re: Jaime Staples

Cant anyone buy a ticket? And makes sense not being in the panel. There is the most popular streamer carver, prolly the best mtt player who streams tonka and a hot chick that works for pokertv. Why would they stapler who is on a decline.

re: Jaime Staples

He mentioned on his stream that he was not invited to be on the Poker Panel this year. He sounded disappointed.

And most of the things are already in this thread. Its very hard to stream when u're losing, and its pretty normal that trollcount will go up... but the way Jaime handles that loses him normal viewers... he should just tell the haters to f off, just ban them the second they write their first comment. Going into submode after few trolls kills the twitch atmosphere, and u got only balllicking chat going on + u cant even type - so its not very enjoyable from my point of view (and probably most of 'normal' viewers who arent either trolls/haters or subs/balllickers.)
Also I dont understands why he didnt stream yesterday nor today, when few days ago he said in his vlog during wcoop that is so hard to get viewers when all big streamers are out there. So wcoop is over, all big streamers took break and ... he just doesnt stream. He would be easily top1 again with like 10x more viewers than 2nd yesterday and today, playing whatever stakes. And he just skip that.
Its hard to compete with tonkaaa, jcarvs or doug when theyre out, but there is still room to grow/stream between them, and it just looks like Jaime is giving up on the dream.
Banning people and censoring comments just because you disagree with them is not the way to go. It will alienate even more viewers.

There is really no problem with criticism, as long as it is both justified and true. The two main criticisms Jaime is receiving are that he's on a very large downswing and he needs to lose weight. Both of these things are true and justified. And many people are saying them.

Jaime needs to take this criticism on board and do something about it. I don't understand how someone can go on an almost $70,000 downswing and not work on their game off the tables to see what's going wrong.

Its just one of the ways he could solve chat problem, I think its much better than running submode all the time. Some ppl take criticism very good, or they just dont care or they troll chat back, I feel like Jaime isnt that kind of guy so maybe its not that bad idea... and if he loses haters from chat its hard to call it alienating viewers, its only small fraction of viewers and not like any1 will cry after them.

For me, the ppl who come to some1s twitch channel only to write him that his fat or he needs to lose weight have some personal problems themselves its probably not very happy times to stream on ds and read all this bull**** stuff, after all its his channel, if he has problem with that why not ban all the haters. And the ds thing, cmon, he played many 1ks, i think even 5ks and he def wasnt winning in these fields, add to this std tournament variance and **** can happen. But cmon, beating on some1 who is having hard poker times is rly ****ty. The variance in tournaments he plays is sick. If u dont like stream, just dont watch it, the negative audience sucks in twitch cause they have voice and they kinda ruin chat for every1.

re: Jaime Staples

Martin and Staples having problems in paradise lol For some reason I felt tension between them for the last little while... He didn't explain why and I normally don't watch the vlogs but the title stream house coming to an end I had to watch...

Seen that one coming tho... No idea what they have to be mad about lol They are very lucky people imo

2 poor poker players... Sponsored by pokerstars, getting paid to stream poker... They should be grateful

If I was to guess probably Staples is jealous of martins success over the past while and his success is dropping.. All issues probably stems off of that

re: Jaime Staples

Actually watched kevmarts stream today while grinding myself because eu streams were dead and someone asked where is jaime and he quickly answered hes around and rapidly changed the subject. Thought a second troubles in the paradise and guess so. Feels kind of bad if thats really the case. Everything starting to crumble around him.

At some point they were even moving to europe w/ tonka and others. Then just in canada and now this.

There's also jeff gross practising avoidance. He was supposed to join in a while ago.

The house must be quite expensive, add to that the daily 15-30$ meal + tax + tips and 20-30$ in cigs. They are close to having financial problems.

Wow, haven't been watching for a while now, so I hadn't noticed any tension. But I'd noticed that Jaime and Kevin had started to stream at the same time, which they never used to do before. And didn't someone say that Kevin actually hosted Doug Polk instead of Jaime at one time?

That's pretty cold. Pure speculation, but not being able to come to an agreement about who can stream when, while the market's saturated market, and while they're both trying to hold onto their cash cow Stars sponsorships seems like a very possible reason there might be tension. Jaime seems like he'd want a more cooperative schedule, while Kevin probably thinks it's every man for himself.

If Kevin's going to be like that, Jaime has no choice but to do the same, which would be stressful if that wasn't the way he wanted to do things. But if that's the way things are going to be, he should make sure that if there's only room for one so-so sponsored twitch pro from Canada, that it's him. Squeeze him out Staples!

Tonkaaa is not making 10gs a month of twitch... Probably half that... As for your other comment like buddy said... Jaime hasn't streamed in 2 weeks so he will get more subs in his first couple days as he hasn't played in so long... So quite standard

Ive talked to buehlero before who is a decent streamer for nighttime viewers... He said he makes 200 bucks a month of twitch... They make money of subs which they get half of and donations thats it...

So tonkaaa is at 5k maximum... Thats on the high end... Probably more like 3 to 4

With staples viewers down... So would be his subs and donations... Id say he's in the range of 1500 to 2500 a month nowadays
Anyone who is partnered is making a lot more than $200 per month if they're streaming regularly. buehlero has over 100 subs so that's over $250 right there just in subs.

There are several monetization avenues available to streamers aside from subs & dono's. Ad revenue, sponsorship/paid appearances & merchandising are the common ones. But to make it work you have to have a lot more dedication than a stream or two per week. You don't necessarily have to be great at the game you're playing, but it helps a lot if you are (especially for poker streamers). What you DO have to be, is entertaining & engaging. Building a community and brand takes a lot of time and effort, and if you don't keep at it, someone else will come along and snatch your viewers which has happened to Staples. It might happen fast, or it might be a slow bleed, but you can't sit back and relax. Staples should be streaming 5-6 days/week if he wants to keep up.

The only justification would be building your brand with professional content. But even then that level of expense seems premature for where his channel is.
Most Youtubers who are putting up daily videos with 10k-15k views are editing themselves because that's not enough to live on, let alone hire someone to do it. That's hobby-level. For perspective, I know of a large gaming channel (over 5M subs, >500k views/day) and he just this year hired someone full time to edit his videos. (thank god b/c it was my daughter, and I was getting tired of subsidizing her twitch/youtube career.)

Bottom line, online entertaining is an extremely competitive arena. It's easy to be positive when you're succeeding and at the top. And it's also easy to get down and depressed when your popularity and viewers are dropping. You gotta fight hard if you want it because there's a thousand others nipping at your heels to take it away from you.

Whatever happened to Stapler moving to Prague? I though that was a given about 6-12 months ago.

I feel bad for him that he's fallen out with Kevin. The stuff regarding his downswing and weight is laziness/bad work ethic, so the criticism is justified. But this is a different issue entirely. I hope they work things out. I agree that everything is starting to crumble around him.

I don't understand how anyone can say it's just a downswing. It's clear to every rational person that jaime is not a winning player anymore (regardless of how much he won in the past) and needs to seriously work on his game. Jaime is surrounding himself with people (the mods + fanboys) who tell him what he wants to hear, not the actual truth. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. This is why he needs an advisor or life coach, like someone else pointed out.

Jaime looked like a wreck after the kmart fallout / vlog .. Jaime needs to step out of his bubble and get into the real world .. Could you imagine how stapler would react if his gf (who will likely take his vcard) broke up with him ?? good thing it was kevin and hopefully he gains experience from this //because the way he took the kmart situation it wouldn't be pretty and i would be worried for jaime ... Stapler step up man ..

very true man... Staples would be scary depressed if that happened to him... I lived with my friends for a few years and had our share of arguments as well but when you're bros, you're bros... It always works out

Staples needs some pussy in his life I think... He's a good guy, a vehicle, probably a somewhat attractive job to certain females... The guy could get laid man if he knew how to play the game...

Staples if you read this... Go out and get some vagina... Some pussy does wonders for a man in a life slump... Actually dead serious here.. A man in his early 20s has to get laid from time to time

Telling a morbidly obese young man to "go out and get some pussy"... Bruh.

btw, I don't get the him-paying-for-youtube thing. He can't learn to edit himself? It would be worth his time to do so. The hourly of whoever makes those youtube videos is >$0, and Staples winrate is <$0, so it's a double win if he took some playtime and learned editing instead.

Hope he binks something soon. Or something.
