    James Obst and Kerry Stead: poker sharks

    A little birdy told me that James Obst is making hay in the world of online poker:

    Extraordinary stuff for anyone, let alone a kid who is just barely 18.

    Was at Casino last night and picked up a copy of Australasian Bluff Magazine.

    Flicking through I had a look at the "top ten ranked online players in Australia.

    No 7: Handle: Andy McLeod

    Cool

    is cardplayer.com ..free
    .. this Caketin is full of little spiders and watermelon seeds.....

    ..Chess is all about fear and psychology

    ..Chess is like an exam..... you havent studied for

    ..If you're good at Chess it means you are very intelligent and could potentialy do great things
    ..... but that you might have wasted that playing way too much chess

    Cardplayer is a site ABOUT poker, with information about tournaments going on, player results and rankings, etc ... its not actually a site where you can play poker.

    Honestly, and you didn't see my name in there! How rude!
    P.S. Looks like the Doeberl Cup might be turning into my annual chess event, so chess is not forgotten!

    A certain Kerry Stead appears to have made the final table (sitting 4th in chips) in the $1100 HORSE event!

    Busted in 3rd for $15,190 (final table deals notwithstanding)

    Great job, Kerry. We all know that HORSE is the real game of champions.

    Perhaps the thread title needs to be adjusted [done-mod]

    Hey, I play on pokerstars.com too for playmoney. So does Hacche. Whats your account? And anyone else who plays, feel free to give me yours. We can organise a game or something.
