Top 10 Gambling Nations

By: Adrian_Ac @ 06:13 (EDT) / 596 / Comment ( 2 )
Some months ago going through some news I found an interesting article from CNBC about what countries are the ones that spend the most on gambling. I read it just for curiosity and later that day after playing some hands It struck me… I could use that info in my play! I re-read it and after some weeks of analysis I concluded that it did helped me a little some nations do have a tendency to risk more, but you have to notice that it is not a rule, every player is different and you can find tight players from this countries and aggressive players from places not in the list. Here are the top 10 and a brief recap from me:

10 - Spain - Very aggressive players…  I don’t know why they like to bluff that much! Even in bad spots!
9 - Greece - They do tend to pay a little more for their draws.
8 – Norway – I haven’t noticed much of a gambling tendency, maybe it doesn’t applies to poker players.
7 - Hong Kong – Not many players from this country to have an opinion.
6 – Italy – They can’t play at normal pokerstars… but as a side note because of a tax issue they have their own site in just like in France (
5 – Finland – They have a fame of being extremely aggressive but from my part I haven’t noticed.
4 – Canada – Too many Canadian players! There are all sorts of types of players to categorize.
3 – Ireland – They do pay to draw, but too few players.
2 – Singapore – Very few players from here in pokerstars.
1 - Australia – They got this right… most likely to go all-in in open ended or flush draws. And you could include New Zealand here.
