5 of us atm, few guys paying a little less than the 25k and a couple of us paying a little more because some of the rooms are quite signnificantly better than others. My bedroom is probably bigger in terms of square footage than my previous 1 bedroom apartment :')

Re: 2019 - BALLZ TO THE WALL

Recent results, first 63k hands are at 2/4/8 on PKA and last 14.5k hands are on 5/10/20 PM.



Just been told today that our club is going to start imposing a 20% fee on winning days going forward... Pretty unhappy with that because I've paid 18k rake in the last 15k hands as it is, and 20% fee on top is just taking the piss. So looks like that club is gg and will be searching for the next best option going forward tomorrow.

Trip Report -BKK Trip & Songkran

Since I'm mostly twiddling my thumbs today now that I can't play, figured I may as well update ya'll on what I've been doing non-poker related.

Few weeks back I head to BKK to visit a friend who's passing through Asia. One of my best mates from way back in high school. Anyway, I arrive in Khaosan road thinking that was the GTO BKK place to be, but at 5pm it was ***** dead and **** and so I asked my room mates where you're actually supposed to go to party in BKK? Apparently soi cowboy and nana plaza are the nuts I was told so we tuktuk from Khaosan to soi cowboy (500 baht gg).

I should mention at this point my dick's been burning everytime I piss for the past week, the doctor advised me to strictly not drink any alcohol or spicy food as that'd cause it to burn more. But I can't not sink beers with me mate so decide I'm just going to tank the pain of urinating all night. I've also got a pretty mad case of pink eye at this point, I guess that was a result of whatever infection I had - I'm saying it was a UTI but the doctor seemed to think Chlamydia but obv he's wrong so w/e. Anyway, so my cock hurts when I piss and my eyes are constantly watering/blurry/bloodshot, but no better time to be sinking piss IMO.

Get to soi cowboy at like 8pm and it's pretty ***** grim. It's like a **** version of Pattaya. Old and average girls mostly. The first bar we go into is a Gogo and we're literally the only people there. Me and my mate. Who are the 4 girls on stage dancing for exactly? :') We actually got snapped up by one of the hosts outside and dragged inside. And not before long we had 4 girls surrounding us asking for drinks, my mate was having none of it, but i'm obv a pushover and get this girl a drink. This girl is prob mid thirties and is suuuper touchy feely, she gets on my lap and pulls her tits out of her dress and gets my hands and attached them to her tits in front of the 3 other girls who are kind of just standing around chatting to me/my mate. TBF, she had ***** incredible tits, but I just felt a little violated that I'd essentially been dragged into a dark, sad, empty Gogo bar and straddled by some old bar girl BEFORE MY BEER HAD EVEN ARRIVED. The girl was practically begging for it and told me I could freeroll after work? Needless to say, we hauled ass out of there pretty quickly after that beer - I told her I would definitely come pick her up after work for that freeroll. lol.

Have a few more beers at soi cowboy, my mate wants to see a ping pong show so we go in and I was actually sort of surprised that this show was halfway decent. Actually somewhat entertaining. The girl at the end shot darts out of her pussy up at balloons on the roof and I thought it was the most brilliant thing ever.

We decide to get some food then go to Nana plaza afterwards and walk into some huge bar/place which was basically just a massive stage with like 30 girls up there. Some genuinely hot chick with massive bolt ons attaches herself to me and decides that I'll be barfining her, which I was actually pretty okay with. My mate has to go home as he has training in the morning and I'm left with this super banging girl, barfine her, we leave and go clubbing. Some rooftop rave party but I can't get in because I'm wearing a singlet lol, so we go to 7/11 and buy a tshirt (it's obv too small) so I can get into the rooftop party. We wig out there for a bit and eventually leave...

I'd planned on Taxiing to BKK in the afternoon and then partying all night and then taxiing back to Pattaya in the morning, so didn't book a hotel or anything, but this girl takes me back to her apartment which is actually pretty decent. Anyway so we're lying on her bed and she asks me for money, I was pretty drunk but for some reason didn't think she expected money for some stupid reason? She asks for 5k and I just laughed. Then realised she was serious. So I was like oh okay I'll just leave then. Eventually she convinces me to pay her 3k (+1k bar fine) which is obv way more expensive than anything I'd paid for in Pattaya. BKK exsdpensive man.

Anyway she gets the coke out and we do a couple lines each (nice little freeroll i spose), giving me the perfect amount of coke dick to let me fk her for a good hour+ (gotta get money's worth when you pay 4k innit). Then we down some sleeping pills and the next day I taxi back to Pattaya and continue partying for Songkran festival.

It's the last day of Songkran, i.e. a city-wide week long holiday where everyone runs around with water guns soaking each other. The last day is the biggest day of all so even though I'm sleep deprived, my dick burns, and my eyes burn, I can't not flick it in. Met a girl who when she smiles, looks IDENTICAL to Mia Khalifa (minus the tits), works on soi7, gonna try follow that up at some stage.

Let's see, went to foam party, drank lots, had fun, spent like 2 days with a cute thai girl who doesn't speak any english. yada yada, been pissfarting around too much lately but this past week it's been back to business and working hard.

Re: 2019 - BALLZ TO THE WALL

Been lurking this thread for a while. Enjoy your non poker related stories

Regarding the poker apps, for somebody not being really familiar with the apps it looks like that the boom is over. Regional restrictions, PKA banning players for collusion/botting, increasing fees, etc.

Would you say it is still +EV to play there or are the risks not worth the rewards? Whats with new players would you suggest to still jump on the train?

They're 100% the highest EV games to be playing in, just a bunch of added hoops to jump through that some people don't like.

Re: 2019 - BALLZ TO THE WALL

May




Pretty sweet month this month for many reasons. I just finished up playing now and saw HEM tick over 150k CNY for May which is $30k AUD pre-rake, my biggest month ever results-wise. All of the volume played was 5/10/20, so +75 buyins and +56 odd on EV I'm pretty stoked with.

I also played almost every day this month too, despite the low volume - the 2nd of May I had to swap clubs due to a conflict with a banker on a previous club, and then I think I didn't play any poker on the 23rd because of power outages. But I got myself into a really solid routine where I'd play poker every single day and study every single day, and the improvements I've made this month have been astronomical. I started writing a Google Doc at the end of Feb with my daily off-table work in it and it's now over 200 pages in length.

Gym has been going great guns as well - my deadlift max is now at 187kg; attempted 200 about a week ago and couldn't move the ****. My other lifts, notably dumbbell bench has gone through the roof too, and I'm finally able to squat heavy again with not much knee/hip pain which is really cool. I'm slowly starting to notice abs now too, something that's really never happened before. I've managed to increase my strength numbers this month while losing fat extremely slowly. So I'm in a really good spot at the moment.

Basically, I've gotten bigger, stronger, leaner, way better at poker, and made a ****load more money this month than I have done in any other month of my life. And I've also finished 3 books off this month too (7 Habits, Deep Work, Grit) and have now begun Covey's 8th Habit. Really, the key to such a great month for me has been a relentless consistency bordering on celibacy. And by that I mean, I've hit the gym every day, played 5-6 hours of poker every day, studied for 1+ hour every day, gone to bed on time every day, not slept in past my alarm every day, not gone out drinking or feasting on pizza etc (slipped once on the pizza front, shouts pizza hut). It's really amazing what you can do when you're not out partying like a mad man every other week - as Pav and chicago joey noted in a recent podcast, when you go out drinking/partying on the weekend, you lose not only that day, but the following day to recovery, and then a third day to dust off the cobwebs, and then maybe a 4th day til sleep schedule and everything is back to normal. So having cut out partying completely has been amazing - these past few days I've slept like a baby each night which, even though I was complaining about not being able to fall asleep a week ago, is a good sign.

So let's look at some cool poker hands while we're at it. Curious as to peoples' opinions on the KQdd...

So obviously not going out partying while living in Pattaya takes its tole on you, so I decided that I'd go out once a month for a crazy bender and that day is tomorrow, a day I've been looking forward to for ages now. The plan is to do beers and cigars in the jucuzzi with a few of the lads from like midday onwards, maybe hit up a G Club in the evening, then Palace Agogo at some point, and we'll probably go to iBar to dust off @DownandUnder's vodka he has there - I also promised coinflipper I'd eat some pussy in Insomnia club, so that's on the cards too. Hopefully get a decent TR out of it!

June for me is going to be my first month playing 10/20/40 so I'm hoping things go well there and the shot is able to stick. I hope I didn't peak too early in terms of running above EV! Regardless, really excited to be playing some big boy games.

Also massive shout out to my coach DownandUnder who I've been working with every week since Feb and it's been the best investment I've ever made. He's taken me from a slightly winning 2/4/8 reg to an absolutely murdering 51020 reg and soon to be 102040 reg. He is currently taking on new students so if you're interested in that, send me a message and I'll give you his details.

Gl to all in June!

Re: 2019 - BALLZ TO THE WALL

My recent overall results (that I have on this DB), first 55% or so is at 2/4/8,



By stakes,



The 2/8 is a glitch from PKA which is basically any 2/4/8 hand where someone had posted a big blind, somehow fks it up. Note the winrate at 51020 is higher than it was at 2/4/8, largely because of the massive improvements I've made towards the end of my 2/4/8 -start of 51020 career.

Also for those that don't know, the winrates need to be halved as the games involve straddles. Rake and insurance not included either but it's fairly low 5% on this site ATM.

Hands per hour for me has been around 250 because I'm only 4 tabling, and occasionally 3 tabling. Last two days I've pretty much exclusively 3 tabled. So even though I've played almost everyday this month, I've only played 30k hands or so because I've been playing with maximal focus on 3-4 tables as opposed to autopiloting 8 tables.
