Streaming Channel Idea/Question

CoffeeAnd420

To the point: Do you think there would be any interest in a youtube or twitch channel featuring someone in their late 30's+ accruing rapid chess progress online and OTB? 

I play both poker and chess - Wondering which one to stream and take more seriously atm. Thanks.

You?  Rapid progress?

/ By all means, show us how it is done.

??? Slapping the pieces around in blitz without a care in the world (and drunk at times) - in the past - has nothing to do with making rapid progress in the future. Besides - nobody cares about low level blitz progress. You know that. I'm a 1473 rapid and yet you cherry picked a low rating in a time variant. smh...

 

I guess that is a +1 in the "interested" column, though.

Just ripped this little gem here.

ChessTempo blitz is at 1604.1

lol, thanks for trolling me. It was a bullet game and time was obv a factor. I blundered, then he did, and it left +m1 on the board. Simple as that.

I was just wondering if he was going to go ahead with the "watch me play slow chess" stream.

I guess he decided to go with poker...

Not 100% necessarily. I spent the last 10 days on poker again - heavily studying and playing. I'm improving quite a bit. Still, I keep getting the Chess itch and there are other factors to consider, which I am. We'll see what happens.

Did wind up going with poker in the end. I've changed since I started playing both games about 5-6 years ago and I just like poker more at this point. It also fits better into my lifestyle and the fact that it on it's own can be (is) profitable, along with being able to branch it off into other things, makes it just a better activity for me to be spending time on. It's good for me as a person, too since the psychological aspects of tilt control, patience, etc balance me off well.

 

When I get some new content added to my channel I'll post it here for anyone who's interested.
