Tax Free Poker at PokerStars.DK

Poker players from Denmark and Greenland are now able to take part in tax free poker at PokerStars, which has been approved and licensed by the Danish Gambling Authority. Online poker has grown rapidly in recent years and is the game of choice for many players now over live games and tournaments, especially when you factor in the tax implications for residents of Denmark and other countries that have very high taxes for any winnings from live poker events.

PokerStars has cemented its position as the world's largest online poker site, dwarfing the competition and bigger than its next ten competitors combined. not only will players find the greatest selections of cash games and tournaments but PokerStars has a very transparent policy when it comes to security and the segregation of players funds, letting players rest easy that their money on deposit is always safe and secure.

Unlike some sites that only have traffic at the NLHE tables, PokerStars has action to choose from at all major poker variants, including Omaha, Stud, HORSE, Razz, and more. Tournaments also run regularly in many different formats, giving players the largest game selection possible in the online poker world, ranging from microstakes to the highest stakes played online.

PokerStars is also the sponsor of the European Poker Tour as well as numerous other live series around the world, offering players the chance to win their trip packages online for the poker trip of a lifetime. Satellites and FPP freerolls see some lucky and skilled players win a trip to tournaments around the world for an investment of just a few dollars, including tournaments such as the World Series of Poker Main Event.

PokerStars also sponsors numerous top pros including Daniel Negreanu, Joe Hachem, and Jonathan Duhamel. Serving as the online poker home for many top pros, PokerStars is your best shot at playing online with many of your poker heroes. The popular VIP rewards program also gives frequent players the chance to cash in on their play, with cash bonuses, merchandise, tournament tickets, and even trips to live events such as EPT tournaments or PCA Bahamas packages up for grabs for players that play a ton of poker and make PokerStars their online site of choice.

All Danish and Greenlandic players who convert to PokerStars.DK and verify their CPR details before the 31st of January 2012, will receive a $10 credit to their account as a thank you credit.

Ahh, Procrastination, My Good Old Friend...

With just three days to go before making my now annual pilgrimage out to the WSOP, things are pretty much par for the course.

Every year I swear I'm going to wrap up assorted work and house projects and go out to Vegas with a clean slate and a spring in my step.

Except somehow or other I get entangled in massive projects, spend a ridiculous amount of money, and only get 75% done before leaving, exhausted and razzled, to go spend three weeks working insanely long days and eating bad food at the Poker Kitchen at the Rio.

Pretty much exactly on track again this year, as now I'm scrambling to get out kitchen put back together and at least somewhat functional before leaving, although it's looking like a coin flip at best for that to happen.

So what have I been doing for the last six hours, with the clock ticking? Yep, that's right, watching Season 1 of Game of Thrones in its entirety again.

I rock...

Five Years? Really?

Once again I'll be making the jaunt out to the WSOP Main Event this summer, for what is somehow the 5th consecutive year. Not really sure how that happened as it seems like just a few years ago that I was going out for the first time but yeah, five years. Wow.

The last few months have been really, really busy, especially on the work front. I spent about a month and a half in Europe during March and April, which was a combination of work (trips to Vienna and Spain for bwin work) and pleasure (vacation with my wife in Ireland and Malta).

We're still on track to make the move to Malta in August, so I've also been desperately trying to get our house in presentable shape to list it for sale at the end of July when I get back home from the WSOP.

After the WSOP the next work trip is GSOP Live Manchester, then WPT Paris not long after that. I should also finally be in a spot soon to do some reporting work solely for the tptk site at some events, which I'm excited about.

I've also been finally kicking the dust off some old projects as well, so it's been a pretty busy few months of late for me, with no break in sight until we finally get settled in Malta.

Full Tilt, FTW!

Many thanks to the kind powers that be at Full Tilt for selecting my chat cloud entry as the winner, with the result being 5,000 FTP points (that I parlayed into a $33 Mini FTOPS entry, which I immediately donked away brilliantly) as well as a $100 freeroll on Friday, to which the two folks who still read this might be interested in:

Tournament #224279571 (03.11.11 20:00 ET) - $100 prize pool

I am actually quasi-blogging a bit more over at tptk, but have been completely hammered of late with work, and about to hop over to Europe for a month and a half to cover WPT Vienna, WPT Bratislava, GSOP Live Seville, and maybe the Irish Open. Busy times, busy times...
