Okay, okay! The joke is on me. I feel like I have just been punked. And screw you soncheebs (jokingly) for making me spend half of my day thinking about this. Seeing this video was like hearing a song and then not being able to get it out of your head.
Understand that I had never heard of this guy before seeing this thread. So when I saw this video, I took it at face value and believed that this guy was serious. I thought the joke was that he actually played that bad while actually thinking he was good. After all, we've all seen players that are so horrible that our head instantly starts to hurt when we try to imagine what must be going through their minds. So I know players like this exist. I just wouldn't think any of them would have the nerve to make a video. But here this guy, sounding so serious that it's hard not to be convinced. But at some point (actually several points) you have to tell yourself that this guy can't be serious.
Of course, every time someone responded to this thread it returned to the New Subscribed Threads section of my User CP, and thus back to the front of consciousness. Each time it became harder to ignore the voice telling me that there was no way this guy could be serious. I finally googled gder01 and found out that this guy makes these videos as a joke inspired by an instructional video he saw on a poker forum
in which the poster was seriously giving terrible advice.
I understand that some of his videos have some pretty crazy stuff going on in the background that makes them really hilarious. Maybe if I had seen one of those I would have realized that they were a joke sooner. I did try to watch some of his other videos, but I was unable to bear it long enough to make it that far into any of them. Now that I know they are intended as humor, I might try again.
