To be fair a lot of pro poker players have the same weakness of
not folding over pairs and as Rampage admitted himself he's not
the best player. So seems like people in this thread are expecting
a little much IMO.

Maybe Rampage is selflessly putting out atrocious poker strategy to make the games better for the rest of us. A true hero

It really doesn’t.

He can basically use iMovie, cut footage outs, add music, viola.

It’s seriously super easy.

Only time consuming part is going through the raw footage, but he doesn’t strike me as someone who is picky.

He doesn’t even take the time to add graphics when he discuss hand history.

That alone will probably double his editing time.

just importing the videos from phone to imovie will take a minimum of 5-10 minutes

Just watched it and yea, large ouch there. I like to watch he and Brad Owen since they are entertaining but that was really tough to watch. Been there done that but a few those those were HUGE WTF moments.

Definitely less than 2hrs total. As you said, he shoots in chronological order and he's had the same format for years.
Probably finding music and new b roll takes the longest for him at this point.

Yes, transferring files will take forever.

Even just moving from iPhone to computer will take a while.

I thought we are talking about purely the editing portion?

Didnít watch the video but if what you described is true, yeah I can buy that he ran terribly. Seems like every video he loses big though he focuses on bad beats and how unlucky he is, for the past 6 years. Probably true with most regs that donít move up. And they ignore the times when they win with sets and got lucky. To them those hands just confirm they are a genius.

I thought he was doing better financially but after his recent move and after reading some other comments here it sounds like he is still struggling to avoid being broke. And that can make tilt worse at the poker table and more stressful.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Rampage's biggest problem is that he is just splashing around putting a 20 minutes video together from an hour and a half session.

Spoiler and long rant about that vlog after just watching it again:


So this is when Trooper's dreams of being a professional poker player died. If you enjoy schadenfreude this one's for you. He wore a Bruce Lee "Fear is for others" T-shirt, sat down and played "guns a blazin'" (his own words) and proceeded to lose $2K and ended his mission. Early on he was so excited, and couldn't wait till the weekend to start his 5/10 but did it right away on a Tuesday.

Nice guy Jaman makes an appearance and just being supportive to a new poker vlogger (11:00 in).

Funniest part of this to me is Trooper bluffing the river, getting called and he said the villain looked so confused after Trooper showed his cards. I wish we had more details about the hand. He must have taken one of his very odd lines and villain was probably confused about how Trooper played every street.

Sounds like Trooper almost pulled off the bluff though. Iím not surprised some of the 5-10 players might be fooled because he does take some different lines.

Wish we could hear what that villain and the other players at the table were thinking of his play.

He mentions the "asperger cases" with such disdain. I'm guessing those must've been the guys who smoked him for his stack in that game. Trooper sometimes doesn't realize just how angry and hateful he can be.

5/T Bellagio regs deserve all the hate and disdain that they receive.
