Sorry if my question was unclear. What I meant was, if Rayz didn't get Queens or any premium hands, what would you all have thought of him folding every hand the entire night and winning nothing?

Same player, same play. Potential to win money and get paid off if he gets dealt a few premium hands, but in my theoretical example, he doesn't get dealt premium hands.

So instead all you see is Rayz folding all night and makes nothing. It could easily have happened. Saying, "well he won big and so did Bikeking" when they got dealt good hands and Boski got dealt absolute crap, just totally results oriented imo.

I'm not saying Boski played great, but he got dealt nothing much and also took a bad beat against Bikeking in a big pot.

Also, Pokerkraut got dealt good hands as well. Very little really good or creative play from any of these guys, except the one non-vlogger reg.

(I guess the one point that could be made is that if you switched Boski's seat with Rayz's seat, Ray probably doesn't lose very much and Boski might win a bit more, but ultimately Rayz will net more profit due to limiting his losses)

Meh, I think the fact that we knew the hole cards has something to do with that. rayz rayl ck'd back the turn and then bet big on river, which looked like a bluff. I can understand the hero call.

Shoving T8 on the 448T turn was Jeff's lowlight. I can only think that Jeff was putting Dave on AK and trying to get him to fold it (which is not a terrible thing to do in tournies when protecting your hand can be more important than extracting the most value).

I've only watched 1 or 2 Rayz Rayl vlogs..but doesn't he have 2 or 3 kids?

When you are supporting a family like that, it only makes sense to play the way he does..just like Knish..

Boski paying off that $400 river bet was the lowlight of the night..

it was a pretty standard line w/ over pair, bet check bet for two streets of value in cash game,(if it's Ak air, usually go bet bet check give up on the river) surprised a player w/ 700k live earning cant lay it down. I guess a tournament player usually thinks river big bet is polarized, which is not always the case in cash game.

To my knowledge it wasn't announced in stream, they didn't keep track of people adding on or rebuying, I guess for everyone you'll have to wait for the individual vlogs. I didn't speak to everyone about their results but Charles said he lost 3k, Rayz won 1.4k, pokerkraut 1.2k, myself 1k.

I like Kraut but he's the least thinking poker vlogger out there. Even Trooper puts some thought into his hands - he thinks wrong but at least he thinks. And Trooper ain't no nit!

What was there to be impressed about and why does someone supporting themselves or not factor into anything? I say this while thinking Rayz seems like a very cool and entertaining guy, I just failed to see any of that last night.

My ranking of entertaining players from last night/most enjoyable to watch.

Charles
The non-VLogger (big guy, forget his name)
Hello
Poker Kraut

To me, these were the only entertaining players at the table last night. Can group Boski, Neeme, Brad, BikeKing and Rayz together as not bringing much to the table. Some played zero hands, some didn't say a word, some had not much charisma.

So the important matter that kept Trooper from attending the vlogger game involved sitting at home playing with an app on his phone.

Let's see how long it takes some of you guys to scrub hundreds of negative comments from dozens of your vlogs.

Tedious work.

Education is also part of the equation. I find degen gambling to be disinteresting and only watch televised/streaming poker for what it can add to my game.

How should someone play in this game if his goal is to potentially line up clients for live game coaching?
