      Ola !

      Soy frances, me llama Max y estoy viviendo en Toledo para todo el ano. Voy a apprender el espagnol pero ahora no puedo discutar como querria en espanol con vosotros :)

      I would like to know what's happening with the new spanish legislation of online poker

      Is it done already ?
      If not, when is it supposed to start ?
      I made some research on the internet, and I found that actually it wouldn't be possible to make a living with online poker in Spain anymore,
      can you give me more details (I heard about restrictions can you develop that) ?

      Every information might be useful though !

      Ah, and I would like to try playing at casino too, probably in Madrid, do you have one specific to advice ? I've just found "El casino Gran Madrid" on internet, is it allright for poker ?

      (I'm looking for low games, 1/2 - 2/4 max)


      Muchas gracias !

      Hi

      I'd like to help you but I'm not really aware about the law, but i can tell you that it is not still done..

      If it's defenitely going through, it's going to be a big shit for spanish players, that's for sure, because IMO our government has no idea about what they are dealing with.
      I think it's planned to start next january... But i guess we'll have to wait..

      About the casinos, I'm from Barcelona so i can't help you, but what i've read here is that there are two in Madrid, this one and "Torrelodones", full of fishes like every casino..

      Let's wait a guy who really knows about the law..

      Hi TigerK, nice to have you in the Spanish forums.

      The low is approved, but they are still releasing drafts with changes, so nothing is clear. Every week we have news with changes. It is supposed to start next January 1st, but the elections have been anticipated and we don´t know exactly when.

      As soon we know more details, we will publish them in the news sections. Also, you can find further info in our special subforum:

      I guess you can use Google translation without problems.

      If you have more question, do not hesitate to ask!

      BR, Edu.

      @Decemark: I think those 2 casinos you're talking about are actually just one : El gran casino de madrid, en Torrelodones

      I've been there last sunday, just to let you know that fuck yeah, the game was easy to beat.

      Yeah, good for you then :D

      You are right indeed, googling i've found out that there are two, Gran Casino de Madrid Torrelodones, and Casino Gran Madrid in Aranjuez :) .

      I've only been once in a casino, in Lloret, and although i busted 100€ in a MTT, i realized cash was easy checking it for a few minutes..i should go there more often..

      Thanks man!
