A Social Animal

After many years of chastising the social networking websites’ users over any possible positive use of facebook, orkut et al – having deleted his own account years ago because of the simple reason: he hated socializing – he finally found a positive use, though slightly debatable, and promptly opened his facebook account.

Texas Hold’em Poker awaited him.

A tiny amount of persuasion from @vidit & @_skp was all it took for me to rejoin a social network for the sole reason of playing poker with friends. Played Poker as soon as I joined, but unluckily the beginner’s luck was missing. Maybe, next time lady luck will ride with me 🙂

    There are poker clubs at all metro cities in India ..I can give you details 🙂

    One problem might be the ease at which facebook poker is available to you whereas you have to actually drag yourself to the clubs to play poker 😐 (not to mention the money loss )

    Ghost Runner, nah dude. I am happier playing poker from the comforts of my home and especially with fake money. I don’t want to waste my money on just a game 🙂

    Arun, that was a very nice read.. thanks!
