Dear Poker Friends,

Firstly, let me introduce myself.

I am a professional chess player, former National Champion and currently ranked in the Top 5. During my chess career I had the opportunity to work with a close friend of mine who reached the Supernova status and he introduced me to poker a few months ago.

Therefore, intrigued, I joined Pokerstars.com last week (01/23/2012) and I am pleased to share with all of you my new poker experience!

Hi DivineGalaxy!

Welcome to the forum. Patience and thinking ahead, like you do playing chess, are two great qualities for a poker player to have.

Good luck at the tables.
