Today, I'm going to tell you about my beginnings in poker. I always liked card games, but I had never tried poker until one day a friend invited me to his house for a game. He said it would be very quiet, with few people. I thought it would be fun and accepted the invitation, not really knowing what to expect.
Arriving there, I came across a table full of chips, cards and concentrated people. My friend quickly explained the basic rules of poker and gave me some tips on how to play. I confess that I was a little nervous at first, but I soon got used to the pace of the game and started having fun. Really, starting to play is very easy, because the basic rules are very simple. Little did I know that there are so many nuances, so many details, so many strategies... Nowadays, I already know that there is all of this, but I know and dominate only a tiny fraction of this poker universe. lol ...for now, I hope.
I didn't make a lot of money that night, but I did gain a new passion. I was fascinated by poker and wanted to learn more about it. I started researching on the internet about strategies, odds, types of games and everything else that involves this universe. I also started playing online on free sites to practice and improve my skills.
Over time, I got more confident and decided to take my chances playing cash games and real money tournaments – always micro. I didn't have much expectation of winning, but I wanted to test my knowledge and challenge myself.
The Bankrollmob provided me with poker rooms like Titan Poker, Pokermatch, PartyPoker that put lots of free tournaments that helped me to create a small bankroll. Since nowadays I already play cash games daily.
