Finding Time For Poker

We hear lots of stories about poker and gambling addiction, but in this fast-paced society, what we hear much less of is the epidemic that we might call “no time for a poker moment” – you know exactly what I’m talking about!

Those of us who are full time professionals, with the responsibilities of home and family, can often find ourselves going weeks or months without a moment of carefree fun with our buddies. I catch myself in this situation several times a year, and I then it occurs to me to ask “am i living to work or working to live?”

Here’s some advice. If you’re wrapped up in the rat race like so many of us are, schedule in a game of poker with the guys at least once a month. It’ll do you some good.

Forget about gambling addiction…our society has unhealthy marriage to the never-stop Protestant work ethic. Let’s fight back. Poker at my house on the 3rd Wednesday of each month;-)

  1. Hey Cowboy
    I think that’s a great idea. My problem is finding a decent game. I’d be interested to hear your ideas (or Suber’s) on how to find or build a good, regular card game. My problem is that every game I’ve been to in someone’s basement ends up being more about beer and cigars than cards.

  2. Raise the stakes and the attitudes will follow. Also, make sure you host the games. You will see why after you read the interview with Marc Salem.
