I was robbed at The Lodge, and while it was painful to put out there, people need to know what's going on


on the 9852 hand, is there an error? you say you turned the nuts on one board (assuming you mean top board based on your commentary), but they are J745 and 996J as shown - no nuts on either board.

Yes, you are correct. I think I just mispoke in the narration as I don't have the straight on the turn

I must admit that I would've left with you at the table. Not that it's terrible with a guy that screams from the top of his lungs but ... oh wait! Yes, that. Can't belive the maniac moved closer to you. :D

That's fair, a number of people get a kick out of it, but plenty of people have also mentioned they don't like it (including my wife). I mean, shit, I don't like it either, cause it means I just lost a big pot. :(

Well, it's more the volume over anything for my part. And I'm the loud neighbor so it's not a general thing, but "out of context volume", to coin a phrase, is annoying. Then again, I guess I'm showing my age.

I'm going to stop doing it, although my 4 hands that I'll share will likely have it since they will be raw footage

i'm going to go against the grain here, as well as against my original input on the subject. i actually think the "SUCKA DEALA" thing has become somewhat endearing IF you are using it sparingly. that's impossible to tell from the vlogs, but if you're busting it out only at the right moments, i'm on board.

I typically only shout it in big pots, but I'm getting enough feedback against it that I think the best choice is to stop doing it

I can still make the vlog funny with the cackling dealer flying around punishing me

But I do appreciate that you enjoyed it

this feels backwards to say, but don't be boring at the table for the sake of your vlog.

Is there any chatter on the potential ending of the membership card rooms there?
Haven’t seen anything pop up on YouTube about it at all
Figured if it was serious Polk and his guys would be going ape about it

I spoke with the owner of Rounders when I was down there, but haven't heard much else

A Democrat introduced a bill that would change the meaning of a word in the law to mean only residdnces, I believe, which would make the clubs illegal

The "Suckah Dealah's!" were just a tad overdone in the last video. That last hand though.....that truly deserved one. Woof. Still would buy a "Suckah Dealah!" Poker Jeezus shirt or tank though!

I was thinking about your cold run as of late. Your wins seem to be modest but your losses colossal.

I can hear you already scoffing at me from Texas, but have you considered sitting down at the hold 'em tables there for a bit? You still have the same punters looking to donate but your equities aren't going to run as close together preflop as they would in PLO. I've seen that you've been potting it lots with aces and premiums preflop in PLO and the players not respecting your raises and you're going into the flop and streets after multiways, and of course someone ends up sucking out, even if you play perfectly post flop.

I do think that you'll find you'll be winning more, at least at the Lodge.

I'd rather jump off a bridge than play hold em cash games

Also, you are seeing hands from over a month ago

My next couple of vlogs are decent wins (except for the four raw, unedited hands I'll share soon from this past saturdays session)

Also, at the end of the day if I'm getting money in as an equity favorite, that's really the goal.

Short term the variance will beat up on you, long-term you'll make the money

Guys raising KQ33 pre and calling off half their stacks, or calling $280 preflop 4-ways holding 3445 aren't going to hold onto that money long-term

It sucks that short-term they are rewarded for being boneheads and it's my roll that suffers.

But at the end of the day I want AAQQ vs KQ33 all day

“Fuck this guy, right in the butt hole”. Hahahahahaha

"The Fuckening" was my favorite part of the last vlog. I'm going to start using that in every day life.

You just don't get this kind of content in a Brad Owen vlog. How I don't have over a million subscribers and national brands trying to sponsor me is a mystery at this point

I've had to unsubscribe from Andrew, Brad, and even my favourite Jaman as their channels were just plastered with ClubWPT shit now.

Prior to that though, I was thrilled that Brad moved up in stakes and was showing bigger and bigger games he's playing in.

But sadly because of that, in the same vein of an indie band "selling out" or making it big, the vlogs lost their appeal to me. Knowing that you're just another sponsored mouthpiece for a gaming site eliminates all investment I have as a viewer of whether you do well or not in a session.

I'm half kidding only in saying this, but get Suckahdealah and all other spelling permutations trademarked. If you ever get to the point that the vlog blows up and you get sponsorship deals, you're going to want to own it, rather than let the leeches of your sponsors made a mint off it but see you get nothing.

But I'm going to stop shouting it moving forward....
