Playing Poker on Steemit


Well tonight I got my cherry popped by and everyone at @spl. I had a great time taking part in the Today on Lucksacks - Sept 10th - Adsactly 20 SBD and FollowBTCNews 5 SBD Freerolls! contest.

I may not have won, but I did get some good practice in for the next tournament. I came in a whopping 17th place.


I was doing good and had about 6000 chips at one point until I thought @yazp was bluffing on one of his hands when he went all in. I think we both had pairs, but his was higher. After that, it was downhill from there.

It was getting late and dinner was calling and I needed to make sure my chicken wasn't burning, so I went all in on what I think I remember as a pair of aces (I only had like 1000 chips), but I think I was beat out by a three of a kind. Anyways, I had a great time playing with everyone and I am looking forward to doing it again.

I have been a fan of everyone over at @spl,, and @brospn for a while now and I have wanted to give back to their community since the do so much for so many people on Steemit. I have decided to use some of the proceeds from my portion of my team witness @c0ff33a to support their efforts and I am donating 20 Steem a month to help fund the poker tournaments on We need more communities like this on the Steem blockchain where people can come and hang out and have a good time together. This type of community is what keeps the Steem blockchain strong and I am in full support of it.

Thank you everyone that beat me at Texas Hold'em tonight for showing me a good time. I am looking forward to more games with everyone.

I'm terrible at Poker, I think you have to have a certain mind set for it and my slightly befuddled braun doesn't get it.

I think you did well for the first time, and it looks good great fun.
