as a real player, I had learned a LOT about the game and always managed to add to my "babysitting " money and some times quite a bit. To a 14 year old girl in !967 winning $48 in an afternoon playing nickle and dime poker.... that was HUGE!!

Now that I have time to dedicate to the game again I want to learn the new strategies and strategies for games and styles that I never knew existed. I WANT to ADD to my BABYSITTING money once again LOL and do it right between my POKER HEROES.......Texas Dolly Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu,Phil Helmuth and Vanessa Selbst !!!! That would be a dream of a lifetime that it took a lifetime to achieve.

Thanks Poker Stars for the opportunity )!!!
