He is always in demand by bars and clubs so always happy to do exhibitions. Has done many in pattaya and Bangkok as well as all over the world. This will be a first for hua hin.

At those prices, I'd be going if I was there, but is JW short of cash? Or is this just a way of getting a cheap holiday? :?
Do you expect him to give it away? Do/did you give away your labor?

Wow - don't get me wrong fellers, no disrespect intended to Jimmy White, quite the opposite really. It's just that I'm as surprised to see him appearing at El Murphy's for five quid a ticket as I would be to see Nigel Mansell doing laps at the local karting track.

same here DM, those were more or less my exact words. Not so much shocked he has fans all over Asia, I knew that already, but the venue and the low price did make me wonder if he is strapped for cash. Who knows, maybe in a couple of years we'll see Frankie Dettori doing a demo on one of the nags out the front of the Hilton and Robbie Williams playing at Father Teds. :thumb:

But if I was in HH right now I would go see Jimmy W in a heartbeat.

I imagine people of all kinds do what they need to for money.

The actor Jeremy Irons was once asked why he chose a role that was not up to par for his career. He answered " Are you friggin kidding? I just bought a castle" (paraphrased slightly).

Wow! That's quite a cast of characters. I'm interested in all three, but I wouldn't want to see Benn lose his temper - lol!
