"I watched [Jason's] YouTube videos back in the day, when he was doing them for Ultimate Poker. Maybe eight months after he started those?"

"When I was first learning poker, I was already watching a lot of Twitch. Then when I started watching poker streams, Jason was the best. So eventually I was only watching him."

"I started watching Jason really, really early. Like on YouTube, his final table with Russell Thomas. And I followed him to Twitch. So I'm an early Warrior!"

"I used to work in ESports and discovered Twitch poker when it was really young. And it was love at first sight... well, at least for me. Because [Jason] couldn't see me yet!"

"The old YouTube videos. It was before Twitch, so it's been a long time."

"I started watching the YouTube videos after one of my friends took me to the casino to play poker for the first time. So I've been watching Jason for a little over two years."
