Great job, Rayz!

Does this count toward the challenge?

Nice work mang. Stuck to your guns and finished chip leader. Wish it played 5/T but was still entertaining.

Re: STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

Thanks guys. Appreciate ya. To the contrary of what others think, I stand by ALL my plays.
The AA and KK hands were in ep and expecting a 3 bet from the 3betters (Neeme, Owens, Charles, Boski) in lp and both times they let me down. So the line didn't work out, but still stand behind my decisions.

We made money and that's all that matters.

Appreciate the rail for tuning in. Thanks a lot!

Great result last night Rayz!!! That's all that matters! Although I'm not sure I've seen a hand create quite a buzz as your KK hand. The poker world is talking! "His range is AA to AA" they're all wanting explanations & interviews on this one lol. Way to rep HSI! Have a safe flight home

I believed i was up against 2 pair. When @hello7027 leads ott, he I feel he is repping 2 pair or Flush draw. I think @Hello respects my play, and once he calls me otf and leads turn into 2 players it felt strong. Once seat 1 calls his bet, I fig one of them had me beat. I was wrong.

AA and KK I flatted pre thinking one of the aggros in lp wd 3bet light, then I cd rip a 4 bet. Both times I was wrong again.

I think he has quite a good understanding of the game but perhaps just because he's explaining concepts to live players it might sound as though it's dumbed down a bit? idk lol. There's definitely one or two vids of him expressing extremely in-depth analysis about ranges.

Glad you made it home safe.
But That Chek Charles guy blasting you on another thread. He Talking about you being too serious, wearing glasses, and not providing entertainment in the vlogger game.
Who does this douche think he is?
You got anything to say. I'll be glad to relate it back. Your famous words of BMOC, he thinks he is that.

When commentating, you have to keep things a bit more simple for the audience. They're not going to understand 3rd or 4th level thinking, nor should you want a commentator talking that way on a free broadcast.

Rayz, did you ever get an answer from anyone why the guys didn't play 5/5/10?
I've seen some shots fired to Bart Hanson but the short trip was also very profitable, so overall, did you have a good time? Would you do it again?

I hv no clue why they didn't want to play higher. I wanted to play serious poker and others wanted to play carnival games. In the end, I told them I wd go w the flow. Maybe I'm in the minority camp of people wanting to watch high level poker. But mainstream seems to b WSOP comedy coverage w Norm to stupid spin the wheel promos at local casinos. I just wanna play poker and it be taken seriously without making it look like a clown's game.
Yeah I hv no clue who this Bart guy is, but astonished he has a reputable training site. I hv trouble explaining my higher levels of thinking to people, but I can tell he seems to b low level. If he wanted me in the booth I wd hv tried to explain away some of my thought process, but that kind of stuff is hard for me. I always felt poker is a game where most of it can't b taught. Certain people know what I mean.
Fun? I had a great time. Winning makes everything more fun.
Do it again? Maybe. I wdn't b changing who i am for the sake of everyone else. If they don't want me, I cd care less. I don't take this kind stuff too seriously. It's almost embarrassing to b a Vlogger. But we continue on.

Re: STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

I honestly would have preferred the vlogger's game to play like LATB. I think you played fine and it was decently entertaining. I think Charles over compensated by 3betting so much with such marginal hands. I would have liked to see everyone playing well trying their best taking it seriously as there would have been entertainment value in that competition aspect alone. You booked a solid win, no shame in that!
