How I decided to become poker player :)

Hello guys!

Ok, do not laugh at me now, at least not much but about 10-11 months ago I used to play computer games as 'Sims 3' and 'Farm Frenzy'.

For these of you that never heard about these games, 'Sims 3' for example is a game where you can create so called Sims (just human beings) and customize their appearance, personality and home. Then you can send your Sims out to explore new locations around given town and to meet other Sims in the neighborhood...In other words, you run something as artificial intellect into this game. You get the picture

Of course, all friends of mine used to play (and they continue to play) games as StarCraft, Stalker series, Crysis and PokerStars. They often made jokes about me -  Tina, you only can play these ridiculous games and look after chickens, cows and sheeps, producing cakes, wool, and butter in 'Farm Frenzy'.

Ok, and what kind of game is poker, i said. Because I played 'Stalker' series too and that's
also one of my favourite games, but I've never played poker, neither i've been watched it. I only knew that cards are involved there.

You have to own a lot of coolness to play it, one of my friends said. And there are no cows and sheeps here, but many fishes.

Fishes? Hehe
To my great surprise, this was (is) the way to be called all players who do not know how to play poker well. I didn't want to see these fishes as much as i wanted to see this coolness I should play a game of cards with. And started to play the game in september/2011, convinced that it will be an easy to play game.

First few months, I didn't like the game. Many players outplayed me and I was probably one of biggest fishes in the PokerStars community. I stopped playing poker for about a month but then i realized that i actually like the game. And that was the first game I abandon, only because I cannot play it right. This just wasn't me at all.

I started to play poker again and now I play highest stakes Sit&Gos and won almost 18M chips. Yes, I still play 'play money' but I'm starting to understand that the poker is a game about 'the story you tell to the other players', it is not exactly about your hole cards.

best regards all,
