To top it all off I didn't play with a single famous person.
I stick to the popular sites now...
Yea, dude, it's really sad that, because Hollywood USED to be a great place, with forums and fun and participation that rivaled CC here (if CC had it's own pokerroom). But Nov 2006 and the UIGEA really bit them. They lost most of the fun people. If they had just decided to stick to their guns and not "fold" to the US govt, like Tilt and Stars did, then I think they could have become one of the big ones! But, alas, bad management decisions, lead to shrivelling and decay.....of course THESE days that's much more common in all sectors of the economy!
