First Time? Tell us a little about yourself? Where your playing from, what stakes do you play, love poker? hate poker? How did you first start? Pretty much anything really. Crypto bettor is an active community and we would like to hear more about you

Ill start, in a nutshell... Played on stars as "ariolis30" and on ftp "senditariolis30" known for grinding millions and millions of hands. Supernova Elite for 3 years in a row on stars, moved to Mexico to play, came back to the US and still grinding and working on my game. Recognizing how poker has evolved you cant just nit it up and grind and make money like you used to. Got into btc and been reading and studying it ever since. Very social and active and willing to help anyone trying to get into the game and also to meet new and interesting people.

Hey fellow cryptobettors,
like every other online poker story, I started playing poker near the end of high school and lost a lot of money before I realized the complexity behind the game. I didn't learn my lesson the first time, nor the second or third as my roll got obliterated on numerous occasions. I tried convincing myself that this was a "luck game" but my "eurika" moment came when my friend that I deposited with was actually consistently making money from studying the probability and betting patterns within the game. From this point forward I started to post on forums so that I could learn more about what I can improve on and how I was going to execute these improvements. I slowly grinded my roll up from a free roll "the hubble free roll on stars" where I won 12 dollars that eventually became 1000+ within a month of zombie grinding 5nl. I took this money out and abused all the Ipoker promos and FTP promos and ran this up to 20,000 in around 5 months of hard work. It was at this point I decided to move to China -for their cheaper cost of living- to go for supernova elite on pokerstars. I had a set plan of zombie grinding 25nl - 50nl sitting on 24 tables at once. This however required me to play around 600 thousand hands a month and the isolation in front of a computer every day really got to me near the end of the year. I was able to make 770k vpp that year but I had to stop and fly back home or I was going to go insane. Unfortunately, I was unable to attain my goal for that year but I learned a really valuable life experience from playing so much. If you are not forced to change in the way you evaluate a poker hand you will never expect yourself to progress within the poker world. This is why I feel posting on forums and setting up study groups between friends is of utmost importance to becoming a good player.
As of now I have just recently completed my degree and took a job as a mortgage broker in Toronto but my passion for poker still remains the same. I enjoy talking and reading about anything poker related. This site in particular has got my interest as I fully believe that Cyrptobetting is going to become the next biggest thing for not just poker players. Who wouldn't want a world without deposit and withdraw hassles? a world without a intermediaries to suck your money? Anyways, I am looking forward to talking and sharing poker stories with you guys

Gord here. I consider myself quite a good poker player. I enjoy texas holdem, I was on seals with clubs for a while but I prefer to play face to face. I dont trust online poker, cos i lose too much lol.
Anyways, a little about me. Im a CNC programmer from South Africa, and a Bitcoin enthusiast. I really want to leave my country and travel to Europe or North America. I enjoy Gambling and online gaming.

Hi all, I am also more a roulette and dice player, actually gambling is a quite new addiction for me.
Lost some, won some, but I lost more. But it's fun!
Maybe I'll learn here about some really good sites or ideas/strategies.
