I know, right?

I have had to stop following him on Twitter. I'm not a violent person, but his demeanor makes me want to strangle him.

Who started down the crypto path first? Doug or Alec ?

Doug obviously, unless you're being sarcastic and I'm just too much of a lurker to get your humor.

It's so ironic and perhaps even humorous that Alec Torelli would end going down the same road as Doug in the end (or attempting to). I assume he felt too distanced from the poker community after this whole angle incident to keep too within the poker community any further.

Not to say Doug necessarily did too much to add to the community response - Alec was the one who angled obviously. Its just so funny to see Alec try to do the same exact gig as the guy he blamed all the outrage on. Too bad for him that, especially with so little views as of now (133), that it's probably not going to take off much, if at all. All his "cred" is poker related and he's not even an okay content creator to begin with imho.|


Also funny to see his Wikipedia page now too. It could be better worded though like:

"Following the hand, Torelli stated that he used his opponent's surprise at the discovery of the high-value chips as a "read" to determine that his opponent's hand was mediocre. Later, Torelli posted a video on YouTube faulting his opponent for not knowing his chip stack size." I feel it should be added that he also faulted Doug Polk for the incident, as that's what he mostly did. The earlier Wikipedia edit battle history from earlier is hilarious if you look at that as well.

All this is so incredibly ironic when you consider he could've so so easily have resolved the situation in a better way. This could've blown over in a day or two if handled appropriately. All over a measly 10k to a "high stakes pro." Even in raw equity! His wiki would be way more impressive to potential players, backers, etc. at a glance. Still amazed he didn't budge. What a guy...

He was annoyed only that he passed up hitting on a hot blonde, by following her into the Portuguese class, because he lacked perspective on life and took Spanish:

"So when it was time to register for the class, we were standing outside, ready to go into the classroom, when this pneumatic blonde came along. You know how once in a while you get this feeling, WOW? She looked terrific. I said to myself, "Maybe she's going to be in the Spanish class - that'll be great!" But no, she walked into the Portuguese class. So I figured, What the hell - I might as well learn Portuguese.

I started walking right after her when this Anglo-Saxon attitude that I have said, "No, that's not a good reason to decide which language to speak." So I went back and signed up for the Spanish class, to my utter regret." ....

"So I learned how to look at life in a way that's different from the way it is where I come from. First, they weren't in the same hurry that I was. And second, if it's better for you, never mind! So I gave the lectures in the morning and enjoyed the beach in the afternoon. And had I learned that lesson earlier, I would have learned Portuguese in the first place, instead of Spanish. "

I think Alec has a decent shot at being pretty successful at this, and certainly far more so than he ever was at poker.

1. The niche is just blowing up right now. Even the crappiest content creators are managing to get some growth and attention. It's incredibly soft out there.

2. He will be more motivated. Alec grinded for years on his poker channel with very little success. He'll most likely get better results in crypto immediately.

3. Alec is a slimey, shameless used car salesman, which makes this environment perfect for him. This is the wild west, with many gullible viewers blinded by greed. Alec will exploit them to the fullest.

In a nutshell. I actually try to watch his stuff and like him. Unlike some people who seem a douche and then you get to know a bit about them and you find out they're okay, he just carries on being a douche. It's really hard to find much affection for the guy.

Lol, good point.

However, his name naturally lends itself well to diversifying into all kinds of professions and industries if one such as Crypto goes out of vogue or becomes unviable.

AcTorelli
RealTorelli
SculpTorelli
NATOrelli

His poker and general life advice videos are worth watching IMO because he does have some high level thinking in many areas that one can learn from or consider.

Separating what one might think about his poker etiquette/conduct etc from the value, relevance and benefit of his poker and life related output is worthwhile IMO.
