    Hi guys,

    I'm a man, 30 years old and from Belgium. As most of you on this forum, I'm a fan of Poker. I'm playing the game since 2006. My preferred games are Texas Hold'em No Limit (what did you expect ? :) ), Kansas City Lowball, California Lowball and Triple Draw. From time to time I also live a live Draw game or an online Razz game.

    I mostly play low stakes (online and live). And at these stakes, I'm performing well. But since Poker is a passion among others, I don't want to play higher limits or more. In fact, I reduced my online game volume drastically. I almost only play live now and still low stakes (in local clubs, in casino - self deal tourneys, ...).

    Also I had the chance to come In the states 3 times (always California - Nevada - Arizona) and always I had a great time playing a small tourney in Vegas.

    I'm mainly a tourney player but I also like from time to time to have a small cash game (NL10) with some friends.

    The reason I subscribed on this site is to complete a 500 chips set I started. Now this set is done. :)

    Apart from Poker, my other passions are soccer (watching and playing), motorsport (I run in karting and watch Nascar and endurance series), photography, cinema (western is my favourite genre) and travelling (esp. to the States).

    See you on the forum !

    Thank you.

    I've some entry-level series among which the nicest one is a set of Dunes Commemoratives that I bought at Spinettis during a Vegas trip. The boss of this shop was very sympathic.

    For the rest, I placed an order MrChip for a tourney set of Boracay 2006 Main Event (SunFly ceramics) with the customization you can imagine. They'll be shipped soon.

    I've built a set of casino chips, Paulson, in mold THC and... Hotstamped. This set is for 10 players in NL10.

    - 150 Pink Cherry (Casino from Sweden) to be used as 5c
    - 100 x 25c Lakeshore Inn Resort & Country Club (California)
    - 100 x 50c Fitzegarld's (Reno)
    - 100 x $1 Properity I Cruises (Key West, Florida)
    - 40 x $5 The Post (San José, California)
    - 10 x $25 Silver Star (Las Vegas)
    - 1 custom dealer button St Jo Frontier Casino, MO

    Thanks.
    I'll use the Pink Cherry as 5c. So in a first stage, I don't plan to use 10c chips.
    I'll see later if a nice opportunity pops-up. :)
