Doing the videos is a noble gesture and I have no doubt in the world that they will be a good tool for helping others. But with the best intention in the world, this will not show or prove that your average player can consistently be profitable at those tables.
It may well show the sound way to play, I don't doubt your ability for one second, but how much editing will you need to do to show that the strategy really works in the long run?
You cannot show videos of yourself chucking hand after endless hand for over an hour - which is what you sometimes have to do. You cannot show the bit when you make a brilliant aggressive move with top pair, raising the other guy's bluff, only for them to hit their runner runner straight - which happens.
It's easy to just show the edited bits where your strategy pays off and then say - there you go, I told you so!
I just think you have to be cautious...no i just think it's wrong to portray online poker as the "easy-money" option that many people on this forum say it is. And saying to the average player that beating the limits up to $1/$2 NL is "pretty easy" just strikes me as being a tad arrogant.
if you have watched any of my videos yet so far you should know I do not edit. I even have one where im yelling at my kid
I will be playing more then 1 table so that should take out the bordem part of it. Maybe 2-4 not sure yet how many.
the video series will be played from start to end and the object of them is not to see how much money Joose and I win but how to play solid TAG style poker.
no one said poker is easy but the thing is the players are bad at almost every level until 2/4 that is where they start betting position more then the cards they hold.
im trying to get in touch with guy who did this awhile back and see if Its ok for me to copy his strategy guide so I dont have to type up my own.
