Hi All Laughing


Apologies for the delay in prize payments and this months subject. Sean has been away and I have been unwell. Normal service is now resumed.


Due to the late announcement of the October subject we thought we would make it an easy one for you. So to put it in a nutshell……Hole Cards/Starting Hands.


We all wait for the next deal with eager anticipation, hoping to see the great beginnings of a winning hand, our hole cards. AA will bring a glint to any eye. as do other high ranking cards which have the potential of being the boss. These are cards any poker player is eager to play, all be it not as often as we would like. But there are other hole cards that we are always personally pleased to see…..our favourite.


One thing I have learnt when chatting to poker players over many years, is that everyone has a favourite starting hand and most with a story behind them. The hole cards they can’t resist taking a punt on, the cards that other players would bin without a second thought, but for reasons of your own you just have to play. Why?


Tell us about YOUR favourite starting hand.


We want to know what memories it evokes when you see it appear before you? Are they personal or poker in origin? Do they remind you of a time and place or person? Did you own a massive pot with it? Was it the final hand you took down a tournament with? Is it lucky for you? On average do you lose or win with it? What makes your favourite hand irresistible to play?

Chip Lacy saying hello!

Had capped internet speeds (Australians will know the feels - another 'perk' to being an Aussie internet player :P ) at the end of last month when I was trying to upload my blog then - so have been itching to get back involved since! So happy this is finally up!
