  1. Maybe some cash games, did most of my boxing day shopping online on the 24th, but going out still for a bit more.
  2. Using points causes a hit to your rakeback. If say you rake $200 but you cash in points worth $100, you are left with $100 rakeback x the 27 % rate, or $27 instead of $54. I think the rate is every point you cash in is worth $0.005.It won't cause you to owe money back, but the points could put you in negative, and then you won't get any until you are in a positive position again.
  3. Tuesday 10 pm to midnight on TSN 1.
  4. I got back $18 and play mostly rush poker as well.
  5. I prefer full tilt because you can get rakeback. It amounts to getting back a percentage of your fees. For rakeback, the link in my sig, raketherake.com has been fairly good for me, and offers a good monthly freeroll on top of the rakeback, which I Have final tabled once for 4 figures. Unfortunately pokerstars is one of the few sites that doesn't offer rakeback.
  6. GG friend, you deserve a better finish, and it'll come for you soon, I know it.
  7. I prefer the old look of the site from last year, but it's not bad on pokernews.
  8. Crazy to play that long. Here's hoping he doesn't lose too much in the later stages when he becomes a zombie.

  15. Being a fellow Canadian, I would recommend to use moneybookers. (www.moneybookers.com) They are basically like netteller, an online wallet that is accepted on every site I have been to. Seems to be universal, and no issues for me, although it has been about 3 years since I have had to deposit onto the internet in general, so can't comment on certain Visa/other cards working, but I believe you can also do bank transfers.If you are looking for a referral, I suggest the site in my sig. Great monthly freeroll for full tilt, and never had any problems with them.
  16. I would recommend the site in my sig. I've been using them for a while, and have enjoyed their monthly freeroll. It is 52.5k now, and half the players do not actually show up. Final tabled it once for about 3k. I've never had problems with the site, and have multiple accounts through them.
  17. In cash games maybe.GL to all playing tournies, ship something big, especially Negs.
  18. GL to anybody you end up staking.
  19. This is where it becomes such a problem. How do you define primary source of income. When you say substantial, that may mean more than your ft job, and it depends on the eye of the interpreter whether this would be primary. Revenue Canada could certainly consider it a primary source if you elevated your lifestyle from it, or if certainly you made more doing it than your job. However I have heard of few definitive cases, and everything seems to be still on a case by case basis. One thing to be careful of, I have talked to several different accountants, and several have said "you have a ful
  20. I would take this advice with a grain of salt. The number you called up is general enquiries, and poker winnings are an area which do not necessarily have concrete set in stone rules to say yes they are, or no they are not, if you meet this specific bullet point. I would not expect your average person at general enquiries to know the correct answer for you as to whether or not it is taxable. I wouldn't expect a number of accountants to know. I'm a CA myself, and have had this discussion with many acquaintances and heard various answers. I would suggest visiting a CA that is knowledgeable
  21. Good article. It really is such a vague subject still, and one where there is a lack of knowledge, because like you said, they would have to look at your specific case to make a decision. I myself have called up technical interpretations, and not really got much more info than this.I look forward to reading your future articles.
