He claims to have had great success grinding Single Table SNGs during the WSOP and yet since moving to Vegas has not played them at all.

What this means exactly, I'm not sure. I think in the back of his mind he doesn't think he can reproduce these results. Perhaps he doesn't think he can actually beat Vegas 2/5. So he takes these "wins" where he can get them and then moves on to try to get new wins rather than potentially tarnishing the wins he already has.
I remember a video alittle after the 100 hour challenge when he got told to not video record hands at the MGM. He went on one of his rants saying that he will never play at the MGM Grand again.

In my opinion, MGM Grand is a great room full of players spewing chips at night(hint hint). When I played there months ago there was a drunk guy that came from the club that was bluffing on every hand and just kept shoving in chips. I just called him down with top pair top kicker and picked up some easy money and a nice win.

I also remember a night where Trooper hit for 1300K here. Its pretty sad that he had to boycott this casino.

1.3k I mean. If I have the ability to win that much, I'd have a sleeping bag under the table.

Trooper and PokerKraut both made an appearance in this vlog. I found this particular statement interesting though. It sounds like Trooper probably scolded him for coming up to him in the poker room.

I actually think you are confused about this. It was PokerKraut that was super pissed off about not being able to film at MGM. I also believe PokerKraut vowed to not play there again (i haven't watched his videos recently, but has he been back?)

Trooper's rant was about Planet Hollywood right after the 100hr challenge. Even then, Trooper was still playing at Planet Hollywood despite not being able to film and said he would respect PH's wishes. I think he now realizes it's better for the vlog to film some hands so he is unlikely to play at PH but it's not a boycott per se.

On second thought it looks like PokerKraut stopped going to the MGM because he didn't like the dealers there and the unfriendly atmosphere. Or perhaps it was just because he couldn't find his car. I do believe they told him to stop filming there though.

I wouldn't be surprised if he is scared. What happens if he continues to play 2/5 and then his results start to show that it's unlikely he can beat it? It would be a massive blow to his ego and humiliating when people make fun of him.

By quitting 2/5 he can protect his fragile ego. He can tell himself he is awesome at poker because when he played 2/5 he crushed it so he is a crusher. And maybe he can even crush 5/10.

It's why he has a million excuses when he loses at 1-2. It's really important for him to have a high opinion of himself. He becomes enraged at the thought that he needs coaching so he would prefer to make up excuse after excuse instead.

Trooper Across America !

Most people who have 2000 plus miles to drive would hit the road by 10 am.

I doubt Trooper, after dicking around at Starbucks, didn't get out of Pittsburgh before 12 Noon, possibly as late as 3pm.

Trooper could easily have 600 miles under his belt today, I doubt he has much more than 400 miles, and I wouldn't be surprised it's less.

80 year old retirees driving to Florida have more get up and go then Trooper.

I'm sure Trooper is much too busy to throw an Instagram photo up.
