Probably about 12-15 years ago, Jack played poker in a casino two different times.  Both times he won money, and both times he had no idea what he was doing or even what game he was playing (it was probably Hold’em).  He decided to “quit when he was ahead” and stick to Blackjack. 

 Then Chris Moneymaker won the Main Event.  During 2004, he spent some time playing Hold’em, but mainly just to figure out what beats what and how the game is dealt.  Started playing for real in 2005 and played in my first and only WSOP event in 2006.  He usually plays No-limit Hold’em but he also like playing limit and Omaha.  Oh, yeah, and Blind Man’s Bluff.
