Finally getting the good stuff in Korean

Since been in Korea a while now I'm getting the language and social lingo down fairly well. Here's a taste, and a reminder for myself. I would write this in hangul (korean alpahbet) but my laptop doesn't have the hangul buttons.

Ya, jona pono ju sayo - Hey, give me your phone number

Deh rio da jul keh - I'll take you home

Toyoil bam eh boja - Se you on Saturday night

Mahsahgee heh ju say yo - Give me a massage

chingu del lyo wa - Bring your friends

onneeya del lyo wa - Bring your older sister (which just actually means, 'bring your slightly older close friend who is also a female', they call eachother brother and sister as friendship terms even if they are not actually family)

kee yo wo - You're cute

Bwo yor jo - Show me

moh hey - What's up/ What are you doing

yo bo say yo - Hello (when on phone)

dot dae - last cigarette

Sul ma she-lay - Do you wanna drink? (alcohol obv, and to friends)

Sul han jan hey yo - Do you wanna drink? (alcohol obv, but to a fit bird)

Club ka ja - let's go to a club

Jip eh ka ja - let's go home

Jon hwa heh - Call me later (when on phone)

nah jun ee bah - see you later

bo go ship oh - I miss you

Orum ju say yo - Give me ice please

tec beyol hada - You're special

Misoga yepuda - You have a pretty smile

Misoga eepo - You have a beautiful smile

sah ju sayo - buy it!

Begupa - Hungry

wan jon begupa - very hungry

Ara yo - Do you know/understand (are are asking)

Ara so - I know/understand (you are answering)

no nung hal su esoh - You can do it

wan jon - very

jay mee esoh - funny

wan jon jay mee esoh - Very funny

nongdam - joking

nugu - who

ne ga - I/Me

morh - what

odi - where

onjay - when

odoh kay - when

weh - why

Chan/Jan - Cheers

We ah yo - Cheers

Thats me done, I'm practising this, and having access to this from the smartphone is great while at work so I can practice.

In other news unrelated here's a picture of boshintang 보신탕  (Dog Soup)

It's delicious. Frankly, sorry if you don't feel great about it, but this is pretty standard in Korean culture. You can read more about it here

I've just finished reading Phil Gordons Little Gold Book. Let me say this, it was surprisingly good. An easy recommendation to make. I'd say it is better than the poker blueprint, small stakes no limit holdem, harrington on 6max online cash, hole card confessions and pretty much any other book out there set in this price bracket <$30.

Phil has a good writing style and the book even covers PLO to some extent. The best part for me was the insights from Jungleman in a question and answer format. These dozen or so pages alone make this book worth getting. There are also sections with Annette Obrestrad and Phil Galfond which are great too.

If you're like me and have read all of the books out there, then there will be a lot of times in the book that you will think 'Yes, I know this already', but if you are reading as an experienced player who is looking for a refresh or an intermediate player looking to get to the next step then this book is for you.

Check it out at

Here's a quote from page 117 of the book with Jungleman Daniel Cates:

DANIEL: Before we start, Phil, I want to set a foundation for what we’re trying to accomplish. What we’re trying to do is simple: make money. Don’t
worry about balance or looking like an idiot. Don’t worry about playing an elegant game. All we want to do is maximize our EV and make money.
There is always a best way to play a hand. For every spot, there is an ideal action. We’re going to act based on what we know about our opponent, and we’re going to play a maximally exploitative style, even if that makes us exploitable in a few spots ourselves. Every action has a justification, and every action adds to our overall expectation and long-term EV.

living in a box

I live in a box, so do you. We commonly refer to it as our thoughts, ideas, brains. Whatever is going on upstairs in your head controls you, just as what is going on upstairs controls me, and everyone else. The question rarely asked is.. who is the master that makes the grass green?


EDIT: I was hammered when I wrote this, so take it fwiw
