Round 1
So this Friday I am going to my weekly poker game with my mates. so i though that i would teach you guys a thing or two about poker so first off there is going to be a big blind and a small blind. Big blind has to put the minimum buy in into the pot and the small blind has to put half that(this is to ensure that a pot is won no matter what). This is 2 card poker so you are dealt 2 cards. judging on your hand there is 3 things you can do:

  1. Raise - this increases the minimum buy in so if people want to play their hand they will have to match this
  2. Call - This means that you match the big blind and you are willing to play your hand
  3. Fold - This means that you have a bad hand and you are throwing away your cards and waiting till next game.
Round 2
Once the first round of betting is over the dealer will then place out the "River" meaning they will burn one card (throw the top card of the deck away) and then place out 3 card from the top of the deck. Another round of betting will be done but there is one more option you can pick this being :
  • Check - This means that you will not bet anything, if everyone checks then you will move on to the next part but if some one bets then you will have to either call, raise or fold.
Round  3
after that round of betting is over the dealer will then place out the "Turn", This is just like the last one, a card is "burned" but only 1 card is turned over from the deck. Again another round of betting is done.

Round 4
After that round of betting the dealer will place the "River", This is exactly the same as the last one, a card is burned and one turned over from the top of the deck. The final round of betting will commence.

After that round of betting the players will turn over there cards and the deal will decide who has won judging on this list below in the image and judging who is higher that person wins the pot(all the money that has been bet):
and if the people have the same hand then it will be who has the highest second card and if they are the same then the pot will be split meaning they both get half the money that has been bet.

I know that this is off my usual topic but yestaday my mum found a "Scooby String" that I had made in primary school in year 6. As soon as I saw this object i instantly got all these images in my head of my whole primary school life and it put a smile on my face that I couldn't take off no matter what. It got me thinking how something so small as a scooby string made me so happy.

So this is my message to you guys, Go find all them boxes that you put away in the attic or garage like 10 years ago and start looking though it, you will be surprised how little objects like toy cars, key rings, pictures and even old school work books will make the worst of days seem not so bad.

Pros and Cons of motorbikes

So Ive just had a week off from college, that right am at college. The main reason i got this motorbike was so i didn't have to commute 2 hours every day on a bus packed with irate, sleepy and moody people going to work and school every morning and right before a 9 - 4 day, that is not the best atmosphere to be in.

a few other main reason I got a motorbike are:

  1. Traffic - You don't have to wait in line for the Que to go down(however in some country's "Filtering" is illegal and in others it is frond upon. 
  2. Mornings - There is nothing that will wake you up more in the morning than the rush of air flying in your face(and the odd fly)
  3. Parking- Yes parking if free for bikes so i don't have to pay that extra cost just to put my bike somewhere
However the bad point of this are:
  1. Weather - The Cold is not the best conditions to be out on a bike also in snow because that means ice and ice means falls and breaks.
  2. Vulnerability - We are in more danger than any one else. If I hit the wall on my bike, Ive got slim chances of still being alive. 

2 wheel Community

I have only been on a motorcycle for a few months now but I find it amazing how other motorcyclists are so friendly to each other. The video posted below, many of you may not know about because I am guessing most of you are car drivers or don't have a vehicle.

In a way, Everyone could learn from motorcycle riders. Even though they don't know each other they still "get along" with them. Just because you don't know some one done mean you cant be nice to them.

So go on next time you pass some on in the street just give them a smile.

What is that big yellow thing over England?

I woke up this morning to find the sun beaming down out side my window. This means i can go out on my bike for a little ride somewhere. If you don't come from England then you wont know that for the last 3 - 4 months the weather has been awful; Snow, Rain and Wind! and they aren't the best conditions to be on two wheels!
