Motor City Casino

Today I venture to Motor City Casino and try my new acquired hobby of Texas Hold'em. As it turned out it was the start of an expensive lesson in the world of poker. Below is my cumulative results for my first year at poker. I proceed to lose today and my losses continued to over $6K during the next six months, but I slowly been making my way back to even after one year of play.

Soaring Eagle - Where It All Began

It is the end of the Golfing season in Michigan and my friend Frank and I decided to head north for the weekend for a few rounds before the season ends. We were very close to Soaring Eagle Casino. I always wanted to try my luck with Poker, so we went and I had my first experience at the poker table.

I first bought in for $50. I won maybe one hand, then loss it all. I bought in for another $100 and played some more. I didn't really know what I was doing, but was having fun. Then I had AJ and limped in. I loss to the small blind who flopped 2 pair with 93. My poker lesson, if you are gonna play AJ then you better raise it. If you just limp, then be ready to fold it...
