Have you ever watched the Poker game on Bravo where they play against celebrities and you always hear the announcer for the game say, “Shuffle Up and Deal” before every game? Every time I hear him say that, I get goose bumps. I love playing poker. I remember when I was younger and my step-father had a pool table in the living room (we learned how to play pool as well) and he would put down a big sheet of ply-wood over the pool table so we could play cards. Most times we would use about 2-4 decks of cards at a time since there were 10 of us playing. The first game we played was BlackJack or some know the game as 21, where you try to add up your cards to 21 without busting (going over 21). Next, we would play Poker. Anything goes, we usually had two wild cards, like dueces (2’s) and one-eyed jacks (there are only two, btw). Anyways, it was a fun time had by all. So grab a deck of cards and go play.
