i was never in the pso for the glory, rather i was playing against myself and doing quite well i may add. for those who haven't read my blogs and posts in the forum i use pso as a tool to help me recover from a serious stroke which left me with brain damage and a buggered up right side of my body.

i moved my way up to a ranking of 369 or thereabouts and the feeling of pride i felt in that was enormous. but now i almost don't feel like playing....the easy camaraderie of the tables has all but disappeared, everyone on the tables now talks their own brand of european gobbledegook, (nothing against eurpeans but you could at least try to speak english on an english speaking site...it shows bad manners if nothing else) and the whole feeling has just changed.

i will continue to play this month because that is what i initially set out to do but next month i just don't know. i really really hope it works out for the u.s players.

I hear you loud and clear.

Those of us in Canada speak English, except those that speak French.
Actually a whack of us speak les deux.

So I'll be sure to say hello if I see you on the tables!

Well that just goes to show you 2 the omnipotent power of the good old USofA Gummint.

When they put their minds to it they don't just eff it up for some,they eff it up for all.

Just look at it this way,there ain't a US player that wouldn't trade places with you in a heartbeat.

Gonna miss all you guys and gals to.

Good luck.

What can l say, this makes me sick, for those that really know me, l played the pso and homes games for the fun of it, but mainly because of the great peeps l have gotten to know here and now call friends.

very very sad day for sure, not really sure what more to say, but this sucks,

please peeps, don't leave yet, maybe this will get fixed somehow, l hope,

cheers

I'm not going anywhere. I'm confident things are going to work out. I can still rail in the Drunk Tank and post here. PokerStars isn't going to let us down, but they have a lot to sort through right now. I'm leaving my money on the site so that I am ready to go when the US players get the green flag to play again. It will happen---might take a little time, but it will happen.

Good luck.

As an American who is married to a Canadian (and living in Canada) for me it might be a bit of survivor guilt. If the real estate market hadn't gone south in the states a few years back, we would still be living in Florida. So I could very easily have been right in your shoes.

Its just a mess and I hope it gets straightened out.

Funny to hear someone from NZ complain about Europeans where the demography up until the late 20Th century was dominated by Europe.

Maybe, if we spoke some Maori, that would make you happier, why this sudden affiliation with the US?

Where do you think English came from..........the US?????

I am an Irishman and proud of it. I have my quibbles with England and the UK, but without the English, you would be speaking Maori and the people in the US would be speaking Indian, so stop your racist, small minded, bigoted remarks, and just play poker !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And if someone is speaking a language other than English that you cannot understand then report it to the chat moderators.

No just stay with your own little brand of bigotry and racism my dear....

It has obviously served you well and you might reflect that karma is a wonderful thing.

Have a great day,

TC

A colonized (if you want to use American English LOL) Irishman and proud of it
