Mine is the same as my name on here. It's just a name i've been using for years on all sorts of internet things.

P.S. My last name is Jones as well. :)

Going AFK so I can use the phone...
If that matters to anyone, you have to remember that I, too, am parinoid...

Well, my real name is Jochen... which no one can pronounce. Since my initial is J, my nickname became Jay. And since I don't talk much (and am a bit of a Kevin Smith fan), it became Silent Jay. And since that's usually taken when I register somewhere, I usually add my year of birth... resulting in my username being "SilentJay76" (or something close to it) almost everywhere... except at Pacific, where it's Jay876 because they're still stuck in the 8-characters-max DOS era... and Jay76 was already taken... so I added the 8 for August. ;)

Virtual...because all of my poker playing takes place online.

Fish...because of the poker connotations.

On FT you can even have a picture of fish :)

Don't really have a "poker name" yet - the one I use is a bit presumptuous so I'm keeping that one a secret, but I haven't been dubbed anything yet. Saw a guy called "Rivermaker" on TV once. That was cool until he was knocked out by the River lol

Arahel_jazz has been my alter ego on the Internet for years, going back to some of the original Yahoo message boards. The first part is a sonic mismash of my real initials aRAheL, the second part is just the fact that I love Jazz music (and play it fairly poorly from time to time).

I like it because it is easily unique in the Internet and can usually sign up on any site without duplication.

My username for poker is always MSword. Its my name, Michael Sword. However, funny little people think im either Ms.Word and a female or that I am in fact a computer program.

My online username (since everyone else is doing theres) is Mugetsu and was pilfered from the old PS2 game 'The Bouncer'. Terrible game but oh so funny!

I live in northern Colorado with some of the world's most beautiful wilderness right at my doorstep. When I'm not playing poker, you can find me with fly rod in hand searching for rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout along the Cache La Poudre River.

GORP - Cache la Poudre River - Colorado

Since the "Poudre" (as we call it) is designated as a "Wild and Scenic River", and since I've seen so many "Wild" rivers in poker, it seemed a natural choice for a screen name.

My name started on the baseball field. Trent is a very good baseball player and everyone would always say, "who is that kid"? I would say, "his name is Trent and he is mine". :) No one knew my name then so I was always called Trent's Mom.

The extra m came when I opened 2 accounts on paradise poker. Since the account with the extra m had money in it I told them to cancell the other.

I used to use "CobraJack" because it's car I drove and my name.

I now use "ItsOk2Fold" and "Ok4u2Fold" and "FoldUDonkey". I like these names because they remind me that when you know you're beat "it's ok to fold". It also helps other players to let go of their cards when I make a good bluff.:D
