Right, so tonight is poker night!

I have been invited over to my friend Gareth’s for dinner and poker tonight. Brendan will be joining us too. Gareth and Brendan are two of my best friends,  and having known them both just about a year each they are also both two very new friends who I have had a year of fun and laughs with, and hopefully many more to come :)

I have a little confession to make, I have no idea how to play poker – at all! So ever since Gareth “whatsapped” me on Tuesday, inviting me over, I have been revising online on various websites.

I seem to have mastered hand rankings, but I am confused as to what the difference is between “best hand” and “the nuts”. They both seem to mean “the best hand”. Well I’m sure it will all become clear tonight! I am also quite up to speed on “the deal” including the flop, turn and river cards and what happens with betting, checking, calling and folding etc.

I have to say I am very excited about tonight’s poker game. I’ll be playing with some great people and I’m sure there will be great drink flowing heading for a great hangover tomorrow morning. However, there will be some great memories created and to be remembered from this.

Wish me luck! let’s hope I come out from this a rich man! ;)
