Poker mansion in Cebu, Philippines: Players wanted

Kumusta!!

We are 4 pro poker players who are renting a house in Cebu, Philippines, starting from tomorrow. We already have been here for 4 weeks now (arranging the house/maids/travel around). The house we are renting is a large 7br house with pool and a magnificient view over the Cebu hills (pics will follow in 1 or 2 days). Since we are 4 (maybe 5 soon), we are still looking for 1 or 2 extra members.




Why are we going there?
- Nice weather

- Nice beaches



- Low cost of living (~$1.5k expenses to live like a king here, which is our plan)
- Good base to start other Asian trips (Macau, HK, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, China, Thailand are all 'pretty' close)

What are we going to do?
- Play lots of poker
- Analyse together
- Travel/gamble to neighbouring countries
- Keeping ourselves healthy with sports and good food (cook)
- Party



Who are we looking for?
- NL100+ winners (or equivalent in MTT/PLO/...)
- Ready to move in asap
- Willing to party a lot
- Outgoing/fun/sportive/... personality

If you have any more questions feel free to ask here or PM.

Cheers

PS: Here is a picture of us 3 already, the 4th one is coming tomorrow.

Pics of the house will follow very soon, we move in 6 hours from now.
I wont bother googling stuff about PI girl, I'll just post a pic from last weeks party (friends I know who all study medicine school and me)



Main difference for me between Thai and PI is the fact that people here all speak pretty good English (understable for low class people, perfect for mid class+).

There are 2 card rooms here afaik but haven't bothered testing them yet cause I dont like live poker too much. I heard from a friend that one is pretty low stakes (nl100 equivalent is the highest table). The other one has up to NL400, but only on a few days. Action runs pretty deep normally though. In Manila there are more higher games. When I was there on a Tuesday they had NL800 games running, minimum 100bb deep. In weekends they even go higher.

We are renting the place for 1 year, but if you can only stay for 6 months or whatever, we can work something out.

Love Cebu and love Philippines. OP, I just want your group to be extremely careful. Flaunting money in a place like the Philippines isn't as safe as it is in the first world. I'm not saying things are inherently dangerous, but please watch your back.

Meh, it isn't that bad as long as you do it in nicer places/areas and to non-shady (non-poor) people. I've seen lots of show-offs who have no problems.
