This change will also kill russian ptr and that means that the ability to detect suspected bot accounts will be gone.

Re: *** Official 2017 Stars Regulars Thread ***

Now you mention it Slugant, I didn't fully pay attention to the amount of players playing TCOOP events/sattys with cash on the side. MTT event on a monthly basis would be great Imo. The fact sattys exist should help a lot.

Re: *** Official 2017 Stars Regulars Thread ***

I just checked results for 2016 and I had my best year in regards to winrate, but my volume was 1/3 - 1/4 from past years. Only played 16 tables tops @ 12 bb/100 100NL&200NL with a bankroll of ~6k for the most part. I have 10K now, I can bluff.

Re: *** Official 2017 Stars Regulars Thread ***

is there any possibility that after "seat me" or whatever its called zoom fr will start to run again or has the playerpool shrunk too much? havent played fr in a long time, but fast fold fr was my favorite game back in the day.

The two aren't related. Unless you mean after "seat me" fails and all cash games become zoom - then yeah there is a chance I suppose.

They are def related. Seat me will push a lot of players towards zoom, expect zoom traffic to increase a lot when seat me is introduced.

the regs will move to zoom, fish will use the seat-me feature. and zoom-fish play a lot tighter, so this is definitely not a good development for any FR-reg.

If you guys had saved and invested a huge part of ur profits/kept living with ur parents to get free food/housing, you could live pretty well without working even if poker died tomorrow.

Specially those guys who got the 2006-2010 poker bonanza back then.
Someone who makes $100k/year for 5 years investing 90% of it wouldn't need to work anymore in their lives.

and 100k/year is pretty conservative, I saw some guy here who had an hourly of $300 back in 2003, he 24-tabled NL1K as a 9/5.

I don't know how is the yearly % of the lowest risk investment in your countries, but with 100k/year investments, for 6 years in Brazil, you should have ~700k total + a 35k/year income(after tax and inflation), risk free.

If you want to compare it to a normal job's salary before taxes, it would be around 50k/year

Having a 50k/year earnings without doing nothing is awesome, just see how people out there bust their asses to get that salary, even you guys who play like crazy.

Thank you for contacting us.

Please note that these tables were removed over a week ago.

They were not very popular therefore they are not offered anymore.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. Thank you for playing with us.
