For those who don't know, this Friday 1/31/2014 is Chinese New Year, and it'll be a very a 新年快乐 for poker players who hit the tables, imo.
Gambling on and around Chinese New Year (the celebration lasts for two weeks or more, depending) is sort of a tradition; if you get lucky during the Chinese New Year holidays, it sets the tone for the rest of the year, it is believed.
Plus people will have their hong boa (洪保) money to spend. So my strategy advice is to hit the tables starting this Friday. :cool: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_New_Year
