Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Nah, Trooper went I-15 North through Utah and then I-70 East through Denver and Kansas City. He pretty much came back to Vegas the same way, and was in a hurry to do so as Pittsburgh to Vegas was a single vlog.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

This would be a good time for Trooper to get vaccinated and do a "Trooper across America". It's hot as hell in Vegas, it's a good time to get out of Vegas. He should take a completely different route. He could even take an abbreviated "Trooper Across America". Head up to Reno, then into California. Or, go to Texas, and host the world's biggest meet up game in AT&T Stadium (Cowboys Stadium).

She is the x factor and if she tells him to get vaccinated, he would do it.
He voted in 2016. Didnít say who he voted for but when Hillary supporters protested the results, he said people needed to stop whining about the outcome and get over it.

Thatís why there has been some political talk in here. He gets political sometimes. Look at his twitter and occasionally he has something political in there. Same with his vlog in the last year. But whatever, itís just a vlog and Iím not surprised it would happen in times like this.

I don't agree with him politically, but he isn't really extreme or abnormal there, doesn't really bother me.

Mainly disagree with how he wishes death on drunk people on strip and others amazingly negative things he constantly says.

Prefer to use my free time to watch upbeat vloggers loving some Texas hotel casino in Austin and saying hi to people than someone wishing everyone who behaves differently would commit suicide.

Trooper follows Ben Shapiro and Candace Owens on Twitter. He also has some other Twitter follows that betray his political leanings.

He also follows Red Chip Poker....

He may be biased due to the fact that the 3 Vegas rooms that use Poker Atlas have not banned him yet, and he is not allowed to play in most or all of the rooms that use Bravo.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

He's right though. Bravo is a piece of crap compared to Poker Atlas. Can you even add yourself to the lists through the Bravo app yet?

Bravo added that functionality but none of the rooms in Vegas are using it.

From what I have hear Poker atlas is a better app, but when all the popular rooms in Vegas all use bravo and all the players are familiar with it, it is not wise to be the only room besides Sahara and Westgate which struggle to get one or two games on weekends

More expensive than $2700?

I don't have an Apple laptop either due to price point but my laptop cost me $400 and is going on it's 4th year right now without any issues. I don't do super intensive things on it like editing videos so I'm not saying that it would compete with an Apple laptop or with Trooper's $2700 laptop.

It's a no brainer. Trooper should buy one of the new M1 MacBook Pros. Would cost half of what the Dell he is talking about would.

I'm sure Trooper thinks that getting the vaccine is even more like a cult than buying an Apple product.

My past laptops in the $500 range, and main problem is AMD. Need to get the more advanced processors, but then price goes up. I neve have any problem with my desktops.

It has been so long now it is hard to believe that Trooper made some great vlogs several years ago like the Trooper Across America series and his Austria trip..
That's the thing! There is potential from Trooper's vlog to produce some great content that lots of people can get behind. He has the ability to make interesting videos and do interesting things and build his channel but he chooses to not do it. He specifically picks the laziest road to take and puts his head down and just churns out crap videos to say that he did something, even if that something is crap. And then he tries to tell everyone that he tries really hard and gives his vlog everything he has...bullsh*t!

If that was at all true, he would be doing more than waking up, driving to the strip, recording the exact same scenes in the exact same spots, Starbucks run, Taco Bell or Panda Express run, stop by his favorite bakery in Chinatown, three clips of his hole cards which are usually 63o and J4o and not even a hand that he is going to play, and then a rant in the parking lot as he's getting into his car.

It's the classic example of a guy working at the same company for years and years, putting in just enough effort not to get fired, never really trying to do anything new or original or trying to show initiative, and just waiting till the years roll by. And then being proud that he came to work everyday (well most days) as if that's something so remarkable.

Trooper has really got to raise the bar for himself or at least LadyTrooper has to light a fire under his *ss.

Just a basic example: I haven't seen it (might watch the middle for the supposed rant) but if that's a screenshot of his latest vlog a few posts up, the title is "Coffee+Poker" and the thumbnail is him sucking on a lollipop. Really? That's not even half*ssed. That's literally no effort at all! He's on a streak of however many days of consecutive vlogs but I'm pretty sure the quality is so low that he shouldn't even count most of those videos as vlogs.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs

Trooper has definitely upped the quality of his vlogs recently. And right now he's producing his vlogs without his laptop. What an absolute beast. Dude is just killing it. There is not a close 2nd right now.

I see no issue with following Shapiro or Owens. Although Matt Walsh is more my cup of tea.

Tell that to Lady Trooper when he brings home piles of cash after crushing those bots. It beats grinding freerolls after playing with the nitty regs at 1-3, thatís for sure.

Haters gonna hate. Trooper at 10-20 NL would do great.

+1. putting his shitty politics aside he's like a 5'3 120 pound nerd and his voice makes you want to shoot yourself in the head. Even if i was a conservative i would still hate him.

It's not heartless to point out that once you hit 75, you're kinda on borrowed time,
and anything after 80 is pretty much "bonus years" due to good genetics or clean living
No one lives forever. Something takes you out. Hitting 80 is about as good as you can expect.

Shutting down the world since some 80 year olds and obese people were dying of covid was a severe overreaction.
History will laugh at the response. Particularly what we put the kids through.

And oh the irony about YOUR freedoms being imposed on in mid 2021 . . .
We stayed home for a year.
Students lost a year of their childhood and education
Can you imagine if you lost your senior year of high school and had to stay home?
The year you were finally "in charge" or were supposed to be a captain on whatever team you were on
No football games to attend, no prom, no graduation ceremony, no Friday/Saturday nights out with friends? etc.

Can you imagine losing a year of your college experience?
Those 4 years of my life were some of the most exciting and amazing and intense
If I lost one of them and had to stay home and do college on my computer screen?

For what? A virus we knew did not affect their age group?

People put off weddings for over a year, surgeries, chemo appts, countless other events
Hundreds of thousands of families lost their businesses and their livelihoods
Could you imagine the stress of looking at your spouse and saying, "ya, we're not gonna make it, we're gonna lose the house, nor is the business gonna survive, if we cant reopen soon" and then month after month the lockdowns got extended.
The mental health of people being locked away from friends and family and their normal lives
was far more devastating to those under 70 than the virus ever was.

And all that pain for what?
For 70+ year olds who could just have stayed home and let the rest of us go on with our lives?

Talk about wanting to impose on others' freedoms, have you looked around the past year?

And so many still live in fear, it's ridiculous.
Ya kids, wear masks at summer camp even though the odds of you ever having a problem with Covid are literally 1 in a million or less if you're a normal kid with no serious health issues. Wear that mask while running around in 90 degree summer heat and humidity, I'm sure you'll be as happy as ever!

NYC and LA have already said kids will wear masks next school year. You think that's a great idea?

You think it's not fair to talk about the covid response being an overreaction?
I'll give ya the first 6 months of it, but by the end of the summer in 2020, we knew the reality of what was going on. LA county wants the vaxxed to wear masks again. What happened to "follow the science?" It'd be laughable if the power of the govt wasnt behind this ignoring of the science now.

All those people who disagree with you on covid are not extremists or stupid, you just fail to see the validity of those arguments.

Try telling a black family that had family members in this "study" they're anti-science, covid-denier idiots for not getting vaxxed. Or maybe they remember how just a short time ago, Harris and Biden said repeatedly they will not trust a vax created "by Trump" (like he had anything to do with it besides funding the efforts)

https://www.history.com/news/the-inf...tuskegee-study

All you holier-than-thou covid fear peddlers are as bad as the people you label idiots. I'm just glad finally your side is losing the battle and we're not going back. The masses wont put up with it any longer. We gave you a year of our lives we shouldn't have had to. It's over, get vaxxed or stay TF home in fear.
120,000 kids lost primary caregiver, 2.5% of child covid cases require hospitalization, and .8% require ICU.

But this guy really angry he has glass divider at poker table and digging up nearly 100 year old horrible action by US government to prove it.
