Here is an exemple of what all of us, poker passionates, would like to have had: a childhood filled with poker games all the time. This guy could only be from the north! If he was from Portugal, perhaps now he would be playing football with Ronaldo. Smile Why didn't my parents teached me poker lessons when i was young? Smile

Oh sorry, forgot to say, good luck kid!
