But is it the actual poker that people find uninteresting? Unlikely, with videos like these having collected insane views:
The gambling aspect of poker is clearly still a huge part of why it receives so much attention. So does it then boil down to the significance of the player vlogging? Compared to the random guy who videos at your local casino? This could perhaps be the case.
