For tournaments it's probably easier to be profitable if you're a good player, but that's generally how tournament play works anywhere... this place just tacks on another cost to your entry fee as a membership fee, making a $50 buyin be a $50+15 buyin, same as a T$ entry anywhere.

Obviously it's probably fine if you just want to go for a lark once in a while when you want to play live cards and don't want to drive infinity for a real casino or play in an illegal backroom game

Good points. I think I'll give it a try mostly to practice tournament poker as we get closer to wsop. I've played at the Kickapoo in Eagle Pass, which is a 2.5 hr drive from SA, and the cash games are pretty soft (1/2 and 2/5), and won the Sunday torurnament rather easily. I would assume I have an edge over the field here as well, but you never know.

Cheers,

WeChat is the foreign app of choice. Americans use WhatsApp but I think Slack is the current flavor of the month. Not that I've been invited to any...

yeah, I think Ty started some Slack group but it doesn't seem to really be active. None of the regular posters here seem to be actually using it as far as I can tell

Fair... my company is German owned, and whenever he wants to message us directly, he asks if we have WhatsApp -- uhmm, iMessage, bro? It'll work..

Don't you have to pay to use Slack if you want any of the useful features? I'm on a WhatsApp draft group here but I can't figure out how it's better than a group text - maybe a higher capacity?

Also - in 'get off my lawn you whippersnapper!' news, what is the point of Snapchat? Does anyone actually use it?
