A person that plays professionally like BigDog for a source of income, how often is it to have a slump like that? How many months of bills do you have to have saved to afford the swings?

He said he went on a 100k downswing and he survived that, if he survived that a 6k downswing is a piece of cake for him.

He also mentioned he has side businesses like TPE and other things so his sole source of income isn't grinding tournaments. I'd assume his side investments covers his living expenses. He also won over $400K in a week in which he took a year off. IRC he doesn't have to pay tax on that being from Canada...

*I do agree with other posters about his recent comments about the troll, was in bad taste and disappointed in him (not like it matters), the porn etc no big deal at all..... BigDog is over 40 years old and knows better, trolls gonna troll bro.... Anyhow, big fan since day one and always will be, bottom line he's a good dude and deserves his success....<3 #bd55

It's fair to ask whether bigdog is profitable any more. He hasn't won for two and half years and the games are much harder now.

Its really hard NOT to beat tournaments considering its the fishiest poker format, especially for a player who has been successful in them few years back.

I like his stream and have no Problem with underclass behavioure or -speech, but of course not everyone can take it.

If you canīt take this, then just donīt watch, thereīs enough other streamers which may fit your taste.

The reason why bigdog went mad was a troll, telling him heīs 6k down this year.
He went mad over that and called him a f.a.g a view times, nothing really spectacular.
The subject is pretty much solved at this stage, I won't say any more on that, but there is no lingering resentment towards bigdog on my part.

FWIW, I'd only seen him shotgun maybe two beers but I'm willing to accept there was probably more, I just didn't see them.

I was aware of the troll, I think bigdog was entitled to be pissed off at the troll, clearly I didn't like the choice of words but I appreciate that people lose control when riled. And I do watch other streams and my interest in the poker streams is drifting quickly and going towards other games.

Fwiw, again, I still think bigdog is easily the most entertaining streamer of all poker streams because he isn't the corporate whore (apart from his own site) that other streamers are. He generally does what he wants and isn't toadying up to sponsors or telling us what free stuff he is trying to blag. I hope he is streaming again soon because he entertained a lot of people. ETA: He also doesn't use the tedious buzzwords like biebers, flicking it in, vamos etc. every ten seconds which can be more grating than anything else at times (I realise that makes me sound like I am now having a go at Jaime but that's not my intention, I like Jaime and he will most likely be subscribed to at some point in the future when I start liking poker again).

Re: Bigdogpckt5s twitch just been banned?

I feel bad for all the "investors" in his WSOP Main Event Package. He had huge markup, which obviously paid for airfare, hotel, buyin, etc with him having no real skin in the game.

And it looks like he pretty much punted 300 big blinds before Day 1 dinner break. I guess he played the longest, slowest structure tournament of the year like a typical online turbo. Bummer for his "investors".

I didn't "put out" anything. Not like it's a secret or something. If you watch any of his streams or follow his twitter what I said was basically right from his mouth. See link below.

He raised $17,280 while keeping 30% equity for himself, so even after buyin, flight, hotel, he probably came out ahead a couple g's. I think he pretty much skipped town right after busting. And I was mistaken, he limped into dinner break and then went busto shortly after. You can read his tweets, something about getting into a aggro blind vs blind battle (before antes even kicked in I think). Not exactly a ME Day 1 strategy imho, as even a starting stack of 30K is 60bbs at start of Day 2. #justbagandtag

Re: Bigdogpckt5s twitch just been banned?

Don't feel bad for investors who pay huge MU in what is a crapshoot for the most part. Yeah, skill edge is important, but navigating huge fields in one off events is still something that requires a tonne of luck and good fortune.

It's a buyers market.

I wonder if bigdog gunna do the right thing and drop kidcardiff from his coaches listing on TPE after he has been outed as a scumbag scammer. Go to Mtt community for reference.

Re: Bigdogpckt5s twitch just been banned?

I mean, FWIW, I generally consider selling shares at a big MU as a bit scummy. It means you're either delusional about your own edge or you want to lure in suckers who don't understand variance, or both.
But whatever, as bhoy said, it's a free market, if someone wants to buy who am I to argue about it.
Most of us don't have the time or the interest to follow other ppls lives en detail on twitter or wherever, that's why providing some cliffs about accusations is not a bad idea.

TPE is filled with garbage coaches so it wouldn't be surprising if they kept cardriff on

'Accusations' is probably not the right word choice in this case, but I know what you mean.

1,6 MU?! you gotta be ****** kidding me:O whoever staked him ,bigdog must be laughing his ass off

btw. i agree, that MU is total scam. i know alot of very good players who dont take MU because its scummy. you can read in every staking-forum that guys with absolutely no live experience take 1,1MU which is kinda ridicilous imo.

but as long as it works....why not,right

Read on his Facebook today that he got poison ivy all over his body while doing yard work. Would make a great stream.

It's part true. The actual story is he got poison ivy all over his penis/scrotum while hiding in some bushes and masturbating.

Works out at 1.73 after the fees the site takes.

Think you pulled that 17k number out of him selling 100% he only sold 70% so got $12096 i make it and 30% freeroll.

Seems his twitch viewership has the added bonus of getting investors who have no clue they are being totally scammed and can sell at markup like that.

Sounds like a standup guy.

Is the dog still streaming? I haven't watched any streaming for a month or so. I have occasionally looked at the list in the mornings but he's never there.
