My poker journey began back in 2003 just after Chris Moneymaker won the main event of the World Series of Poker, starting what we all now know as the poker boom. I was a manager of a "PC Bang" or Lan Gaming Center in Los Angeles when one night just after closing some customers asked me if we could all stay late to play some poker. I had never played before but they soon taught me as we embarked upon a $0.05-$0.10 game. That single innocent game soon turned into 3-5 tables per night and thus was born my very first private game. I would come to run one more game in L.A. before heading to Las Vegas as a player in 2006. I spent the next five years grinding on the strip of Sin City printing money with ease the first few years, only to go broke during my final year. While back in Los Angeles rebuilding my bankroll, I had an occasion to board an airplane for the first time in 32 years to visit a friend in little Burlington Kentucky. With a visit to Cincinnati, Ohio and a stop over in Philadelphia I soon caught the travel bug and set my sights beyond America for my next poker adventure. I ultimately settled upon Cambodia to which my mother asked, "Why Cambodia?" I have been asked that same question many times since and the most honest answer I can give is what I refer to as the holy trinity of degeneracy: sex, poker and alcohol (probably in that order). The life I have led since makes Las Vegas look like Disneyland. Although I came here as a player, I made a name for myself running live games from literally one end of the country to the other. I traversed the rough terrain of the live scene here for almost half a decade, before walking away to grind and run games online. If the first six years were any indication, the next few should be even wilder and crazier.
