Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

I watched that Rampage vlog with all the overpair punts. It's almost as sad as the Youtube comments that are commending him on his decision making during the hands. Run bad only goes so far.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

I was playing 2/5 at the table next to Trooper that night. I've said before, he looked so angry the whole night. The other players were all jovial and at least interacting with each other while they played. Troop made no effort at all, seemed grumpy and angry the whole night. I know that game is mostly recs so maybe he didn't know anyone at the table and I get it, there are some nights I dont feel like chit chatting with everyone the whole session.

But there was definitely something different about his attitude that night.

He was buried so of course he took the "I'm at war with everyone. Take no prisioners." attitude. But in all honestly, he's always come across as someone who is quiet and reserved so him being anti-social is normal. He only opens up around friends or in front of a camera for his vlog.

Wow I just watched his passive AA line in the last video. Just such a terrible way to play AA. I guess I'm watching his stuff now for the trainwreck factor and not for any growth

....just finished the vid. 2 hrs and down 3k? Wow.

He limps the AA because he expects to be raised by the super agg/loose (in his mind) button, and voila, button obliges. But then he just flats, instead of popping to 200+. Lol.

So are you saying it's totally fine to complain about people with a disorder that they can't control? Are you actually this stupid?

Does this mean youíre going to start defending TBC now? That would be interesting to see.

Your hatred for Trooper is so great that you made it sound like he was making a different point than he was. Why the hate? Apparently defending Trooper means youíre stupid now.

He is just a guy doing what he wants to do and here you are with your hatred over nothing. Perhaps youíre just a jealous hater that would trade places with him in a second if you could.

This was the problem with his entire session. The guy who crushed him would get out of line preflop, but Rampage just assumed that meant he'd get out of line postflop too, which never happened. He always had it.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Rampage is crushing the vlog game.

Without those who disagree with his poker approach, he wouldn’t be inducing this much discussion and mentioning of him. We are all supporters of him, even if some think his game is weak.

It’s funny that there could be a 10x as many discussions about few other vloggers, none of which seem interesting enough to want to see the actual vlog.

First, Trooper complains about the table not being talkative in general. Then he mentions that he thinks 1-2 of the players aspergers. Why? Do you really not see the problem with him singling out the people with aspergers on the table in a negative way?

Defending Trooper doesn't make a person stupid. Trying to pretend his comment was fine is stupid. Your action of defending him here is stupid.

The reason you're actually stupid is your idiotic attempt to somehow shoehorn my point as a defense of TBC. If this is honestly how your mind structures logic, seek help.

He didnít single out anybody. No names were mentioned, no faces were filmed, and we donít even have any evidence those people had Aspergers. Maybe they didnít. I think youíre making a much bigger deal out of this than it is.

Also, I donít recall anyone ever making a huge deal out of this before. He just lost $2k, it was around the time Molly left him, so give the guy a break. You make it sound like he did something terrible.

Iím following your logic to its logical conclusion. You said we shouldnít complain about people with a disorder that they can't control. That means no complaining about TBC.

Hmm...

Trooper could overachieve and still get trashed on here for not putting enough cream in his coffee.

This is exactly the sort of stupidity I was referring to.

Trooper singles out 2 people at a non-talkative table as having Aspergers. He's overgeneralizing about a group based on their negative stereotypes.

You then take my point to mean that I'm defending TBC because he also has Aspergers. From what I gather, TBC is a vocal, antagonistic person who ends up getting banned from casinos. Clearly he's not the same as every person on the spectrum.

Please tell me you see the irony.

Itís interesting to see you switch so quickly from being a fan to a hater. You make it sound like he is a bad person; he isnít.

I didnít say you were defending TBC.

You know what? Youíre right. What Trooper said was horrible and it shows what a terrible person he is. I hope you have a nice day.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Trooper said they have Asperger's in a derogatory way to soothe his ego after it was crushed, pretty obvious. In an earlier vlog he said he "belongs" at 5-10 or 10-20, i forget which, but think it was 5-10, and to be faced with the brutal reality that youre so not ready to play 5-10, when he was anticipating playing so much, and built it up so much in his mind, mustve really stung. Bad news for him: hes further away now than he was then, which is the stark reality of the situation.

Everyone in poker that is better than you is a super nerd, its like the joke about driving. Everyone driving faster than you is a maniac, everyone driving slower is a moron.


Heres a good one: Who would you rather buy a piece of for the main event: The Pman? or The Trooper?

Trooper will tilt it off and Pman will play 2 hours.

Honestly cant figure out what is worse, I guess take Trooper since Trooper has at least a chance to play the length required.

My ex-wife said I have Asperger's after we were already divorced.
Not sure if I do or not. LOL

If Elon Musk can have Asperger's and be a billionaire and at least
top 1% of intelligence I don't know if being told you have
Asperger's is that big of an insult.
