re: Poker & currency and exchange rates
hey. im from the UK too and yeh ur right the exchange rate has fallen alot. effectively this means that the money you win becomes of greater monetary value, but it is more expensive to purchase the chips in the first place. eg. u win $1000 at what used to be an exhange rate of £1 to $2, meaning that win was worth £500 to you, but now the ER is £1 to $1.50 ur win is worth £750 pounds. u see? obv works vice versa, ur purchase of chips becomes more expensive. hope this helps.
