thats bc he really doesnt know anything. his "getting x to 1 to call" is like the only thing he ever says, and half the time it doesnt make any sense lol. its really funny

Given that he's got something like a dozen six figure scores, including one over a mill-ball, I can only hope to be as bad as he is.

I think he's a good player but he did play pretty bad in 5 card plo today. He bought in for 200 and cashed out with 1800 but he could've easily cashed out 3k plus. The hand where he flopped a set of kings and another player flopped a set of 5's was lol bad

He has never said he is even mediocre at 5c plo. He just started the game. All the 5c plo sessions he has had have been live streamed. But in NVG, that's enough to call him bad at poker, i guess.

Re: Jason Somerville streaming Poker on Twitch and currently over 9500 viewers!

it's not just 5cplo though. it's poker in general. I watched the stream when he played 20 game mix tourn. omg I've never laughed so much in my life. I understand if he doesn't normally play the games, but if you're a professional poker player you should at least have some clue. and if we really wanted to get into it, I'd say he's pretty bad at hold em too

I think on stream he purposely plays games he isn't so good at just for fun and entertainment. I don't think he's bad at NLHE fwiw, he just doesn't give out great reasoning for his plays. Lots of his "lol pot odds" reasoning isn't really correct, but maybe he does that on purpose to encourage bad players to continue playing badly.

Overall, I don't see how this is anything but great news. Having 10k odd people learning from a poker stream every single day that doesn't even give good advice can't possibly be a bad thing.

you would think so. but no, that's just how bad and funny it really is..

to the above poster, artichokes, I'm not saying it's a bad thing at all. indeed having that many viewers see his bad play is great for the game. but it's ridiculous nonetheless

If you have time to watch him all day, you should sit him all day everyday. Unless you're broke, you're hardly broke...... I mean your posts on the last two pages alone indicate a high roller and a very mean poker player.

Good luck.

Re: Jason Somerville streaming Poker on Twitch and currently over 9500 viewers!

I watch about every day.

While I certainly don't agree with his "we are getting x to 1 here I will happily call with 94 off in the bb".....You can't argue with his results 4 milly on hendon mob plus some big scores on the old full tilt and a recent 30K score in a 1K buyin on stars

I think its spewtastic to be such a hardcore blind defender.....and there are times when he gives his opponent no credit for a hand when it's obvious to me he/she has it.

Having said all that there are elements to the stream that I think have improved my game.

He has played 5c Omaha for about three weeks now. He admits the whole time he has not any good at it as he has only played it fro fun on the stream for the last three weeks.

If you think Jason sucks at poker, well, you probably don't know what you are talking about.

I watched that tourney also. A large number of the games he had never played even once. He freely admitted he had the website pulled up with the rules for the games so he could figure it out.

Re: Jason Somerville streaming Poker on Twitch and currently over 9500 viewers!

I'd argue that him defending his bb so relentlessly is a very good approach against weaker players. It can be very frustrating to know that you will almost never be able to steal the blinds.
Doubt it is very smart in the pstars 1k buy ins though

Re: Jason Somerville streaming Poker on Twitch and currently over 9500 viewers!

he uses that whole "x to 1" call **** bc he literally doesn't know what else to say or base his actions off of. it's retarded

the whole "can't argue with his results" **** is ridiculous. I thought at least on here you guys wouldn't buy that garbage. clearly he is very opportunistic, that's prob the best word to use. doesn't mean he is good at poker

You kinda sound like a douche. News flash, most people don't play perfect poker. Would you really want 8 phil Iveys at every table you played.

Instead of wasting your time on here being a dbag, get to the tables. If Somerville is terribad there are a lot worse players out there. You should be able to make a killing

I assume jcarver is better than you at poker unless you can prove otherwise.

As for being a d-bag, you have already proved that to everyone's satisfaction.
