Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

Sub'd, GL OP

I thought I was young moving to Bangkok at 23, that was 6 years ago now. Best thing I ever did.

I hope I'll be able to say the same in a couple of years

Thanks for the suggestion, looks great especially since I play badminton, squash & tennis too, it is however a 20m drive from my current place, will try to see if there's a nice gym somewhere closer to me.

So I met up with the girl last Friday for the 3rd time this week, showed up almost an hour late for the 3rd time also, plus didn't recognise her from ~30 feet in front of her co-workers (bad eyes). woops. She ended up staying at my place anyway so yay me.

As for pics, doubt she'll qualify for more than a 7 so not too interesting, instead some random thai pics I came across on fb, better than nothing.

Spoiler:


Someone on a dutch forum where I had a pgc thread last year asked about my brm, so I'll also post what it currently looks like on here.

Regular speed fo's/.eu red's/PSKO turbo's - 200 BI's
6-max Turbo's / turbo KO's - 250 BI's
Turbo's/hypers - 300BI +

As for rebuys the same brm goes, will just guess the ABI there depending on the structure.

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

Considering these are her best pictures, she does not quality for a 7. She's average, average is 5. You have to imagine her face from the front as she's using her best angles.
That is still 3 points above what grinders sleep/get married with. I'd say there isnt more than 25 guys in Thailand with girls above 6

that's the average girl the guys here get with/marry.

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

I realise this is just banter and i am sorry to be such a boring stickler for political correctness but...

Reducing anyone, girl or guy to their looks and assigning scores is demeaning. Doing so behind their back in a public forum is a breach of their privacy. Doing it specifically to women on a public forum is definitely sexist.

I talked like this when I was 18 (and older tbh!) but I had the good fortune for that to be before the days of facebook and online forums so I can't now have my naively misogynist/racist/homophobic younger self hauled over the coals for the rest of my life.

More important than concerns over our own reputations is this is the premier poker forum on the internet, there are a lot of female members and it isn't fair on them or good for 2+2to have even slightly sexist stuff on here. As a MAWG I've found 2+2 to be a kind and welcoming community - I would hope that to be the same for all fellow players who come here regardless of their sex, colour or sexual orientation.

Over the years I've learned from friends and relatives what it is like to be subjected to sexism, racism and homophobia on a daily basis and I've resolved to be more aware of my privilege and prejudices and avoid lazy/unthinking use of hurtful language. I'm not perfect and I don't claim to be but I am trying!

I'm not accusing any of you of being totally out of order - I know it is just friendly banter to us. However it can upset people and can create an atmosphere in which harsher, more hurtful views can be more easily expressed and it can put off contributions from female players.

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

Glad to know I'm already doing above average Left to wonder tho how many of the 25 would be (ex) prostitutes

Personally I find her attractive , otherwise I obviously wouldn't spend time with her, altho she's fun to be with (also great ass, which is a nice +). Can definitely see how others would think differently.

@ragequit
First of all, are you dutch?

Second, I personally don't see the big deal. I post a perfectly normal picture of a girl (not demeaning/humiliating whatsoever), which comes from her fb so it's not like a private thing.
If you're saying it's sexist for guys to talk about a girls appearance then you're taking the whole PC thing way too far. Personally I wouldn't take any offence If people were judging me by my looks, even if I didn't know about it or it was negative, people should be free to express their opinions, especially on a public forum. Also, it's not like girls don't do this all the time, ever seen those 'farang' facebook pages? they're like forums purely made on judging us, however when girls do it suddenly it's way more normal since you can't be sexist towards guys right?

You could raise a point that I shouldn't post her picture in the first place, then again I have nothing to be ashamed of and I know it won't hurt her / have a negative influence on her in any way.

Back to poker

Will try and get an early night tonight and start grinding around 6am, hopefully I can pick up some rungood this week and start climbing back up.

I think it's very unattractive to be talking like OP and fightrolling. Like you just come across as massive back stabbing suck out weasel. Have a bit of a respect for yourselves and others mate.

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

a 5/10 can be attractive with a nice personality/attitude and dress/make up style. She can even pass for a 7 on good days. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Ragequit 100% confirmed virgin white knight.

Making fun of people based on their appearence is a very common thai thing.

ragequit how obese is your woman?

Yep, got on tinder before I left last week, I currently pay 15k baht for a month in a hotel.
Still looking for an apartment, hoping to find one before the 10th next month.
Lived in a house with 2 other poker players on Malta, had a great time and I feel like it's definitely something every poker player should try. However now that I'm in thailand I prefer the privacy a bit more so I will be living on my own for now.

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

Fighting troll:

Look if you think I'm some sort of prudish PC nit you couldn't be more wrong (ok, i am a nit). I worked as a bouncer for 5 years when I was young and oh my god am I glad none of the dumbass conversations I had with colleagues and regulars have been preserved forever on the internet!

Frankly I'm horrified by some of the stuff I said back in the day. I hope to god I never properly upset or scared anyone but I'm sad to admit I really have no idea. At the time, I was too selfish and self centred and concerned about looking tough and being funny to give a **** about what anyone else was feeling. I also used to confuse running other people down with being confident in myself. It is the mistake all bullies make and I'm glad I've largely grown out of it.

Point is you live and learn and I was just trying to do you guys a solid by gently giving you the benefit of stuff I learned (slowly) in the last 20 years. Take it or leave it but there's no need to get all defensive about it - that's something else scared little bully boys do - lash out at any criticism because their egos are too fragile to listen and take it onboard.

It would help you in poker and life in general to be more empathetic and more easily put yourself in others' shoes.

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

OP

No I'm not Dutch, I'm English. This isn't a national cultural thing though - it is the same the world over.

Now, I wasn't trying to upset you and I thought my original post was pretty gentle. I also didn't and don't mean to sound patronising. I just see you displaying a similar attitude to me when I was your age and I thought offering my experience in life to you on this subject would be potentially useful. Certainly more useful than anything I have to say about tournament poker! I'm hear to learn from your experience on that front.

I used to feel like feminism was BS and just a load of whinging women trying to make us guys feel **** about ourselves. That really isn't the case in reality though and it took me a while to understand that. Strangely it was only when I started listening properly to the women I know that I began to understand.

Also it is harmful to yourself to seek approval for your choices of partner from other people, particularly random dudes on the internet! Love is an even harder game than poker and it isn't made any easier by letting others set your success criteria for you.

Of course if you're anything like I was at your age you can't be told stuff ny boring old gits like me so you'll learn this in your own way and in your own time. Just know I said all this stuff to try and help - not upset or annoy.

Personally I would rather hear more about the poker so let's get back to that...

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

Don't feel bad @Ragequit99, it's just a maturity thing. Eventually OP will realize it but trying to convince an adolescent is another matter entirely.

@OP, would you be willing to have a conversation with this girl to her face that she's completely average, you rate her a 5, and a 7 on her possible best day? If not, don't do it behind her back either. Looks aren't everything as you will eventually realize.

Little background, i'm a 31 year old guy that's been married 10 years to a gal that'll knock your socks off. Looks have nothing to do with how we feel about each other.

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

Let me derail the entire thread into SJW drivel and then write a massive paragraph about why I'm correct, ending it with a sentence about how we should get the thread back on track.

ICWUDT.

I wish you'd "Ragequit".

DUCWIDT?

No derail intended just didn't want to curtly say "STFU you ignorant kids!"

I expected some level of flaming and was trying to put my point across clearly and gently to minimize the backlash.

Have you read the thread? OP never rated his girl with number. He said she's looking fine for him and that he like her personality.

Only one rating girl with number here is FightTrolling.

Re: 18 year old making $100k in Thailand

Ragequit,
Appreciate that you're trying to help, however I'll stick to my point that I'm not being disrespectful to women in any way whatsoever. Also don't see where you're coming from about the 'seeking approval', there are very few questions i wouldn't want to answer itt, and since a couple of 2+2ers asked for pics i shared them because I didn't see the harm in it.

@BAE like LonelyBox said, I never said I believe she's a 5, only stated that I expected most people wouldn't rate her higher than a 7. Once again, I wouldn't spend time with her if i didn't think she was cute/attractive, which is why I had no reason to not share the pics. Also i clearly stated myself that looks aren't everything too, however none of us would like to be with a girl we don't feel attracted to.

Enfin, don't have anything else to say on the matter. It's 5am here so I'll go out and grab some food and then start grinding soon, so let's go back to the poker.
