Trooper does work hard he’s just a very dumb person. He could easily be making 5k+ a month off of YouTube if he had like two ounces of intelligence.

You'll be fine in STL as long as you stay in your lil area. Blacks over here, Indians over here, Polish over there, etc.

I was literally told I didn't win the bid on a house in a suburb west of STL because the sellers Googled me and wanted to keep the neighborhood "pure".

The sellers real estate agent was soon after fired. Lawyers were contacted and all sorts of calamity ensued. Me not willing to pay $300/hr for a lawyer for a case that I probably wouldn't win(lack of non hearsay evidence) for a house in a neighborhood I no longer wanted to live in is the only thing that kept the case from proceeding.

Not wanting my daughter to grow up in such a climate(if at all avoidable) was the main impetus for the move honestly.
Sorry that happened to you ... can't imagine what must go through a seller's mind to pull some **** like that and think like that. Greener pastures are available in Southern Nevada ... and carrot cake.

You don't know what you're talking about. Open your banking website, right click on your balance and click "Inspect Element", change the figure to whatever you want.

More of this content! Good stuff...

I played 2/5 at the Bellagio last weekend. It didn't seem tight at all. Was a lot of wild plays going on. (*EDIT* In reference to Jaman's video above saying tight passive 2/5 at Bellagio) Not really rolled for it though so was just shot taking here and there.

Always wondered what you thought about living in Stl-from my experience it is one of the most racially challenged cities in the country and your description of groups staying in their “area” is accurate

GL in LV. Enjoy the vlog-thanks for taking the time

Yup, I LOL'd when I read this too - editing the HTML is exactly how those Indian scammers work when they 'accidentally' deposit $10k extra into your account and show you.


Also, if these banking websites were unscrapable, how do these budgeting sites like Mint work to get your latest transactions and account balance?

I agree somewhat. It does appear that he is "working hard," it just appears that he is working on a lot of the wrong things. It just feels like if he took 20% of his time and energy and moved it from one section of his life to another then he would see much better results.

Instead of spending time looking for a coffee to buy and resell as his own blend, if he took that time and learned how to up his hourly at the tables by $5 or learned how to label his videos better to get 25% more views then he would probably be better off.

As I've said previously, if he does want to sell coffee or merch, he needs to promote it. Not sure if it has changed, but I posted this two months ago, "The thing is he does a poor job of marketing his stuff outside of shouting it out in his videos. The only working link that I can find on any of his social media for his online store is in the about section of his YouTube page and he has it in the info section of every video. His Instagram says GoGambleStore.com, but it isn't a hyperlink. There is no mention of his store in his twitter bio that I see. There are Facebook and Instagram pages for GoGambleStore, but neither has posted anything for 1 year and over 2 years respectively. He hasn't posted to own Instagram account since January 1 and his twitter is just him spewing random stuff or putting up a link for his videos."

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Working hard is not only relative to others, but relative to one's own work history.

If I sat on my ass all day in cubicles and now I have to mow lawn for a living, I would say I am working pretty damn hard.

And if I was working for a gas station and they even provided a calculator for me to figure out how much 10 gallons cost, playing poker will feel like really really hard work.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

There is a guy around here who would sell roses at exit ramps to fund his poker roll.

I understand why he does that.

Ps. SEO is a pretty lucrative game for good reasons. Marketing your online store isn't as simple as posting it in social media. In fact, marketing can be pretty challenging for those without experience or technical background.

I understand it can be hard, but there appears to be 0 effort. He spends time finding coffee, designing shirts, hats, etc... and then is just like, I hope someone finds this and decides to buy it.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

It's a lot easier to do those things because you know what you're looking for.

Learning something new can feel like navigating in the dark.

Even if you are motivated on day 1, after few hours of trying to figure out what to do, day 2 will feel like a huge drag.

A lot of people undervalue college, though one thing it does teach you very well is how to go about learning new concepts.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

By all accounts producing vlogs is hard work and Trooper produces them at a super high rate. It's beyond me why anyone would think he's lazy (especially as compared to someone like Andrew Neeme who neither creates many vlogs nor plays much poker).

Perhaps you may have noticed wee differences in production values between the Trooper videos and those of Andrew and Jaman, for instance. I'm certain the amount of time spent in the editing room and in advance preparation varies accordingly.

Not necessarily but even if it did Andrew creates so few videos. Sometimes he goes months without posting a video. Dude is clearly way more lazy than Trooper.
