      Hey, with the new laws in France that don't allow them to play outside of France ,at least, on Ipoker there has been a drop in the number of players of ( and it is only my perception ) about 25-30% . I know that the USA still has problems with their legislation regarding online poker ..are there any other countries with such problems or with developing laws that wouldn't allow the players to play outside their borders?
      I'm asking this because IMO poker's got tougher at least in the last year . Many regs ,better playing and now all this legislation crap.Poker platforms are merging because they don't have enough players ,bad players/fish are harder to find and the waiting lines are getting ridiculous.
      What do you think the future will bring? Actually i'm a bit scared because i wanted to make a career out of poker but the way things are going it seems very unlikely.

      Well you can play offline too.
      Personally I am not bothered by laws and crap. I feel like this: when I can't change it, there is no use bothering. If they accept laws - so be it, what can I do?
      I am going to play until possible and that's all.

      The truth is, poker will always be the same and the great players will continue making money, there will always be fish because there will always be new people joing the game. You are prob finding it harder because you've moved up in limits so you are playing against harder opposition.

      I also would love to make poker a career, and I have found great insight yesterday after I went to a casino in London and everyone had new clue how to play...I knew for a fact if I went there one day with a large enough roll and sat there the whole day, I would prob have a winning day every single night.

      I'm not talking about live play ,it's a different game. And of course the great players will make money ,but i'm not a great player,i'm just average.
      It's not that i'm climbing the limits, it's that many pro's said that nl100 now is like nl400 3-4 years ago so i'm thinking that at this rate nl 25 in a couple of years will be like nl100 now.
      How about the first question,do you know other countries that have similar laws as France?

      I think Itally has the same law as France now if im not mistaken. The reason they are making this law is that a lot of money can go out of the country or some crap like that. I've read about it in some article last week. Thank god they can't do that in Slovenia considering we only have way to few players.

      Oh yes. In fact i believe that in 2012 reptile people will crawl out of deep underground tunnel which looks similar to George bushe's ass and go on mass butt raping spree. Lot's of people will get butt raped to death this way only gay people shall survive and fires rain down from the sky as homos of the world unite with reptilians and form new race "Gayrappers".

      All signs point to this theory being true. I actually think that reptilians already began the morphing of two races and we have some experimental Gayrappers between us.



      Here's how reptilians look:








      And here's a homo:



      Now combine these two and guess what do we get?????






















      A GAYRAPPER!!!!!!



      Don't ask me why he's black, probably so he could hide better in night because all day long he was hustlin' and pissed of lots of people who are now searching for him and gonna shoot his fat ass down.
