Re: Jaime Staples

Matt on stream today pretty much admitting that there is no chance they can win the bet.

Re: Jaime Staples

Jamie & Matt tilt the **** out of me.... Just clicking buttons whilst firing constant buzz words & lines to make it seem as if what they are doing has logic...

Jamie literally just blew $1,000 buyin with the game plan of calling with any 2 if he may win someones bounty

Also, its very misleading in Jamies Stake Kings profile to say he is a professional tournament player... Your average punter is being lied to when backing him thinking he is a winning player

Lots wrong with your post, and Ill tell ya!

1- His name is Jaime, not Jamie

2-Matt went from 11-50 cent mtt buy ins, to playing up to $215 in under 3 yrs. If thats not good progress what is? The poker stuff he blurtsout is surely better than yours if i had to guess

3-Gonna need you to post hand history to make that claim about Jaime busting the 1k tourney on"going for bounties with any 2" First of all ina bounty there are many spots you need to call with any 2, IF you have over 100 bb and someone shoves 5-6 bigs u should call with 23o to gamble for it as it doesnt hut you one bit but you can claim a good bounty and a good portion of prizepool is in bounties.


4- Jaime has said for a very long time now he is a professional streamer who plays poker, and if people want to buy a percentage they are doing so for entertainment, and gamble which is perfectly fine. Also, people dont back Jaime, they buy a piece for a sweat. Big difference.Jaime does it for his fans to be nice, he can afford everything he plays.

Just as a curious question i must ask you. Do you think Lex is good?Id love to hear your thoughts on him if ya dont mind

Re: Jaime Staples

Matt is actually a winner at the stakes he plays at. Jaime probably is a winner at the same stakes as Matt is playing and a huge dog in anything over $200. And yes the sweat 2 bet is way over at this point and has been for a while. I believe Matt would have made under 10% (unsure if he really wants to go through it at this point).

Feel bad for Jaimie’s anxiety attacks. I’ve dealt with them my whole life. It’s always a struggle.

I've heard it happen to some people who have gambled a lot in their life. The anxiety and stress of winning and losing large sums of money eventually takes its toll on some people, causing them to have panic attacks, irritable mood, mood swings and other symptoms. It doesn't happen to everyone, but some are more susceptible than others.

No longer with Pokerstars. He said it was his decision but I doubt he would give up that guaranteed income.

Re: Jaime Staples

Is he giving up poker completely after this? He's not a winning player, so unless he makes a lot from his twitch stream, he has to give up being a pro.

Re: Jaime Staples

Not surprising for a number of reasons. Who knows what the Pokerstars deals was but I don’t see how he is financially viable just living off poker, twitch and YouTube.

Not really. His already making several FTs on party.

Stars is by far the toughest site, I can see Staples being EV++ on softer sites.

^ But his income from Pokerstars was guaranteed. Zero variance. He gave that up.

Re: Jaime Staples

Not sure about that. The contract between pros and stars is confidential, I always thought was something like 50-100% rakeback and some live packages. Is not like they got a salary.

Edit: Also, probably conditions got worse, as other pros have left stars.

Maybe they told him about the MTT rakeback changes and he didn't like them/want to answer questions on them.

Is it though? You've got 0 idea what his deal was before, and what his new offer was. He knows his worth, he might be **** talked on here but he's pretty popular and marketable to a new consumer.

A few posts up someone says about going to RIO - with their streamer scheme he could make decent bank there, and I would have thought Phil would be happy to take him on as a sponsored pro too.

Being Sponsored by Stars isn't what it used to be - if anything, it can be more damaging to a personal brand than good. If he was only getting offered a poor Rakeback deal and some live packages then he's better off taking his brand elsewhere.

Yes it was a large mistake. if Jaime was leaving poker Id say its fine to branch out to other things in life to do. He still grind some of stars too, and he still streams. Why on earth would he just give away 6 figures a year he was getting for ...... nothing? His life didnt change one bit, he still streams and grinds poker and does nothing different.

The truth is Pokerstars just royally f'd over him on the rewnewel and hes too classy to just come out and say it.

Re: Jaime Staples

I recall him saying back in the day when his stars deal just got done that he got a Salary of 20K per year, rakeback perks , some live MTT opportunities and lets not undervalue the brand credibility he received from working with Stars.

It was a good deal for both parties. Staples probably heard PartyPoker was dishing out more money and just like Professional athletes,

He wants to test free agency

i made some research for you:

the field sizes he made final tables on Partypoker are: 24, 92, 91, 803, 137, 116
(and he's down money, but it doesnt really matter short term)

so he basicly FT-d 1 MTT and 5 sng-s.

Re: Jaime Staples

i mean he's not making FT-s because Party is softer, rather he's making them cause the field sizes are not comparable.

That's not what free agency is.

I wish Jamie the best but it really seems like he squandered a once in a lifetime opportunity. Even compare him to Kevin Martin who massively improved his game and made ~250k last year. Jamie has probably regressed if anything.

He was a well liked sponsored pro. If he put real work into his game he could have really set himself up for life.

Yep, there is roughly equal proportion of fish/regs between the two sites. Fish don't just all flock to Party over Stars. People love to push that narrative on poker forums when it simply isn't true.
