    Has anyone watched some of the videos this guy has posted? How is he filming these games? Phone in the chip rack? (I don’t think so). Camera type spectacles? (No the angle of the filming would be far higher). Must be some type of advanced camera attached to his shirt? Beats me...
    More to the point how about that high stakes game in (can’t remember where......not Vegas or in Nevada, I think a southern State).
    Can anyone explain how he goes from betting so big in that video to a more modest level in all the others. Had he just robbed a bank or just received a huge inheritance?
    Anyway. Fascinating watching. Undoubtedly big balls betting the way he did in the high stakes games.
    Interested to hear others’ thoughts.

    Good morning ,I've enjoyed quite a few of his videos. As far as a recording them , I dunno, perhaps a hat visor camera?

    As far as the differing amounts there could be many reasons for this. The higher bets because he's coming off a winning streak and feels, why not, I'm playing with house money.

    Then again the lower unit bet may represent a bouncy table he doesn't like but will play a more cautious game.

    Thanks for your reply HHB. With respect I don’t think that high stakes game was with “house money” after a win. Are you familiar with the one I’m referring to? From memory I think he was “put” betting the 6 and 8 for $2100 each ($100 flat with 20x odds) plus a line bet with max odds too.
    Certainly way more than his usual stakes. I think his bank roll was $60k or thereabouts. Normal bankroll between $500 and $1000.
    Don’t believe his camera is on a cap as the angle of the footage isn’t that high.

    I had to watch that part one video again. Lake Charles Louisiana, Isle of Capri casino. $125 or $150 with twenty times odds put bets. Had his bank roll over $80k....normal buy ins on other videos $350 or $500.
    That is some variance in bank rolls !!!

    WW,

    For electronic idiots such as myself, you need to provide a link to something you want us to see.

    I will admit that I won't watch it, but someone might want to.

    edit: maybe I will watch it if the table has 20x odds. I can only wish for that.

    Might he have found a "silent partner"?

    Fair call TMS about attaching that link. Thank you Bases Loaded for putting that up. (Excuse my ignorance but I don’t know how to do that. Worth a chat with my niece or nephew to get some tuition.)
    Yes good chance that bank roll may have had some outside assistance.
    The video of betting at the “D” on the dark side was obviously with money combined with a friend (who had obviously consumed a few too many beers). That was a obvious disaster and you could tell he wasn’t comfortable betting the “wrong” way. Showed he didn’t have a good grasp of the concept declining to get behind the 6 or 8 even though he was getting “overs” had he done so.
