Re: **** Official Medellin Colombia Thread***

What's goodie fellas? I am visiting Colombia with another pro and we are currently in Bogota. There's nlhe here but the games are really small, with the biggest being $2k/$5k but everybody buys in short so it just plays like a $1/$2 with a lot of $60 stacks.

How big are the Medellin games and how often do they run? In the states we grind $2/$5 so we are looking for as close to that as possible. $5k/$10k would probably work as long as there are some deeper stacks than 30 bb.


Thanks for the input fellas!

There's barely cash games available as I reside here 3-6 months a year. I normally grind online and when want to play live I'll play a daily mtt which is extremely soft. I also grind in Miami and when I come to Medellin live is ridiculously soft

Is it possible to grind out $3kUS p/mo with the live games?

How are all you guys that came down for PS doing? Are there other sites that you can transition?

Thanks in advance.
**** I'm shocked poker stars shut down in Colombia. I'm a live grinder from Miami but my parents reside in Medellin so I stY here a couple months of the year and normally grind on stars. SMH I guess party or 888 isn't available either. Will have to check. As for live poker there's one cash game that runs in casino RIO very soft game. With 3k US you can try and find cash games with a 500k buy in at casino rio 5k-10k blinds
