Texas Hold ‘em

Wooohooo! I love poker. To unwind once a week the team and I will get together with some other folks and play Texas Hold ‘em. We’ve only actually had time to play twice since we’ve been here in Afghanistan.

Its a $20 buy in, 5 players. Last week I came in second and walked away with $30. Today I came in 1st and walked away with $80! I know its not much but, I ain’t going to lie, it sure felt great to win!

I have some friends that play for thousands of dollars…not me! I’d rather gamble with the stock market any day – even with all its instability of late.

Mostly I think we all enjoy playing so much because it reminds us of home. We buy near beers, chips, pizza and play with realish poker chips.
