    If it wasnt a 6 hour drive I would go and play an event or 2. Drove to Jacksonville last night after work to play 2/5. Easiest game ever, left +1k

    Do you play on Ignition?

    I was always Bodog/Bovada but haven't played in a year or so online. Finally in our new house and have my setup back and looking to play again.

    I've never used Bitcoin but is this the safest/best way to move money?

    Yes and yes, ignition is pretty much just a different skin of bovada without a sports book.

    A random Poker Night in America from a year ago popped up on my youtube recommendations, one of the players is an associate or made guy from the Philly Mob. No idea how he was allowed in the casino.

    I know it's a weird contrast considering I love gambling, but I'm not putting any money on a site until there's a firm ruling either federally or in my state.

    Either MAY happen before I die.

    would really like Florida to approve it. But If it happens we will probably be one of the last considering the amount of casinos and card rooms in my state

    Pennsylvania just took a step to legalize online. Hopefully they are next in line. I've played for years. I'll never play high stakes online but I have won/cashed in my share of $10 - $50 buy in MTTs.

    Ignition (new skin used to be Bovada/Bodog) and
    Winning Poker Network (skins are America's Cardroom, Black Chip poker, True poker), there are a few other minor players, but these two have the largest player pool and best history as far as not being fly by night, paying out in a timely manner.

    Largest player pool is also a relative term.

    Watch him stream from time to time. Entertaining guy who is definitely a bit full of himself and his ability. Some monstrously bad punts that even a terrible player like me can see coming from a mile away, but he always seems to ship a big tournament every couple months to make it all back

    He's a hellacious cash game player, especially HU, and sometimes has trouble transitioning that game to tourney situations. Agree he's a bit full of himself.

    #coolstorybro but we both FT'd a small stakes tourney years and years ago and I didn't know until recently it was him. Small world in poker, I guess.

    Met a bama fan at the Price is Right last year that's a pro, Eric Fields. Looks like he's cashed in 2 events at the WSOP. Any way to see if he's entered in the ME?

    Yeah, it's hard to blame him. Dwan's the same way except for the whole Triad slave thing.

    Before the boom, that was how most of the Bobby's Room regs were about tournaments. Even Doyle went like a decade without playing the ME.

    In college we had poker league, cash games every Sunday for more than two years. I haven't played since then but what helped me in strengthening my game was -

    Looking at my (two cards) hand once. Memorization was key for me.

    This way, I could spend time observing everyone else and their bets, folds, etc. instead of players who are constantly glancing at their cards, or checking their cards whenever it's their turn to call, raise, fold.

    Don't know if anyone else was watching the cash game on twitch. Polk ran it up for about 200k over 8 hours then lost it all plus another 120k in the final ten minutes. Just an absolute meltdown.

    My vegas trip just got cancelled bc of Irma. No poker for me until this thing passes. Had a dealer telling me he dealt a 10/20 PLO high low game a couple weeks ago and pushed a $102k pot. That's crazy. I'm happy with my $200 pots on $2/5 NL

    I play at this place all the time and know the dealers and management. Wasn't BS. All of them vouched for it and said the game was crazy as they didn't have a max buy in. Had people buying in for $30,000.
