      Hi everyone,

      I'm from Australia (not as my name suggests I know) Just got into online poker at the beginning of this year..

      Looking forward to learning to play some solid poker and building a decent bankroll and see where poker takes me.

      Just also wondering if anyone else on here grinds in Melbourne Australia?

      Good luck at the tables

      Cheers.

      Thank you =)

      That's good to hear, hopefully will get in touch. I'm currently playing on Full Tilt. Got introduced to poker by my cousin who's overseas. So looking for someone in Australia who grinds too.

      Thanks for the reply

      Teddy

      Hey Teddy, welcome to PS. Im not from Melbourne, but do travel to play at Crown every weekend that permits and grind/crush the 1/2 and 2/3 tables most of the weekend. GL with moving in to the online game, just a warning though, crushing 1/2 online is 100 times harder than in the real live world, or at least it has been for me, i cant even be a consistent winner at 10/25c online.

      Cool, Yea I've been to Crown poker room a couple of times and noticed the same thing. On the 1/2 in Crown everyone is limping in half the time ^^ and the buy ins are a bit weird. $80 max for 1/2??

      Ah I guess no ones in Melbourne. Was hoping to find some to coach me or something or to grind with =(

      Oh tell me about, those 1/2 tables are just a bingo festival, had to drop back there for 5-6 sessions, drove me insane, having to give bad gambling fish right odds to call because of ridiculous 40bb buy-in. Now the all 1/2 tables have been made turbo tables where u only have 10 secs to act, OMFG, WTF, Crown WINNING!, LoL. Glad to be back at 2/3 where at least the the max buy-in is 70bb where some decent poker can be played. GL again with the FT grind Teddy, wont see you there, as im at Party and have also just opened a Cake account with PS.

      Yea they're turbos but last time I went in the early hours of the morning about 2ish we started playing turbo and slowly the dealer just sort of phased it out lol. don't you have to play $5 / hour for 2/3 tables?? that's what i heard before?

      $5 per hour + rake is daylight robbery

      Yeah mate, $5 time charge every 60-90 mins, $9 Coronas, $11 JDs, Crown WINNING! I start a good buy-in or two down before i even start, when playing 10-24 hour sessions, but still been very profitable for me (especially last year, won 37 of 46 sessions) so i guess i dont think about it a lot and just put up with it even though i know in the back of mind it is blind robbery.
