What about all the snowbirds from up here that own property down there and go for 4 to 5 months? He couldn't just rent an apartment here? I think its easier than you're making it.

They're used to dealing with US$, TD even stocks certain bank machines with US$ for those of us going across for a night on the town or whatever. You can use a cheque, wire transfer, etc. All of the same banking mechanisms apply.

Yeah, I've been reading up a ton on various threads and it doesn't seem hard. The hardest part seems to be getting FTP/PS to accept you again.

I have, however, contacted a few immigration lawyers from windsor about the situation and am waiting to hear back.

Re: Windsor Casino Ontario

Nice meeting you tonight ungar2000. Same to the other man at the table that identified as a 2p2er, if he happens to read this.

I'll add some content and say it looked busier tonight (Monday evening) than I remember it being on Fri/Sat a few weeks ago. Also, it looked as if they had 2/5 and 5/10 running. Maybe some aftershock of black friday.

As a SE Michigander I prefer to play in Windsor over the Detroit casinos. Better rake and imo better atmosphere.

Re: Windsor Casino Ontario

Re: Windsor Casino Ontario

2/5 was definitely running and I had the impression 5/10 was going as well but I could well be mistaken on the 5/10 and perhaps it was just an interest list. My apologies for posting it as fact when I'm actually not sure.

yeah, you too. So was that guy in seat 3 also planning on moving to Windsor in order to play online again?

BTW, before you sat there was a funny hand in which T5 beat out KJ on an AT3 7 Q board. Just out of instinct I started to say something, but the dude with the T5 told me to shut up and the dealer had no clue, nor did the KJ guy, and the T5 person was awarded the $75 pot. lol. It was that Sylvia chick dealing it.

So you just sat back and let the error go?

I pretty much said that word for word, and he said that would be fine.

Ok. Semantic hair splitting. Very cute.

So you did ignore your ethical obligation.

Interesting. Guess that is gonna work for you then. Don't think I'd want to bet my future on it, but glad it worked for you.

Re: Windsor Casino Ontario

While in Windsor I stopped by BMO Bank and opened an account. I told him I'm a poker pro and am going to live in Canada for 6 months. He said he plays online at pokerstars and he heard about the Black Friday stuff. We talked a bunch of poker and it was super easy. He said I was the second person from Michigan to do this. I told him I play at FTP and need a bank statement to my future Canada address, which I don't know yet, and he said no prob, just to call him when I know it.

No, WTF.

I did mention it, and the dealer and the T5 guy both heard me. The KJ dude was pissed, and showed KJ in his hand and just mucked it, saying he missed. I think the dealer thought it was T5's anyway, which was funny to me. The T5 guy thought it might be overturned or who knows what, so he told me to shut up. So I did speak up and nothing changed.

Re: Windsor Casino Ontario

I have been playing 2-5 there the last couple of weeks. It seems like an OK game but the game is mostly composed of nits and fishy regulars. I think the games are better in Detroit, especially at Motor City.
