Five of the Best Poker Twitch Streamers
Hundreds of poker players head to Twitch every day and stream their sessions in real-time. Twitch has exploded in popularity in recent times with streamers showcasing their poker skills. Videos games are another huge section of the streaming site, but we are a poker site so we’ll cover poker streamers.
The best Twitch streamers are not only great players but entertainers too. They give you an insight into top drawer strategy and glimpses into these stars’ lives. Here are our five favorites.
King of Poker Twitch Lex Veldhuis
Lex Veldhuis’ Twitch channel is pulling in record viewing figures. The Team PokerStars pro always had a popular channel but it’s a massive understatement to say it has exploded recently. He now has more than 240,000 followers and often sees 20,000 or more peak viewers.
Being open, accessible, fun, and pretty damned good at poker is Veldhuis’ strengths. He ensures he always interacts with his army of followers and dishes out prizes like confetti.
Veldhuis is a loose-aggressive player so watching him in action is always fun. The Dutchman has almost $1.8 million in online MTT winnings and nearly $700,000 in live earnings.
Jaime Staples Is One of the Original Twitch Streamers
Jaime Staples is one of the most popular Twitch streamers on the planet. He was once flying the PokerStars flag but is now a member of partypoker’s Team Online.
Check out his Twitch channel if you want a wide variety of poker content. Staples spends a significant amount of time grinding mid-to-high stakes online tournaments. It’s fair to say he’s good at them as he is approaching $1.3 million in cashes.
Staples also interviews poker’s star each week for the Weekly Poker Showdown. Tune into him if you want to watch one the best all-round twitch streams around.
Matt Staples Is Attracting New Twitch Followers in Droves
Matt Staples is the younger brother of Jaime Staples but he certainly doesn’t live in his brother’s shadow. Staples the younger has more than 85,000 followers, a number that increases daily. Viewers from around the world to watch him play a busy schedule of mid-to-high stakes tournaments online at partypoker.
Matt Staples’ game has come on in leaps and bounds over the past year. His results have given him a bankroll sufficient enough for higher stakes. The higher he plays, the more fans he gains. The sky is the limit for this young Canadian.
Everything is Easy With Fintan “EasyWithAces” Hand
Irishman Fintan “EasyWithAces” Hand was a poker dealer before realising he made more money as a player. Hand doesn’t play for the highest stakes but his Twitch streams are up there with the very best.
Hand is an advocate for making streaming poker fun and more interactive. He’s achieving this for sure. Hand is approaching 88,000 followers and usually has several thousand concurrent viewers each time he logs on.
From $5 MTTs to High Stakes With Hristivoje “ALLinPav” Pavlovic
Hristivoje Pavlovic isn’t a name you’re likely to know but you will know his alias “ALLinPAV”. The 26-year-old Australian now lives in New Zealand so he can continue playing online poker. Moving to a country where online poker is legal has proven to be a very profitable decision.
It’s amazing to think Pavlovic was grinding $5 buy-ins with a $400 bankroll only two years ago. He now plays, literally, anything and everything. Pavlovic has racked up more than $1.5 million in cashes, most of it while live on Twitch. Check him out if you like your Twitch streamers to be full of boundless energy.
These are only five of dozens of streams we could talk about. Others worth checking out are the likes of partypoker, PokerStars, and the World Poker Tour. You could watch Daniel Negreanu had he not been banned from Twitch. Tune in tomorrow to find out why.
