waste of time if u can't beat the corresponding online games though , you will be feeding the regs there

the over heads will eat away at your profits

Hi there,

Depends on the stakes u wish to play.

I can recommend you a couple of places to play either in Manila or Macau that will suit you requirements.

Cheers

Yes i can't seem to beat the online games, variance sucks u know ya, but i am doing very well in home cash games, that is why, exploring new places.

hmm, It seem that you got some experience and perhap share your story about like bankroll management inclusive of "overheads" and accomdation. It may be useful info for me before i plan to go there soon. :)

If i am not doing well in macau, i just go back to sg to grind , i am sure i will improve by that time. :)

Hi,

Nice to hear from my little fan. Ha ha.

Anyways if you are grinding 1/2 n 2/2 and wish to do it profitably. You should stay here in Singapore and continue to play. The games in town are one of the easiest in the world. Although it is not going to stay like this for long, but at the moment it still is the best fish pond around if you can consistently beat the games.

Unless you wanna move up stakes to 2/5 or 5/10 upwards , then you should consider playing overseas.

Come to LWPS on the following week, catch hold of me anytime and i can advise you on your best option.

Happy CNY and good luck for the new year's grinding session.

Cheers

Ivan

Lets put it this way, if u go there, you will be the fish. I would crossbook any consistent winner in singapore (2,2) homegames when they go play 25/50 in macau. Learn how to walk before you learn how to run.
