Confirmed. He's crushing souls and can barely see over his chip stack of $100 chips at LATB.

absolutely not

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Sad how vicious haters would rather attack the bearer of good news as dishonest rather than celebrate or at least appreciate another's good fortunes. It's like any thing positive actually acts as allergies that get in the way of the negatives that their minds are dependent on to feel good about themselves.

Anyway, Trooper was a slight winner in the aggregate few hours that I got to play in the same 2-5 NL game with him. I don't know how he did in the higher game. I don't play higher than 2-5.

A few hours does not make a poker life.

When and where?

The rest of use will block you so you can preach to the choir of 1.

Were you trying to make a point of his winnings over a few hours of poker playing? If so, what is it?

I play almost exclusively on weekends, Aria and Bellagio. I was only in the same room with him at the Encore. I played with him a few uneventful hours at the Aria and Bellagio a few weeks back. Mostly just pre-flop stealing then c-betting. They were tight games. The kind that Trooper calls boring in his videos. He was tight, silent, and serious. Very un-volatile.

He bought in for 500 and left around approximately less than 800 each time. I saw him start and leave, that's how I know he was winners. He never went into his pocket.

There were no other vloggers in the room but if you know some local regs, they can probably confirm Trooper's presence higher than 1-2 and 1-3.

Was this right after or right before his shift manning his TrooperWare kiosk downtown?

Or was this during a business meeting he had to sell coffee under his registered trademark?

Were all of Trooper's friends at the game railing him? All those friends that he always talks about but we never see?

I bet Boski and PokerKraut would be officially too chicken to play that game. Not because of the stakes but because they fear Trooper giving them a stern talking to like he does in his videos. You heard him tell off all those haters, that janitor and security guard at Bally's, and even those evil unionized cocktail waitresses at the Venetian.

He might even call them haters and they are clearly cowards with no integrity because they didn't show up to his game like they PROMISED they would. There's no way that they have a sense of humor like Trooper does. Now there's a jovial guys who can take and give a joke.

Guys, if Registered 2018 says it happened, we must believe him. He's got amazing credibility!

5.
Spotting Trooper playing 2/5 or 5/10 would not qualify as good news even if it were true. Staying at 1/3 is one of the few smart things he has done since he got to Vegas

Not just un-volatile, but VERY un-volatile? Sounds like the Trooper we all know and love. I don't think I recall him recalling a session where he wasn't up or down a buy-in at some point, even when he finishes even.

Of course he didn't go into his pocket. When was the last time he ever needed to add on to his stack? Whenever you see chips on the table in front of Trooper, you can bet the house that it is all profit.

On an unrelated note, I was in a boring game at the Tropicana (they reopened the room for one night only for my birthday) and we were playing .50/1nl a few random days, weeks, or nights ago and DNegs stopped by on the way from a VGK game. He bought in short for like $20, ran it up to $200, and then lost it all to some old guy in a motorized scooter named Doyle who rolled into the room. Brad's cat Cosmo was dealing the game too. I swear it happened!

I don't know who started the rumors about Trooperware kiosks but it wasn't me. Stupid idea as the rent for those kiosks can run 9k per month. Zero chance of breaking even.

I may have been the first to give a suggestion that Trooper should probably create a coffee - and energy drink - brand using private label rights. But it was just a suggestion. A suggestion I'm convinced could actually work so long as it is done in a way that does not require high fixed costs as would be the case if Trooper opens a fixed location in a high rent area. An ice cream truck sized food truck and maybe coffee delivery (which Starbucks has been experimenting with in Seattle and New York) would be a good start.

I don't know what kind of business meeting Trooper was talking about in that month old video. Could be skateboard related for all we know.

Yes, Poker Trout and Boesky won't dare wear copycat Go Gamble hats in front of Trooper's face on Trooper Thursday despite their FAKE JOKE promise and commitment to do so.

Poker Trout is actually really funny because it implies he's a fish. But what's the joke with Boesky?

if you don't like Boski I can understand, but disliking poker kraut is a pretty good sign that whatever side you are on is the wrong one and that your opinions are bad. I don't know anybody who dislikes or has ever had a bad thing to say about poker kraut, other than you and trooper himself.

Contrary to every statement Troop has ever made regarding reporting every session we have an unimpeachable source saying he is a liar.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Just watched his latest.

Being honest his vids are more drama intensive versus the field.

His future on current path is negative ev to quote the nerds.

No relationship, Westgate is drawing dead, poker is killing him, subscribers are flat, prob create huge medical bill on teenage activity shortly and fill in the blank.

Im not a hater. Just feel like it could have have gone a different way.

Unfortunately thats not for you to decide. Its for the superfans like blackballed and his buddies. If you make a logical point that is not favorable to Trooper, you will be labeled a hater.

deal with it. Its the world we live in now. Participation ribbons for everyone

Which podcast? Today's episode?

It's true though. I'm not sure how he's viewed nationally in poker but in Vegas poker circles, he's that annoying little brother who wants to hang out with his big brother's friends but he's just too immature and doesn't fit in. And his trying to butt in all the time and pretending to be older than he is just makes everyone feel uncomfortable but you can't really say it to his face because he's a little kid and that's just a mean thing to do so you politely ignore him and kinda laugh about him behind his back because it's the least mean thing to do.

(He claims to not read 2+2 so stuff said here is behind his back too.)
