Carol , I want to tell the folks back home all about our trip to London , Paris, and all the other poker rooms on the continent in Europe, But that will have to wait for a future column when we get back to Las Vegas in a couple of weeks.
The Inaugural of the European Seniors at the Aviation Club in Paris, was a great success.
Carol, they have already invited us to return next year to host "The Seniors" in Europe.
How are you going to keep me down on the farm after I have seen Paree?
I will tell the folks all about the event as soon as I get all the pictures and information together.
The poker at the old Vic in London town was a little different than it is in Las Vegas and for that matter different than any other poker room that I have every played in my lifetime.
First of all, I want to tell the folks that you cannot talk while you are playing a poker hand in London.
Most all of you know that when I play poker that I like to say a few words, but in London that is prohibited.
I will have to admit that not talking when I am playing poker is a lot like eating without a fork.
All of the poker games in London and Europe are pot limit games. It does not matter what type of poker that you choose to play; they are all played pot limit.
Most of the folks in the States play limit poker or in the tournaments it is sometimes no-limit in the big games on TV. But here in Europe all the games are pot limit.
I loved it because I sometimes like to bet a little more than the limit, so it has been possible for me to pay expenses while Carol and I have been on this trip.
Tomorrow and the next couple of weeks we will go play poker in some of the other poker rooms on the continent.
Sure, I know that you want to go shopping in all the fancy shops and for me to take you to see all the sights, but I am sure that you will let me play a little poker in each of the countries that we visit. But please understand that I only play poker to balance the payments.
"Oklahoma Johnny" Poker tip of the week"
When you are in Rome, you must be a Roman and when you play poker in Europe you must be silent and not talk as you play.
Until next time stay lucky.
