Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

ez: what'd the finnish guys look like? you can PM me if you want. i played with these two very LAGgy finnish guys that were both <25 (one was total maniac, other guy was fairly aggro as well and was always playing on his tablet) at naga when i was there back in february. would be funny if they're still there. pretty bad flat with the kings pre btw. i think the flop is an easy fold as well. your post was a good read as well, way better than k2dantes posts about eating peanut better or getting screwed out of 25 cents.

funny hand, there was a really bad cambodian fish who had something like 80% VPIP and 100% WTSD once he'd call preflop (like, he would literally never fold ever once he put money in the pot. i got 3 streets of value from him with 66 on 772x2r). i ended up getting into a preflop war with the finnish guy in a few hands over the fish where it would go, he'd raise, fish would call, i would 3bet to get HU with the fish, he 4bets, fish calls. after maybe his 2nd reraise vs me where i folded i give him kind of a dirty look and he shows me aces after it folds around. another hand maybe one orbit later fish limps, i raise AJo, scandi 3bets from blinds, fish calls, i 4bet, scandi ships 600$ or so, fish calls, i fold...scandis Q9s gets him felted vs QJ...

As for your girl's university, check this out.

so i wanted to do a little more research on this before i brought it up to her (i cant figure out what the sponsors do for one)

i just googled it and there is very little info which isnt surprising, i also made thread about it on a cambo forum but got zero responses, so i tried to go to the site and ask them directly through the contact us link but now the link doesnt work

The Human Capital Project is a very sound and legit project. However they currently only work with University of Management and Economics (UME), at Battambang and Kampong Cham.

Both are far away from Sihanoukville.

You can email the director if you want. He's an economics lecturer in Australia.

Basically it's personal equity finance. What that means is that it works kind of like a student loan, except that how much you pay back depends on how much you earn. If you don't get a job you pay nothing. If you get a regular job you'll pay a small amount. If you end up with a high paying job you'll end up paying back more than you loaned.

Basically, it's like staking someone. Investors are betting on the students' success.

This table is taken from the website:

Hypothetical cost of a degree = $1000

HTML Code:
<pre>Average Income/year     Repayment/year     Total repayment (10 years)

$0                                        $0                               $0
$500                                   $0                                $0
$1000                               $100                           $1000
$4000                               $400                          $4000
$10,000                           $1000                       $10,000</pre>

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Yes, the sponsors put up money. They are basically stakers. You don't have to sponsor her to help her write an email to the project though.

The sponsors and students don't know each other. The sponsors are mostly Australians who know the director in his capacity as an economist, although a few of them do spend some time in Phnom Penh each year. The only input they have if any is deciding which students to accept.

She can contact them without going to Kampong Cham, but as Wabby said they currently only take on students from those 2 universities, so if she wanted to get on the program she would have to go to one of those.

I don't really know any more about it than that, but I do know the director and he's spent a good chunk of his life teaching in Cambodia. He'd be happy to answer any of your questions.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

anyone remember the m3thie girl from like a month ago? when i was retard3d and gave her money to buy some before she went with me as long as she smoked it in the bathroom of the club and then she tried to sneak it into my room? well i saw her for only the 2nd time since then tonight, obv had to go with that reliable and not at all risky character again (genius)

if she wasnt a m3thie she would clearly be in my top 5, maybe even top 3, but im only willing to take the risk maybe once a month, i wouldnt ever if she wasnt so hot and didnt have such a great @ss

went out like 9 of the last 10 nights, i need a break but cant really not go out while ez is in town, he originally said he was gonna leave tomorrow but now he is saying it may be a few more days, and im already supposed to do something with shack girl on tuesday (her month in PP went by in like 6 days) so if i go out tomorrow.... i may have a problem, but its a fun problem to have

o and speaking of ez, i have a theory that he is having a fun time right now, and its quite a strong theory

he made an interesting decision tonight, one that i have contemplated making while here and passed on, and i gave him all the information i had on the situation before he made the decision so he must have thought it was a sound one (or he was just that drunk), now that he has done it i am sure i will in the future

it is up to him to share this though, i will ask him tomorrow (if he really does stay another day) and see if he wants to share or not

i did my best to talk him into going with a ladyboy, told him that he was wanting to experience new things and he hadnt tried that yet, it didnt work, i even tried to get him to have a 3some with the two "prettiest" ladyboys out here, but to no avail

tried to get him to go to chicken farm and he said if i went with he would go........ well played by him, even in a drunken state he still is quite a tough competitor

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Eh, it was an interesting decision. Went with some girl K2D thought was underage, though she's def 20, to the nightclub where there's a swimming pool. We both got near naked and went swimming. Apparently some fat girl drowned in there two months ago.

For the record, I wanted to go swimming last night but nobody wanted to join me. I found someone to come with me for a swim and that's that. Then we went to the hot tub. Then to the ice cream shop. Then to our various hotels. Twas an interesting and fun night.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

100% on 20? i still think i'd take the under

edit to go ahead and ask this to since u hung out with her, and saw near naked, and im paranoid since she is friends with some ladyboys, u also 100% not ladyboy? im pretty damn sure not but still always scared and u got a far better opinion on it than me

twas hot near naked?

i believe fat girl makes at least the third person thats drowned in that pool, as im pretty sure 2 doods have as well (one definitely has)


pming you my number so if u go stay at charlies u can call if u wanna go out tomorrow night, fwiw freelancers did close at 12 so glad we didnt go (m3thie came to dolphin from there)

pots, im lazy man, the guy said i could come by today or tuesday to upload them, but ez was here today and i thought it was our last day together so i had to go to lunch with him and then stop in the casino to see if any poker running, it wasnt, and ez said he stopped in again later at night and once again it wasnt running

i definitely plan on going tuesday, unless he cancels

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Thread needs more pics tbh, wheres shack girl dante?

My latest project: Met her at a fish massage thing (you couldn't make it up) that I stumbled too when drunk. Is a really nice girl, works as a hotel receptionist and even has a car. Unfortunately met her the night before I came back so didn't have sex with her but we talk on skype and we've agreed to meet up when I go back. (Second from left in second pic) Solid 9?

Was it utopia because if so you're right.

I spent a couple of hours in there, didn't seem all that.

Got yourself to LV yet?

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

I should note, that I really don't even start the scale until like 4 or 5 anyway, so for me to rate anything under a 4.5/4 they would have to be Susan Boyle ugly.

Likewise, I also never go above say an 8.5/9 unless we are talking super model/celebrity hot.

This means a huge majority of the chicks in the world are between 5-8 in my book. Maybe I should do the 1-10 scale the way everyone else does it, but it's just the way my mind works I guess.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

gotta preface this with id hit that, ive arguably hit worse while over here, and i think azns always look better in person than in pics.......

but a 9? i thought i overrated asian chicks but damn, from the pics id say in the 5.5-6.5 range, which means in person id probably say in the 6-7.5 range


so have to post about this morning, any time there is a morning story its very likely to be a bad thing

power goes out around 9am, first outtage since the 6 hour one from like 2 weeks ago, not a good time for it to go out as i cant sleep without fan to drowned out noise so basically no sleep last night

around 10 am i get a knock on my door and then the door is pushed open till the lil chain type stopper thing only lets it go a couple inches (i dont lock the door handle when inside because, well it would take awhile to explain and not important so) i hear cambodian girl say something and im like wrong room she says sorry and moves down to the next room where i hear the guy say the same thing, then the next room

10 minutes later she tries the room next to me again and the guy gets pretty angry saying dont open my door again, then my door opens a couple inches again and a guy who works here says come here sir after girl says ya this one, im pretty freaked out but go to the door......

its m3thie from last night in only a tshirt

im like uhhhh ummmmm hey????? she says she was with another guy downstairs but she doesnt like him and can she come up here with me

this girl is trouble, i take extra precautions when im with her because she is like the highest risk for jail or copscam i ever do out here, you can never trust m3thies, even though tbh if she hadnt mentioned she did it i would never have guessed she did it and seems to reasonably have it under control (for now)

im debating it in my head and tell her as long as she leaves her bag outside again and i can thoroughly search her she can come inside, she says ya no problem (this usually results in a 5 minute argument) and goes down to get her stuff from the guys room, if the power had been on i would have told her no so i could sleep, but i knew i wasnt gonna sleep anyways, and wasnt gonna give her any money either

so anyways i wait like 10 minutes and she never comes up, in this time i decide if there ever is a time im gonna get scammed its right now so i change my mind and go wait in the hotel lobby/bar for her, and she ends up coming out like 20 minutes later, so now me, the hotel chick i like, another hotel chick (who is philippino, has a great body, and is the sister of the girl i banged a few weeks ago) and this m3thie chick in a super short leather skirt looking like exactly the wh0re she is are hanging out around the bar..... awkward

she gets a beer for breakfast, and after she was with me last night found another guy at dolphin who happened to stay at the same hotel, and he gave her $50

in the end she wasnt trying to scam me, didnt even have her bag or any of heizenbergs blue stuff with her, but for a little bit there were some extreme warning bells going off in my head on this one

so as far as shack girl goes this means i didnt go to gym today, meaning i will tomorrow, meaning i wont have time to go by guys place tomorrow, meaning shack girls oobie pics have been put on delay again

unless ez is still around tomorrow night, if he is i will ask to borrow his cam and then take new ones that we can easily upload

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

K2D, I know it's hard man, but you'd really benefit from finding a better way of treating these chicks purely as an instrument for sex, and not as actual human beings that you have personal relationships with.

U shouldn't even know about shack girls mom, or any thing about her personal life, or any of them for that matter.

U shouldn't have meth addicted chicks coming up to your room announced, and asking to stay with you when they are currently in the employ of another john in the very same building (dude could be crazy, get angry, come upstairs start some **** with the two of you, the kind of **** you don't want started.)

I know this lifestyle feels cool and balla to you, and that's great man, enjoy it well it last by all means. But these girls don't live in a cool and balla world. The world they live in, isn't a world you want to get involved too deeply in, or really at all if you can. You've already started to get involved in it with some of them, but you should try and turn that around, not go deeper in.

I may have been over reacting the last time I talked to you like this in this thread, but if you continue to allow yourself to get personally involved in their world, sooner or later the odds are something bad will happen to you, I mean bad bad, like the **** will get really real.

Try and scale it back man. If you were in a bigger city it would be so much easier. If you were in Bangkok or Manila, you could go with a different girl every night, then you would have no cause to ever get to know any of them personally, they would just be a commodity to you.

I don't love referring to human beings as commodities, but that's essentially what it is, when you pay somebody for sex, that's essentially what they become, and you would do better for yourself, and your long term health and safety, if you thought of them more as commodities and less as human beings.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

hmm, tbh there was zero reason for m3thie to come to my room, we dont even get along that well, i try and keep her at a distance because she is a m3thie, and she actually is quite a huge biatch to me since i always make her leave her bag outside

she isnt one that im friends with or even really talk to, and i cant control if she randomly is staying at the other dudes place at the same hotel and goes knocking on every door to find me..... and i still have no clue why she even did that

i get what your saying for this situation how it could have been bad, believe me i didnt like it one bit, but it was totally out of my control, im honest on here, i talk to a lot of these girls a lot, this one isnt one i do though, i probably would if she wasnt a biatch, but she is so.... and thats why i dont go with her often


that said, i dont see anything wrong with getting to know shack girl or the honest one i said would be good for an arranged marriage or my fav one, i usually see them maybe once a week, at most twice a week, for like 2 hours and then they go on there way, not sure what the harm is in talking to them while they are here


this ASN had the broncos 49ers game on last night at 3amish and claimed it was live, think it was, pretty cool

they also show NFL network every once in awhile, i am REALLY hoping every sunday they show the hour and a half breakdown of the days games with deion and irvin and mariuchi, those guys can get annoying at times obviously but that show has by far the most hilights of any show and would be a great way to get my football fix in

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

if soccer ever started i might get more interested in it

not the time nor the place for me to go into either a soccer sucks or footballs awesome rant.... but what the hey thats never stopped me bef...... naw not gonna do it this time


run bad days online are just brutal, not a lot of money lost, but seeing complete morons win when they have 30% equity against you over and over and over and being out of 10 tourneys in a few hours is something im still gonna need to get used to again

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

so i was thinking earlier, im pretty sure my last 10 days have topped my first week in asia for the best week (ok lil over a week) of my life

4 days with my fav girl, shack girls great boobs, nice girl whose not as hot as the rest but fun to be around 2 nights, one day off, the "prettiest" girl at the beach scene, and then m3thie

all for a total of $180.......... thats money well spent imo, or i could have got 30 minutes in a VIP room at the rhino for $200 and maybe came in my pants if the girl grinded me hard enough on the lap dance

naw i think this was better

so went to victory hill with EZ tonight, at one point was talking to a girl who basically spoke no english at all, we had a great conversation, fun times

some pretty good looking girls there

probably would be worth it to spend a night or two there buying some lady drinks and collecting numbers

m3thie called me like 4 times today, as mentioned i consider her a risk and dont want to take that risk more than once a month, regret giving her my number should have just continued to go with her only when i saw her out

still have no clue at all what was up with this morning when she came and knocked on my door..... not a clue at all


there was a bbq/party at my hotel tonight, i was playing online so didnt attend, came down around 9 to head out with ez and see cutie hotel girl is drinking, she must weigh like 80 pounds so she had to be wasted by the time the night was over

if i was a more devious individual i would have stuck around and tried to make a move when she got drunk, doubt it would have even worked, but i dont even really wanna be this girls first anyways as shes a good girl whose never had a boyfriend and im a POS so.........

not sure if mentioned yet but she has been saying she wants a vacation and hinting at, or basically asking, for me to take her to siem reap

id love nothing more than to hang out with this girl for awhile, even if we didnt boom boom, but 20 hours on a bus there and back........ ugh i cant take that

ez leaves tomorrow, was fun going out with him, i didnt just do my usual finish up playing poker go walk to dolphin point and pick a girl and come home, actually went out and about some

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

first month with all extra travel and getting settled in and what not was about $2500

now that every thing has been paid for i think it should be around $800-$900 a month, can go cheaper if i need to by eating more pb&js and "going out" less often

basically:

250 on rent

27 on visas

43 on gym

150 on food

300-400 on "going out" (obviously exceeding that right now but will slow down soon, ya sure, totally will slow down soon no problem)

20 on miscellaneous ie phone cards, backup internet, transportation (i never go anywhere i cant walk except for the atm)

phones are extremely cheap, i bought my phone, a $5 sim card that came with some minutes, and put $2 more in minutes on it

so far ive used 100 texts and spend almost 3 hours on the phone, a few calls to the US even, and still have lots of time left it says, no clue how..... but ya thats cheap


so ez just comes stumbling drunk up to my room at 3:30am saying hey man lets go to victory hill man (ok he didnt say either man but i added them in for effect)

im relatively certain that place closes at 2am, i was told that by a girl tonight, and have been told that before, he claims 4, but he is completely wasted, once again i pushed for him to go to the chicken farm, i sure hope he does and lets us all know how it went

he asked for a girl at victory hill who he has been chatting with a lot the last 2 days number for me, she gave it to him, he then lost it, i would have gone and got it myself but he got it for me, she was cute, not the hottest in the place, but seemed to have a great/fun personality, may go back just to get that at some point

o ya when i saw him at 9 he said he wasnt gonna drink tonight, when we walked past the bbq at 9:02 he took up there offer for a free beer

anyways he told me quite an entertaining story, im not one to steal another mans story and pass it off as my own, so im just putting this here so he can read it and share it with ya'll, if he hasnt posted within a week (he is way behind in this trip report thread) i will then tell you the 2nd hand drunk as fook version he just told me

And are you up or down. You've been playing what you have described as super soft games. Are you profitable yet?

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

How much did you have saved up before you went out there & how much on avg do you hope to make a month?

Guess the latter is pretty difficult to answer as you're an MTT player.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

How much of the $2500 was airfare from NV? Did you just book one way or do you have a return ticket? So you left Vegas with like 7k?

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Dante let me warn you pal that you shouldn't mess around with too many of these girls, they become emotionally attached and when they realise what you're doing, eventually one of them is gonna lose it with with ya. You see it as a bit of fun but these girls are probably falling love and see it as a way out of the misery they live in.

Let me tell you a story, I met a girl there who was pretty hot, she stayed at my hotel with me for a few nights but I soon realised, for all her good looks she was also f*cking mental, and if I as much as looked at another girl would become hysterical & claim me to be a "butterfly". (Seems a favourite term of cambo girls) Anyway so I threw her out and a couple of days later saw her in the club I'd met her in again. She became hysterical again and kept putting her arms around me and the security in there wouldn't do anything so I had to physically remove them off me, quite forcefully. I saw her again a day or so later and she pointed out a few tiny marks on her arms and was threatening to go to the police about it unless I saw her again.

Anyway I've been home for 5 weeks now and some how this crazy b*tch has got hold of my number! and has called & woke me up at 4am the last few nights. I think she must have got it off another club reg I met in there. Problem is I don't wanna write her off completely because if I go back there, for all her faults she's an absolute animal in bed but meh.

But yeah moral of the story is be careful around these girls, I could quite easily see you getting stabbed or smth.
