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! ;)
