One of my dad favorite to watch and I never understand how it is played. Luckily, Solaire invited selected media to learn and get to experience in how to play poker.

Sorry, I do not any photos during our event because taking photos is prohibited inside of the casino.

We are thought about the rules of the game and pointers need to remember. I could tell during the lecture it is giving me a headache trying to remember everything all at once.

We are all given game chips so that something to bet on and while playing is so confusing and somewhat scared. Scared I might bet big amount of money and all of a sudden get bankrupt. Lucky for me even confused I still got to win numerous times and there a time that I won a large pot of the win.

This game is really depending on your strategy and luck.
