Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Without going back and looking, has pman ever solicited advice from this thread? He's responded to advice given, but I don't recall him ever asking for it. Seems silly to get upset about someone not taking your advice if they didn't ask for it in the first place. Also seems silly to repeatedly give the same advice, solicited or not, when someone doesn't listen to it.

Pretty sure pman said he is still on the plus side playing poker, so not sure what all the hand wringing is about. He's obviously not going to be a poker pro, but hopefully he's enjoying his time in Vegas, however long it ends up lasting.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

In his PGC thread he asked for positive advice and constructive criticism on his videos, poker, and life. It is true that he seems to not pay any attention to it and just does what he feels, which is fine, but why ask in the first place?

At least for me the hand wringing is someone stating they want to do something, asking for you to follow, etc... then just not even try. We have 0 proof that Pman can even beat 1/2 over a decent sample. Would someone try to make a living as a golfer if they don't know whether they can even break par? Would they then play very little, not practice, and play video games for months on end and say, well it disappoints me, but apparently I can't play golf to pay the bills? Or would they already know they can shoot a certain score, then they play every day, spend hours on the range, hours on the putting green, work with their instructor, spend time in gym, etc...?

There are several "personalities" in it, which includes several streamers that have very little poker experience. I would assume a few people are being put into the tournament by the organizers or a sponsor, with Brad being one of them.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Sometimes you have to take a step back before taking two steps forward. If this is his version of college theres going to be ups and downs and theres going to be mistakes he makes, thats just the nature of life, hes still a young guy, has all the time in the world to do whatever he wants to do.

Would it have been better if he listened to the collective advice? Yes of course, but you have to go through it sometimes before you can really know. Thats the point of trying to give him all of our advice, so he doesnt have to face the same adversity that we have faced or know exists. How did we collectively learn what to do? Most likely from experience, at least thats been the best teacher for me. Hes going to learn from his initial foray into it, and come out stronger for the next attempt if thats what he chooses to do. All about evolving and growing as a person, now is the time for growth for him as he contemplates things he did well, what went wrong, and what to do from here. Its a lonely and arduous climb back up the mountain, that he really hasnt even started yet, the post going broke plan making haze is still fresh on him, will have to wait a month or two of grinding it back before he really starts. Gotta commend him on the honesty.
