Talk to the guys at Ball in Hand pool hall. They should know as they are also the distributors of brunswick tables in BKK.

Google is your friend: http://www.theballinhand.com/

There are two of them (at least there were last year)

The Original Ball in Hand is located in the Rajah Hotel Complex, Sukhumvit Soi 4 (Nana). (downstairs from Sin bar)

The Ball in Hand Asok:

* 314 Square meters
* Featuring Nine Brunswick Metro Pool Tables
* Seven 9 foot tables and two 8 foot tables
* Pro Shop that caters for A-Z of any cue repairs
* Large center bar
* Perfect playing environment for pool players of all levels

Located between Sukhumvit Soi 12 and 14 in the basement of Times Square Building.

Brunswick tables are pricey, that's all I know about it.

Sorry for the noob question. I'm planning to fly from London to Thailand in late Jan, early Feb sometime, but I'm not sure when I want to fly back. Can I get a ticket with a changeable return journey date? Will it cost significantly more?

This quite obviously depends on the airline you choose. Changeable dates will obviously cost more, how much I dont know.
For my ticket there was a big difference between 6 month and 6 month + 1 day.

But in the end, call the airline you want to fly with...

Hello guys,
I'm currently in Bangkok and I'm looking for a nice comfortable place (bar, restaurant...) with internet, to chill and play some poker after crazy night...
We have free wi-fi at our Sunrise Tacos sukhumvit Rd Soi 12 to Soi 14 branch as well as internet accesss ( must pay there ) at our Subway at Suk Rd 7/1. Both are open 24 hours a night.

Will be setting up soon a tv and DVD showing some of the past WSOP and other tournaments at the new Sunrise expansion. Will do this early morning and afternoons as we get crowded at night and need a turnover of the seats from 6 p.m. to midnight. I've been wanting to do this and now am motivated to do it sooner rather than later.

Please stop by and say hi.

Greg

With regard to obtaining visas - I have a drink driving charge from about 12 months ago. Does this affect my visa application (It does if I go to the USA)

Im pretty sure the entry thing said nothing about past crimes. You can get visa from ur own country. I got 3x60 days, which means I just need to cross any border for 2 seconds every 60 days to be here for 6 month. If you are not broke I think a 1 year visa is pretty easy obtainable from ur home country too, they just need to see bankstatements saying you are in fact not über broke.

Lame. Guess I'll have to find out what all you Americans keep whining about and play a little Stars/Tilt.

That house is so clean. I wish I could have gone with everyone but I had some [censored] come up. I look at my place here compared to there and it is literally depressing.. and I live in an apartment on a damn golf course lol. I am planning some vacation spots within the next few months and Thailand is my first stop for sure.

is this true? i'm flying into bangkok tomorrow. i'll probably be there for < week then on to somewhere else. no plans. the only yellow shirt i own is a university hockey intramurals champions one. i could always buy one, but i think i'll bring that, and dump it after the 5th.

anyone want to meet up? pm me

From a NYTimes article:

To catch the infectious Thai spirit of the day (and show your enthusiasm), pack a yellow shirt. The National Commission on the Celebrations has asked everyone to wear yellow shirts (the royal color) every day from Dec. 1 to 5 to demonstrate their love and respect for His Majesty.

You can buy the 'official' King shirts anywhere, pretty much. Polo style seem to be the most popular, and they aren't expensive.

Use credit card and withdraw money at the ATMs, max card every time for best value. And then you dont have to bring monopoly money

I wouldn't try to use it to buy things. Just go to one of the hundreds of kiosk type money changing places in Bangkok and get them turned into baht as you need them. Or deposit the money at your Canadian ATM while at home and withdraw at will when in Thailand.

Does anyone know of any flights from BKK to the US east coast? I'm trying to get to Hartford or Boston but flying into NY or Philly first would be fine.
