    I believe Party Poker is based in India so the age laws dont apply, but you will need some way to transfer money into your account.

    I love both online and live poker

    Online: I play partypoker single-table NL hold'em tournaments or low-limit games (either $.5/1 or $1/2) and there are a LOT of "fish" on the tables. I finish in the money roughly 75% of the tournaments I've played in, and finish 1st in roughly 1 of 3 games in which I finish in the money. You can play more than 1 game at a time, I often play 2 - one with a low buy-in and one with a higher buy-in. The benefit of online gaming is that no one really knows who you are, there are so many tables to choose from, and you can see endless amounts of hands in one day and play tournaments in an hour.

    Live: playin with friends (for me) is just for fun/competition. I think I'm one of the best poker players among my peers, I research and study poker strategy as well as taking into account pot odds, other people's play, and changing my own play by learning from mistakes.

    Poker is great.
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.

    Not an add paul, PartyPoker_Pro is a bonus code to get free money, you can get the money and then never play there again. Unfortunatly I dont know any other codes for any sites other than Party Poker, but if I find any I will post them. And if you want you can just start with play money, which is fun except people dont quit play the same with play money. Soul what kind of tournys do you play? Do you play the sng's? I dont much care for limit myself, I hate getting drawn out on.

    I play for a living on pokerstars.com

    Thought I would bump this as it may help me out if there are any other rounders on here or I could advise recreational players.

    Been laid off since mid Jan. and haven't done much else except play online poker. Up about $12,000 right now. Unfortunately, as a means of making a living, the uncertainty of income makes it a little too dangerous for my taste. Going to have to start grinding it out 9 to 5 again and use poker as a nice supplemental income.

    And I'm starting to get fat sitting on my arse all day.
