I'll be returning to Nagaworld this week, my annual New Years trip. Yes, New Years in Thailand and Cambodia.

This visit I'll be staying at Nagaworld itself. They had a promotion of apx. $90.usd a night including a good breakfast buffet so I figured what the heck, go for it, it's only money.

I hope and plan to win at the sportsbook, betting MLB, using my early season system described earlier. In short, bet home teams which are 160 or less with a high paid pitcher vs a low paid visiting pitcher. It's not fail safe of course, but has been doing well for two years now. It's easier when you don't have a wager to think you can win in the long run, but I'll give it a go for a week or two this season.

I'll take a closer look at the Black Jack and try and answer the kind poster's question about spread betting and the shoe penatration and/or hands being dealt without wagers. I'll have some nicer cloths(aka long pants) this visit so can slip into the high limit rooms upstairs as well.

I'm going to try the various restaurants without worry about cost. I don't drink much wine, certainly not expensive bottles of it, so what the heck again. Who cares if a steak from the U.S.A. is $50.usd? It better be good is all I can say. There is a lot of flair and fluff on the web site but these places aren't as five star as the photos make you believe.

I'll also be going to the pick up bar, "Darlin Darlin", to check out the available ladies of the night. Word has it, from a good source, some are asking and getting $300.usd for an all night romp. What a ridiculous amount of money considering a decade ago same could be had for $20.usd.. Yes, I know she's different if you pay $300.usd. No ladyboy worries in Cambodia as opposed to here in Thailand. So if you like her enough and are stupid enough to pay this sum, that's okay, it's your money and her time. Nothing "better" than a nice looking Vietnamese woman with a good attitude.

Anyone with specific inquires or interests please feel free to post them here. I'll be more than happy to check it out and reply.

Kind regards. Nok the Kook

Checked into a very nice room. I'd call it three star working on four. Extensive cable TV, WIFI, large with good mattress, no lingering smoke scents, good helpful housekeeping, in room coffee(which all hotels should do).

The people are so very friendly.

There is a Baccarat tournament starting tomorrow morning. $5000.usd entry fee. I'll get more details. Not sure if I'll enter, doubt it. But seeing someone win $200,000. in person would be something new for me so I'll attend at the very least.

New keno parlor now has bouncing balls which are some how read by a camera. Maybe standard in the USA but a first for me. Last year they claimed "computer generated". Still no extended game playing which is just stupid as so easy to program into the computer. But asking and getting looks of interest in helping and answering vs complaining(as is the norm in Thailand) is enjoyable.

Sports book still open, one Texas Hold Em game going. No smoking at the table.

To be continued. Just to help and contribute.

Pardon if I missed this, but any craps?

What stakes was the hold em? How much was the rake? Does it look like more than one game ever goes?

Thanks. Have fun!

I think they said "1-2" but that seems low. Most players this trip, appeared lower stakes players compared to last year. The rake was on a display thing, top rake was $20.usd depending on of course the pot size. I'll take a closer look today. Yes, second game is ready to go with a waiting list and dealer in position. The crowd seems to lack "class" but who am I to judge. I think my comparison is to the World Series of Poker broadcast. They did seem to be having fun. Cheers.

No craps, Asians simply don't like the game. Even in Macau very limited craps available.(so I'm told, never been) I'm a craps player and I do find the Sic Bo entertaining, there is another name for it as well, involving three die being shaken in a cylinder. No excitement here other than the baccarat tables. A lot of shouting at the baccarat tables.

Turns out, nobody is paying the entry fee. They just told me that for some reason. All the players are VIP very large bettors, invited guests only. Over 600 entered, set up with mini tables.

Today, mid day, no game in progress. But remember, there is a major baccarat tournament going on.

I copied the rake information. They said 1-2, $200.usd buy in, 2-5, $500.usd buy in, 5-10, $1000.usd buy in.
Up to the players which blinds, first player sort of controls it. Doesn't seem to be an issue. Second game can always be opened with different blinds.
Rake:(pot size)
$30 - 1.usd
60 - 2
100 - 3
150 - 5
250 - 10
400. $20 (and above I assume)

The black jack is indeed still continuous shuffle, 5 decks, no touching the cards.
$10-200
$25-500
I'm sure higher limits can be arranged, maybe even found...
You can now buy in at the tables, all on the main casino floor. Not in the VIP rooms.
Pair bet pays 11 to 1 (5-40)
Black Jack does indeed pay 3 to 2.
Split any pair.
Double down only on 9,10,11.
Dealer stands on soft 17.

Good luck.

Bad small day yesterday.

Got suckered at the roulette automatic game. Thought I changed it from .25 cents to 1.00 and before I knew what happened, my money was gone. Sort of a dark corner. They explained you still have to bet 80 units so when I changed it to $1.usd I was making $80.usd bets without even know it! Dumbass me or was it whatever. I asked for a refund, they politely declined.

Then making matters worse, lost three keno games, two spot marks, the five keno ladies around me offering free drinks and food. So I quit, needless to say the numbers came up the next two games....

To top it off, the over bet on the Liverpool soccer game was showing 5.78 to one. I figured go for it. Went to the window and they said "now only paying 2 to one. So I didn't bet it. Total was 2.5 goals, final score, 4-3.

It's off to breakfast now. At least the Chinese soup is free at the Baccarat tournament venue.

Yesterday more of the dumbass in me at work...

Decided to start out low and only bet $25.usd on the even money bets at the roulette.

Found my favorite table empty, and eight, count em..eight blacks had come in a row. Six low numbers as well.

So I figure red is due, and high numbers. $25.usd on each. Six reds fall, first four being low. I didn't press either bet. Chicken shit I am again. I also hit two single number $5.usd bets. Left the table with positive $250usd on a $500.usd buy in. But still, there it was once again, a streak, and I didn't jump on it. I'm feeling sick.

Went into town this morning and got some generic xanex, generic valium, generic viagra, some Pepto Bismo, all the drugs at remarkable prices, no prescription needed.

Vietnamese hookers like ants around here but no real lookers, only left over meth heads from recently closed venues. I've yet to go in the high end disco. The Philippine "ambassadors" (all 16 of them) put Miss Universe to shame. Simply stunning but not interested in dating good looking American men twice their age.

Wanted to be the motorcycle races today and tomorrow but not on the board. Will stick with MLB and Euro soccer.
