I think I may have mentioned before that I'm a little bit addicted to internet poker.

Well I just WON my first tournament!

That's me with the '1' next to my name (click to enlarge).

$270US for a $5.50US outlay, not a bad morning's work.

Am I excited? Much!

I even jumped out of bed and did a little poker dance when I won.*

For those who care, I won with an Ace high flush in hearts.

Watching: England v Sweden

*Yes, I play in bed... because... well, because I can.

Dare I ask- how long you played prior to the win - I mean all the times you had played, and in that time, how much was lost? ..

How pessimistic of you Wendy.

Are you implying that I have a gambling problem?

...I have been playing for a year or so, and I can assure you that I have received more cheques in the post than I have made deposits on my credit card.

I'm still a bit scared of the high stakes stuff, but I'm happy winning my $30 here and $50 there.

just asking.... gambling is actually a recreational activity - so, not a method of making money .. that is, you usually lose more than you make.
Not so sure about cards but that is certainly the way it goes with machines -
Gaming stats- the losses are stated by the Australian Productivity Commission in 2002 estimated it at $14 Billion pa, or an average of $1000 per adult. Problem Gamblers contribute approximately one third of this figure.

Gambling artefacts have been recovered from China (2300 BC).
A set of ivory dice was recovered from Thebes dating from 1500 BC.
King Henry VIII tried to outlaw it among his soldiers, various governments since have tried to regulate, with varying degrees of success.
Playing cards were brought into Europe by the Marmelukes, followers of Islam.
