So at 35 hours per week, 4 weeks per month, and 5 full months into the year, Trooper has played 700 hours so far this year -- again, give or take. At his profit of the $4417, divided by 700 hours total, Trooper has made $6.13 per hour on the year. The know-it-alls and haters ITT will say this means Trooper sucks, but I actually think that this number isn't that bad. There's always room for improvement, but like it or not, Trooper is making it work.
That is below minimum wage, after losing 7k last year, so still down for the last 18 months or so. If you consider that success, then well, we have different standards for success and I can't argue against you.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

I really doubt he plays 35 hrs a week. He plays just enough to qualify for the freerolls. Plays enough to satisfy his groupies on Thursday. I envision he only really plays 2-3 hours any other day if you take into account his walks.

Yeah I would set the line at 20 hours per week.

Went to Trooper Thursday a few weeks ago and vlogged some of it. Tim’s a cool guy. Looking forward to going again.

Well said Franchise. Also subtract the money he needlessly spends on food (pack a lunch) and coffee (don't you have a brand?) on the strip and he's probably a net loser since he started playing.

And that 2:47 video someone else posted told me all I need to know: that game is as horrible as I thought it was.

He posted +$85 in the comments, roughly an hour after your post in this thread. Coincidence or proof he reads this thread?

OMC calls all-in with only a draw for half the pot in a double board bomb pot.

How does OMC factor into his comps that chocolate bullshit coffee Troop bought him?

It pained me to see a $30 river bet on a hand where you flopped a flush. It doubled pained me to see that the opponent had also flopped a flush. It triple pained me to see you follow that up by just calling a $30 river bet with a set of Queens.

He's also a professional poker player and sports bettor. No wonder Lockheed Martin reached out to him and not the other way around.

Trooper squeezing a vlog a day out for over a month now. Since there is 0 channel growth it must be for the daily Youtube revenue... Literally no other reason to force out such terrible videos. He has an insanely boring life

Not to mention that he couldn't even tell you a single detail of what that job encompasses. Such job would actually have a title which he can't name.

Gotta let BK be BK.

Trooper comes to Vegas and plays poker almost daily for years without getting any better and his poker skills and results are flat at best (some small wins a few years but over the entire timespan pretty much irrelevant).

He then argues that he didnít come for poker but to make videos. He makes videos almost daily but his channel doesnít grow. I mean heís up to 42K subs but considering itís been so many years and he only gets 10K views per video, his channel is completely flat. In fact, he used to get more views before and is down a lot in terms of views per video from a few years ago.

Whatís the next excuse going to be? He came to Vegas to find a wife? And what happens next? He and Christina officially breakup and he comes up with some other crap excuse?

This is the part that perplexes me the most. All sorts of Vegas content is reasonably big on youtube. Pick a lane.

Make a poker vlog, hotel reviews, gambling videos, food,etc. Trooper had a brand before any of the people in these areas were even around. ****, do multiple of these things across different channels.

"Trooper's top 5 pizza places in vegas" would probably blow his daily vlogs out of the water.
