Re: My move to Mexico for online poker

Looks great Katie.
My job is most likely shutting down in a month and i miss the online grind. I'm beginning to think my next option is a move as well.

Any feel yet for the level of competition online as compared to pre-black friday?

I also can't wait for her to get back online and start crushing again; before Jamie and I became friends, I was a huge fan girl of hers and used to rail her final tables on FTP all the time. She always had such fun railbirds chatting it up too in the chat box. Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't wait can't wait can't waaaaaitttt
I'll probably play 6 days/week and allot one day for fun/beach/excessive photography.

See you guys soon!

The games have all changed to some degree, and in different ways.
But without sounding super elitist or arrogant, I'm just going to say that online poker is still very, very beatable

Re: My move to Mexico for online poker

"I can't really explain the feeling I had when I logged into PokerStars less than a day after submitting all my documents and was able to sit down and play a real money game from Mexico for the first time since April 15, 2011"

....Awesome! I cant wait to get back at it. Deciding right now whether to do the American low/Mid grind or just alternate months in Montreal and play a real site. Does anyone play from Cozumel that you have heard of....or are people mostly close to CA playing?

I personally don't know anyone from Cozumel.
Rosarito seems to be the hotbed right now. Over 100 players...maybe closer to 150 players all within about 5-10 miles of each other. It's actually starting to feel like a college atmosphere...people coming and going all the time, selling their monitors and chairs when they leave...getting together for fireworks or a fire pit...I'm pretty happy with being in Rosarito and really happy to be around so many poker players!

No? Looks dreamy to me. Oceanfront condo with gorgeous views while doing what you love to survive.

I know it may be a grass is always greener thing, but walk a mile in my shoes...

Re: My move to Mexico for online poker

Katie,
It is inexcusable that our citizens have to move out of the country in order to play online poker. In the "Land of the Free" it's disgraceful that we don't have the same rights as citizens of other countries. Hopefully our politicians will get their heads out of their asses soon.

That said, I love Rosarita Beach and that area and I'm glad you have found a great place to live and cool roommates. Once I recover from my knee replacement, I'll be heading your way.

Good luck online.
Linda Johnson

Re: My move to Mexico for online poker

Nice thread Katie, love the photos!

I share your feelings about having to move out of the country to play online poker, we have been here 9 months now, and I am always telling my boyfriend how Mexico feels more like the land of the free, and it is not just because of poker, it is in many other areas of daily living, such as driving around town; we don't feel oppressed like we have to worry about getting pulled over for every little thing. We drove pass the military checkpoint one day, and I was not even thinking about the fact that I had a homemade margarita in the cup holder lol, I was in the passenger seat, but still, I would have been so paranoid if we were in the states.

The US media paints this terrible picture about Mexico, but in 9 months we have had nothing but good experiences here. We walk around town at night, even as late as 11 or 12 pm, with no problems. Last week we decided to walk down to Charles to get some exercise and a bite to eat, it is a little before k38, it was dark when it was time to leave, and we didn't want to walk back, as those roads are dangerous at night, there are no sidewalks and people can't see you, so we took one of those green taxis that the locals use, it costs $1 (we call them buses in the states, but they call them taxis) apparently they will take you all the way to the edge of Rosarito/TJ, for $1. Anyway, we had no problems, and we felt completely safe.

Re: My move to Mexico for online poker

Rylee is loving it here in Mexico. I'm sure she appreciates the beautiful views and breezes, but it's probably more to do with the fact that she goes on multiple dog walks/trips to the dog run each day now. She also has a new buddy in the form of an 8 week old puppy named Morty, and owned by Cyluscylus.

Do you need a passport to visit Mexico nowadays? Or will your DL suffice?

Re: My move to Mexico for online poker

if you take the route from SD to the border i'm pretty sure almost anyone can walk in. All they had us do was push some button then we could walk across to Mexico, unfortunately, I'm not sure if you need a passport to get back into the states, if not then you could prob go that method. Also not sure if other bordering locations are similar, it might be because so many people want to get into Mexico from Cali that they think it'd be too large of a work load to check everyone. And certainly there's probably not too much incs into Mexico you could probably just buy the drugs you want cheaper there haha.

YES, you need a passport to come back into the US from Mexico.

Long time ago Pokerstars email me that a permanent residence was required. all those 150 players just have a mexican bank account and nothing else is required?

Re: My move to Mexico for online poker

I got 2nd place today in Merge's Sunday major, the $109, $100kgtd for $12k...it's my biggest online score to date and my best Sunday by far! Was pretty excited and am still really, really happy!
JamieAnn snapped this photo while I was HU...some of our friends who live here in the same building as us came over to live sweat once they saw I was heads-up. This pic has instantly become one of my all-time favs because I will always remember my first 5-figure online score!
