I stated facts not opinions .

Please argue the points you disagree with rather than making lame insults .

This whole jaime staples cult is odd , anytime someone states something people dont wanna hear they get super offended .

Why don't you guys who pay 25%+ markup ask him to unlock his sharkscope graph to see how good of a deal you guys are really getting .

you are acting like stars is like"Jaime go promote powerups!!!" Anyone who is signed on stars is probably contractly supposed to play some of them and talk good about them to bring people to the game format to make it grow. Singling Jaime out is just unfair. You are judging and saying hes paid ONLY for that.
What about all the free streams he's done? what about all his kindness he shows everybody everyday? or him bringing in new players?
-He gets paid a salary to just be good for the company but of course a clown like you will focus on the negative parts on the company and try to get mad at Jaime about it.

ITs ok to say something or disagree but people like you just like to speak hate. The guy had so much success and better'd his life more than anybody could imagine. You are a jealous hater

Jaime stated numerous times when he sells its for the experience and for fun, people know that going in. My lord you are so slow

99% of the people buying Jimmys action know that there are better people to back on Stake Kings. They do it for the fun sweat on stream, not to make the big bucks.

Jamie isn't exactly going round telling people to invest because he's a Poker god....

Nowadays that's true but back in the day it wasn't . He went on a 60-70k upswing and once things started going south he blocked his stats and made no mention of this downswing which is kinda misleading imo .

claiming to be a ''professional poker player'' implies he makes living from poker when in reality he makes a living off twitch + stars sponsorship + stakekings.

It's fine if people wanna invest in him w/ a negative expectation but it would have been nice if he was honest/open about it .

I'm not a hater but I do have a biased view against anyone who's sponsored by stars , their employer comes first and their fans/viewers come second .

Claiming to be a professional poker player while promoting formats not even top regs can make a living at is extremely deceitful .

I'm glad to see him losing weight and outside of poker he seems like a cool guy but I can't say i respect the fact he's sponsored by stars when he could have made it on his own by studying/grinding hard , instead he became complacent .

Professional Poker Player implies he plays Poker for a living. He wouldn't get sponsored by Stars or have SK or Twitch income if he didn't so I'm not sure what else he's supposed to say his profession is?

Re: Jaime Staples

Jamie IS a professional poker player.

How good he is at it a totally different matter.

I dont think Jamie set out to deceive anyone, his upswing caused him to overestimate
his real abilities. When he went on that big downer it probably seemed to him like he was just super unlucky when in reality it was more a true reflection of his real abilities.

He did eventually realize it and has spent more time studying and trying to improve his game. And when I say game , I mean his ENTIRE LIFE game.

I suspect that the majority of guys that give sponsored by Pokerstars guys grief would be more than happy to take that money if they could get it, but they cant.

Kind of like the guys who cant get a date with the pretty girl so they call them whores or sluts.....sound familiar?
