Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

Kevin may do better on his own but I bet dollars to donuts that Staples does better being away from Kevin.

Not saying hes not a good guy in general but everything I have read,heard and everything that I feel from watching him leads me to believe Kevin is a very toxic
and manipulative individual.

I think lots of toxic and manipulative people can be "good guys" in general. They often have large personalities and can be fun to hang around in certain settings BUT you dont want to get close to or depend on them, else you get tangled in their web of insecurities and selfishness.

Not really a breach of TOS given he didn't open up a new account; one was created for him (and presumably garlicxtoast was deleted.) Aren't loopholes great? Why does it piss you off? How does it affect you at all? Also, lots of other team pokerstars players have been given the same luxury. Lex and Jcarvs come to mind.

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

He's going to be on Big Brother season 5 now. It's clear he has goals that are not twitch/poker related. Which is fine. I'd def not pump $ into his stream anymore if I was a subscriber.

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

Interesting time to take another potential 3 months off to be on big brother again, but he seems to really enjoy it so it was probably a no brain option for him to get to go on again.

Hopefully it doesn't hurt his poker progress / learning too much , and hell if he ships $100k from winning the show it would be interesting to see him return with a much bigger bankroll for more expensive coaching/buyins etc

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

funny he had been talking so much crap about Big Brother lately, its obvious that was just a deflection to him being on the upcoming season and now it all makes more sense to why him & the Staplers broke up with all 3 of them being silent and Kevin also not going on the streamboat, should have been an easy guess that he was going on BB5

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

Yeah all makes sense now. The "fight" was probably because Kevin had already committed to the Euro trip but then go the invite from big brother which messed up the stream house plans. The whole "dealing with family" stuff line was lame. Not sure why it has to be a secret, also surprised that big brother is still on tv.

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

I actually watched the first 4 or 5 episodes of Big Brother with Kevin on it, it's the only time I've seen the show and what a dumbass show it is..lol..Looks like Kevin is staying out of the picture for now as it's still early on in the season, but the only real time they showed him doing anything so far has been when he was flirting with some gay dude. Kevin says that he'll flirt with anyone in order to win; male or female, so far it's just been with a male. I don't see his strategy just yet besides the fact that he's staying out of big arguments that happen. The first place prize is decent $100K, a new Toyota and $30K in home furnishings, but man it will be hard for him to win. He's already at an advantage being a returning player, but there's also 7 other returning players who were the most popular from other seasons, so it's going to be hard to take the first place prize down. As of now, he hasn't done anything to make the show more enjoyable or interesting, I don't think staying out of the spotlight will be a good strat, I think he needs to start mixing things up.

So that's my review on one of the dumbest shows on t.v

This makes sense. And the fact that some reality tv producers selected him to be on their show is a sign that he's probably not the easiest person in the world to live with.

Does Kevin try to turn this into another reality/media opp or go back to streaming.
There has to be more money in something besides Twitch for a Big Brother winner right?

Re: Kevin Martin appointed Pokerstars team pro online

jebediah gibbler mentioned that kevin was a borderline a-list celeb for weeks after his first time on bb... now that actually won it, i imagine he could make lots of money doing appearances and stuff. he'd be a fool to not ride out his temporary fame and essentially get paid to party. i don't see him doing regular twitch streams for a few months.

Borderline A-List celebrity from being on Canadian Big Brother? No, just no. Congrats to him for winning, those handjobs paid off apparently.

Yes, he will get some attention for a few months. That does not make him an A-List celebrity. Should he reap whatever rewards come with that? Of course he should. Its a Canadian show, going on its whatever season... Im Canadian, I couldnt tell you a single winner or even a single person thats been on the show. Yes, its got an audience, Im sure alot of pre-teen boys love him.

Im not mad, just a realist.
