Hopefully he doesn't forget to make it look like he is going out of town the day after the vlogger game to keep his story alive.

Or maybe he has made up something to go to for real to cover this.

He was suggesting that he would want to play in the vloggers game, but it was too bad that he wasn't invited and will be far away from Vegas when it happens.

Just so happens the Vloggers game is far away from Vegas too! (Sacramento)

That is by far the worst of all his excuses. Like I said at the time: no one wants to go to Sacramento if they don't have a reason to, but he made it sound like he couldn't play in the game just because he won't be anywhere near Vegas the next day like that has anything to do with it whatsoever.

It's dumb things he says like that that make him lose credibility when he's trying to explain away other things...

How can Trooper "not risk the loss" in a Vloggers game when there's -$1k/week dumpings almost regularly? If he can honestly afford these swings in some of the most tourist/beginner filled games where he was "Down 1700 at one point" then he can afford a few BI in a game with expenses covered. He originally said that he had "somewhere to be" that day or the day after. Lets see what happens with that.

It isn't a "money" thing, it's more like knowing it would turn into a 5-7 on 1 bullying at the table type of thing.

If he's losing $800 to terrible players at 1/2 how much do you expect he'll might lose to pros in a $5/$5 game? Dude's ship is going down. He definitely can't afford to lose in a game that big now.

If he was going to be bullied at the table it would only be because:

1. He's obviously scarred money and the proper strat against scared money is to torture them with aggression.

2. He says something dumb/rude/embarrassing and either Kevin or Jeff give him the business for it which isn't bullying.

No one is going to or has been picking on or bullying Tim. Jeff is trolling him but he's hardly said anything about Tim that isn't said much ruder and cruder in his YT comments.

Trooper doesn't think of himself as a fish. Would he even admit to himself that he would be the fish in a vloggers game? He thinks he can easily beat 2-5 and at least some 5-10 games.

Just ask Danny Ainge.

They should give him a second reserved seat so he can invite a plus-one whose presence will make him feel more relaxed.

Trooper's life has become a real-life Truman Show.. just like Jim Carrey's character, he is ready for the series to be cancelled..

Heading to Vegas in 3 weeks. I plan to blow 5k. I don't have time to find Trooper's 1/3 game but if he reads this thread he has an open invite to the Rhino with me and the homies and an hour in VIP with the dancer of his choice.

Hit me up Troopaloop!

People really enjoy using the term cesspool when referring to this thread.

Love Boski's style. Next time I'm in town we need to hit up the Palomino or any spot you think is good for a daytime hit and run.

Inquiring minds need to know did you and PK hit up the club after BBQ?

Sorry maybe I should use a different term but it's like watching Maury Povich or something. It's textbook schadenfreude. Not sure what's the point of knocking people down regardless if they put this up for display. It's much more enjoyable to find the positives in what people have to share with others.

Everything he ask for or sells in his vlog is for the Las Vegas Boxer Rescue.

Do you even philanthropy, bro?

I just find it odd that you come into the thread to make a positive comment, but feel the need to make a negative comment about where you are posting it. You're not the only one, so I'm not specifically calling you out on it. I just find it strange is all. Seems to defeat the purpose of taking the stance of someone who is above criticizing others....

It's called "virtue signaling". By appearing to have the moral higher ground (defending someone), these people hope that their opinions are more valid than people with lower moral ground("hating on Trooper").

I don't know I guess I'm glad I found this post in this thread from what appears to be a new vlogger. To me this is what this thread should be about. However most of this thread is about people finding negatives to bash people on that have vlogs, I don't see the point. Especially all the stuff about Trooper it's repetitive and adds nothing.
