We are currently in an age where the depth of strategy is all around us, the lives of poker players are on display, and plenty of time and money is spent to enhance graphics in footage.
However, without using any of these tricks, a favourite YouTube channel that has not been pimped for a while is out of date. That said there is a reason why it is still a popular channel: Jake Cody.
The Brit, who is also a Triple Crown winner and a former PokerStars Professional for six consecutive years, put his skills into the 14 vlogs on the channel. Although they are archive footage, with the last vlog being more than two years ago, the opportunity to explore a poker king is incredible.
We have revisited these videos repeatedly, and the reason is the poker king himself. Having interview Jake once after a tournament, he had been eliminated from the game, and he felt crushed. However, he took some time to chat about the game, the media aspect of it all, and the current events in the world of poker.
When a fan who did not know what poker was all about asked for some help, he was happy to explain it all. He has the desire to do good for no other reason other than to make others smile.
Be it landing in Monaco by a helicopter with the likes of Sam Grafton, jumping off the tallest Bungee jump or baring out his soul after a tough time that poker helped him transition through, and he engages decently.
He once ended up on a cliff-hanger, promising to explain further, why he risked more than $40000 to spin a silver ball when he emerged the winner at a British event. Perhaps one day, he might get back to Vlogging and even explain more about his viral video moments almost two years ago. If not, there is plenty to enjoy from watching his Vlogging journey.
