  1. For 1,000 hours over 100 consecutive days, Lukas 'RobinPoker' Robinson streamed online poker on Twitch. Think about that for a moment. That’s ten hours a day glued to your computer. Ten hours a day spent inside. Ten hours a day where your only respite from being on camera is the hourly five-minute bathroom breaks. Not only did he complete the challenge, Robinson smashed it in ways he couldn’t have imagined when he first conceived the idea. Now he’s slowly adjusting back to life outside of his self-imposed bubble. “I needed some time to chill when it was over as I was wrecked, but I’m fee
  2. In honor of International Women’s Day, PocketFives is shining the light on some of the women in poker who have made poker their lives and their careers and are an integral part of moving the game to new heights. If you are a poker fan in Latin America, then there’s a very good chance you are already very aware of Pamela 'Pamsi' Balzano, the 25-year old poker player and influencer from Buenos Aires, Argentina who dedicates almost all of her time and creativity to promote the game of poker. Balzano, a part-time player and full-time content creator, has been heavily involved in the poker co
  3. For weeks now, the worldwide Online Poker Rankings have been a tight-knit crew. Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon has held down the top spot for the past eight weeks and well-known names like Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic, Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson, and Bert ‘girafganger7’ Stevens have occupied their own positions inside the Top 5. But this week, a new player broke through into the upper echelons of the rankings for the first time in his career. Portugal’s #1-ranked pro Rui ‘RuiNF’ Ferreira soared past Brazil’s Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann and Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivieleski to capture the #5 spot, building on w
  4. Vivian Saliba is learning a new game. It’s unlike her beloved Pot Limit Omaha, No Limit Hold’em, or any other that she’s played. It’s the Twitch game and she’s already finding it as challenging and rewarding as any card game in her arsenal. Saliba has recently decided to convert the time she would have spent playing in live events around the world into bringing the world to her with a budding new poker Twitch stream. Although she’s at the beginning of her streaming journey, Saliba is already finding the ups and downs of interacting with the poker community while trying to play solid poker i
  5. Twitch streaming poker professionals Jeff Gross and Jaime Staples have announced, in back-to-back days, that they have parted ways with their mutual sponsor, PokerStars. Gross and Staples were sponsored members of Team PokerStars thanks in large part to their dedication to streaming poker on their respective Twitch channels, as well as their wide-reaching online presence on YouTube and other social media outlets. Jeff Gross Steps Down On Monday, Jeff Gross released a video announcing that he “will no longer be working with or representing PokerStars” after the two sides could not come t
  6. Boasting over 13 million views and nearly 200,000 follows to his Run It UP poker stream on Twitch, Jason Sommerville is by far the most popular poker broadcaster on the site. While his average shows attract several thousand fans apiece, that number can skyrocket when the Team PokerStars Pro finds himself at a final table, playing for thousands of dollars. With that in mind, Sommerville is hosting a special World Championship of Online Poker broadcast, during which 2016 WSOP Player of the Year Jason Mercier will stream his play live in the $102,000 buy-in Super High Roller event on Sunday
  7. In an ongoing AMA on Reddit, three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Vanessa Selbst (pictured) fielded a variety of questions, including how she stacks up against online poker players. Her response may have been surprising to some: "I'd probably suck at online pokersince I basically don't ever play, don't really know how to use programs very well, and don't have a database of stats to reference." --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated
  8. Late last week, professional poker player and insanely popular online streamer Jason JCarverSomerville (pictured) was announced as the newest member of Team PokerStarsPro. It was not the most shocking of news, but it was still a welcome decision, especially after Somerville was unceremoniously dumped by Ultimate Poker. He kept streaming his online poker sessions, though, and this weekend began his first broadcasts on Twitch under the PokerStars banner. View his channel. To a poker outsider, it might not seem like much. After all, Somerville has streamed for quite some time and is just strea
  9. [caption width="640"] Jason Somerville is bringing the Aussie Millions to Twitch[/caption] There's an entire generation that grew up playing or watching Where In The World is Carmen Sandiego? It was a game show and series of video games developed to teach kids geography as they took the clues provided and attempted to capture the criminal mastermind Carmen Sandiego. There's an entire generation of poker players and fans that are learning geography, but it's not a fedora-wearing, redheaded villain, but rather a 28-year-old poker-playing, live-streaming New Yorker who is showing his ever
  10. The obsession with competition, dedication to improvement, and doing what it takes to be the best. These are just some of the themes on display in Netflix’s new binge-worthy hit The Queen’s Gambit, the mini-series that depicts a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the chess world - a world, it turns out, that is not so far from that of poker. Adapted from Walter Tevis’s novel of the same name, the new TV show tells the fictional story of chess prodigy Beth Harmon, portrayed by Anya Taylor-Joy, as she battles through her childhood struggles and breaks through into the upper echelo
  11. You’ve seen it in the movies: a group of soldiers sitting around dealing out a deck of cards, tossing some money in the middle and playing a little poker just to pass the time. It may be cliche, but for Germany’s Torsten 'Jektiss' Brinkmann that is a scene from his life. Torsten, then just 21 years old, was serving in the army when half-a-world away Chris Moneymaker was taking down the World Series of Poker Main Event. The poker boom that turned the game of poker into a global phenomenon reached as far as Torsten and his friends. The next thing he knew he and his crew started playing poker.
  12. The opening day butterflies are officially behind us as the 2018 World Series of Poker picks up steam headed into week #2. There is plenty to look forward to, including a long list of upcoming bracelet events as well as plenty of opportunities for fans to tune in to Twitch or PokerGo to rail the action. Welcome Weekend Warriors, Value Hunters This week is rife with tournaments for those looking to play some of the lower buy-in events with hopes to bink a bracelet. The week starts off with the final two flights of the mammoth Colossus event. Monday is the final day for players to find a ba
  13. [caption width="640"] Scott Blumstein is ready to enter a new stage in his poker career with a little help from Jimmy V.[/caption] “If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day.” Those words were spoken by famed college basketball coach Jim Valvano during the 1993 ESPY awards and his speech has lived long past his death to inspire many. A fan of Valvano’s, Scott ‘Sblum2711’ Blumstein is hoping to use those words to embolden him and his soon to be captive audience. If everyone is fighting a struggle, Blumstein would be the first to say that his is weight, which stems from a c
  14. [caption width="640"] Parker 'tonkaaaap' Talbot represents a new breed of poker superstar for 888poker.[/caption] Nine months ago 888poker added another player to their impressive group of ambassadors that might have left casual poker observers asking themselves, 'Uhh, who the hell is Parker Talbot?' 888poker's team of ambassadors already included the likes of online poker's all-time tournament earnings leader Chris Moorman, Sweden's Sofia Lovgren, German prodigy Dominik Nitsche and one of the hardest working people in the industry, Kara Scott. Adding Talbot might have seemed like an od
  15. "This just in: I Twitched while checking out porn without realizing it." Those were the words of Casey bigdogpckt5sJarzabek (pictured), who was promptly banned from Twitch for violating its Terms of Service. The incident came a few months after a poker player was robbed during a live streamand serves as a warning for those of you using Twitch. Read the thread. Editor's Note: After this article was published, Jarzabek's Twitch ban was lifted. PocketFives: Thank you for joining us. Where are you with Twitch? Casey Jarzabek: Not a word.

Read how Somerville has pioneered poker on Twitch. PocketFives: Thank you for joining us. How have you been enjoying playing poker on Twitch? Jason Somerville: It has been going great.

  17. "I'd love to be a poker player forever. I would love to do what Doyle Brunson did, obviously who wouldn't?" You may not recognize him now that he chopped off all of his hair, trimmed his bushy beard, and has a swollen black eye from a bike-riding adventure gone wrong, but Arlie Shaban is showing up everywhere in poker right now. The Big Brother Canada contestant turned Enterprise Rent-A-Car 9-5er has a new role as a Herculean. His rise has been fast and it doesn't look like he's slowing down anytime soon, especially now that Shaban has the likes of Jason Somerville, the Twitch Poker communi
  18. George 'ShroomTheRiver' Davidson has been playing online poker seriously for close to 10 years now, but he’s been around the game for much longer than that, playing for sweets with his family long before he took it up more competitively. "I don't think there was any avoiding it to be honest," Davidson said of how he got into poker. "My uncle has played live professionally since I was a little one, and as early as four years old I can remember playing cards with my nan for sweets and pocket money. It started out with bingo and rummy but poker wasn't too far behind." Fast forward a whole bun
  19. [caption width="640"] Randy 'Nanonoko' Lew's Twitch stream is quickly approaching a million views.[/caption] Some Twitch streams are drier than the Mojave Desert. Some are full of high-level cash game content. Some are full of high-level tournament content. Some are merely gibberish. Twitch is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get. Enter Team PokerStars Pro Randy 'Nanonoko' Lew, whose Twitch stream is quickly approaching a million views. He's also at over 31,000 followers. And he's not stopping there. "I always thought the fans were what made me someone in
  20. On Tuesday, Daniel Negreanu (pictured) took the world of Twitchby storm. Negreanu, camped out in Toronto, attracted a whopping 150,000 views in his first Twitch session. He Tweeted beforehand, "Thanks again to @jaimestaples for helping me set up @twitch and @JasonSomerville for making this platform cool. That was fun! More to come." Check out Negreanu's Twitch channel. Negreanu, predictably, only streamed his play on PokerStars and said on Twitter that setting up his channel required a little assistance: "This kid @jaimestaples is a freaking genius lol. I have no clue how these kids figure
  21. According to his Twitter account, the boisterous ChicagoJoey(pictured) will be live-streaming PLO on Twitch for 750 straight days. Yes, that's more than two years. A week ago, he Tweeted, "Will be streaming some form of PLO on @Twitch for the next 750 days straight (no joke)." No joke indeed. He added that most of what he'd be playing was "as Level 1 as it gets." On March 27, last Friday, ChicagoJoey Tweeted, "Day 4 of 750 straight day challenge is in the books. Thanks to the hardcores for making it fun! Back tomorrow." Monday is Day #7. He did an interview with NutBlocker and said of th

  23. WSOP bracelet winner Jason JCarverSomerville is on the forefront of poker players using the video streaming site Twitchto broadcast online sessions to fans in near-real-time. The 27-year-old Hold'em specialist believes the site offers an engaging experience that most mainstream poker shows can't match. Check out Somerville's Twitch stream. "It's hard to make poker content fit in hour-long blocks that are meant for an older audience that doesn't quite get it," Somerville told PokerListingsin an interview. "It's not a good fit for television. Twitch and live-streaming on the internet is the
  24. [caption width="640"] Jeff Gross is the newest addition to Team PokerStars.[/caption] For the last couple of years Jeff Gross has been working hard to build a social media following and Twitch audience.
