Default Lego Poker training videos....a joke?

http://leggopoker.com/index.php?page...o&video=36

I'm not trying to just flame their new site, but I can't help wonder what they are thinking if this isn't a joke. From the few minutes I watched this "free sample" video, not only would I never go back to Lego Poker for instructional videos, but this guy, is posting in the CO in 6max, looks at a guys HUD stats in a BvB hand and says something like "this guy seems to be kinda tight, oh wait, I mean, kinda loose, etc...I was literally laughing.

Obviously they might not all be like this, but from what I saw when I went to their site, they only had 2 options for sample videos, did anyone in Lego Poker management watch this before they released it to potential customers as an example of their product?

To anyone familiar with CR of PXF videos, what do you make of this?

Certainly not a joke sir. That "guy" is Carrotsnake, a very successful small stakes and mid stakes player.

What is wrong with posting in the CO?

I'm guessing when Carrot glanced at his HUD stats he seen the 13% PFR and typically PFR is close to VPIP so he assumed this player was a nit, but then when he checked the VPIP to confirm this he noticed that it was much higher than expected and so said he was loose.

I am a co-owner of LeggoPoker, and yes, of course we watched all of these videos before releasing them, and we all agreed that these are great samples of what we have to offer.

Glad to get a response from someone at Lego....

Hopefully you can answer me this....

Do you really think that this "instructors" assessment of TwelveBeers being a TAG "because of his name is a reasonable one?

Also, he says "it's a pretty drawy, well not dreally "drawy", but the card "above me" is a little scary"...

I mean, it just seems to be really unprofessional and sloppy, imo. I think there is plenty of room in the online poker training market if the new entries take the right angle, I just can't see how anyone who saw this video would ever consider Lego over CR or PXF at this point....

Sorry you didn't like the video.

I don't think your classification of the video being a "joke" is fair though. It seems like you took a couple of little things Carrotsnake did in the video, which ultimately are pretty insignificant, and made a broad conclusion.

Anyone that is looking to improve as a player will find tons of useful content in Carrot's video, this is literally the first complaint I have heard about the video.

The commentary he is making is not insignificant imo. He may be a winning player over however long, but in order for his videos to be helpful, quality commentary is essential. Are you saying his commentary is up to par with Lego Poker standards?

Why CarrotSnake's videos are good: He is a good player, more aggressive than most, and a better handreader than most.

Why you didn't like it: You are a bad nit. You get owned by players who are more aggressive than you and know how to handread.
