wanted to get two things into this thread one does anyone else find it quirky that stars and most big sites use United States Dollar amount yet the US is like the only ones not allow to play. i find my southern neighbors very entertaining at times to say the least lol, i know this is cause USD is like number currency used in the world but still a funny coincidence.

second thing i wanted to ask is when people Multi a bunch of tables how do you have your tables set up? i like to have them pretty organized and not to small.

Never thought of that one! Probably use U.S. currency because it's accepted everywhere, but what a joke, U.S. not allowing us to play poker.

As for table setup when playing 3 or 4 tables I use the cascade setting which most sights have in their setup. Sometimes I layer them from big to small, but like you said, not to small, I like to see them.

can you imagine players like jess that will play 10 games at once! I couldn't do it!

not really odd i'd say, although these days yeah, it's a bit awkward..
10 years ago the first poker rooms and the majority of players were from US.
so i guess it's pretty obvious how it started & why every room, even european ones
continued the trend.
Personally i like it this way, even though here we have euros.
when $ goes up, it's time to cash out (more euros value for the same dollars)
when $ goes down, it's time to deposit in euros (more dollars to play) Blink

ive never really took much thought to basing depo and such on the us dollar going up or down cause with the canadian loonie Tongue its usually pretty close to even most of the time. till U.S economy REALLY tanks.

most tables ive done myself green was 13 that was fun and chaotic, i think the key for that is to be smashed Thumbs Up

i have not given cascade a try really cause i find it a bit cramped but i think i just need to mess around in options and s**t lol. thanks for imput!

G'day mate

Well I would remind you that when the 3 largest sites went into operations that American players were indeed playing on the sites and that they was gambling huge amounts of cash.
The real reason the US government stepped in was because they was not getting what they deemed there fair cut in tax dollars so they looked for any excuse to shut them down until they could figure out how to get their cut.
Governments are just legalized mafia Smile

Be cool and win big and often.

The US stock exchanges and S&P are considered the largest in the world. Trading is based on the USD rate of the day. So the standard for doing business in the US and around the world is the USD. A good example of this is if one is in a foreign country and don't have local currency generally the USD is accepted in lieu of. The USD is still relatively strong compared to most other currencies and still is used today as the standard for doing business. Smile
