There have been some requests for longer Poker videos, so here's a Sit & Go Poker tournament video! You folks seem to be enjoying the Poker content, which I think is really cool. :)
Other places to find my stuff:
5:57 the fold is indeed the good decision. If the guy as an ace you're drawing semi dead and since he put all-in in early position he might had KK or AA and you're dead + as you said you have the chip lead and it's important to keep it.
Wow, X (haha, can I call you X?). No matter what videos of your's I watch, from 2010 Minecraft to poker, I find your videos so, very entertaining because of the way you engage with your viewers and the way you can talk so easily and the awesomeness just rolls off of your tongue. Love the videos man, all of them.
When you're in the dealer position (called "on the button" because a dealer button is passed around the table to signify who is in the dealer position), you are the last player to act on the flop and on all subsequent betting rounds. Being last to act lets you see what everyone else is going to do before you make your decision of how to play. Thus, you have more information than anybody else on the flop and after the flop. A good player can use this position to his or her advantage.
noob question, are you playing here for money or is it like "pay a couple of bucks for 10000 chips and just have fun"? Btw, love these videos. Never been watching any poker games, turns out to be quite interesting!
This is not for real money. And I haven't paid any real money to get the play chips. PokerStars play money accounts give you chips to play with for free, and every 4 hours you can log in to click a button for 12,500 free chips (but you have to log in and click the button to get them).
You CAN pay real money for more play chips, if you're just looking to mess around a bit and/or you want to support PokerStars. But, at the time of posting this comment, I currently have 137,000.08 play money chips and I haven't paid any real money for them; I just win them from normal tables, Beat the Clock games, and now, apparently, Sit & Go's.
I love the way you look at it! I've watched a lot of your channel early on and have been a loyal subscriber because you know how to make every subject interesting. I love how you explain tactics of every game you play and I look forward to what 2017 brings for x!
The way you worded this was rather passive aggressive (advice for the future: don't be that guy!), but on the chance that you sincerely meant to say you were sorry, I thank you for your sentiment. :) But, I feel your view is archaic (as in, outdated; outmoded; behind the times; obsolete). Many on YouTube still look at a channel's numbers, and those numbers alone, to determine a channel's health and worth. If someone sees low numbers, they determine the channel must not be a good one. In some cases, perhaps this is true! But that is not the case for my channel. I can say with no ego that my content is very high quality, and that people genuinely love what I do here. My channel is a very strong one, and has been since I uploaded X001.
Now, there's also the chance that you meant to say you wish I was making more money off this. And if so, then, again, I thank you. :) I wish I was, too! But, the truth is, I know exactly how to make more money off my channel. Use catchy titles and focus on attractive thumbnails to garner views. Update on a regular schedule. Start a Patreon. Cross-promote my YouTube and my Twitch (the latter of which has done great for me since 2015) to grow them both simultaneously.
THOSE are how you grow a channel. You don't focus on Minecraft just because it was once popular. That's putting all your eggs in one basket and doing so is also creating content just to milk the cash, rather than to make videos you truly love. I chose not to be that kind of YouTuber.
So, for those reading this and who are wondering, "Well why don't you do all those things that could grow your YouTube and your revenue? The titles, the thumbnails, the Patreon, the cross-promotion? Seems like the obvious thing to do." Yeah, I definitely know how to do all those things **and I plan to do some of them this year.** Who knows whether or not I will, though, as I've always just sort of gone wherever the road leads with my YouTube channel (see my profile picture, it's been here since 2010 and it's still representative of my channel). Simply that I know how to make a highly profitable YouTube channel doesn't mean I have to rush to do anything. But, like I said, it's something I do want to do, eventually, so I'm planning on getting around to it. :)
The channel never dissolved. Just because it doesn't cater to your high demands doesn't mean it dissolved. I've been subscribed for 6 years and I keep coming back to watch David do his own thing and have fun doing it. I'm glad he didn't try to milk a cash cow but stayed true to himself and having fun. I'd much rather watch that than a youtuber that becomes stale and alienates his audience.
