Hello! I am new here and I had a few questions

Hi everybody!
Hope everything is going well and that you crushin it!

So I just signed up, I have been trying to get more involved with the different poker communities online like cardschat forums and the streamers comment sections on youtube and whatnot.

Who am I?



A gamer (currently working on my on video game), a music composer and an aspiring poker pro.

I play mainly on Pokerstars and I play Micro, low and Mid stakes, with a lot of sats and SnGs in between.

My biggest win was 1200$ at the end of 2017. I reached a couple FTs or did a few deep runs here and there, but haven't been able yet to surpass the 1200 bar, which was pretty high at the time since I was still pretty noob at poker haha!

Been playing seriously for a bit more than 2 years now. Studying a lot too. I am still confused with pot odds, but I will get there one day lol.

The big questions:
I was wondering if it is ok to make a post with a video of my youtube channel here? I have read the rules and checked around what people posted. To my grand surprise I didn't see any content creators during my look around.

The next question is: Would you be interested to follow such video posts? I know sometimes it can look like spammy or something...like ''oh this guy again with his ****in youtube channel''! I promise I wouldn't post more than once a week or 2 weeks.

My newest video is a 2 parts video, where I grinded for 2 days straight without much sleep. I was tilted as f the whole time until....something happened!

For now only part 1 is available on my channel but.... I didn't get any views (well some but not even 100 lol) or any news subs from it! The whole point was to build a mini hype train so my viewers would be excited to see part 2! (which I assure you, it's really worth it! Crazy **** is happening in that video haha).

So yea.... that's it, just wondering if you guys are interested in this type of content and if you could help me out build a mini hype train so when I release that second part, at least all this work wasn't for nothing! (took me a full day of non-stop editing haha).

Thank you very much for reading my brick text lol, I hope it wasn't too boring.

Let's speak soon, and have a wonderful day!

Regards,

Laj

Re: Hello! I am new here and I had a few questions

Before I commit to anything, such as viewing your channel I have a few questions:

1. Would you consider sucker punching someone in the face for being a loudmouth while being escorted off of casino property?

2. Do you plan on starting an online poker room? If so, do you plan on scamming players?

3. Do you like Lee Jones?

4. Is more rake better?

5. Does Sheldon Adelson deserve to die?

6. Is Bobby Belande a degen?

7. What makes you cringe?

9. Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or a hundred duck-sized horses?

lejeandom, you posted this in the cesspool area of 2+2. You will get nothing of value here. I (green name) am a moderator here...but not in this area so I can not move this thread to a more appropriate area. I have notified moderators that have the ability to move. GL

A simple HU: These ppl are more interested in sheep (some from the front view and a few - I suspect - from the back) so, to be a hit, you should include some sheep in your vids.

Fair questions, deserves fair answers! :

1. Would you consider sucker punching someone in the face for being a loudmouth while being escorted off of casino property?
- I am not a violent person, but if I had to punch someone in the face one day it would be in a fair and square fight, I am against sucker punches! (you see the typical gamer thought process who played too much fighting games haha)

2. Do you plan on starting an online poker room? If so, do you plan on scamming players?
- I don't have the time, nor the money, nor the infrastructures for such endeavors. (assuming youre talking about a software and not an online home game). But if I had, I wouldn't be scamming cuz scamming is bad, m'kayyy.

3. Do you like Lee Jones?
Sorry, didn't follow his story enough to give you a real answer on that one.

4. Is more rake better?
The expression less is more never been as meaningful as...right now!

5. Does Sheldon Adelson deserve to die?
I don't think anybody or any leaving thing deserves to die, death is bad too m'kayy. Of course, a lot of people on this planet deserves a correction of some sort, but what is a good or adequate correction for x and y situation? What is good and bad? Where's the line? Sorry.......now there more questions than answers....next!

6. Is Bobby Belande a degen?
Wtv he is, he won more money than I could dream of, gotta respect that

7. What makes you cringe?
The players begging for 1$ transfers to their PS account.

That feels like a trap! But if I had the opportunity of fighting an angry mob of 5 years old without any real negative consequences (like everybody would be good with it) i'd say... bring em on as many as you want! I would either die under a pile of 5 years old or win because they decided to attack 1 at the time like in the movies. Either way I think it would be glorious.

9. Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or a hundred duck-sized horses?
I think I would go with the mob again! Let's fight to the death, f it!

Don't hesitate if you have any more questions!

Think about it. Maybe there should be a warning sign: "You are entering the ATF"

Re: Hello! I am new here and I had a few questions

OP, the simplest answer to your very long question about Youtube is - NO. Now, it could be that there is some content you'd like to post that might fit in and be allowed in certain threads in specific forums, so you might want to do some poking around and reading. That's usually what people do here, in fact, rather than creating a thread with their resume and asking about all different ways they can promote themselves on our forums. I don't want to be unfair, but when you register with an email address that has "production" in it, and your first post is starting a new thread asking about promoting yourself, my spam radar starts going a little crazy.

That said, I do appreciate that you've asked the question rather than just launching right in to promoting yourself.

Who are you or anyone else to pass judgement when he posts something poker related? This is a poker forum correct?

Lol, my email address is just very old. As you saw in my ''resume'', I am also a music composer, hence the production in the name, and ajean, like lajeandom, is just a play on word of my real name.

It has absolutely nothing to do with promotion or wtv. In fact, I didn't know anything about poker back then when I created this email haha.

Additionnaly, that's why I came here and presented myself, by respect for you and the other users, to know IF you guys would be interested to see SOME of my deepruns or FTs here. I am not forcing you, I am asking.

And also I wanted to better know you and this forum, where to post exactly, since it's quite an extensive place I have to admit eheh!

I hope this clear things out...I didn't even post any video yet lol and I won't post anything if I see that there is no interest at all...but I would be very surprised if that was the case lol?

My part 1 is still under 100 views...so for me it's just a big failure for now, and I don't want to post part 2 as long as I didn't get at least a few people interested to see what happens with that story.

Hopefully I can find a few viewers here and there soon! ^^

Re: Hello! I am new here and I had a few questions

Suggestion, stream it out to a twitch channel and make it available in your channel's library. You can announce your twitch stream in our Twitch forum.

That is the only place we allow some self promotion to avoid having the forun cluttered with spam threads and posts.
