Re: Live at the Bike

Finally had to give up on LATB and unsubscribe. Really miss the old days ( One year ago?) and the old commentators (at least most of them). The show is just not for me anymore. Just one opinion.

Re: Live at the Bike

Ryan,

Can you get some more monthly schedules up in advance so that those who'd like to make a road trip can plan accordingly?

Re: Live at the Bike

I canceled my subscription recently. I liked seeing low stakes players (someone I could relate to) playing live on stream. Now the games are too big that I know longer have that connection that I could be (and have) been one of those players.

Re: Live at the Bike

I loved Limon, and hope that eventually he could come back in a limited commentator role, but I think the product has gotten much better with Ryan at the helm.

Depends on what you're looking for I guess. I play 2/5 and 5/10 and like seeing the bigger games, and the Doug Polk weeks, Mike the Mouth, Cate Hall etc. I guess I view the product as more entertaining than educational.

The 5 hour $25/50 Friday shows are worth my sub alone. Also, while I liked Limon, he basically did no strategy or hand for hand commentary. The new people he's brought in, and himself, are very good at actual poker-hand commentary

Re: Live at the Bike

I still subscribe to the LATB twitch channel, but canceled my LATB direct sub.

The last few shows I've tuned into it seems to me the commentators are more interested in regaling us with their personal stuff than commenting on the hands. I was very interested in seeing the last PLO game, but soon turned the sound off - nothing much being said about the actual hands and the play.

When the guys actually pay attention to the game they can add value. But not sure how often that happens.

Re: Live at the Bike

Cancelled my LATB subscription.

Really enjoyed Limon's color commentary and Pokersesh. Just bring him back please!

The low stakes games were more enjoyable and I could relate to them and actually learned a lot. I guess if they had more variety in their line up, it would have been worth renewing.

I prefer LHE show more regularly. Love Matt Boyd. And I agree with the comments above that LATB is significantly drying up and LATB should be thinking bring back limon

I only watch clips they post on Youtube and its so tiring. A lot of the comments agree. 'So I was having lunch yesterday with Mr. Blah blah blah -- oh wait, whats going on here?'

Re: Live at the Bike

Does Brian consistently run up ridiculous stacks or is he buying in super deep? I've seen him many times with $40k+ at 25/50 with other players having way less.

I wonder how many players have gone to the bike just because of LATB being televised

Re: Live at the Bike

Was that MJ guy for real tonight in trying to get the WSOP bet down?
Listening to that was F-ing BRUTAL.

9 players, Feldman offers 5 player to 4. No
Feldman at one point offers him pick 1,3,5,7. No
Feldman offers him to go first snake draft, even money. No
MJ counters with getting the first pick in a snake, and getting 1.6 to 1 odds

Jesus christ, dude

The calendar will be consistent going forward:
- Tuesday: 5/10 NL
- Wednesday: rotation of games
- Thursday: 5/5/5 ante game
- Friday: 25/50 NL
- Starting in September, we will likely be having 5/5 NL every Monday

Ryan,

Begging for donations is a really bad look for your show.

Reading comprehension? What are you talking about? They spent 20 minutes begging for donations during their live show last night. It was gross.

He's not lying- I heard them repeatedly ask for donations as the show was winding down, saying they would do "overtime" if they got enough donations. And quite a bit more stuff like " we are a small business, send donations". It seemed a lot like begging to me.

Agree to disagree then. I don't think asking for donations is begging.

Re: Live at the Bike

Ryan you haven't responded to the people (including myself) who were asking about bringing back the lower stakes games (1/3, 2/5, etc). Lots of people subscribe because they can invison themselves being in that game. It loses the allure to me at least when the stakes are as high as they've become.

Re: Live at the Bike

Honestly the guy playing 100VPIP and some of the fun story lines that develop in the 1/3 games were always very cool. It gave low stakes grinders like myself a chance to play on stream and that's a really cool experience. It wouldn't be hard to bring that back for 1 night a week with Limon on commentary. It may be a different audience than the higher stakes shows but I know for a fact that a number of my friends signed up just to watch me when I was on the show.

Re: Live at the Bike

I enjoy the larger stakes as much as the next guy but a nice mix of lower stakes (1/3, 2/3, 5/5) with higher stakes (5/10+) would be my preference. Even a 2/3 game or something every other week would be great. Looking forward to the game tonight. Either way, I enjoy the product overall.

Re: Live at the Bike

Much love everyone, found this thread. Will check back in to pass feedback to our production team. I'm sure Ryan is as well!

<3 Apprecaite y'all taking the time to communicate with us here... 100% listening to all points, including the small stakes comments + the donations stuffs.

I'm working with the LATB team to update their products to be better! Tons of cool stuff coming down the pipes this year. (Expect a much higher quality show on a monthly basis)
