I should introduce myself.
I am a 35 year old, female, copywriter and ex-teacher. I have no children or cats. I have a partner and he has a father who really likes to go fishing and play poker. I hate fishing and I can’t play poker.
This is, hopefully, an account of my journey to finally be able to beat my partner’s father (for the rest of this I shall just call him my father-in-law, it’s just easier and is in no way a hint that I need to have a ring put on it) at poker, namely Texas Hold’em and to find something to chat to him about.
Additionally, I plan to finally win at cards this Christmas. A tall order, but one that I am dedicated to achieving, if only to save face in front of the children that beat me at cards every year.
And so to begin……
