Texas Hold'em

CanadaSanti bought some poker chips at a 'second hand' store here in Waterloo ("Generations"), so the kids have been playing a lot lately.
 
Obviously, they have as much knowledge about poker as I do about the Etruscan culture. But it's still a lot of fun to watch.
 
Santi cheats in order to win most hands (well, it's his job as the older sibling); Juan thinks that having an eight in the hand and a nine on the table is good enough to go 'all in'. Carolina has no idea of what she's playing, which makes the whole thing even funnier. She bet a crazy amount of 'money' in one hand, without even looking at the cards that were being drawn by Santi...because she had a blackjack! :-)
 
I was working, but I was sitting at the same table, so I watched for a while until I decided to join them. But before that, they allowed little Florencia to play. Flor wouldn't even look at the cards, and honour every bet the other three made. The results? She won, of course! :-)))
 
Tonight, even Gaby joined us and we all played for a good 45 minutes, with the victory coming my way this time. The kids got a kick out of the 'having fun all together' thing, so I guess this will happen again tomorrow. And then I'm buying that "Risk" game that was winking at me the other day!

Santi compró unas fichas de poker en un negocio de artículos de segunda mano aquí en Waterloo ("Generations"), así que los chicos han estado jugando mucho últimamente.
 
Obviamente, tienen tanta idea del asunto como yo de cultura etrusca, pero igual es muy divertido mirarlos.
 
Santi hace trampas y así gana casi todas las manos (bueno, es su trabajo por ser el hermano mayor; Juan piensa que tener un ocho en la mano y un nueve en la mesa es suficiente para jugarse todo. Carolina ni siquiera parece tener idea de a qué juego está jugando, lo que hace todo aún más divertido. Apostó una cantidad enorme de 'dinero' en una mano, sin siquiera fijarse en las cartas que Santi daba, ... porque tenía un blackjack! :-)
 
Yo estaba trabajando, pero en la misma mesa que ellos, así que los miré por un buen rato hasta que decidí unirme a ellos. Pero antes, los chicos invitaron a Florcita a jugar. Flor ni siquiera miraba las cartas, y veía cada apuesta que los otros tres hacían. El resultado? Bueno, ganó ella, por supuesto! :-)))
 
Esta noche, hasta Gaby se nos unió y jugamos todos por unos 45 minutos, con la victoria viniendo para mi lado esta vez. A los chicos les gustó esto de que juguemos todos juntos, así que calculo que volveremos a jugar mañana. Y después me voy a comprar ese juego de "Risk" que me guiñaba el ojo el otro día!

  3. Great photos. Looks like good fun. I may have to come and play your kids, maybe I could actually WIN a hand at hold'em! Although it sounds like I would have to keep a close eye on them...

  6. Mariposa, it surely was a lot of fun. And you should have seen Flor bragging about having beaten her siblings...

    Chris, you might have a good chance against Santi when he doesn't cheat, or maybe Juan. But don't dare play against my daughters! :-)

    Mike, yo me había enganchado a jugar online poker, pero no me terminó de atraer nunca. No me entusiasman mucho los juegos de computadora o internet...
