    Thanks for the information Mr. Holalkere Venkatesh. Your reply is most welcome and it's quite interesting. I have one question, how do I type in kannada ? I mean should I download any fonts ? could you please give more details ?

    Thank you...

    Well, the questions were really nice. But the event was not managed well. The person who read out the answer was not audible enough. People didn't care about the auditorium and were wandering all around. This was very disturbing and nobody even cared about. I saw an American woman who was quite annoyed by the people and she left the program in the middle. Is this the way people behave after coming to US ? Anyway, the Mic system was also pretty poor. Did I say the skit in the end was funny ? About food, the quantity was very less !!
    Only good thing about this event was seeing other kannada people and thanks to those who did these websites...

    The table part you have to play a lot more hands, playing them very aggressively. There is no place to hide and wait for a pair of aces.
    Each pool is a struggle. You need to diversify your game if you want to be successful. This does not mean that you have come with each hand, but remember to lower your standards a little bit about starting hands. Tip Two: Defend His blinds. Playing "full ring" you can afford to temper its dark. In a shorthanded game, you must show that your blinds are easy prey that is not afraid to see the big raise. Heavily check that your big or small blind is not free money.
