GJ bro!
TYVM man

Had a blast in that tourney.

Now, let's bring some life into the thread.

Pic of results since I stopped playing >16 tables, and sleep at night, play during daytime. Not a lot of volume, just a comfy life while growing my business.

Inspiration for myself to follow.

How many tables do you usually play now?

Yeah I am the owner of the first craft beer brewery in Romania, called Ground Zero Beer. You can look it up on facebook.
I grinded the investment in ~18 months as I needed the money to do it.
We started on 1st of April 2015, and the business went up ever since. Right now we're constantly sold out through the summer, even though we're producing 3-4x more beer then 2 years ago. I just reinvested the profit 100% into bigger equipment. Now we need a bigger factory, so we're looking for a new place and thinking about setting up a crowdfunding project to get the money (~200K EUR).

So since I started this business, poker continued to be my only income, and I only earned month by month the money that I needed to have a nice life in Romania. And that led to 13bb/100 at 100 & 200NL But I lack volume, so I might challenge myself to play some more, and higher obv.

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

Party has decent rake races/affiliate deals available also.

So can be much more than 40%.


I really hope they can steal more traffic from stars. All of us would benefit greatly from more competition in the industry.

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

Anyone an expert on cashing out conversions on 888?

On Stars I just change my $ to GBP before I cashout as the conversion rates on site are good. If I cashed out in $ I would lose a lot more at the bank when they convert to GBP.

However on 888 people are saying conversion rates on site are really bad. Does anyone know if it is better to cashout in GBP or $?

Maybe I'm dumb but if the regs move to zoom and the fish use seat me wouldn't it be good to also use seat me as there will now be less regs in those games? Sure you don't get to script straight to a fishes left... cry me a river.

Hate to 'spam' and so does 2+2 but since this is a great cause that started on 2+2's ssfr forum and grew to become a yearly charity that has no losers i'd like to share here.

Is time for our yearly Toyds4kids charity event again. Everything is done through our site now which you can check out at http://toysforkidscharity.com/

With a bit of luck we can have multiple rooms like this

I tried it, prefer zoom. Not many tables running on 888. Also can only play 6 tables. Games are similar to stars, quite a few regs

Was def softer when stars had decent rb and 888 didn't.

Anyone actually count up their effect rb on stars? I did it over a few days and it added up to around 10%, was a lot higher than I expected. Could have miscounted a chest or two.

I play on both these sites right now. Cant speak for Snap/Zoom games but regular tables I would say they play similarly on both sites. 10-50nl.
