I’ve long longed for a hobby outside of the internet and since the firewall using conference supremo Phil Sim got me across to one of his conferences last year I’ve found myself playing poker more and more online.
I’ve had the opportunity to play in a casino a couple of times, more recently in Perth + Brisbane, but I’ve always been a little bit shy: the $100 min stake doesn’t help + the game in person is a little different to online.
I’ve been looking at joining the Crown Poker Club when I move to Melbourne (link). Free to join and you get an invite to a freeroll beginners competition which comes with prize money. I’m not sure how she who must be obeyed will take me heading off to Crown for 6pm on a Friday but I’m looking forward to at least trying.
Anyone else a member or plays poker not online with any advice? Don’t think I’ll qualify for the Aussie Millions but it’s a nice dream, as long as I don’t go poor trying 🙂
