Especially on Twitch, Live Poker Streaming has become an enormous sensation. So far, there has been no one who had a bigger live score than ‘SolidPenis’, a Russian poker player, although some have won and lost big while streaming.
On PokerStars France Mr. SolidPenis took down €250,000 after signing up for a €25 Spin & Go. Such a massive win has never happened before wile streaming. Not even Jason Somerville.
For someone who has never won a large sum of cash before, winning this amount of money could come as a quite a big shock. At first he appeared to be in a natural shock. Was he just imaging this or was it real?
As anyone would in that situation, he started celebrating once the shock wore off. The goofy scren name remained but now with an extra lot of money.
The previous live streaming record, $162,952, was held by one of the top high stakes pros in te world, Doug Polk. Earlier this year, on PokerStars, he set that record in a $700 buy-in tournament.
Taking Off – Poker Live Streaming
The concept of live streaming has become more popular, although online poker has declined in popularity. Nowadays, talented pros often perform in front of live audiences:
‘The live streaming concept allows poker fans to catch a glimpse of what it’s like to play poker for a living and pick up on some valuable poker strategy tips. The best streamers are those who know how to engage the audience, and also don’t suck at poker.’
This is probably one of the reasons that Somerville is now the top online poker streamer. The massive audience has caught on with his ‘Run It Up’ catchphrase. With his unique way of engaging his audience, Jason Somerville is one of the most charismatic poker players.
Down To Earth
SolidPenis appeared to be quite humble after his big winning.
‘I have no words. What important thing can I say at this moment? Be kind to everyone, believe in love, and I won’t say I deserved it or didn’t deserve it’.
