Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Trooper is scraping by. I refuse to believe he is making much money from his website anymore. Spending a huge amount of each video pushing his girlfriends lollipops (Lol), Doesnt make money from Poker. Youtube isnt paying much for those views.

Did he leave his nice house to move to a slum again?

Give it 6 months and he is back working a dealer job

Getting a dealer job for Trooper would actually be the smartest thing he can do right now.

1. Steady income for piece of mind plus for apartment applications, contributing to his social security, and all that "average, normal people" jazz

2. Would make more money hourly than he makes from all of his other ventures and he could still do the Thursday game, coffee, hats, YouTubes, and breakeven poker as a hobby

3. Health insurance! This is a big one especially at his current age. He's right around that time when you need annual physicals and you never know when something pops up that will be covered by insurance but dozens of thousand of dollars out of pocket without insurance.

I know several people who have a job just for the health insurance make sure they hit their minimum hours to qualify for the company health insurance for their families. In fact, I know a few poker dealer that deal just enough hours to get the health insurance as their main priority.

The problem is that he keeps telling his vlog that he is "the boss" and won't work for "the man" so taking a job would be admitting defeat and his ego is too big and his skin too thin to do that.

As a side note, his gf just got a job finally herself so she might be pushing him to do the same since they are no longer just dicking around all day while pretending to be brand ambassadors and YouTube stars.

Where did you see this about Lady Trooper getting a job? I guess the eviction moratorium can take down a real estate queen like Lady Trooper.

Watched a Trooper video and it was in the comments section referring to her vlog so I checked her vlog to make sure and she explains that she got a new job and that's why she hasn't been vlogging much recently because she's been in training for 5 days straight for the new job and is about to start another 5 straight days of training.

I figure if she's doing a 9-5, 5 days a week, she'll probably want to spend evenings and weekends with Trooper since that is her only time off but that's his usual ranting on the strip about bad coffee time so she might push him to get a 9-5 job so that they are on the same schedule. That's usually how couples and relationships work.

This is so true. The average poker player doesn't
even pay attention to the rake. But it adds up so fast.

I agree. Just getting a little part time work would do wonders I think. Even if it is just a day or two a week and can make enough to pay the rent each month. No need to be all prideful and try to beat your head against a wall. It seems that he is a pretty good dealer and it would be fairly easy money to sit and deal for 4-8 hours a couple times a week. You could always sign up for early outs and go play sessions afterwards. If it means putting up 1 less vlog per week, well he is going to make more dealing than he does off that 1 vlog.

Wonder if her getting a job also coincides with his new stop loss. She may be allowing him to continue to play as long as he has certain parameters. At this point it would seem that he is basically listening to a boss and working for very little money. Would be smart to get a part time dealing gig.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Him getting a part time job, eg: being a dealer, would be admitting to himself and everyone on 2+2, that he failed.

If he had that kind of courage/discipline, he wouldn't be where he is now in the first place.

However Lady Trooper may be the new variable that changes him for the better. It's never too late fwiw.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Let me see if, I get this straight:

According to TheTrooper, these things are contemporaneous:

1. Taco Bell has some world class food and
2. His girlfriend's lollipops are the greateset sweet know to man and
3. Trooper never lies to us, he is the epitome of honesty.

Something doesn't compute.

Maybe, he's a lying sack of shyte.

Also, what happened to his love of Blind Squirrel Apparel? He gushed about how cool it looked and it's super high quality above competitiors, but he never wears it or talks about it anymore?

My impression is that Trooper had a 1000 bucks stoploss for a good while?

At least he always "brags" about only bringing 1 dime when he goes out to play, and that he refuses to use casino ATM.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Also maybe this narrative that Trooper isn't working for the "man" needs to end.

He's literally trying to sell advertisements and products on massive conglomerate. An affiliate for a poker room. Marketing coffee. NOT making money playing poker.

He is literally working for the man, just at really low rates that Youtube/Google unilaterally assign to him with their advertisers and algorithms. lol

He's got less freedom than if he worked for a 9-5 that would start and end and could take days off. He's tied down to this endless barely get by youtube cycle.

Not only should the narrative end, it should have been done years ago. Trooper will never admit this though. Never.

Yeah, I work for the the man. I have more freedom, and make more money than The Trooper could ever dream of. All I need to do is log in the 3 meetings/week (and if I miss a few nobody would care). I can take all the vacations, that my heart so desires. I can do whatever I want, even eat Taco Bell at 10:00 in the evening!

(Maybe, I shouldn't post after taking Ambien).

Everyone knows that freedom is define by what time you wake up and whether you want to play poker that day.

I'm sure Pman, BikeKing, Matty V, Vibes, and the usual targets etc are enjoying the Trooper talk.

It's something Jaman could charge for but I'm sure a few dinners would get it done.

Looks like they just had fun cause other 2+2er's they met at side table.

We didn't factor that into our evaluation on Trooper Thur.... like minded people who all want to destroy trooper meet and hit it off!
