      Hi guys, 1st I'd like 2 say that my english is bad and i wish u to understand what I want to say ;-)

      Im a profesional player from spain and I'm thinking on go to live in another countrys 4 pay less % 2 the country.

      I've heared that in UK the professional poker players are paying 0% of their winnings but a friend toldme that it isnt true becouse is pokerstars who pays some % from un rakeback then I dont know what is the truth then I decided 2 ask u for this issue.

      Thanx u and if u can make ur responses ni easy english(like to 4 years old kid) it would be easyer 4 me 2 understand it :f_biggrin: :f_biggrin:

      Bye!

      Hey Infinito46,

      Firstly please dont apologise for your English it is ridicuously better than my Spanish :)

      It is true if you live in the UK (or Gibraltar ;) ) that poker is tax free although there has been suggestions in the press recently that this may change, however I don't expect this to happen for some time yet.

      That is the first time I have heard somebody say pokerstrars pays a % from your rakeback and to be honest I think it is wrong as Stars don't actually give rakeback per week/month so it would be very hard to do.

      Hope you understand my English ok..

      Patrick.

      It also depends on exactly what you are looking for and of course your budget.

      How about Newcastle? It is my home town :f_biggrin:

      Lots of young ladies for you, a city renowned for its culture, voted party capital of the world on several occasions, good airport and great inter city transport. Relatively close to Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and other Northern City's.
