Broke brothers grinding and partying in Cambodia

We have a unique story that we thought many people wouldn't be interested in or just thought we were retarded, but apparently people like to hear our stories... Here's a short overview of our past 9 months or so... We left England, I (Yazzx, 23) was a winning 25NL reg (28 tabling) and my bro (Izzit, 25) was a winning 10/16 NL reg taking shots at 25NL.... We left with decent sized bankrolls with the intention of grinding hard, but on our very first night in Cambodia we was introduced into to the party seen, 4 days later we got offered jobs at one of the late night bars. After that we spent about 6 months partying hard with very little poker.... Now we are at the worst spot we have ever been in.....

Now we are both playing 2 and 5NL, we promised to only party 2 days a week so should still have some cool story's (Sihanoukville, Cambodia is a ****ed up place), and we will track our poker results....

We are always happy to answer any questions or feedback, either one of us will post atleast daily....

Here are my graphs since we moved to Cambodia, my brother will post his next...




Threadsavers:

Spoiler:


We have around $350 between us... Mind on the grind.... GL all!

Re: Broke brothers grinding and partying in Cambodia

Sup guys here's my graphs since ive be in Cambodia.





We like to smoke weed + energy drinks, its a magical combination for loooong sessions...the reason my volume is less is due to me being a good roller and Yazz not helping me out so at the start of a session im sitting here for an hour or so rolling doobies...

Back in england we aimed to play 200k hand a month...

Re: Broke brothers grinding and partying in Cambodia

Gl to both of you. I read your stories in the Cambodia thread the other day and they were really funny/enjoyable. I'd like to spend some time travelling in Thailand/Cambodia some time this year, and think it's really cool you guys just picked up and left England. Looking forward to following this thread.

How long do you think $350 will last you (If that's really how much you have left)? Is the plan to return home if you aren't able to spin it up or get a job/get staked?

Thanks for the luck We've had less than $1k for months, just been living day by day... No idea how long it will last....I think we got atleast a few months in us.... We can make more then we spend just we party to much.... It's stopping (atleast slowing down) now and it's poker time!

If we go busto and it's time to go back to a mummy and find a job. Before we left, we gave my mum enough $$ to get us home at any time..

$120 is rent + bills, we are actually sharing room at the moment...... When we moved here he told us they would have a room opening in 2 days, but 2 days later that guy says he wants to stay another month..

Yep will defiantly meet up at some point. No worries with the drinks though....if you dont mind bar hopping then you can get 12-15 beers and 5-7 whiskey shots for $5

We both play on Stars

Re: Broke brothers grinding and partying in Cambodia

o we're done for today.... Internet today has been a disaster... getting dc every 5 mins, sometimes during big hands and losing blinds :/ had to run to a different internet company for a usb dongle thing... cost us $7 each for 2.5g each

So... pretty ****ty day, was ready to play a lot more than I did but I couldn't because because of the internet..



2+5nl fun

    Have you guys considered getting a rb deal elsewhere? Seems your games are more about volume than anything else, so it would make sense.

    It's also pretty good to party in low season (I actually preferred it). We live downtown but are always at serendipity beach.

    Thanks for the luck! We will try and get some pictures up but neither of us have a camera, Izzits iPhone 3gs was stolen and then my Galaxy broke and then stolen....

    Yeah we have tried other sites but we just love stars so much.... The software, the support, 10 min cashouts.... Can always get tables no matter what time of day.... But we are looking into it

    Maybe there are pictures to come of the house, most likely taken from laptop, got some stuff to do now so maybe later... Later I'll find a picture of our old setup in England when we turned $50 each into enough to live here ...


    Thanks everyone!
