Posted by RoninHarper: i have been offered a stake into this event but i am not sure the US boarder will let me enter the USA
tell you what you must have some pretty nice friends with all these staking offers. either that or they think your the next phil ivey have you been bigging yourself up a bit??? lol only messing. well you have a few months to check on your border crossing credentials. why wouldn't they let you in anyway? are you a wanted man? or do they just have crazy boarder laws?

actually no I have not. What I have done in the past was pay all my bill for 18 stright months with only poker winnings. I have win 1st place in several turny's and my friends have seen me win what they consider big money. They all tell me I should play poker as a profession but I got so burned out before that I just have been playing freerolls for fun lately. I literally did not play any poker for almost two years, I was living in Virginia on April 15th and only moved back to Canada in September.
So I have really been easing back into the poker lifestyle
I hope this does not seem like bragging. I do not mean for it to come across that way. I am just trying to clarify why people are trying to get me playing again. I also belonged to a stacking site before Black Friday and was considered a profitable horse.

A month and a half full of poker action in the city of poker, although they are used to it, this sure must gain another dimension there. I guess that only those who have passed there can have a guess about how those who live there the entire year have a perception about these bigger events. It must be like having a regular championship and the yearly main event!

to me it looks kinda funny that the biggest series of poker is taking place in the country players of which cannot play online poker at all really usa messed up the whole thing with the banning of online action- they could've just left room open for us players & at the same time create laws that would tax them, but they chose to stop the action and then create those laws...kinda silly imo
