U.S. POKER REFUGEES HEADED TO MEXICO


Would you like to know more about U.S. Poker Refugees heading to Mexico?


Here are few great sites and resources that we found.  So for all you online poker players we invite you to come on down to Mexico and have a FISH TACO, MARGARITA and enjoy hassle free ONLINE POKER PLAYING.


“As we all know, Black Friday changed everything for online gambling. The U.S. Government seized domains for many sites and made playing in the U.S. impossible. Hundreds of professional players have now left the states for Costa Rica, Canada and Mexico.  At Baja123, we understand that online players have special needs that weekend travelers and retirees don’t. The number one issue facing players living in Mexico is the amount of time it can take to get a phone line installed. Without an internet connection, you are not in the game, and this can cost you a ton in winnings.”  



“There are many reasons people move to Mexico, but I’m sure that ninety percent of them move here as part of a retirement plan. Most of the gringos I’ve seen here in our first week are older than us. But I just discovered that there is another group of people moving to Mexico, and they are mostly men in their 20’s and 30’s – online poker players!


In case you weren’t paying attention to the world of poker, here’s a brief overview of the insanity that invaded the United States in April of 2011.” http://vagabondians.com/mexico-us-and-the-poker-refugees/



Finding a Place to Stay


If you're looking to relocate to Tijuana, there are numerous ways to go about finding a place to stay. A quick online search reveals dozens of agencies and hundreds of classified ads, so there is no shortage of options; however, Wheeler opted to go a different route. Instead of going through a third party, Wheeler decided to take a trip across the border and find a place the old-fashioned way, by walking around.


"To be honest, the easiest way to find a place is to pick an area you want to live, and then just drive/walk around and look for "for rent" signs, or walk into local condos and talk to the managers," Wheeler said. "A lot of people have used agencies or services such as Baja123, but you are likely to either pay slightly more each month or pay them a finders fee up front. To some it is well worth it. For me, I liked the surprise of what I might find on my own."


“Online Poker Banned In U.S.” was a wakeup call for everyone in the industry and thousands of professional and semi pro players left the country looking for a safe and secure place to live and work. Overnight places like Rosarito Beach in Baja and San Jose in Costa Rica became ground zero for the Poker Expat movement as players discovered that living abroad was in fact an excellent choice that gave them a relaxing lifestyle and a higher standard of living.
