Troll post most likely. Since poker, I assume we're talking about online, but it doesn't really matter, is not exactly a sanctioned activity in Thailand, taxes would be a secondary matter.

Who is blackmailing you ?

It is not the police i worry. Fine is about 30$ when they catch you while playing.

It is about tax evasion and roughly 10years with half a million of winnings.

Do pros in Thailand find it hard with the time difference? What are your usual hours of play and what does a normal day look like for you guys?

Thanks

I always wanted to check out Patpong Museum and thought it would be a nice date idea to take a girl for some spicy activity that is not a ping pong show or a drink at billboards, but in that kind of ballpark.

Thought about drag shows and that's an option, but what else do I have? any suggestions?

What are most of you guys grinding on with the time differences to most of the good action sites?

I'm normally a live pro in the US, but I decided to travel around for awhile and look at different poker scenes. Checked out the underground games in BKK, but with the rake how it is, I don't see the point. Thinking of looking into poker bros, but tbh, I don't trust the Chinese apps if I don't know the agent (and even then, I don't really trust it with large amounts of money, play a bit on suprema, but make almost nothing on there, since my winrate isn't that great and I play small stakes) and I don't think I'm good enough to beat the more legit sites for a decent hourly... Or at least, not for anywhere near as much as I make hourly live.

Would be interested in meeting up with other pros in Thailand, discuss life in Thailand, poker,

Considering just waiting until I go to Cambodia or Phillipines and playing live there, but I've been to all 3 countries before, and I definitely prefer Thailand of the 3.

not trying to be a dick or nothing, but most winning "live pros" couldn't beat nl10 without intense study and buttoning up the holes they never knew existed because they play in laughably bad fields

if your plan is to just go to asia and magically transition to playing online, my strong suggestion is to first test that theory by playing serious volume online in USA#1 first

i say this as someone who would immensely struggle to beat nl25 going in blind today but can still sit down at the low stakes live usa games and just absolutely crush because they suck so bad

Anyone ever had surgery in Thailand (not on insurance)? Tore my dang meniscus.

Would be interested in anyone's experiences/recommendations

Where are you located?

I recently had surgery in Phuket, at Siriroj hospital (owned by Bangkok hospital). Surgery, 1 day in ICU, 3 days in normal room ran close to 500k on insurance, possibly I could have negotiated a lower price, if I had to pay myself.

A government hospital is an option as well, in many cases it is the same surgeons.
However then you run the risk of being in a dorm room, some of the staff may have limited English abilities, and they have way less time to help you with different things (like going to the bathroom). The locals usually have a family member accompany them at the hospital, at all waking hours.

You might also have post-op costs, like physical therapy.

Cheers for sharing your exp.

Yeah I often see surgeons split their shifts between private and gov.

Physio will also be a big drain, although I do know a fair bit about that now. I actually tore my right knee meniscus a few years ago. Had insurance then but opted for physio. Was dodgy for like 3 years but recent MRI shows no tear lol - it healed somehow.

Unfortunately this time surgeons are all saying it won't heal and needs surgery.

I wish there was someone without a bias, or someone who specialises in surgery-avoidance. I doubt physios would be able to read MRIs and diagnose. Meniscus surgery seems really bad long term for knees

Something kinda f'd up - I've seen 5 docs now. All said meniscus repair, maybe ACL if it's bad but prob not, as very minor signal on MRI. One doc at MedPark was adamant I need to reconstruct ACL asap (take a tendon from hamstring and make a new one). Sounded so strange given it seems like a slight strain from everyone. Even included it in the quote that you have to pay up front for.

I ended up taking a second MRI (2months after 1st) and my ACL has completely healed, so it would have been a useless surgery with long-term implications. Obv any surgery avoided is best option. I wonder if he would have gone ahead with it after seeing my ACL with arthroscope, or if not, whether I would get a refund for that portion of the surgery if he didn't do it.

Anyways, need those 2nd (3rd 4th 5th) opinions I guess
