Some cringe worthy moments in the Pai Gow video tonight for me (Sarah misplaying her first hand. She was lucky they let her push. Most places would have taken her money).

Vic got lucky with the dealer not realizing she had a straight and playing the flush instead. He would have lost:

Yeah I've been wanting more pai gow videos but the beginning made me turn it off for another day.

Definitely don't make comments like, "That was the right hold," when you clearly have no clue what the right hold is.

In the case of holding a pair of 6s when he should have gone for 3 to a royal, it seems like he might think he is a good poker player generally, but doesn't know a thing about VP. However, if he held an Ace and dropped a pair of 6s later on, then, well, we have to conclude he is bad at regular poker too

Unfortunately he's just bad, even listening to him talk strategy with Sara it seems he knows enough to be dangerous but not enough to know exactly why you're making certain plays. I've been practicing my vp a bit with a play store app and I'm sitting around 99% correct plays, with the incorrect ones are when I value a royal over a statistically but marginally better play.

So I made a comment in one of his videos. I said "An incredible number of erroneous decisions made here." He responded with: "I have a different approach when filming as I'm aiming for big hands, and not just trying to play for as long as possible. It may not be the optimal strategy, but I'm ok with that. Hope that helps."

If that were true, he would have gone for the royal and not kept the 6s. He's just bad. But that's ok too, helps keep the paytables up.

    I don't even care so much THAT he made the wrong decision...I care, but only a little. My big problem is verbally declaring the wrong decision to be the right one.

    Like you said, dude should just admit that he's not very accurate. Most people aren't.

    I know I'm shilling hard for the slot massacre crew of guys but at least they have a disclaimer "don't play like me, I don't always make the statistical right play, and you don't know what loss rebate I have with the casino."

    Yeah, I ended up commenting in that thread in the Video about the errors. I hope I was polite enough.

    Where has Sarah gone? All new videos and 90% of the streams seem to be the new guy.

    Canít stand watching the streams where he loses cause he is such a whiner.

    I donít know why she partnered up with this guy. She had a nice gig. The only thing I can think of is she wanted to curtail losses and play less sessions. Then again, everything I hear is that these channels are lucrative..but then I hear they arenít. NG Slots is utterly adamant that he cannot cover his yearly losses with his channel. He has 250,000 subscribers. Is he lying? Maybe. Is he not being totally transparent and is also including his table losses? Maybe.

    Even the channels that purport to tell us what they make are wide ranging. Iíve seen reports that Lady Luck was making $40,000 per month to reports that itís $12,000. Iím at a point where Iíll believe what I can see. Letís see the income reports first hand, especially from the ones who say they are making X.

    Iíve also heard reports that winning sessions have a much higher return (views, trending, etc) than a losing session. This might explain why most if not all of these channels arenít fully transparent in showing all sessions. Too many losses = less money back. It may also explain why many of their sessions are ďsignaledĒ prior to watching. They signal a big win in the heading or preview.
