The US economy is a joke. You heard it here first.

Is this 'native' gpb? Meaning, no conversion rates anywhere (if your neteller or whatever account is in the same), and if you sit at tables, it shows the amounts in GBP? Or how does that work?

His winrate is still in dollars.

But his roll will increase in value relative to the $. So move up!

I've noticed. My friend got layed off yesterday and I figure I have a month left.

But if you guys can play for a living so can I. At least until my savings runs out.

I don't mind... by the time I'm a big time poker pro my bankroll will be huge, in dollars, and the dollar will have gone back to 1.50 [img]/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

No, but he will hopefully have more motivation to move up because of the bigger bankroll.

The account can be in sterling (or euros) but the tables still play in US dollars - so the money gets converted back and forth as you sit at a table and cash out. It is the same conversion rate for buying into a table and cashing out.
