Default How old are you? Where do you live? Best poker achievement?

I made this post about 6 months ago, and it had a very good response from the forum; you can find it here

Since the forum has grown big time since, I thought it would be a good idea to hear from all the present regulars to the forum.

***********

I'd like to know about some of the members in the forum.

How old are you? Birthday?
Where do you live?
Are you married? Girlfriend/Boyfriend? Children?
Occupation besides poker?
If studying, what and where?
Favorite movie?
Best poker acomplishment? How long been playing?
Feel free to add any other information or pictures about yourself you want to share.

Well, I know that this kind of information is so secret for some people, but it'll be nice to know some of you.

I'll give it a go:

I'm 30 (april 11th).

I live in San Francsico with my girlfriend and basset hound.

I play a lot of poker and will be full time in 10 more days. Besides that, I've been working on 2 screenplays.

I graduated with a BA in English from UC Berkeley in 2000.

My favorite movies are Bottlerocket, Goodfellas, Magnolia, Training Day, Welcome to the Dollhouse and some other stuff.

I've been playing poker for about 5 years - the past 2 years fairly seriously. I've had a lot of 4 digit online mtt scores, but nothing higher yet.

Im 18
I live in Tenafly, NJ, a suburb of NYC. I will be moving to NYC in two months though.
Single as of now
I am a student and will be attending NYU next year
My favorite movie is pulp fiction, with a lot of close seconds
My best poker accomplishment is my win in a PS 109+rebuy tourney. I have been playing on pokerstars for a year and a half.
I currently play most games on pokerstars including PLO and Stud H/L as well as 3/6 5/10 NLHE, 100-500 sngs, and 200$ HU. I love learning the game, and am looking for a good 2+2er to learn with by watching eachother etc.

I am also currently being backed.

I'm 20 (19th Jan)
Montreal, Quebec
GF of 2 years

I'm a full-time student (semester starting soon) and I play poker as a hobby, but I love the game. I'm in Computer Science, it'll be my first semester, I switched around in programs that I didn't really like. Major waste of time, but hopefully I'll enjoy Comp. science.

Here are some of my fave movies: The Usual Suspects, Godfather I and II, Terminator 2 (best action movie, period), Pulp Fiction, etc. (you know, the usual list of great movies)

Started playing online about a year ago. I got interested in poker watching WPT with friends, so I deposited 100$ in PP and went from there. In a few months I was playing 3/6 and NL100, until I went on tilt and nearly destroyed my roll. Took a break for a few weeks and restarted back from square one, now I'm playing NL100/200 and going strong. At least I'm more disciplined now, too bad I had to learn the hard way. I'm currently trying to improve my tournament game and have started playing the 10+1, 20+2 and 30+3 tourneys at Party. Impressive poker accomplishments soon to come, hopefully.

Here we go again. Even though I'm mostly a lurker, I post here every once in a while.

*21, and from MA.
*Currently have GF.
*No "real" job, since I'm a full time Student (entering senior year)
*Studying Management Information Systems, and Computer Science at WPI
*The Blues Brothers

My best poker accomplishment is moneying in the 2005 WSOP Main event (321st place) in my first major tournament. I've been playing seriously for ~1.5 years online, with numerous 4 digit cashes on Stars and Partypoker MTTs.

A picture of me at the 2005 WSOP is Here
