      Pokerstrategy has done an excellent job in teaching me how to play poker and make a profit, while enjoying the game.

      If I can learn to play poker and be succesful, im sure my friends can do the same while they can earn a bit of extra cashing and have fun at the same time!

      Firstly it was mainly because I wanted to share this great resource of poker knowledge and free 50$ with my friends. When I told all of my buddies I also posted my TAF on some forums more or less to build my BR a little bit.

      It's funny though that none of my friends managed to get starting capital... One was already signed on almost all of the poker sites PS offers and didn't give it a second try to sign somewhere else, the other didn't pass the quiz and the others just gave up before even signing up. I did however managed to forward some forum buddies and some of them are doing quite well as I see, so overall I'm satisfied. :)

      Poker is still a game and if a game is no fun there's no point in playing. Poker just becomes more fun if you got people you know quite well you can talk to about the game.

      "Because a hobby has more fun when shared with friends"

      I found PS even before I knew poker rules. I didn't even need to look for another source because everything I needed was here.

      I had some minor successes and after that I wanted to share it with friends (because I knew they're gonna be jelaous and will ask me lots of questions how did this happen :f_cool: ). I managed to persuade few friends to give it a try but only one of them "survived" - in the end he helped me improve my play greatly and not only that but he also reached 5000PS points thus giving me extra $100 which we divided.

      Most importantly I wanted my friends to learn poker rules so our live games wouldn't last for 7 hours and they would get some basic insight into poker. I didn't completely succeed in that but I won't give up...

      "Because I think they also will like what our community has to offer" because I think PS is the best resource if you start to have interest in poker.

      "Because a hobby has more fun when shared with friends..."

      Then you also have s.o. to talk about what's up @pokerstrategy AND poker itself. s.o. to discuss about videos, articles @rl.

      I told my friends about you because I wanted to extend my bankroll. I also wanted my friends to be able to learn a great game...

      I also wanted to show to some of them that they were wrong when they were saying that poker is rigged.

      Most of all I wanted a friend who I think is cappable of becoming a great player to learn this. I wanted her to learn whats offered on your site and to teach her something too

      Because a hobby has more fun when shared with friends. It's great to have same hobby with my friends because then we can grow together on different levels, not to mention it's awesome to have races with your mates and beat their butts.

      Because I need a fellow poker player that I can also meet in real life. This way we can arrange occasional home games and sessions to improve our game.

      Because I want to extend my bankroll with the Tell-a-Friend feature. How can I say no to a little extra cash?

      But most of all, because I know they also will like what our community has to offer - all those articles, videos and coaching sessions that are here, soaking with information - almost begging for someone to juice up on them. Amazing how a small article can help thousands of players from around the world.

      Keep up the great job, guys! :s_love:
