      Awwww thanks James, that's really nice of you, but I think I'll probably let other community members have a chance with this instead, unless I receive a signed petition of 1,000+ members asking me to lol.

      I will certainly have a go at the community events though, might just bink a win and should be good banter.

      Come on chaps/ladies, get your applications in, chance of a lifetime.

      Best regards,

      English Community ftw... always!

      Hello,

      My name is TobyCS and most of you know me as just Toby. I currently play 50NL SH and MTT on Full Tilt Poker and also some tournaments on PokerStars. I have recently won the daily dollar on Full Tilt Poker but have been struggling in cash games recently. I have been working on my game a lot recently and trying to improve my mindset because I think that is my worst aspect of my game. Here is a picture of cute dogs your your enjoyment:


      [This is not an effort to gain votes!]

      Aside from poker I enjoying playing golf and playing computer games. I currently have a handicap around of 15. It used to be lower but I took a break when I broke my arm and had to recover. I currently play a lot of Left 4 Dead 2 with friends which is super fun and also planning on getting Starcraft 2 (hopefully it doesn't take over my life).





      You should vote for me to be represent this community because:
      • I am very responsible
      • I like a challenge
      • I am motivated
      • I am exciting

      If you vote me I will do the best job possible and make sure that a member from this community becomes the champion! Vote me and you won't be disappointed! :)

      Hi evryone,

      It's always exciting and sad to come here and see all of u guys...
      Exciting to remember all the time spent with all of u... sad that I couldn't keep coming here as much as I use to.
      I've spent a piece of my life in this great adventure and coming back here always remind me of how happy I use to be...

      I'll be part of this great event (a great evolution of the BOTD). Hope to see all of u during the qualifying rounds
