    Hi Forum Members

    I am a semi-pro poker player and also Blackjack player. Mostly play in the UK poker rooms and sometimes in Europe, been to Vegas a few times, but need a bigger bank roll before I try my luck there on the Poker.

    I make a decent living in tournaments and really enjoy the lifestyle.

    Really look forward to hearing from you all and hopefully learning a few things here.

    Great to be a part of the forum.

    Hi Floppy, and welcome to Meisterland :)

    I know a few people who could use the above quote to describe themselves. Sadly what I find it translates to in too many cases is:

    ''I go to the casino, win loads of money off strangers playing poker, then give it to the casino staff at the blackjack tables when I'm done'':eek2: I hope thats not the case for you :) It's not the case for me of course. (I give it back at the roulette wheel...)

    Do you play online or live games mostly?

    Hi Floppy, another Brit onboard :)

    Nice that you can make a living from playing poker. Something I sadly never managed to do. :(

    IanO already beat me to the question, but do you play your Poker online or in B&Ms, or both?

    Welcome to the forum! :thumbsup:

    Online & Land

    Hi Guys

    I play both online & landbased, online there is so much value but so much more risk of course. Best I managed so far is 4th in the PokerStars super sunday tournament. BlackJack is my weakness but I only lose a little as I know I will lose it (if you know what I mean), my income is poker really. I am a "semi" because to tell you the truth I have a good paid job.

    How about you guys you play online and landbased?

    Sadly I've not played either since I came back to Ireland in October... and am really missing it. Before that I played as much of each as I could (but more online through sheer convenience)

    I must try to get to a game soon before I forget how to play.

    Only online for me. (Except once a year at the LAC conference).
    I play at PKR because I just lurve their wicked avatars! :thumbsup:

    I don't generally have the patience for the big tourneys - 2 or 3 hours only to get knocked out just before the money placings is too frustrating! Though I did finish 3rd in a "PKR Vegas Nights Speed" tourney in January & won $294 from about a $5 buy-in!

    I usually just play 6-seat sit & go speed Texas games for $11 or $22.
