Moving up in rank slowly playing a game I love.


skill or luck?

Not sure if I am playing with more skill then luck, but I have moved up to 1095 as of today's rankings. Either way it feels good to see my name almost in the top 1000. It may not be the best rank, but for me it is an improvement from my earlier days. Been playing Texas-Holdem for two years now. Two long years of ups and downs. Now it seems that I go up more then down. Some days are better then others. I guess it all depends on your oppenent and the fall of the cards when you believe your hand is best. One thing I love about this game is that you never know if you have won until all cards have been shown. A rush and sometimes a dissapointment. Can't win them all though. The lessons have helped me greatly to understand this game. Don't know it all, but I play my best when I play.
