Postby SWED » Thu Nov 29, 2007 6:51 pm

My name is Victor, im a swedish guy travelling south-east asia. In two weeks, im goin to singapore and looking forward to it!

I have some poker related questions to any of you who lives there. Is online poker lagal? (i have a sweet seat in a pretty big tournament) Can i find a poker table at some casino playing tournament and/or cashgames? If so, whats the normal stakes? Is there any other poker i town?

Im really looking forward to my Singaporevisit!

Maybe i'll se you around!

Hi Viktor

Online poker here is illegal per se. But no one will go out of there way to catch you. Just dont tell anyone you are playing

No casino here to play no limit tourneys or cash games. A couple of people here host ring games, perhaps you can join those

Have fun in singapore

online poker, like most forms of gambling is illegal in singapore.

Mike here is from Philippines and knows nothing. Police patrol the web and make thousands of arrests a day. I thus suggest you transfer that tourny seat under my name=)


Jokes aside, there is currently no casino in Singapore, and most south-east asian casinos do not host poker(asians prefer less mind stimulating games like roulette), so curb your enthusiasm on this trip. You're welcome to join in our home games if you want, just give mike aka suitedpairs29 a pm. Be warned though, he's just there to take your money...so bring lots of it=)

Ahhh thats bad!

Is it legal in Malaysia?? Maybe i go over the border to play it and then come back to Singapore!

Thanks for the invitation! What stakes are you playing in your home game? If im a rich man when i come back maybe i'll join you =)

Thanks!

we play 20/50 cent blinds with 100 dollar buy in.

Not sure about malaysia, but I'm thinking you won't get much action there either. I hear there's a poker tourny at Genting, but I can't confirm that.

i'm pretty sure the answer is no, unless you do it sneakily.

The better alternative really is to find someone here who will loan you the use of his computer.

Mike comes to mind=)
