Less than a month after announcing that he was stepping away from his sponsorship with PokerStars, Jeff Gross has announced he is now a member of partypoker’s quickly expanding Team Online.
Gross is arguably the highest profile poker professional to be named to the new online team thus far. For well over a decade, Gross has been a fixture on the live poker scene, amassing over $3.2 million in live earnings and over $1.4 million playing online. In addition to his poker results, Gross gained next-level notoriety through his use of social media. He has a passionate online streaming community on Twitch, creating his popular Poker Flow Show channel, and is also a regular vlogger and podcaster on YouTube.
While Gross does not have the most followers of partypoker’s Team Online, that title belongs to Alan ‘hotted89’ Widmann, he does bring a legion of nearly 56,000 Twitch followers and another 25,000 YouTube subscribers to the team.

In addition to his inclusion in partypoker’s new stable, he is also still recognized as a team member of Run It Up on the Run It Up website.
The past few days have been busy for partypoker as they continued to add online talent to their ambassador list. On Wednesday, Dutch streamer Steven ‘DWstevie’ Kok was added to the team. Kok is a member of the RaiseYourEdge team and as cultivated a Twitch following of over 10,000 who tune in to hear his analytical approach to the game.
On Thursday, Poland’s Monika ‘HeyMonia’ Zukowicz was officially the ninth member of Team Online. A student of poker and cash game player, the 27-year old Malta resident splits her time between grinding online and playing live tournaments.
“I feel absolutely delighted and thrilled to become a part of the official Team Online,” Zukowicz said. “I have been representing partypoker as a streamer for the last few months. Ever since we have signed our first contract I have been working hard to grow as a person and as a player to represent partypoker to the best of my ability.”
After two full weeks of announcements, the addition of Gross brings the count of partypoker’s official Team Online to ten players. In addition to the flood of new official ambassadors, partypoker has a partnership with Bill Perkins’ personal Twitch Channel, ‘The Thirst Lounge’ which has an additional 10 hosts, crafted in part by Jeff Gross himself, playing on the partypoker platform.
Gross, Zukowicz and Kok join the previously establish streamers of Matt Staples, Hristivoje ‘ALLinPav’, Travis ‘dramaticdegen’ Darroch, Partick ‘XxXMLGPROXxX’ Tardif, Alan ‘hotted89’ Widmann, Ryan ‘RSchoonbaert’ Schoonbaert and Courtney ‘courtiebee’ Gee as the current complete roster.
partypoker continues to indicate that there will be more announcements of Team Online members to come.
