I play a nice $10 tournament of Texas Hold'em every couple of months or so between buddies. I see the fixed amount of money as an inexpensive evening of entertainment with a chance to take in a kitty of $70-80 ... and cheaper than a DSO ticket!

Ever play a game called, "Oh Hell"?

Very fun and you can play with an odd number of people.

Yup. That was the abreviated list of card games myself, wife, sister and brother inlaw (sometimes another couple when we go 6 handed and things really get exciting :-) ) play.

Oh hell is absolutely maddening but fun. We'll play that, cribbage, casino and golf as well.

Talk about a cheap night out. Life in the fast lane is a challenge, but someones gotta do it.

And tiger I suppose I exaggerated somewhat as once in a while I'll indulge with small stakes poker as you do, I just never seem to win!
