Default Who's still playing? How you doing?

As per thread title. Just seeing who is still around?

I still play live MTT's 2 nights a week, usually 25 - 40 buy in. Play APAT events that are close enough to drive to and I've satellite'd into several GUKPT 25/25's over the last 12 months.

I am 100% convinced that I'm a much better player than I was 10 years ago but it's definitely so much harder to win these days.

I still enjoy playing as much as I ever have done.

I'm still playing online forum games most nights and the odd other online game too. I might play more live games this winter when the weather isn't suitable for gardening or golf. Westfield is less than 20 minutes away so that would be an obvious place to hang out.

Playing the occasional online MTT at weekends and some APATs each year.

Moved to Guildford now, so closest casino is Reading I think and money is tight, so not playing a huge amount.

Am just starting a new journey trying to spin up a small online BR over a period of time, blogging as I go. Not under any illusions that it won't end in failure, but gonna give it a go anyway!

Still squeaking a living out of it but it's grim, limit holdem traffic is more or less gone apart from on Stars. Low stakes games today are way tougher than midstakes games just a few years ago. Player pool is so small now that even something seemingly unrelated like the introduction of Spin and Go's had a noticeable impact on traffic.

The US situation could have been a glimmer of hope - it's quite possible in the next year or so that Stars will get into the US market (on a state by state basis) but it's highly unlikely they'll be on the .com client. If ROW players are allowed at all it would probably be a similar situation to France with a separate US-based client and higher rake.

I still play, but much less volume and slightly lower stakes, maybe 30-40k hands/month of $100nl. I'm aiming to play more and move up again but I'm not sure I'll ever try to match what I used to do.

I'd be interested in hearing what you up to these days as well Ram.

I'm still around most of the time, haven't played any poker for a long time though. Scottie plays cash occasionally when he's home, at least it's either that or he's calling everyone on Facebook a fish?

I'm knocking around on betfred.Don't try posting about any wins as forum runs slow for me and I usually get timed out before it posts.
