Trapped in Texas Hold'Em Poker

Right no, I'm watching a TV show about people who become so addicted to a famous game on Facebook right now, Texas Hold'em Poker. I think you should watch this show for yourself, especially if you are one of them. Texas Hold'em Poker makes online gambling looks fun and how you can do it for killing time. But this show will tell you that something seriously bad is going on behind it.

So many people have already trapped deeper and deeper into this online gambling. A smart college student who wants to try his luck for a few times, finally became so addicted and started to use his school fund to as a bet for this game. He even use the money from an account he shared with his parents. The parents received so many letters regarding unknown transaction in their account. When he realized that could not rely on that account any longer, he turned into criminal action, robbing a bank. Eventually, he surrender himself into the police and admitted the robbery.

There was also a stay at home mother (like me) who become so addicted with this game. Unconsciously, she used almost every penny her family had in the account as a bet. She confessed that it's because every time she feels like she's going to win, she always lost her bet by the end of the game. She's curious and keep betting her money for the next game until nothing's left in her account. Could you imagine that?

I believe that this isn't only happening in other country as we may find the similar cases around us now. You can say that numerous number of people are getting deeper in addiction to Texas Hold'em Poker and continue to gamble. If you are one of them, take your time for a moment to look at your situation. Maybe, just maybe, some of you have already won a big amount of money right now, but have you consider about the amount of money you use as betting to gain that result?

I love games too, I really do. I play almost every kind of games in Facebook but I always remind myself that it's all just for fun. I won't give a penny to buy anything to complete my game and I will definitely avoid the gambling game like Texas Hold'em Poker. Gambling is gambling. They can trap you whether you realize it or not. Always remind yourself, that it's all just game! Just a game! And I won't give any money for it anyhow!
