If you don't know what black friday is, in the poker-related way, then you live under a rock.
For nearly a month, in reaction to the exile of US players from the mainstream poker sites of the world, I simply closed my poker programs and took to life's other pleasures. I'm in my last month of dental school; PS3 games are hawt right now; I've played a little Magic again with my old pals; and, of course, there's always gf, friends, and drinks. Enough to keep me busy.
Today, I longed for poker again. I logged onto the forums of DC, knowing with rough certainty that there were other sites out there where US players could turn for action. Sure enough, I found goldseraph's "tool time" video, which game a review of the sites currently available to Americans.
Following a series of links, I signed up for an account with Carbon Poker and made a deposit. I'm baaaaaack!!!
