interesting situation when you finish in first place like man and your girlfriend also finish in 1st place like woman, you are very good pair of poker players then. and it is I think very good for pair when they both play same game, no problems because you play too much and not in home, because both do same

No doubt, it has been a very good year for both of them.

A very good year for him.

With all that winnings they got in total, one thing is for sure.
They dont have shortage in cash Smile

They are successful poker players.
They won a lot of money, that others do not even dream about that.
It matters a lot the ambition to learn poker.
There are players who did not represent anything and in a few years they won millions.
And you can be one of them, if you are serious and learn very well about poker. Smile

I am nice to see hahaha have a partner to get along with you and also share something that you like or in this case should say that both like ... and I see that she does not do too bad either: D I do not think that the problem because you travel to play or because you leave several days because I think she will at least understand or think I accompany him if he is free those days Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile
