Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

5/10 was running for around two weeks nearly every day, 10/20 was running around 3days in that two weeks time frame.. However this has all stopped because most of the local fish lost way to much money, now they even reduced the min buy in for the 2/5 to get a 2nd table running.. Imo it was a stupid idea from the beginning on to introduce 5/10 as daily game, it's just to high for a regular game in Sihanoukville and all ready damaged the poker ecology down here..

Yes the friendly 1/1 game still exists, mostly same players like one year before + some random tourists,they also still run their daily $11 turbo tournament at 1pm.. Probably the only thing which doesn't change in Sihanoukville Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

In the end the whole thing set me back about $1,100 as I bought her an iPhone 8+ along with the party, cake, etc.

She was not so happy last night as I came home with lipstick on my face. I didn't take any girl from the bars, but I guess one of them got a bit close without me noticing or I was too drunk to wash up afterwards. She said it was fine, but what else is she going to say? I could see that she was upset the rest of the night so I guess I'm in the doghouse for a while. And to make matters worse, we got a phone call this morning that her grandmother passed during her sleep last night. So I won't be seeing her or the baby for a while and I'll probably have to make it out to her province on a day off for the funeral.

Haha I know exactly who it was too. Now you know what I have to deal with at Riverking with certain guys always wanting to play too high.

Naga has a $1-$2 NLH game and $2-$5 depending on the lineup. We at the Riverking run $1-$3 NLH with $2-$5 upon interest. We also run two daily/nightly Omaha games at $1-$2 and $5-$5. But really we'll spread anything as long as there are players for it. Our $1-$2 Omaha game just got bumped up to $2-$5 an hour ago and just the other night we played a $1-$2 dealers choice. We ended up playing razz, svitten, 3-2-1 Omaha and badugi among others. The Red Fox has their $0.25 dealers choice game, usually after their tournaments.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Had dinner with pop a couple of nights ago, where we ran into a bird he used to shag from a bar in our neighborhood. Apparently she got married about a month ago and changed her job and life to accommodate her new life. We proceeded to have a very interesting discussion about relationships between foreigners and local women in Cambodia.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Do most Cambodian girls speak English with a thick accent like hers? I'm having a hard time to understand what she's saying.

Her English is better than most, but that voice is somewhat grating I realize. It's not typical but I will say that Khmer does sound aggressive to most foreigners.
