     So yesterday, or i guess early this morning.... i played 2-7 single draw Poker and 7 card stud for the fist time online, and ever for that matterr...  At first I was excited because i remember the 'olden days' growing up i would sit in on penny poker with friends ... 5 card draw...and clincking of ACTUALL pennies dropping into the pot.... [Ahhh.. the Nostalgia............]  So ANYWAYS>>>..  the first hand.. i get all excited because i end up with high two pair.. AAQQ8 ... in 2-7... i am thinking okay... i will pre-raise... continue raising.. continue calling and come to find out at showdown that my 'Rockets and Ladies' have been shattered by 7,6,5,3,2, off suit !!!!!!  WTF! ! ? ? ? 
     OKAY!! so obviosly i wasn't playing the same game as everyone else...  where now the lowest possible hand wins.. EG .. 7,5,4,3,2  off suited of course...
     Continuing,, (except now this post is seeming rather dry and drawn out... blah...()   ANYWHO... WHY AM I A HYPOCRITE!!!!???  .. because i played everyhand, raised and re-raised non stop,, and actually won the next 5 hands, some of which were all in...(on my part)  and won, and won and so forth.. and became the tall stack bullie....)...  and i said to them, innocently....  "Ya that first hand... i guess i diddn't realize this wasn't 5 card draw... my first time playing BTW>>> " 
     Okay, enough of that...  i actually continued and finished in the top 10% of the tournament of like 5000... pretty sweet!!  -  So, i had mentioned before in my last post how frustrating it is for me to figure out how and when to start playing poker in the PSO hold'em tourneys... because many handfulls of us can tend to be quite loose and frolic with thier Jacks and Sevens...  etc... -- I pretty much did the same thing here,< but upside down of course >....  and still won...  OOpps!!    :wink:    LOL !!
    PS...  if you havent tried playing 2-7 single or multi-draw or however you say it...  it is actually pretty fun because all of the sudden..  your horrible hands turn into potentially great hands if you play them right,,  PLUS>>>  when you are having a down streak... EG.. getting AA, QQ  TJQKA  or flushes right off the bat...  it kanda still makes ya feel warm and fuzzy inside even though at that point your hand actually is a bunch of rags... !!!    HA...........   blahh.....  blahh......  blahh-biddy blahhhhhh.......    OK   DONE..   </BODY> </HTML>
