      Hello Sirs, my name is RON REGIS and I am born and based in the Philippines. Poker has been enjoying a steady boom here the past four years. We started out with underground home games because the local government was a bit clueless, but now we have seceral 24/7 card rooms spreading different stakes.

      I started out rounding LIVE, but this year have gone almost exclusively online.

      I started and maintain a small egroup with fellow local pros as a way to support each other.

      Good to have you on board Ron, welcome to PokerStrategy.

      Not sure how many existing players from the Philippines there are on the site, but I'm sure others will make themselves known to you over time.

      You'll find us all friendly and supportive here across many different nations.

      Wishing you every success, good luck at the tables.

      Hey Ron,

      I'm also from the Philippines, specifically in QC. I've been playing for a year now at stars, and it's still so rare to see a fellow Filipino at the tables. I'm glad there's a few at pokerstrat.

      Nice to meet you.
