Team Online's Tyler "Frosty012" Frost in the spotlight
You may know Tyler "Frosty012" Frost from his blog. You may know him from the countless hours he puts in on PokerStars to remain a Supernova Elite. You may just know him as that young guy drinking PBR at the cowboy bar in Vancouver. Regardless, as of today, you're sharing Frost with a lot more people.
This morning, Team PokerStars Online released a min-documentary on Frost that highlights how he got started in the game, how he's lived since, and what he does in his spare time.
A little preview: After playing cards for small stakes versus his friends, Frost decided one summer to try to earn $10,000 on PokerStars to pay for his fall schooling. He ended up earning $30,000 with a month to spare.
"I was very impressed by the film. I think that the editing job was amazing and really represented how I live a poker lifestyle," Frost said. "I think that it was cool to get the perspective of some of my friends as well."
To make the above film, Frost ended up spending an entire day with a camera crew hovering over his shoulder. Along the way, his friends joined in for some nightlife.
"The movie was a ton of fun to make. It was a long day, but the whole time I enjoyed getting a taste of what it could be like to be famous, even if on such a micro level," Frost said. "The best part was probably going downtown at night and having the guys follow my entourage with cameras as we toured different bars and clubs. The attention that comes along with everything is pretty fun and I feel as if I played movie star for a day."
