Re: Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

There's a weird thing about laughing when denying a request in Philippines. You can open an account at the CoD cashier too, but not at the poker room itself. It was much harder in CoD though and I never did it, but I had friends who did.

Currently have a dell 3007, but he needs a twin or something similar.

There's a Herman Miller branch in Serendra BGC. It's the top of High St across from MarketMarket on the 2nd floor.

Re: Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

For screen I would look at dynaquestpc, PCHub, PCExpress or any computer shop at Gilmore Ave, Quezon City.

I got good experiences with shipping from some of these, but for 30+ inch screen I would rather check online, ask if they got stock in nearby branch and visit one of these shops to check for dead pixels etc.

Yes, just send a Philippines lease / utility bill to poker sites to verify the address. Only iPoker is banned.

PartyPoker is also banned for Philippines registered accounts. I just got off the phone with support today and withdrew my remaining balance.

Since I'm staying less than the 59 days for the ACR, can I make a bank account? If not, is p2p my only option to get funds immediately into pokerstars?

They almost always want an ACR card but it's the Philippines you never know, some say they opened an account without it.

Neteller, Entropay... select country here https://www.pokerstars.com/poker/real-money/

If you can't deposit onto those with US card you could go to Thailand, I see you posted in the Thai thread, get a bank account there where it's easier, register Thai address on stars, deposit onto Neteller/Entropay with thai bank card (can't deposit directly with it), then onto Stars. Then just use that account when in the Philippines. Or you could play at a WPN skin with bitcoin

Big hassle but it's doable. Nowadays everyone is playing in Chinese poker clubs on the Pokermaster app, I'd be doing that instead

I try to leave as late as possible. Going to THE casino at 5 pm is out of THE question. After Midnight THE traffic is lighter and games usually better as well
