Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs (NO 2017 REG ACCOUNTS)

Boski is finding out that a successful tournament grind is made more difficult when you provide the viewing public with a window to your game and thought process. That, plus the subconscious (or, perhaps, conscious) desire for clicks might've made him get even more aggro/spewy, which is ironic since the best path forward for him probably is to rack up subs and get sponsored.

Still - who's to really say what his game is like, since at most he typically analyzes less than 5% of the hands he plays.

Holding the phone vertically like a huge fish.

Also, when you eat fatty food you'll bust faster? Or that is the junction in the tournament where blinds reach the level that starting stacks have under 20bbs? Not sure.

Unrelated to the actual blog (and I don't plan on watching the rest of it..):

and

I thought I had remembered that he scammed people a while back, I guess he is a pretty scummy dude. From the first thread:

I usually try to ignore his comments that I don't agree with but this response to Steve pretty much says everything we need to know about him. Are you actually Trooper?
His last 100 posts are all in this thread, and every single one of them is him defending trooper's honor.

I do agree with you he plays sub-optimally at times, and if he fixed his leaks, his results would be even better.

Don't get me wrong..his Hendon Mob results are very impressive, but I think he could be even better if he slowed down at times.

Being a Lagtard is not always the proper play, all of the time..
What hands have I played sub-optimally? What leaks should I fix? I am always looking to improve and I am open to hear some constructive criticism. Please elaborate more than saying that I am too aggressive.

It also makes for the best hand breakdowns of all the VLogs, imo.
Well said.

He's gotta make money to buy food for the dogs, and put a roof over their head.

Otherwise, tunnels
What makes you think I get crushed at PLO? Is it because I lost a few buyins at $1/2 on dinner break?

Ha Ha, you fell for that? As if I could punt off 100bbs!

My #1 priority is to profit at MTTs. #2 is to take care of my dogs. #99 is how many Vlog views I get. I started vlogging to raise money for the Las Vegas Boxer Rescue. I have done that and opened the door for many more opportunities for myself. Those ~5% of hands are usually unflattering. I show the biggest pots regardless of how I played them.

Your reading comprehension is on par for what I would expect from you.
