So I've discovered the joys of online poker. There is more to the game than just sheer luck, and I'm really enjoying reading all the strats, probabilities, bluff strategies, and various secrets associated with the game. Especially fun is the poker slang that seems to have infiltrated the English language and I didn't even notice.

I play on pokerstars and Pokerstars is where all the pros play and it has about 10000 people on at any given time. But I don't like the interface, it's a bit clunky and somewhat old school. Poker one is much prettier and it has freerolls every three hours (you pay nothing, but if you place or win, you get real cash prizes), so yeah I've pretty much been playing poker non stop for the last three days or so. I came 6th in one of the freerolls, and so I now even have $2.50 in my account. I'm still to scared to play with real money, so just keep plucking away at the fake money they give you to try in "play money" games. And, well, freerolls cost nothing.

So yeah, give me a holla sometime if you also think the game is fun and if you might want to play, there is a link on the left there for the download.

In other news, Wii is awesome!

Haha, I knew I'd do that. I completly forgot about the NZ Hold 'em game this week and went to a LAN instead. Bugger XD
