Anybody play Texas Hold'em?

I'm presently turning my former dungeon into a card playing room with wet bar. I'm off to get plumbing supplies, now, so I'll be sure to post some pics of my progress. I've managed to stop the leaking in my basement by redirecting water away from the foundation.

As for cards, I can't play worth a shit. I get ass raped nearly every game. I actually was in the final 2 three weeks ago. The highlight of the game last Friday was when my smart ass brother-in-law got bluffed out of a 3 of a kind tens with pocket threes. Beautiful! The pot had over $1,000 worth of chips in it. Fucker deserved it.

That's the game of choice for our poker nights. There's even some good free software to manage chip distribution based on buy-in amounts, blind raises based on time intervals of your choice, etc. That's real poker - far more about skill than about cards.

Love playing holdem, Was in a home game 2 weeks ago small stakes $45 buyin with 38 players, played the short stack the entire night won just enough to keep me in, once we were down to final four just started putting on the presure. Ended up taking first after a chop between the final 2 of us he took 2nd for $500 and I took first at $650 ( it was already 3:15 and i had to take to other guys home) Do you play online? really don't like it myself but if there is no other game its a suitable alternative.
