You're probably right. That seems to make the most sense for him right now, especially with him revealing that he's at a crossroads.

Troop, when you see a fork in the road, take it.

If he sees a fork in the road, he is heading to Teriyaki Madness with it.

the thing about this twitter account, i wonder if someone hacked into it if its the real Johnnie vibes or if its a troll? he is sending out Pms asking for stakes with a huge markup, which is crazy for anyone to pay. especially when theyd be better off staking me, seeing i won 2nd in the only tourney i played this year, so im second in 100% of my events and he isnt. and instead of ripping people off on the juice id give them 75% no markup. people are crazy to stake others (if those people have money). the only people it makes sense to stake are those who have too small a bankroll to afford their own buyins, (u need 100x the buyin to buyin on your own money). otherwise like someone in this thread pointed out or on twitter thread, if u buyin for 800k a year and cash only 800k a year u have just made $112,000 while all the customers u fooled into buying u in came out behind. this was at 1.4 markup. which means i should be staked because i have almost no bankroll with the exception of my next 6 months of living expenses at around $2500 to 3000 a month. but the guys who are rich and dont need to be staked, theyre not getting their money from poker, or from winning, theyre getting it from being staked and living off the markup strictly.

mainly, though, i only am posting this to try to see if its really him or some bot. the way he kept laughing and calling me retarded i dont think its the real Johnnie vibes, for i think the real johnnie vibes would have more sense than to think id waste money in this way when i have none and have more comfidence in my abilities than his. nor do i think he would insult someone he wants a stake from

With a small poker room there is always a possibility that the room might be eliminated. Small rooms have been closing the last few years (see the LINQ, which opened and closed pretty quickly). Luxor closed right before the WSOP.

How busy is the room on other days?

It’s usually been a ‘live in the moment’ type of vlog and that probably has some appeal to some of his fans. You only live once so enjoy life right now, and go gamble.

Seems like some of his fans admire him because they hate their job or their boss and think he is living an easy life, and they wish they could live a similar life. But I don’t think his life is easy at all. It’s just different with its own set of benefits and challenges.

The poker probably seems like the ‘fun’ part to some, but it could easily seem like very frustrating work to him when he has to do it for the videos and doesn’t get the results he wants.

Negreaneu a better overall player

Questionable if he is better than Neeme, Owen, Burton

Would agree he is better than:

Trooper, Marle, PokerKraut, RyanDepaulo, Mr. Bill

I am assuming he is excluding guys like Negreanu, Joey and Doug from this because just lol. As far as the got famous from 2+2 vlogging crowd I would probably say Vibes is the best cash player, but I would take Boski over him in a tournament format anyday.

Really, how different would Tim's vlogs be if he stopped playing poker? He'd just have to walk, drive, boosted board, etc., to somewhere other than a poker room. The substance of the vlog would remain exactly the same.
