Top Poker Players

I like 2 things when I'm not working as a waitress in the Chicago Flaventino night club: internet and poker. And it's became obvious to me that I should combine them together and with a little help of my boyfriend Jack I have created this site. Here I shall teach you how not be a complete loser when playing poker. You should know at least the basic rules and hints to play with your friends or in the neighbourhood poker rooms.
