      There's a lot of Russians on Pokerstars too, you can't tell as easily though as pokerstars lists the city not the country.

      You have to remember that Russia is a huge place also.

      You should be happy. They drink a lot and spend a lot from my experience with Russians. And they are fun to talk to. And the Russian women kick ass but that's not relevant here. :f_cool:

      Because Americans aren't allowed on party poker? Dunno about the chinese though.

      And that's exactly the reason why you'll find so many Russians. It's because they Americans are lacking. PartyPoker also has much less users than PokerStars or Full Tilt Poker.

      Pokerstars and fulltilt have more users because..

      A) American players allowed.
      B) Support from top pros.

      Party poker lacks in both these areas. I've only heard of one pro using partypoker and I don't even remember his name.

      another reason is that , PartyPoker (and PS) accept payment by WebMoney , a very popular online-payment system in Russia, while others dont support.

      BTW all russians are hackers!!! they will hack your PP account and then hack your brain and make you a commie 0_0
      There was a thread about their evil hacking recently.

      To be seroius, there are two types of russians at the tables: fish and sharks=)

      Guys did you even know that now in Russia poker is now a gambling game not a sport? That means that most of the poker clubs in Russia have to move to non-populated area's or disband.
