Ive been wondering were all the French players are? Is online poker not available in France or do they all have a life, and have no time for poker. Which also brings me to my question of, which country is least represented in the new PSO league? and which country has the most players? Im guessing Russia has the most because every time I start a game, I usually get seated with 8 of them.

Hey Brizz, congrats on your finish last month, and hope your move went nice and smooth, Yeah I thought it was strange that i haven't seen any French players at my tables, was just curious as to whether or not they can play on-line poker. Im dying to ask one of them if its true that all French women have hairy armpits or is just a myth. anywayz m8 good luck out there and believe me your gonna need plenty of it now

Poker is controlled legally in France, so there is a Pokerstars site but you can only play the French site if you are resident there and under the rules and regulations enacted by the French government.

So in essence the French can only play with themselves which I suppose they have more or less always done

It is illegal to operate and own an online poker site that is based in Germany; you can open up your own brothel though

Cheer's Hitman the move was an absolute nightmare - worst 1 ever - but it's over now thank god !!
It's the german women who have hairy pits - You are right though - not a french person in sight - which is abit of a shame seen as there are so many coutries represented on the PSO League.
And right again m8 - need alot of luck or just press the fold button for the 1st hour.
Got KK on the 2nd hand Twice.
last night i folded them for the 1st time ever - maniac had 10 6 and hit them both on the flop.
Today i played them and lost to Quad 7's pmsl.
Down to 30 chips and the big blind hit me straight away !!!! Won the hand and got upto 400 chips with another win and made the 1st break.
It's absolute madness on those tables m8. Best of luck B

Lately, I encounter more French players than I did the months before.

Hmmm - I am a German female with shaved armpits - go figure ...

I worked with the French for about 13 years and never encountered hairy armpits ...

... so much for urban legends ...

You will definitely not encounter French living in France playing on Pokerstars.

I am wondering though if the lack of French hairy armpits was male or female; also is it possible you could get me a job looking for hairy armpits rather than working in electronics??

I am in LaRochelle the last weekend of the month: I may bring Henri the Hoover

Did you know that Irish cleaning ladies refused to use Henry Hoovers after the Thierry Henri handed the ball to score the goal that took France to the last World Cup and sent Ireland crashing out?

Funny old world

Enjoy the hols Bog
