That point does seem to have been made, but you're still here, just checking things out.

Glad to hear this. I saw him in the ST and thought, "wtf dude?"
Been enjoying watching his and Mike Vacanti's vlogs lately. Mikes dedication is extremely impressive.
Jaime seems to be putting in a lot of hours studying, it seems to be paying off right now.

Re: Jaime Staples

I think, to some degree, the haters hate Jaime because he's a bit more innocent behaving than Lex or Tonka. Jaime is a good kid trying his best and some people just can't sit easy with that. So whatever, some of you hate him and can't help it. That's really your problem, not his.

Definitely agree with some of this. Jaime puts himself out there for monetary reasons though. He opens himself up to both fans and haters and it comes with the territory that some will like him and some won't. People will voice their opinions about him whether good or bad, im not too sure why some people are surprised by this.

no idea what Jaime's bankroll is, but playing a $55 satty to a $1K seems pretty reasonable based on the range I would assume it is in. I'm sure those sattys are juicy.

Re: Jaime Staples

Hi, im not sure how to talk about this...

I have been playing poker for X amount of years, i am a winning reg on multiple sites. (only for low & mid stakes)

How Staples & lexveldhuis play are standard, and even better then most players.
But their ev is way under the amount of chips they are receiving...

I know this sounds like the beginning donk player.
It just isn't normal how good these guys are at 'winning flips'

What i have noticed is if the pro has a bigger pair the other player his lower pair doesn't get there (yes im talking about the 80 vs 20% flips)

Im not sure what to think or how to feel about this. I cant be the only one that looks at these vids and think its normal how they keep on running godlike like this.

Re: Jaime Staples

^ You do realise that the videos they put up are only highlights of final tables that they make where they probably do win the vast majority of their flips. If you watched the streams live you would see all the mtts that they bust out of and see them losing flips.

Just quick to bash eh? I'm okay with it though. Just makes the "nesters" in this thread lose more credibility. Spewing negative statements without knowing.

Re: Jaime Staples

Yeah I'm against false statements being thrown around but it's no secret that Jaime used to jump stakes after a few wins. Maybe he won't know and if that's the case good for him.

In all honesty I used to give Jaime a bit of hate a while back but am respecting him more and more. At the end of the day we're only human and every single one of us in this thread likely makes trivial missteps on a regular basis.

I don't really care about short term variance and results but I respect the way he is going about his life right now.

I agree with this. He's getting some **** under control and comes across really well in recent vids and posts.

Specifically, he's working out daily and amping up his work outs as well; he's gone from hiking to doing gym work like weightlifting as well, with the help of a trainer. I have no idea what his diet is like and suspect that's his weakness, but he's doing the exercise at least.

In fact, he's visibly losing weight and just looks a lot healthier to me, although he's still clearly overweight.

He's also doing a lot of studying apparently, trying to fix holes in his game in order to recover his losses and book some wins. He's made quite a few comments about this and actually this week I think he didn't stream for a day but spent the day studying.

He's also started to do some short meditation sessions and is experimenting with that in a way that I think is not too pretentious.

I personally liked that he purchased a piece of art when he made a score over $5k and then posted that on Instagram etc, even though he got a ton of hate for his taste, I thought it was a cool thing to do irrespective.
