Play Money 2

I enjoy playing poker, especially Texas Hold 'em. I like the balance between luck (the cards) and strategy (the chips). You can lose with good cards, and win with bad ones, if you bet them right.

I have been wasting some time lately on the Bodog play money tables. They start you off with $400 and you go from there - unfortunately, as soon as you lose your money, they give you another $400. When you are at a 'table' with others who want to play the game it is fine.

But eventually, even at a good table, a couple of yahoos show up who go All In on every hand...then just replenish their funds if they lose. That takes all of the strategy, and thus all of the fun, out of it. It makes me wonder why they are there at all. They could just as easily sit at home and deal out a few hands just to see which seat gets the best ones.

I've never tried to play Texas Hold'em though it seems to be all the rage these days. I may have to give it a try...
