Texas Hold 'em Stress Therapy

Texas Hold 'em Poker is the bomb, really. I love it, and have been playing it for a couple years now. I've started playing tournaments lately, as opposed to just going online and playing random rooms of people, and I have to say, it's become my favorite way to de-stress at the end of the day! Now, you wouldn't think of poker as a stress reliever, because it really can be somewhat of a tense game, depending on who you're playing with. I have sat in rooms with some really aggressive players, barracudas, really, and at those moments when you go ahead and call a really big bet, or even better yet, go all in, your heart races like crazy! At least mine does. I've never broken out in a sweat, but man, my heart rate jumps up more than a few dozen beats when I'm waiting for that last card to turn over!
Poker is definitely for adrenaline junkies! I guess that's why I play it! ;)

I've yet to win a tournament, and that's definitely a goal of mine. I have finished "in the money" a few times, though, and that at least makes it worth all the effort. So, I'm just gonna keep plugging away at it and hopefully one day I'll make "final table". Hah! Whenever that happens, I probably will break a sweat, for sure. But in the meantime, I'll just keep honing my lil' skills....and relaxing as I try to outwit everybody else at the table. Let's just see how that all pans out...

Thanks. Hold 'em is an addiction (which has nothing to do with gambling). I'm sure there's a group out there somewhere that can wean me off it someday.
Got a pretty cool blog yourself! :)
