    Oh my god!!!!

    I was at the men poker game a couple of weeks ago, and then went to my \\\”lady\\\” Triopley game.

    They brought up an interesting issue about their friends\\\’ husbands\\\’ addiction spending their fortune.

    I was going to do a vlog on So. Cal Poker Club, too. But I did not get to it sooner.

    It is a serious issue here especially among the wives!

    Ch Jesus rist! You and I think alike and adifferenct! LOL!

    Shucks! Another \\\”opposed\\\” thinking! ( no way is it antagonistic ) Wink! But shall I speak the truth!

    Interesting vlog, though!

    sigh-its a ‘HOT” sport everywhere else. my heart goes to these wives who long to be with their husbands, but they choose to play poker. if the wife is very supportive, its a relief, i suppose. i can see that playing poker helps strengthen in many ways (develop rapport with other players, social time, thinking tanks, better strategies, and many more.) im curious to why all of a sudden it has become a hot sport within two years, eh?

    Poker is the “HOT” thing going on now. It can be fun to play, but for some it’s addicting. Some people have good will power to limit their spending while others don’t.

    I’m curious what Teri has to say in her future blog. It is an issue, no doubt.

    Usually I play online for free..that way I don’t lose any real money! But, I imagine it’s not the same as playing for real.

    I know some want to play for fun with money so they limit the amount each puts in..five bucks each player (Texas hold’em). That way they don’t lose a fortune!

    Poker is also popular in New York!! Just played last night as there were 14 of us (4 women and 10 men) and guess who ended up the top three? All women (I ended up 2nd place)!! Same thiing happened a few weeks ago when playing at a deaf club with 20 players (16 men and 4 women) and the top 3 were women (I ended up 3rd). Hmm, it can’t be a coincidence, haha!

    Sounds fun. Just keep in mind, playing pokers are as dangerous as drinking problems. Basically everywhere in Reno, Nevada, I’ve seen people lost their homes, cars, and their lives to the ravish of gambling. I see these issues as gambling disorders at daily basis. Maybe pokers are the great tool for promoting the social skills, but just make sure our Deaf community manage stay healthy and strong. Perhaps one may consider in setting up an organization for the deaf on the issues about the addictions in gambling. An organization for this disorder is a must if the poker becomes a major hit among the Deaf community! To Be Prepared is vital especially its happening in our community.

    H’m. So this is basically an ad for deaf poker? I hope this is not the direction your blog takes. Regardless, it was really cool to see an actual poker gathering in action and to see something different on your blog. Thanks! 🙂
