I play MTT. Stakes 5(+r) to 50.

If there are somebody interested i can give more details about me.

Thanks, and I'm sorry for my english!

Bye!

Re: I'm looking for poker house in Belfast!

Yea same tax laws as England(none), technically all forms of casino games are illegal in N.I(including online poker), although this is a very loose law and it would never be investigated/you do not need to hide that you play etc from anyone including police(If ever that situation arose lol), but due to this law youll never see a casino here, hense no poker, there is one underground game that runs, rake is very high, but if the time runs and if youre itching for a game PM and ill give you directions etc. Closest barring that is Dublin I believe.

The city itself has came along way in the past 10 years, its relatively clean, there is good food/nightlife and relative to Capital Cities its relatively inexpensive. The weather is truly awful though.

Ty for help men!
Its nonsense that you have tax free is all the casino games are illegal XD So now, with the regulation in UK do you know if people from NI can have problems for open a new account in pokerstars or wherever?

Are there MTT in the underground casino?What stakes are playing there? I guess that the level will be low, right?

If you know somebody that is playing poker and looking for a flatmate tell him about me, please

Because she is working in a community, so she has a free house with more workmates.

Nah you'll have no problem setting up any new accounts.

Its less of an underground casino and more of a club, each night starts with a SNG(~40 players 40 BI), which is essentially a hyper(20min blinds live), Then cash starts ~11pm and runs through to 6am(200nl with occasional ROE). The quality of play is generally weak/passive, tbh id only recommend going if you're really itching for a game. Otherwise take yourself down to Dublin, there has been a recent motorway built so it now takes <2 hours to get there, if you don't have the ability to drive whilst here return bus fare is like 15 and runs through the night.

Poker isn't very popular here due to the laws and as a result Im the only person I know who plays for a living here, you're gona find it incredibly hard to create some sort of poker house without getting people from outside N.I.

I just moved to Belfast and was wondering if there are any poker players here looking for a housemate. I play full time poker myself. Its a long shot, but who knows ! Let me know!

Why Belfast of all places? You know the IRA won't start recruiting until after Brexit, right?

Anyway, NI sucks for poker and basically anything classified as a vice. Would be better off somewhere else in the UK if poker is your main income source.
