The hardest question for me to answer in this world is always the "Tell us all about you" question. The best way for me to answer is that "I am composed of contradictions and subject to change without notice."

Poker Cheats

I have been watching the poker tournaments for some time now. When the players get to the final table (or close to it) the commentators start bringing up whatever bio information they have on the finalists. Generally, the comments are pretty lame, but once in awhile the comments will just leave you rolling on the floor.This pickle grower from Kentucky started playing poker when he was just 7 years old. He first learned while watching those pickles grow out in the field. His great-great great-grandfather gave him his first set of chips. It is primarily for this reason that I watch the poker tournaments in the first place. In general, I prefer to play poker with friends or family for candy (or whatever). We don't play for money because we are just playing the game to pass the time. If we wanted to play for money, we would go to the local Indian Casino. However, I found a great book that makes me think I might want to start playing poker for money with my friends and/or family. The book: HOW TO CHEAT YOUR FRIENDS AT POKER: The Wisdom of Dickie Richard by Penn Jillette. From the Penn & Teller website:
"“To get money cheating in Vegas takes a lot of work,"” Penn explains. "“To make money cheating at home games is much easier… All that makes it hard are the morals and, unfortunately, there are ways to get over that problem. Sadly, this book will help."
While I know that cheating your friends at poker is morally reprehensible, I also know that it could be loads of fun :-)
