      Hello folks,

      By participating in the member of the month poll, you have the chance to give a little thank you to another user who has shown extraordinary commitment within the community. You can submit your suggestion by November 7th!

      If a user struck you as particularly helpful during October, feel free to nominate him here.

      The following list shows the criteria a user has to fulfill for us to accept the nomination:
      1. Active member
        The candidate must have been active since the last member of the month poll. A user is considered active if he posted in October. For Beginners, a fully completed profile (name and address) are an additional requirement.

      2. Current topic
        The reason for the nomination must be within the named time frame.

      3. Reason
        In order for us to understand the nomination, you must name a specific reason why this user should be nominated. You can only nominate one user per poll, with the last nomination being considered final.

      4. Quality nominations
        With the nominations, we take quality over quantity. Nominations that were made "just for fun" or to mock the user in question will be disregarded for our users' protection. Nominations for actions on another user's expense will also be disregarded.

      5. Legitimacy
        A user that has broken our T&C or forum rules since the last poll can't be nominated. The same applies for users who have shown a very negative attitude in the past.

      6. Self-nomination
        You can't nominate yourself.

      7. Self-disqualification
        Every user has the right to disqualify himself.

      8. PokerStrategy.com Employees
        Employees and freelancers of PokerStrategy.com can only be nominated for actions outside their own duties.

      The winner will be interviewed and receives a shirt from our Shop (except the Diamond shirts).

      We're looking forward to your suggestions!
      Hannes

      I'd like to nominate gedwashere91 as Member of the Month for October, for the following reasons:

      (i) He's a great example of how hard work on your game can pay off. In October he successfully moved up to the $12 SnGs on FT, and looks set to climb higher.

      (ii) His blog is entertaining and motivating, and he updates regularly.

      (iii) He is very active in the hand evaluation forums, providing lots of interesting stuff for us SnG saddos to learn from.

      (iv) He has started coaching another PS member (not me I hasten to add!).

      (v) When I pronounced his name wrong, he was very polite.... for an Australian!

      I nominate Huseens, last month he played ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND hands of busto stakes and anyone who manages to do that and not go insane has a patience of a camel. (or is insane already)

      He's not very active in the forums, but that's how it goes when you are dedicated to the game and have to put in those thousands of hands to turn that juicy profit for some camel food. When he doesn't grind he does indeed lurks these forums and since he's not the only one who does that, he could be a great representative for all our silent viewers. In other words Huseens isn't just a simple man, he's not a woman either, and not even a camel, he's a true microstakes badass running the fulll ring streets by flopping sets and shit.

      So my nomination goes for you mister microstakes badass who's prone to creepily stalk people and actively click that F5 button!

      I'm very much looking forward to the short summary of the reason for this nomination at the end of the month. e.g. 'Huseens has been nominated for being a badass stalker who isn't a camel, may or may not be insane, and plays busto stakes'. If I hadn't nominated Ged, he'd get my vote! :f_biggrin:

      Does this mean camels aren't eligible for member of the month? Is this fair? Camels have rights too...

      For the member of the month of October i nominate a great real life fighter and a in poker quick learning as well as others motivating:

      Adapter1337

      Now, this man is really special. I dont even know a person with such intricate real life, with so many difficulties meeting him along the way, he is out of his home country since teenage year, roaming Europe with his awesome girlfriend without knowing any foreign languages, just taking life as it goes from 1 day to another. Sure it has many drawbacks, but he is a fighter to seek for.

      One day he set out to become a poker pro on NL2, and invited TT and me to his house in Spain so that we would introduce him to the game. and now, few months passed, living completely of poker (afair) and playing NL25-50 and soon NL100. u can follow these advantures in his blog

      He is also a regular poster to blogs of others, hence promoting the community and lately he has become 1 of the key parts and a right hand of TwiceT in TTT team, just underlining his unrivalled commitment to the game.
