Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs (NO 2017 REG ACCOUNTS)

I wonder how Trooper will censor the people playing in his Westgate games like he does with all the comments on YouTube. Will he be allowed to ban anyone who criticizes him?

Also, clearly it would have to be a small room that decides to risk having him host a game but he might run into issues with out-of-towners showing up to an off the strip room like Westgate. Everyone would have to either take the monorail (which isn't really a popular travel option on the strip) or an Uber/Lyft to even get to the game.

Neeme was smarter in hosting his games at places like Monte Carlo, Mandalay Bay, and the Mirage which was much more accessible to tourists since they were all on the strip.

Also, I wonder what sort of risk the poker room is taking to host these games? Do they put any money in advertising his presence, do they offer anything special, and what do they do if he starts cursing or flipping out at someone who triggers him?

I wonder if any other rooms were considered in him trying to set up this game. It seems that he has bad mouthed pretty much every other room in town in his past videos so Westgate is probably the best bet since it's so new and he's only played there a few times so far. I'm sure he will blow this opportunity pretty quickly though in typical Trooper fashion.

Also curious what the Mr Dorson angle is (assuming it's not something totally unrelated ). I'd take a wild guess at a similar promo and *maybe* focusing on the German player-base that doesn't overlap with Trooper.

Mr. Dorson is a great guy. I wish he was still doing English language vlogs. He seems like he's a really good player too.

A public comment on Trooper last vlog ....
"Well we know there will be at least one fish at that table every Thursday."

Like one of these maybe?

Technically I'm not sure he can even claim credit for that as apparently it isn't a poker vlog according to Trooper.
