A vast amount of people try to steer well clear away from any type of gambling because they hear bad things about the game, but I do think that it is misinterpretated and gambling can be good.
I actually started playing when I was around 21 years old, I was still quite young and a beginner so lost a bit of money to begin with. But I decided to do something about it so I read books both online and offline, I was getting better and better as weeks went by.
The game I was best at was poker, I was basically the king of the bluff and beat everyone in my local casino, which earned me a bit of extra pocket money. It was not until I got my first internet connection that I got obsessed with something called online poker, but it was a lot different online and a whole new ball game, things were a lot harder because you could not see who you were playing against and the whole purpose of poker is being able to tell when someone is bluffing. I again lost a bit of money to begin with but then I started to master the art.
There was a bigger audience online with meant that payouts were a lot larger, and if you win only a couple of them then you start to make some serious cash. Within a few years I had purchased a luxury home, a small boat and a couple of nice vehicles, I still play online poker twice a week and am raking in a good amount, although I do sometimes have my bad days I would never change my life for a second and for every that moans about gambling, they should first try it to see what an exciting game it can be.
