I won't even comment on all the other stuff you've said so far as it's been covered by most everybody here lol.

But this link should explain to you why what you did is incorrect and how it makes you look like or allows you to do some angling (regardless if you are or not).

Admittedly it's hard to read your rage-fueled drivel.

I'm not opening up any debate about whether you are right or wrong, you are obviously wrong.

And I've seen these physical raise (verbal call) garbage reversed and the user forfeit the hand when cards were examined and they were obviously angling, which of course, is the sole decision of the room.

So no, physical raise does not always trump the verbal call.

What stakes was Naga running? Last I played, the 2/5/10 had disappeared and there was only 1/2nl. Good memories of that place. Wish the games ran 24h. Happy you were only in my games online and not live at Naga/RK Great photos btw.

So Warmage now confirmed angle shooting POS?

He's like the Alec Torrelli of Cambodia but with a lot more ego and a less poker skills.

Yea, just two tables of uncapped 1/2 most nights. 2/5 got going only 2-3 times a month. But for a short strech there were some Chinese and Indian guys in town buying in for 1k+

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

After much reflection and advice from PT, this will be my final post. It's simply not worth it to keep getting attacked/threatened both live and online from the trolls. Will stop following this thread for a while too.

For the mother f***ers who have been needling me about short-stacking, hit-and-running, not willing to get into big pots, don't know how to play a big stack, not willing to tip, the picture below speaks for itself.



Started: $100
Cashed out: $1693 (+$1593)
Peaked: $2000+

- For the big pots ($1K and above) I won, I tipped the dealers $5 each
- Was involved in two 4-figure pots where I had a set and made the correct fold (In one pot, one guy had a higher set. In the second pot, one guy had a flush). Standard spots? Try making those folds yourself in my spot, bitches
- Mike, the room owner, asked me to rest up early instead of continuing to play since I was coughing and sneezing. Covering up for a hit-and-run? Go f*** yourself. I declared to Mike and the rest of the table that I am here to play for all my chips, so don't f*** around with me.

For the trolls, hold on while I suck on my pina colada in my "3-dollar a night dorm". By the way, it's 6 dollar/night; it's safe, secure and listed as one of the top dorms on Tripadvisor.

So there will be a new log in name soon, changing the name from WarMage87 to what CryBabyFool1 or AngleShooter? He will continue to back for all of us to read his non-sense, so what will be his new screen name anyway?

And after that you call others low life ...

When you were not posting about poker you made some interesting posts.

WarMage you take yourself way too seriously mate, you will probably even feel triggered by me saying this. Realize that not everyone is out to get you, the reason some guys seem to be hating on you is because you spew defensive "ego" driven comments to show how enlightened/good at poker you are or whatever. Then whenever someone criticizes you, you yell hate and ask for hu ego matches. Take a step back and realize how silly it is. Gl out there bro beans
+1 on that, you are playing 1/3 live in Cambodia for a living. I'm not sure you can play any lower than that.

WarMage87, you should consider Vlogging, like Andrew Neeme/Doug Polk. Would be great to hear your strategy insight.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

what a shame. i liked WM's posts too, as it is totally different from the normal ones in this thread. For what it's worth, I like reading your thoughts and I actually think you are a decent player with a decent winrate. Some of your poker strategies/mindset are a little questionable and possibly not optimal for your winrate but who am I to judge.

Anyway, I admire your bravery to quit the normal 9-5 working life and pursue a passion of poker and travel. And you seem to be a winning player too. Nitting up in life is sometimes necessary when you are grinding low stakes to conserve funds, so kudos to you for being able to plan ahead. Sometimes you gotta save as much money as you can in order to survive and keep going. Not many people can do the poker/travel job, so my hats off to you.

Many haters out there but hey, haters will hate, potatoes will potate.
Feel free to continue posting in this thread WM, I for one will be looking forward to reading it.
