    Bumping this because 1) it's great and lots of you may not have seen it and 2) because on his latest VLOG he desperately wants to get to 5000 subscribers. It's good for ten minutes of Vegas and poker related videos every few days.

    I enjoy Troop's videos even though I don't understand the poker lingo he sometimes uses. There's plenty of Vegas scenery to enjoy in the meantime.

    I watch the Trooper's videos for a lot of reasons, poker, Vegas, a guy struggling to make it and he's funny. But I also think he produces great videos, the music selections are great, his editing is constantly improving and the imagery is great.

    Go Troop!

    I am not a poker player.
    Is it common for dealers to play at other casinos? It seems like it would be getting paid for an education.

    Yeah from what I've seen in the past a lot of them do play... I've sat at a table a few times where a dealer was talking to a regular about going to play after their shift. They just can't play at the same casino where they work.

    finally got a chance to watch a few, enjoyable so far, I admire his courage for putting it all out there. Don't know how he gets away with shooting his hands but whatever. Love the shots of off strip Vegas. Will look and see if I can spot him at the Linq, 3 weeks!
     
    A low strip trip? Could be….
    Boom! A comp arrives and I can’t say no

    I have been watching his videos for a few months now , not a poker player but love the Vegas scenery and his humour. He is currently doing a daily vlog so its a daily fix :) might walk through the Linq next week to see if he is dealing

    Let me just ask --- I don't have audio for this video ---
    it's his hidden camera at the Poker table ?
    Cameras wouldn't be allowed ?

    Trooper has some of the best video of Vegas I have found on the internet. Some good stories of grinding at poker too.

    Didn't realise so many others on here were railing along as well! Been watching this thanks to 2+2 for the last year or so, look forward to running into him at the Linq in a couple of weeks.
