Re: warning to high stakes travelers!!

sick ****...

when i was leaving PCA, i of course withdrew the 10k from my PS account that I was told I could bring back into the US without filing paperwork...so i take my happy ass to the airport with the 10k brick in my pocket...and i obv smuggle a box of cubans back in my check bag...

when we go thru customs, my girlfriend and i go up together, and i've got the 10k in my chck bag, and another like 1100 in my pocket...spending money in various random wads of 20's and 100's and 1's and 5's that like somehow made it through the week without getting spent...

we go up to the guy and hes like...so you're one of these poker kids huh?...i guess since my new carry on bag (thanks pokerstars) was less than inconspicuous...(30 other ppl in line for security also had the bag)...so anyway he's like you got any drugs, cash, insects, etc...you know the whole drill...and im like...uh cash...hes like how much...and im like 10k...and hes like u sure you got 10k...and i was like yes...i have exactly 10k cash, its in my bag, would you like to see it...hes like no that'll be just fine...you're coming with me...and i was obv like jesus christ...he had asked my gf if she had any cash...and obv she answered truthfully and said...umm like 90$...so anyway...they take us to this dark lil room where they are holding nenad medic hostage (guess he had a pokerstars bag too)...so my girlfriend and i walk in...and hes like, "they got you too?" and i was like...**** i hope not...and he laughed etc etc...so i hand my gf the wad of 1100 in my pocket...im sure its on camera from the customs inspection room, but whatev...im like, might as well try...cuz nenad informs me that they take from you anything above what you report...

so we wait there for like 45 minutes...i talk to serb a bit, and im like...dude, if we're back here much longer...we're gonna miss our flight...and hes like, "yeah, my flights at 4:15..." I look down at my watch and notice that is 4:45...what a funny guy...anyways, they come back into the room and get us separately, and they start interrogating me about how much money I have in my bag...and im like 10k...i already told the guy...this is after waiting for an hr...so im like, look in the bag, we are gonna be late for our flight, etc...but respectfully obv...so this new customs guy goes thru the routine...do you have any insects, or petri dishes, or innoculating loops, or whatever...money, cigars, etc...and im like...uhhh i got some cigars in my check bag...and hes like what kinda cigars...and i tell him that they are montecristo #2's proudly...not realizing that you can't bring back ANY cubans into the US...when i've been outta the country with my dad, he's always brough a box back...so he's like, YOU HAVE WHAT in your bag...and i was like umm..a box of montecristo's from the hotel...and the customs agent gets like offended, and i guess he decides not to go through the hassle of making them retreive my check bag, but he asks why i'd be so bold...and i was like well, the merchant at my hotel said that we were allowed to bring 1-2 boxes back into the US...and i believed him...and the guy asks, "was he wearing one of these?" and points to his US customs badge...

so anyway...he decides to be an ******* apparently and brings over some paperwork, and hes like i need you to fill this out...its the paperwork required if you bring over 10k into the US...and i was like..ummm i only have 10k, and i did that on purpose, so that I wouldnt have to fill out any paperwork...and he was like, well what if i drop a penny in your bag...and i was like...well what if i drop a $100 on the ground!?

anyways, your story is way sicker, but i figged i'd post mine too

Re: warning to high stakes travelers!!

I would have such a hard time not going off on the custom guys who act like dicks just cause they can. I'm pretty sure anyone in the whole security process at airports act like *******s just to make themselves feel important while making 25k/yr.


btw viffer r u the guy who I see in the P towers gym also with a trainer? if so, Hi.

this should teach you not to overplay one pair in NL.
should wait for str8's and flushes before committing to playing a big pot.

Re: warning to high stakes travelers!!

is this 10k rule only for flying into the US? Or also flying within, from state to state? I was under the impression you could fly state to state with any amount of cash

thats my understanding. and if u have a wad of cashu should never take it out of ur pocket. just show it to security when they ask u to empty ur pockets. they dont want u pulling it out either, etc

edit
ps i backpacked round india with my roll

true that

in the Philippines if u bring more than 250$USD in filipino pesos (thats 10000 pesos) out of the country and you get caught, the police bring you to the bathroom and will ask you for a bribe of about 1/3rd of what you're carrying in pesos.

they allow you to carry 10k US but if you carry more they'll tax that too.

Actually, no. We have a much crazier drug jihad in America than most of Europe, for example. There is a reason why we have the highest incarceration rate in the world.

OP got off light, imo. At least they didn't deliver him a box of weed (that nobody ever saw) and then shoot his dogs.
