Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

Became a fan during the Claudico "tie"

Do you believe that playing low stakes for an extended period of time (as I assume you will have to do for your $100 to $10,000 effort) negatively affects how you play at high stakes?

p.s.-- Great stream when I catch it. Never a bad show.

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

Been watching the clips on youtube and whatnot (find it hard to concentrate on hours-long streams) and really enjoying it. Proper engaging and enthusiastic. Whoever does the thumbnails for the youtube vids also deserves a shout.

Love it when Doug goes all 'WHAT' and 'bad reg' when someone calls him with a terrible hand

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DH57XU2vGI

Saw Doug's hand analysis of Galfond/Klein yesterday and while I enjoyed it I prefer The Poker Guys - just like the back-and-forth aspect more. Looking forward to seeing where the channel and content go though!

I have no idea. I'm not sure what the high stakes temperature is like these days on Pokerstars.

I don't think it will change my game at all. I actually play a pretty similar game regardless of game type, because I am a competitive person and I like to win. Also, I am not making any super massive adjustments to the games I am playing (I will make a few small ones). So I think I should be fine after teh challlenge.

Thanks! I try to put on good entertainment for the show.

Thanks dude! The thumbnails are done by SrslySirius, who just the absolute best at them.

I made a couple noob mistakes in that hand (thought it was KJ4 instead of KJ2, did not realize galfond had the Qs), but I still think the analysis was pretty good.

While the back/forth is good, I have no idea who either of the poker guys are. I am not sure how they are qualified to be talking about upper level strategy on their videos (forgive me if they are somehow good/well known players, I am not too familiar with them). I think the back/forth nature takes a way a bit from the learning, although it might add to the entertainment value.

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

Thanks for the reply, Doug.

If you can indulge me in another question, with so few players willing to play heads-up online at high stakes have you given thought to just parking yourself at top-level HU SnG tables forcing people that want to play to go through you? (Would that not be sufficiently profitable because of the small edges if you see yourself as best; or, the number of players in that format that are better than you if you do not see yourself as best?)

Wishing you continued success.

Ta for the reply, dude.

Sorry yeah I should have clarified what I meant by preferring - also I should clarify that I am very much an enthusiastic amateur at poker, as evidenced by my residence in the micro-stakes forums! By preference I meant how their product is presented on youtube - quite fast and loose, a conversational style, laid back, quick transitions in terms of visuals - it's just something I think works well on short-form video content platforms such as youtube where people's attention spans are a lot shorter.

I've no doubt you are more qualified talking about stuff like this than them - I only know them through their channel, dunno how they rank as players - I just prefer how it is presented as a product. I guess it really depends on what the channel's target audience is.

Having said a that, it's great that's your producing this content because it is some of the most engaging, entertaining poker media out there. As said, looking forward to what's coming!

this. Doug is the nuts and I hope he gets more and more exposure. His stream is great fun and I feel like I should be paying a lot more than the 4.99 sub for all the entertainment he provides.

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

vods are unwatchable again.

muted for ~50% of total airtime. Last stream was so tilting to watch even more so since our hero dropped like 35-40k

u gotta fix that tho dougie not everyone can watch live and the true value of subscribing lies within these vods.
