Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

One of the big Omaha players wanted a $10-$20 game so I spent the better part of the morning trying to organize the players by 2:00 PM. It started out slow with only three players, but eventually got going and filled up to eight players at one point. Sometimes I wonder to myself, " where the Fu*k am I?" I live in a third world country where it's impressive enough that there are those who can play $1-$3, but then I look over and there are eight people playing a game with a minimum buy in of $5,000. The whales don't mind playing the grinders, no matter how obvious they make it that they're bum hunting, so I even encouraged some friends to pool their money together to get into the game. I was glad to see that one such friend won $7,000 and managed to keep a healthy portion of the winnings.

After work I was originally going to play the Red Fox tournament, but a friend wanted to grab dinner so we ended up getting some sushi instead. I was impressed to see they had three tables on a night where we also had four games running at one point. Sushi was good as usual as we went to the Sushi Bar. But of course we over ordered as usual. Afterwards I met up with some of the Omaha players to go to a KTV. I'm the second oldest amongst the Koreans so the bill is usually covered by the oldest one. But as I have never paid I decided that I was long overdue to cover one bill. Luckily I picked a night in which it only came out to $500. That plus a $20 tip, $25 to my girl and $25 more after a guy picked a girl but left early without tipping her.

Then we went to a Korean restaurant owned by a friend of the poker room, ate some food and drank some more. As it was still early we ended up at Epic Club where our friends ordered $300 worth of whiskey, took one sip and paid before declaring that the club was no good. Then we went down the street to his own club Muse where we finished up the night.

I'm home now at 4:00 AM but I have to open the room at 11:00 AM. I don't get hung over, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to be sick tomorrow in one way or another.

Yeah, Saigon is pretty much the same scene, replace tuktuks for regular motoscooters. Totally standard in third world countries, if you look at the governments, it should be no surprise
