"Besides results I'm very happy to travel the world as a poker player meeting a bunch of nice and wonderful people," explained Hof, who currently resides in Cologne, Germany. "I'm proud of my EPT Ladies Event title, which I took down two years ago in Vienna while living there. It wasn't a big amount of money, but it felt great, and it was a lot of fun playing with amazing women. We need more of them."

| Wow. Pretty face from Germany!|
Natalie Hof's 3-year contract with PokerStars ended recently. I am sure she will adapt quickly to the new working environment. She has got a bright future ahead of her.

| i just wonder what is the logic behind the new trend of hiring more female poker "pros" than male ones. sure it's always nice to see a pretty face (and hopefully some boobs as an added bonus), but maybe operators are trying to attract more women into gambling, tap into new wast lands?|

| Yeh! I saw this in one of those lovely social media sites where she appears in all her glory I a. Cute little video telling people about her new role and encouraging people to join in. I don't think she would convince me to play poker, but would happily spend a little time chatting to her and hopefully I would learn a few things.|

| Is it like the sign up season for the poker sites? |
The professional players get some extra money.I dont see how that works for the site though.
Never cared which professional plays in a site.
I believe it is the offers and returns that count, and not which pro plays where

| How come these new signed up ladies who are about to become 'ambassadors' of these poker websites never hideous looking nerdy mathematicians who playing poker for a living, rather than hosts, hostesses and tv-presenters with a portfolio ofbrand new headshots under their belt for 'other modelling works' meanwhile playing poker as a hobby???|

| pretty woman and engaged in what she likes and does this progress .... it's really great job ... I want to wish good luck to her .. and progress in the game and more of the best achievements in the tournament .... that's just probably not the best 888 choice ... and so this room is very steep and more players are unlikely to lead|

| Tal como he comentado, es necesario tener paciencia, jugar muchas manos y ser consciente de que los resultados acaban llegando a largo plazo para tener alguna opción de ganar en ésto. Eso en vivo no puede suceder, entre otras cosas por un motivo obvio: la velocidad. Cualquiera que haya jugado en vivo o visto torneos en vivo sabrá que entre que el dealer reparte, uno se lo piensa, el otro sube, ven el flop, se lo piensa otra vez, se tira, el dealer baraja y vuelve a repartir... posiblemente hayan pasado un par de minutos, como mínimo. En ese tiempo online yo ya he jugado más de 100 manos. Entonces, con una proporción (me la estoy inventando) de 100:1 es IMPOSIBLE que a uno le ocurran las mismas cosas en vivo que online. |
Es cierto que no todos los jugadores multitablean varias mesas, pero igualmente la velocidad de una mano online es muy superior a una mano en vivo. Luego, tenemos otro factor. Sabiendo que en vivo tardan tanto en repartirte una mano jugable, lo que hacemos es jugar más manos, ésto es, adoptar un estilo más abierto de poker. Al jugar más manos, la calidad de las mismas es menor, por lo tanto no nos encontramos tantas veces COOLERS (mano buena vs mano buena en una situación en la que estamos obligados llegar hasta el final). Online nos reparten muchos AA, KK, AK... hay más probabilidades de acabar chocando entre nosotros que en vivo, donde la velocidad del juego hace que nos repartan menos manos buenas (si jugáramos el tiempo suficiente nos acabarían repartiendo las mismas) y acabemos jugando manos un poquito peores para no morirnos del aburrimiento.

| Hey, trasher5000. |
Thanks for posting a seemingly meaningful message. But I have no idea what you are referring to. Is there any way for you to restate your comment in English so that forum members can understand what you are talking about?

| Hey guys! 888 poker has signed this player I have never heard about. Is she good or is she just another "pretty face" female semi-professionnal poker player that's just getting sponsored because of her looks? |
It's funny how we don't see the real creative skilled players anymore, they're all playing high stakes cash games at macau :o
