Just how many online poker players are there in Buenos Aires right now??!
I went to dinner a few weeks back and met bunch of them, there were 14 of us in total I think. North Americans, a couple of Canadians, a few Scandies and a few Brits. On top of this several of the guys knew of several other full time players in Buenos Aires who weren't at the dinner.
Fairly amusing was the fact that I was comfortably the oldest there (at 32yrs!!) AND comfortably playing at the lowest stakes. At least I ran good at the credit-card roulette, in fact I think the highest stakes regular ended up losing and paying the 1000 pesos bill (5 big-blinds for him I think).
Nearly all of them have ended up here due to this thread over at twoplustwo.com.
We guestimated there are currently 30+ travelling online pro's here that we know of.
Interstingly RazboyNik posted a comment linking to the news that the Argy government is considering a UIGEA type ban on internet gambling which int heory may screw things up for future poker playing visitors. I spoke with several Argy citizens about the likelyhood of this law passing aand it's consequences and got the usual response of "LOL government, who takes any notice of them and their laws?!".
