Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

I've been playing more Omaha lately and have been running good this week. Not a great session but managed to cash out a $300 profit. After the game broke I went out with some of the players as we went to Ponytails on street 130. We know the owners of this bar and they're really on it in terms of the girls and customer service so we were more than happy to show them some love. Then like most other nights we ended things at the Rose Bar. FML we always end the night at Rose Bar.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Sihanoukville is a ghost town. Bunch of dudes with dreads wearing pajamas and a desolate p4p scene. Hate live poker but was forced to do something and ended up dropping 1100 to some chinese dudes that barely knew the rules. Would not recommend.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Well I should specify... If youre just looking for a business transaction it's fine. If youre looking to "party" it's pretty grim. Out of the 20+? hostess bars in sihanoukville square there was maybe 2 bars that had customers in them and the overall vibe was just very depressing. Down by the beach the "freelance" bars dont come close to comparing to thai/phils spots or even in Pontoon in PP which isnt amazing.

Could just be the season but after reading lots of comments online about reviews of restaurants and bars saying how busy x place or x place is every night and then going and seeing essentially know one there it's kinda strange.

But I've always been good at developing online businesses and knew I'd get something going eventually. I managed a gogo bar in Bangkok for two years while I tried various things. Finally got my business built up, have several employees now and can live a nice lifestyle without having to worry. You're on the right track with a YouTube channel already. Work on expanding that or anything else you can do online or remotely. Don't rely on poker unless you want to grind out the hours and not do the degen sht.
What types of online businesses have you tried and what's the business you succeeded in building up? I don't want to take up the thread talking about this so PM me if you want, Mojo. Really interested in my options and if you could help it'd be much appreciated. PT, if work schedule permits try to post more videos of PP during the day and your favorite spots to hang out @. I live in NY so I can't play online poker as its illegal, but I go to AC a lot and my record is still in the positive. Still want to practice online and get the hang of it of course. T-Minus two months before I come out to Cambodia, probably will be staying at the Riverking first couple of nights then find an apartment near RK. Also considering teaching English for a bit until I get my online ventures past 1k+ a month. But not too sure about that. I'll tough it out if I have to, I worked as a NYS certified Teacher Assistant for a year and that taught me how much i hate teaching.

How safe would you say it is though? Thailand police are so sketchy because you never know what way they're gonna spin something

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

My girlfriend is sick and sleeping in so I couldn't really wait for her to have breakfast. So I walked down to the restaurant near my place and had a traditional Cambodian breakfast. It still trips me out that I can walk out of this place afterwards while handing the owner $1. I just got a text that the Riverking opened a second hold'em game so perhaps I'll go down and play before my shift starts.

Thanks, she is Khmer. Don't worry pictures will still come as I'm not dead. I'm a faithful guy but she knows I'll go out with the guys and have fun here and there.

Made a conscious choice not to post pics of the girlfriend. It's one thing to subject myself to public scrutiny but I don't want to do it to her, especially when she's not even aware of this thread's existence.

Here is one funny bit that I will share. My daughter's name is Nit. Obviously not my choice.

Never heard fish. I have heard them referred to as chickens. Like when a girl is young or just started working at a bar she's called a new chicken.

The 5-5 rake is really good as the percentage decreases at each level. Here is the link for our rake structures for every game.
