Katie “hotjenny314” Dozier In our previous installment of Online Chat, we introduced you to Katie "katie75013" Stone, a member of The Grindettes — four women with unique backgrounds who play poker for a living — who relocated to Rosarito, Mexico to play online poker.

Mexico has the weather and cost of living going for it. Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal have a North American culture and modern conveniences in their favour ... also easier access to Europe & Vegas if you want to throw that in.

Australia may be a cool country ... but it is so off the beaten paths that it is less "relocating to Australia" and more "banished to Australia" considering the cost of air travel in and out of Australia. The geographic reality of Australia means it will never be in first or second place when good U.S. players are forced by the DOJ to relocate from the current online Poker Prohibition in the U.S.
