Ok I'll do my best to re update this again!

Got back to England - maaannn what a relief, had a family meal with friend 1 (the guy that left early joining) where they all told me to never ever go back.

But after that everything became pretty boring pretty fast - I had friends back home, but none I was super close too other than friend 1 because I had been away for so long, I didn't really have anyone to talk to about the somewhat of a huge ordeal I had just been through.

Friend 2 got back, but it was a weird awkward atmosphere, we never really spoke and he just did his own thing with old friends.

I started playing a bunch of live poker, which was fun because I met some guys that read my blog, or knew the guys I studied with. I ate a lot of the food I had missed.

But then I started to see Friend 1 and 2 having fun together without me, felt pretty ****ty tbh. That's when I decided to write out the huge post you can see above. It was really cathartic.

I didn't post it on fb, I asked friend 1/2 if I could. ! said he didn't mind, 2 said he would rather I didn't.

shortly after that my brother tried LSD for the first time and had a life changing experience - I'll link to his video if it's still up, that he made afterwards. He has a form of autism that he believed was cured by the experience and tbh I believe him.

It wasn't long after that that I was trying LSd for my first time. My experience wasn;t as profound as his, but it definitely changed me in so many ways as a person. I saw how selfish, judgmental and unemotional I had been and all I wanted to do was connect with people. I saw the real value in human connection.

A very small example of the way I changed was when talking to people, when saying 'Hi, how are you?' It wasn;t just for the sake of it anymore, I was genuinely interested in what people had to say.

It was after this 'trip' I decided to share my post on FB, I blocked some guys mutually associated with me and friend 2 so he couldn't see it. The response was overwhelmingly positive and I had a lot more people to talk to about it, but eventually friend 2 found it and he removed me as a friend and hasnt spoke to me since. Friend 1 regrettably has taken sides and I more gutted about that tbh.

Things were pretty slow then until xmas, I just spent a lot of time eating and with family.

After that I got a little more involved with BRS a staking group based mainly in the UK - I got to play a 5k in Rozvadov (I bubbled)

I started to do some coaching of my own and my students were having great results and just through that word of mouth alone BRS contacted me about being a coach for them - I have since taken the role and now am have been made the full manager of the entire cash game stable - we have about 25 guys atm playing 25-100ff on party poker, but the rb is insane at 80% (can't lose :P) Hopefully I'll update more about this later.

Despite feeling I had no friends after friend 1 and 2 fell out with me, I'm fortunate to say since my LSD I've made so many new ones, with to be quite honest even more stronger connections.

I'm improved other aspects of my life too, for example I used to go the gym to try to look good, and tbh I hardly ever was motivated to go and I got very fat, especially when I would avoid going for so long. Now I have changed my motivation, I want to be the best version of myself and that has really helped my stay motivated. I have a PT I see everyday an have been doing so for the last few months.

The next big poker opportunity was the Irish open. I can honestly say its the best stop I've ever been to. Everyone is in a good mood, drinking and playing poker and then St' Patrick's day night out was insane, probably the best night out I've ever had! Which was then topped the next day when my friend won the main event for 210k!!!

You guys deserve full on trip reports for each night out though! They were insane!

I'm home for 2 weeks now and then I am back of to Thailand for 7 weeks. Gonna grind hard in Jomtien, which is near pattaya the dejen area and then my brother arrives and we'll do a bit more travelling.

Re: Thailand Adventure

LSD is something everybody should do before they die, in my case I like doing it once a year at least, also had a life changing experience with something I was struggling at the time.

MDMA is more directed towards your senses and your perceptions and interactions towards the outside world and less of an inward trip than LSD but in the right scenario(not for partying) is the ****, so its deff a must

good to hear from you dude!!

Re: Thailand Adventure

Quality stories...you have some talent plus a shedload of material...ever thought about getting into print. Not necessarily for the money (which you probably don't give a toss about) but for the journey??

Reading it all, can't help but think...

Live fast, die young.

Part of me is jealous...hope there is more to come.

tyvm I'm not sure what you mean exactly by print, by ty for the compliment.

You've inspired me to tell another story though before we get to the insane night out reports:

I met a gogo bar owner in a home game in Pattaya (dejen capital of the world) he was probably the worst poker player I've ever played with, the whale of whales. So obviously you make sure you're as nice as possible to him!

He had some insane stories about home he actually made a lot of money from poker! He went on a sick heater and then became the guy everyone let win tournaments in vegas as he was british and he would pay tax. How he use to have dinner with players like John Juanda, who advised him not to take the game to seriously and take the cash while he could.

Now he owns a gogo bar in Thailand, he has 5 wives and 2 girlfriends, so needless to say, he is my hero. He evn has a wife at home in England waiting for him to go retire to her and knows exactly what he is up to in Thailand.

He told us how he didn't like to sleep around much anymore, given his relationship status, but one day a new girl in his gogo bar comes to him and says, I want you, I'll let you do whatever you want to me, tie me up, **** me in the ass, anything you want! How could he refuse?

Off he goes back to his place, he locks the door, goes upstairs, ties her down on the bed facedown. At this point I should point that he is a very big guy, very very very fat.

He starts to **** her in the ass, and then... his back goes, an awful twang in his lower back, he's stuck! He can;t move - He has also taken a viagra so no way his boner is going don for a while.

Let that sink in.... He's stuck in a hookers ass and neither of them can move, at any moment any of his wives or gfs could come home.

He has to rattle the bed and reach for his phone, breaking the bed in the process and manages to ring his friend, he doesn't give specifics to the friend other than I need you to come round urgently.

The friend has to break down the door as its locked... He gets upstairs just to see this whale of a may buried inside a hookers ass while shes tied up on the bed.

Fortunately he was able to get him out, but the friend was mentally scarred.

And they all lived happily ever after

Re: Thailand Adventure

So I'm back in Thailand!

I'm hyped! I'm staying in Pattaya the most dejen place in the world!

Night one was going to go gos, saw one of the hottest Thai girls I've ever seen, but she straight up rejected me for a rich old guy in the corner

Went to a friends gogo to say hi and got invited to a home game which a bunch of other go go bar owners.

Ended up going to a short time hotel with a half chinese half thai girl, that decided she was licking my ass without me even asking!

The prices in pattaya seem to be up though, maybe it's because it's high season?

Next day just chilled and tried to fix up my sleep, but the go go owner invited me down to tell me about the game, so naturally we went back out!

Went for a massage, was looking for a a legit massage place that would do a happy ending. I haven't quite developed the skills for finding these yet. In general, I have found that the legit massages give good massages and if you are lucky, get the right lady etc you will get a happy ending. Honestly one of the best experiences of my left was a happy ending massage in a place I had been like 7/8 times before and never had an inkling I was going to get one, so assume it was always above board and legit, but suddenly one day I felt like I was essentially being teased the whole time. Which was super annoying, I was trying to calm down and hide my erection as this was a legit place, but after an hour of that I was just dying to get home and finish it myself, but she offered and it was incredible because of all the build up. Despite that I went back another 3-5 times and had no sweat whatsoever :/

Anyway we go along looking and themassage shops, I'm pretty sure in Pattaya you'll have a sweat wherever you go, but I didn't wanna risk it, so I was being quite brazen about asking about it - Some of the girls giggled, but I was looking for a yes, not a let's see. Then I found a place where I got the yes I was looking for from one girl so me and my friend went in, I wanted the second girl that came in as she was more attractive and he wasn't bothered.

It was a good massage and she was gettign very frisky with the inside of my thigh, so things were looking that way. The end of the massage she asks if I want a shower, which I'm told is sometimes the code word. So I say yes I want shower. Then a bit later I'm heading towards the shower as I go to walk off she kinda grabs my nipples and I'm like ok, I come back here right? Yes she says. I shower, bit of a weird order but I'll get over it. I come back and she's just waiting with my clothes :/ And Idon't have it in me to ask for one so directly so I get dressed and go downstairs and wait for my friend... who btw had a great time with his lady! So I blue balls my way home.

Next day was the home game, which was great bunch of guys with money to burn, free food and drinks. Got drunk won like $1.5k and then got some really bar recommendations.

Headed to a bar called shooter bar on soi 7, it's definitely the best bar on that road, I bit more aggressive than a go go on walking street and the girls are about n par. My friend ended up with an ex muay thai fighter, and she really looked the part, ripped 6 pack, braided hair, she wasn't like what you would call typically good looking, but she looked like she would give you an amazing time.

And she did... he sent me a picture of his bed where she had just squirted profusely all over it. So he slept on the sofa. I cuddle up with mine as I was slightly in love and went for the more girlfriend exp, might see her again but who knows.

Poker's going pretty well, my results are really good atm stable is getting really big, about 50 guys now so we've just hired an admin dedicated to the group.

need to get back in the gym though.

Hopefully try to give regular updates and stories as they occur

Subbed, incredible read OP. That drug bust story could be made into a short film, I dunno whether I'd laugh or cry if after all that they say you can pay a 75 dollar fine.

Re: Thailand Adventure

Man I'm so bad at updating - Getting into this Pattaya life now. Networked a bunch at the live poker games and made some small money there - but knowing where al the hidden gems are here is great.

Had a few friends over visiting from Macau and they are convincing me to go back! I'm very tempted, but the lifestyle there is just so so poor. So I've decided to stick to Thailand for about 6 more months and then reassess.

Going travelling across the islands in a few weeks with my brother and some friends, then gonna get a 6 month place in pattaya 1st June with some of my stable horses

Dejen story wise, It's been fairly non stop, last night I took home a deaf girl from a bar, she was really cute and I think must of have some sort of complex because I turned down some amazing girls to go with her - guess I like being the guy that was being nice to her when not many others were, either that or the fact that I could fart all night and she couldn't tell

Re: Thailand Adventure

So in full grind mode now!

Here's my year so far:



As you can see the 80% RB is pretty insane.

Of the 244k hands, 205k of these are from 100ff.

+$30.4k

The stable I'm running now is going great, haven't had a losing month yet. Last month as a group (this excludes my results) we made $66k, about 60% of that is paid out to players, and then I split the remainder with the company that bankrolls the stable.

The house I'm staying in now in Thailand is pretty awesome! The photo's don't really do it justice. We have 4 big bedrooms, a massive kitchen, a pool, a pool table, cctv, an electric fence, in a quiet village just outside pattaya, about 10-15 mins away from the party scene!

The guys I'm staying with are all in the stable too which is really convenient.

Also, just in case anyone happens to know anyone, I am looking for a coach to help with the group, ideally a decent amount better than me, as I want to take these guys to above 500nl. I willing pay for the right guy, so if anyone knows anyone please pm me!

I know a Brian you might be referring to, but it's not his game. There are currently about 3 private games I know of here, usual stakes are 50/100 or 100/200 with the occasional 300/600 game.

As for 'how are the games' I go into too much detail but they are good sometimes and sometimes quite nitty. I don't really play them anymore as I cba to sit there for so long when I can just play online.
