    Molly = divorced jewish real estate agent looking for 15 minutes of YouTube fame.

    the molly thing is one of the few non fails of his vlog...for a 1/2 grinder to get somebody that looks like that is fucking amazing...for 40something molly aint bad...im guessing she finally figured out that 'poker grinder' wasn't that sexy when he just played 1/2...

    Yeah she does look good for a 40-something woman. A bit of the fake Vegas bleach blond look, and probably looks a hell of a lot worse in the morning than she does when all done up on video, but overall very attractive for her age.

    Would love to know how that whole relationship came to be. Was she really just looking to be a YouTube start and thought Trooper was her way in? If so, LOL.

    Watch a few of the videos. Molly isn't out of Troopers league. In the words of my Father Molly is a real drip.

    drip
    noun
    Definition of drip

    5
    :* a dull or unattractive person



    I'd also like to know how the relationship came to be though.
    Take me down to the Parvati City where the reps are green and the girls are pretty. Take me home.

    STILL the most posts deleted. STILL the FBI is harassing me. STILL double the reputation of any poster. STILL quadruple the rep/post ratio of any poster. STILL BGC.

    yeah going through plausible theories it's really tough...

    tinder...don't see trooper being a tinder guy and don't see her swiping right on his ass...
    online dating...possible, but seems highly unlikely on troopers end...
    casino...molly doesn't look like the type of person that frequents the shitholes that trooper plays in most of the time...
    mutual friends...again possible, but trooper doesn't seem to pal around with people...

    it's a head scratcher for sure...

    It seems like a lot of people quit Vlogging after 6 months or so, due to trolls, or no profit, or too much effort, etc.

    Unrelated, but how much time does it take, on average, to fully produce one of those Doug Polk videos?

    Like, I'm talking between preparation, multiple takes, editing, etc?

    I'm guessing it takes more time than we think.

    Good job on those, BTW. Doug's playing great recently with his channel.

    Is it a requirement that all of these vloggers have repellent personalities or is that just coincidence?

    It depends on what kind of video we're doing. Poker Hands is by far the easiest on both sides. Doug generally knocks those out in less than an hour, and it takes me a couple to edit. Maybe another hour to render, upload, make a thumbnail, title, description, endcards, etc.

    For news and comedy, we'll meet for an hour or two to discuss stories and jokes. But these meetings generally also cover stuff like channel analytics and trends. These videos are only slightly more technically challenging, but anything that requires me to be creative will be more time consuming. Doug takes a bit more time doing multiple takes and some improv. So on average, 4-5 hours on my end, sometimes more. 2-3 on Doug's, sometimes more.

    Vlogs are a pain in the ass. I didn't do myself any favors with this, hotdogging it with stuff like motion tracking. Like the billboards and text in the intro here:



    But the worst part on my end is the hand reviews within vlogs. Because we're generally not working with broadcast footage, I convert verbal hand histories into text and import them into Poker Tracker. It's like a more tedious version of Poker Hands, but done multiple times within one video.

    It also sucks for Doug because he's getting most of the footage himself with limited time on breaks. He even did this during the One Drop, giving himself almost no downtime while playing for millions of dollars. Sometimes he'd spend 8 hours playing something he otherwise wouldn't bother with, like 5/10 cash or low stakes MTTs, just for the sake of vlogging.

    The extra effort wasn't really worth it, as vlogs aren't even as popular as other types of content we've created. So we're using our time more efficiently these days. I'm glad we covered each day of the One Drop though, because it's just cool to have it documented from that perspective.

    Fedor Holz has joined the vlogging


  13. #33
    I didn't know Fedor had such a great sense of humor. If I were to make a parody of lifestyle vlogs, I would also set half of it at Whole Foods.

    Is Fedor gay or just foreign? I get so confused with Euros.

    He didn't load up the video with out of place females the way Negreanu does to make it incredibly obvious. This one is honestly tough.

    Onestep???
