Sure, but you can write the forewords.

Trooper can write some real short, short books as well.
"How to Honor a bet like a Gentleman"

"Successful Dieting Secrets"

"How to Make Your Woman Stick Round"

"Moving up in Stakes: a guide on how to build a poker bankroll"

Yeah it's difficult to see where new subs will come from. Anyone checking him out for the first time is just going to see someone walking around filming themselves ranting about haters and trusting no one.

Really nice offer Nat. I would love to be a fly on the wall for your meeting, I am doing videos myself using CS6, and I can use more guidance.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6wzYtOQi2kdYec3zwtwNpg

maybe PM me as well if not a bother.


Dougs last vlog may have been the best ever made.

With Trooper,
I think it was really fun to see a guy try and make it playing cards in Vegas and then go busto and get a job. However, it has been getting stale for a while and it seems his income is not really from playing cards...he needs to change things up to stop losing subs. Maybe discuss more hands...

Troop, maybe use my riffs in the vids or something. I have several Maidenish riffs for ya.

Yeah, the inherent nature of Trooper's vlogs means that he needs some goal in the distance or some sort of way to measure progress. Otherwise it's just a vlog every day about a guy walking around the exact same area drinking the exact same coffee, complaining about the exact same things. That's not sustainable for anyone. And that doesn't even take into account his recent dislikability, excuses, and losing.

Oh without a doubt. I think about that every time he shows them in a video. Bet he never uses either of them

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

Wow, subscriber tally actually dropping fast (I didn't know that was possible on YouTube) and Trooper is not even releasing new videos. What happened?

A. Trooper is retooling the vlog and is gonna come out with something awesome to start the week off on Monday.

B. Trooper is TOO BUSY living his life, grinding tons of hours at 2/5 at Aria and Bellagio, and going on dates to have time to edit a vlog.

C. Trooper overslept, got up at 6pm, watched YouTube while eating donuts till 1am, rewatched vlogs of him with Molly, cried in the shower for an hour, comforted himself with more donuts till 4am and went back to sleep.

Always pick C. It's always C. (I'll vote for C.)

(C.) 50/50 ... Trooper can't keep throwing good money in after bad much longer.
Trooper's​ tough guy mentality and approach has been proven not to work.
A bankroll challenge might temporarily improve his game.
It worked before.

Always pick C.

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

On a serious note, Trooper's health has been discussed in the comments on YouTube and in this thread a lot. People often slam him for his horrible diet and lack of exercise and even point out that you can see his recent weight gain in his face. While Trooper might ignore all of this, he SHOULD REALLY listen to people commenting on his recent dizzy spells.

On that show Flip or Flop, the main guy (Tarek) had a growth or mole on his neck that some viewer saw on the show. He contacted Tarek and told him to see a doctor. Tarek didn't even see the mole/growth but he went to the doctor and it turned out to be cancer. They treated it and he is now okay but ALL THANKS to the viewer who saw it and pointed it out.

While there might be a bunch of causes of his dizzy spells, based on his high sugar intake, it could very well be related to type 2 diabetes. I would be SHOCKED if Trooper didn't have type 2 diabetes based on his vlogs from the past 3 years and his physical appearance. Obviously it is best to go see a doctor, get checked up, and follow that advice but if he doesn't have health insurance and is afraid of spending $100 on a check up, read the following:

Quote:
Dizziness is a common complaint in persons with diabetes, and may be caused by low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), high blood sugar (hyperglycemia), or autonomic dysfunction (see previous section). ... In this situation the person experiences dizziness or lightheadedness because the brain lacks glucose to function properly.
and

Quote:
Dehydration. High blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia) can cause polyuria, which in turn can lead to dehydration by passing too much fluid out of the body in an attempt to remove excess glucose. With low levels of water in the body, the brain may struggle to function correctly and cause light headedness.
This is a basic google search that brought these results up. I hope Trooper doesn't skip this post while he's "not following this gambling forum". SERIOUSLY, go see a doctor. Heck, turn it into a vlog titled "Trip to the Hospital" with a crazy thumbnail and the views will pay for the doctor's visit.

Views and subs will just putter on out from here. I think troops ego is way to big for him to admit hes doing anything wrong. It will be all the trolls and haters fault this happened they made him out to be the bad guy.

The not invited shirt kraut has is great!

Trooper has gained so much weight that you can easily tell a 1-2 year old vlog from a current one just by the fatness of his face in the thumbnail. has to be up 40 lbs in the last 2 years.
