Yea what Ice said, it's a pretty ridic process, takes 9-14 days on the avg from what others have said.

Yeaaaa, would be sweet if they got me done in 1 week. Would be pretty happy with that.

______________________________________________

Played another mini sesh last night and heatered it pretty hard, here's my final numbers yesterday pre RB.




Before grinding today, I have to go try to open a bank account at Santander bank plus go get a cell phone from Telcell, then will try to find an internet cafe to scan my doc's to send to PS. Will probably go within a couple hours to go do that, just waiting for Miguel to come by as he said he'd be at Calafia today and was going to stop in.

Glglgl today to everyone, will hopefully join you guys on the grind later in the day.

How often would you get the high with only 3k chips in play????? Some serious folding or beats/holds in that game

6K chips in play. Before they added 300/600, it wasn't crazy to get up to the last level, which is 750/1500, especially at a table full of mass tablers that take a long time to act.

It's kind of sad that you literally have to leave your home country just to play a damn card game on the internet. Glad to see everything has gone well so far and I'm confirmed jealous you get to play on Pokerstars. I miss seeing MTT fields in the thousands as a standard, not to mention softer cash games. I probably would have been supernova by now if it wasn't for bf.

Lol yea, its pretty ridic, but whatever. I'm enjoying Mexico so far and I think if I have a successful 2012 and also no problems ever at the border, I might stay here longer than 1 year.

Lol its a bit of a problem, even if I don't know how to say a sentence, I can pick out important words I remember and say them, and they usually understand what I'm trying to say.

Okay so yesterday was a pretty stressful day for me. I started off going to Santander bank, hoping to open a checking account. First of all, the teller doesn't speak any English, but that's np's as I remember how to say "I need to open a checking account", so that was easy to do. So I get to the banker, and he does speak English which is great, but he can't open the account for me as I don't have something proving my address (the lease wouldn't work). So he tells me to go to Telnor and get a landline/contract. I get to Telnor, nobody speaks english there, and I end up not really knowing what's going on, but I figured out what the basic package was and I just straight buy a landline without asking my realtor or the landlord (haven't met landlord, out of town for another 1+ week). So....I have a landline being installed on Nov 9th at the condo .

After getting this contract, I then head back over to Santander, and am this time able to open the checking account, but the banker this time speaks no English at all which made it tough, but I got through it. Headed out to eat at Applebee's with my roommate which was awesome, and then we went over to Tower 1 so another 2p2er could scan all my information so I could send it in to Pokerstars. Sent all the info last night, haven't heard anything back yet, but maybe I'll run good and get set up this week...but I completely doubt it, something seems to go wrong for everyone.

Then so far today, myself and my roommate made a fairly successful trip to the grocery store and I picked up a cellphone at Telcell. I really don't need a phone for anything besides calling cabs in advance...where we live is so ****ing far away from town that it takes forever to find a cab while we're standing basically on the side of the highway right outside the gates of our resort. So hopefully this will make it easier .

Played a bit of poker yesterday, planning on some big volume today though, here's a total graph so far for the month, all games played in Mexico obv.



Gonna get on the grind now, hopefully to get in some decent volume, gl on the tables to everyone.
