Re: Grinders moving to Vancouver

lol @ the debate on Vancouver being the nuts.

This city is solid gold. I live in Kits and it is the best neighborhood I have found by far (Fairview also dope). 10 min to Edge for Wed night games, 15 to the Rock, 2 hours to Seattle for real football games (ya I know it is the Seahawks). This is like heaven.

Re: Grinders moving to Vancouver

This is one of the worlds best city's no doubt. The only real downside is its rains ALOT Oct-May. If don't let that bother you then you'll love living here.

I too live in NV and go to edgewater quit a bit.

PLO games at Edgewater are like free money just FYI if you ever feel like a night out, $5-$5 is probably like microstakes to you but the players are terrible and the stacks are deep. Saw a guy call $1000 on the river w/ one pair. Lots of old gamblers who will put their $3000 stack in with a king high flush draw etc. etc.

Re: Grinders moving to Vancouver

BCPC is up on the River Rock site now. Should be easy to fill the 550 person cap on the 3K if a lot of ppl end up moving here.

Re: Grinders moving to Vancouver

Ive been in Van for a bit now, food is pretty corporate and crap compared to what I was used to, but it's a pretty solid city otherwise (I live around UBC/Kits so spend most of my off time on beaches, which is one of the best things about van, theres always a beach nearby).

Play at the edge alot, if you play there im the gregarious talkative young guy who sucks at cash games and breaks even (although srsly). Anyone who wants info on Kits/UBC areas or granville strip nightlife questions feel free to PM me, im also down to talk poker or just drink and meet up with 2+2ers @ UBC there is nearly no poker scene (at least that I've found).

Re: Grinders moving to Vancouver

I need to move to Canada and grind, thought about it after BF now leaning towards it more.

I went to school (graduated last year) in Erie PA which is not far from Canada at all, still have my apt in Erie, although I'm home back in NJ for now. Thinking about crossing over!

I can vouch for the veracity of this statement.
