      Hi everyone!!
      I finnally got here, all my poker mates have been telling me to get here and learn the real deal,so here I am.
      I'm from Spain, but my poker addiction began in London,playing 6 days a week in every bar,pub,home game the tube could get me too. The first months was pretty bad,couldn't get any profit,any at all. I wasn't very open to the idea of online poker, but one day I couldn't get any game in London (yeah,can you believe that?),so I downloaded a software and played all night,and that was the first night I made some real profit. The thing is that online you can play so much more with little money,and you can bluff much more also,at least that was my case. Then I started reading about poker, and it seems that the winning poker strategy is REALLY tight! I couldn't believe it, tight? I thought tight game wasnt profitable since phil hellmuth. Well, so now I guess im gonna change gears.
      I live in Valencia now, mechanical engineering student with a passion for sports (including chess and poker,I think they're both sports now), and,of course,a passion for parties and music.
      I can't wait to start reading the bad beats page!
      Have fun and,if you play well enough, I will see you at the 2016 final table.
